Dear Zenni So my Facebook feed became

Dear Zenni: So my Facebook feed became filled with knock-off alternatives to you after I loaded one of your web pages.

You might want to carefully look at who your advertising partners are, if they're gonna focus on taking your business...

I'm newly into glasses and learning about this online glasses ordering stuff.

Do you order glasses online? If so, would you buy from Zenni?

I have bought from Zenni several times, and am super happy with everything I've gotten from them. Optically they've been better than pairs I've paid many hundreds of dollars for.

I am currently on my backup pair, these round frames, because I don't know where I set aside my current set of Zenni Castro glasses, which get me lots of positive comments.

One more newbie question...

What do you do about measuring PD? Zenni has an app that takes a picture but I have a hard time believing it is accurate to the single mm.

Take a picture with a ruler in front of your face, from the distance you want to be focusing at. I mean, I think most prescriptions also include PD, but that's worked for me. And because of the whole focus distance thing, PD has a lot of flex in it, you don't really need to be mm accurate.

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
