    Cool Glasses

    I need to get new glasses and lenscrafters quoted me HK$6000 for frames and lens.....seems expensive. Anyone have any suggestions where I can get lower prices ? Live in Central.

    optical 88? they got outlets in many shopping mall, I got mine from new town plaza. Of course the frame price can vary enormously, but I got multi-coated n=1.6 lenses for 350HK$ each - leaves a lot of room for a fancy frame

    Mine cost me about $500ish including the eye test, glasses frame and lens that go dark when outside/sunny (although I'm convinced this makes me look pervy now so regret that!)

    But the frames weren't designer and my prescription isn't anything uncommon either, which both add a lot of dollar.

    I got mine from some random floor in a shopping mall in Sheung Shui, someone local introduced it to me.
