Former City Paper intern Susan Cohen tipped us off to a website that sells super cheap prescription eyeglasses, starting at $8. Sure, it sounds too good to be true, but six months after her purchase, here’s what she’s got to say about the site: “It is so good I want to marry it.” Zenni Optical sells everything from classic to trendy to rimless to kids’ styles. She bought this adorable pink pair (above) for just 8 bucks last summer, garnering the envy of everyone in the office. She’s still rocking them months later, with no complaints. At these prices, you could buy a handful and change your specs with your mood. Here are a few more picks for guys and gals (click on pictures for links):
