So, I'm looking for recommendations for a low cost way of getting new eyeglasses in Portland. From the scant research I've done so far, it looks like the best plan is to get an eye exam and then order from a website. But where to get the exam in PDX? And, also, is America's Best Contacts and Eyeglasses really a scam? Any personal experiences with them or other Portland places appreciated. Oh, also, I have no health insurance. Thanks!

Soooo I need glasses. I have wore contacts for the last 5 years and would like to buy some designer frames. I usually get spectacular deals by buying my contacts online rather than on my local shop. How can I recreate the process with eye-glasses? [more inside]
A couple of years ago, I tried on a pair of women's eyeglasses with very light pink thickish rectangular frames at Lenscrafters. The arms were also fairly thick. I believe they were DKNY or Donna Karan. They also came in black. Can you help me find them? [more inside]
Is there somewhere cheap & reliable in Canada (online or by mail) where I can send my prescription glasses and sunglasses frames to be relensed in my own prescription? I have purchased some funky/vintage frames online and would like to have my prescription put in them but the local optical shops are charging $200+ and I just can't afford that for each pair of glasses (I have just purchased several pairs). I see there are some US-based sites (that probably ship overseas which is OK) but none seem to be available in Canada. Bonus if you can give me a personal recommendation. Thanks!

I'm considering wearing contact lenses again in lieu of eyeglasses to make working with camera viewfinders easier. I've worn glasses since i was a kid. Got the usual array of problems: Nearsightedness, astigmatism, presbyopia. Currently wear progressive lenses in my glasses. However, I find reading with my progressive lenses is unpleasant, so I usually take them off. I use a separate pair of glasses for computer work. I was fitted with a test pair of soft monovision lenses last week. They're not going to work. Close vision -- within arm's reach -- is unacceptable. I told the clinician I wanted contacts to provide vision correction at least as good as my glasses. I want any contacts I wear to work at distance vision, close vision, reading, driving, computer work, etc. She replied that I wouldn't get that with contacts. Is she right?
