… The quality of the glasses has been excellent too. The shipping could be a little bit faster from when the prescription is submitted though. But that's the only negative comment...

How 39DollarGlasses works

39DollarGlasses has an extensive inventory of glasses for men, women, teens and kids you can search online. You can filter your search by frame shape, material and color as well as width and temple (“arm”) length.

39DollarGlasses uses ExactFit technology to help you get a clear picture of how different glasses will look and feel on your face. With ExactFit, you must enter your pupillary distance (PD) number. If you don’t know how far apart your pupils are, use the AccuPD feature to gauge your PD. ExactFit then calculates the measurements of your face from a photograph.

You can then pick a few glasses you like and see how they look on your face. Once you’ve completed the virtual try-on and found the pair you want, you can customize details like the lens tint and optional anti-glare coating. Choose from four different lens types:

  • Single-vision for distance
  • Single-vision for reading
  • Regular bifocals with a link
  • Progressive lenses (no-line bifocals)

After you choose the lens package and enter your prescription, you can enter any coupon codes or discounts and select a shipping option.

Customer service is outstanding. I have been purchasing glasses online from 39Dollar for 12 years without any problems. This year after macular hole surgery followed by cataract surgery I had some issues with my new glasses. During the entire process to resolve my issues, 39$ customer service (Stephanie) was reachable by phone and email, and worked very proactively to resolved. In the end, I needed a revised prescription from my eye doctor. 39$ arranged for the return, remade the lenses, and monitored the shipment. For those who may be reluctant to purchase glasses online because of the perceived lack of support and interaction, my very positive experience should relieve some of those fears.

    I contacted 39dollarglasses.com because I hadn't verified my teacher status until after I submitted the order. (They offer a QR code for teachers to give to a student for a free pair of eyeglasses when teachers submit their own order.) I really wanted the QR code for one of my students. Thomas, the customer service rep I spoke with, was quick to respond, got the QR code with me and walked me through future orders so that everything is up to date. I've ordered my glasses from here since 2018 and I've never had an issue with them. I would highly recommend ordering glasses from them.

    I had a problem with two of the three pairs of eyeglasses I purchased online. One had the wrong prescription and the other were sunglasses that weren't dark enough. I had a couple of calls with Tiffany, your customer-service representative, and I am so pleased to report that she was knowledgeable, helpful, and most pleasant. She even made a call to your lab manager to find out if something I wanted could be done. This is not the first time I have had excellent service from your company -- I recommend you to anyone who asks. Kudos to you for knowing what good customer service is and for having the smarts to have Tiffany on your team.

    Thanks,

    Roberta

    I had ordered a pair of glasses in September. One of the arms just literally fell out of the frame. I called and spoke with Tiffany. She was able to get me a replacement frame and send me a video of how to swap the lenses. The color I wanted was out of stock so she swapped it out for Gunmetal. The day my replacements arrived, Tiffany reached out to tell me the black frames were back in stock and asked if I preferred the black even though the Gunmetal was already sent. She had them sent out so I can choose which ones I prefer. WOW. What amazing service. Thank you Tiffany and 39dollar glasses. You all are amazing.

    Oh my goodness! I had the most wonderful experience with Tiffany F. today. I wish all persons who work in sales/customer service was as patient, friendly and knowledgeable as she was in helping me place my order for glasses today. I was a bit put out with 39dollarglasses because of the long wait I had. But after working with Tiffany that was all erased. I knew what glasses I wanted to order but with all of the add-ons it was a bit over my budget. I am a cancer patient on a fixed income. Tiffany knew of another pair that was the same style and color that I wanted at a more reasonable price. She also told me of a credit that I didn't know I had. So along with my coupon code, it brought my price down to a more manageable price. She was also very helpful in telling me about features on my RX to help me with the process of ordering my glasses.

    I have been trying to order these glasses myself online for months, to no avail. Then I tried again today and my laptop broke. I thought I would take the chance and call in. I'm so glad I did. Tiffany was great! I know my review is long. But I just want you to know how much I appreciate getting Tiffany today. PLEASE let her know she made a customer very happy today. I hope I get her tomorrow when I order glasses for my husband. Thanks again, Tiffany!

    Original review: July 29, 2022

    I ordered the Bellamy glasses on 4/23/22 and received them early May. I only realized a couple weeks ago that they were defective beyond my ability to repair them and contacted 39dollarglasses.com as I had thought this could be fixed. The glasses were too large for my face, and slid down my nose. The biggest issue however was the glasses sitting crooked on my face. I attempted to fix this at home after watching many videos, and tried several times. I even sent them to a shop to be looked at. This took time to coordinate. But 39dollarglasses.com informed me that the glasses couldn’t be fixed and I could only exchange. I was refused a refund. I emailed and called. I explained that this is the second subpar product now that I have purchased from 39dollarglasses.com, I do not wish to have anymore, and I’m only interested in a refund so I can purchase a better pair somewhere else.

    I expressed my frustration to the support staff on the phone, Tiffany, and left the call. I received an unprofessional email back guilt tripping me about how she didn’t have to help me out as much as she did.. I no longer wish to speak with or do business with 39dollarglasses.com. I am currently in disputes with this company for a refund.

    I appreciate the time and care that Tiffany took to make sure that I could fix an issue with my order. She's a credit to your company, and my positive experience also shows that the managerial staff there cares as well. Thanks for your help.

    The selection that 39dollarglasses.com has online works for me. I've been getting the same two styles for the past 15 years. The reps are friendly and very helpful. Plus, the prices are very good.

    Twice I called for status to find out that first my glasses failed inspection; and 1 1/2 weeks later that the lenses that I ordered are no longer available. They never contacted me about problems and now for the second time another up charge of $60 on top of the last up charge of $50. These are no longer affordable prices. I could go anywhere and get better service.
