Cheap replacement glasses lenses in the Bay Area?
posted by fake to clothing, beauty, & fashion (5 answers total) 4 users marked this as a favorite
I have an old pair of prescription safety glasses. I need to replace the lenses. I've called dozens of eyewear places, and the cheapest replacement lenses cost over $90 and take, on average, a week and a half to create. The high end was $200 and "at least two weeks". This seems wrong to me.
When I was in Fargo (and also Los Angeles), I was always able to find a local shop to do it for around $50 with two-day turnaround. Where can I find this in the Bay Area? I'm willing to drive for a deal.
Side question: can someone please explain why the process takes so long?
