So Disappointed.

I was very impressed with selection. However, when I got my glasses I couldn't see clearly.  I called FD and they encouraged me to 'give them a while' to adjust to progressive lens. I called at the 1-month mark and said I still can’t see correctly and can't wear them. In full disclosure they offered that I could send them back and they would look at them. I said I can tell the lenses have the pupils placed in the wrong location, and looking at them wont help.  So they said I could take them to an eye doctor and get my PH/PD measurements taken.  So I scheduled another eye doctor appointment. Doctor confirmed the Pupil Height and Distance was placed incorrectly by Frames Direct for both eyes.  I contacted Frames Direct and informed them that a doctor confirmed they were made incorrectly.  They requested I go back to the doctor again and have the doctor put dots on the lenses where the pupils should have been and then send them back. I scheduled with doctor again. I sent them back with dots on the lenses. FD could see glasses and lenses were in brand new perfect condition and still are. They informed me that now too much time has passed and I will have to pay again to have my lenses made correctly. (but they would offer a 50% discount).

 They made them wrong, encouraged me to 'give them time' then instructed me to go back to doctor twice, then told me too much time had passed. It just feels like I was played. The Frames Direct measurement system using a CD is highly inaccurate. (confirmed by a doctor)

Fine Print at Frames Direct states if you contact them within 30 days and notify them of difficulty they guarantee replacement. I did contact them within 30 days, and followed their instructions and they still refused to replace the lenses. Again, in full disclosure, it did take me a couple months to schedule the 2 doctor appointments required due to business travel. I clearly communicated this with them and they encouraged me to still schedule the 2nd appointment and have the dots marked on the lens in the correct spots.  When I sent them back as we had discussed, they refused to correct the lenses and sent them back in unwearable condition with the brand new premium all options package including dark transitions lens that is useless. 100% confirmed a MFG error based on their proprietary CD selfie system and would have been So easy to resolve now with accurate measurements provided at their request.

This was my first time ordering glasses online. Wasn't sure if it was going to work out as it is much easier to try on frames than to rely just on the measurements of your previous glasses. It did work out though and I really like the new frames I picked out.

Plan to buy my next pair this way since it is much cheaper even though you do have to be a bit more careful double checking the measurements.
Pros
I like my glasses
Cons
Was worried about ordering online
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

DO NOT PURCHASE, despite numerous emails stating they cannot process my order, when told to cancel they attempted to charge a 10% restocking fee! FORWARD to all your friends and avoid!

The frames were delivered I order in the time they said but I wish it was a little sooner

They are pretty similar to my old ones except much lighter. I had upgraded lenses installed and they made my new glasses look really good. I picked these frames because they look good and they are almost Indestructible, and they weigh almost nothing. Combined with the upgrade lenses which are much thinner these new glasses from Frames Direct are the lightest pair of glasses I have ever owned.

No more read marks on my nose from were my glasses use to sit 😄😊
Pros
Excellent selection of frames
Cons
Longer to process my order than I like
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

This is a company that has no interest in you as a customer. They measured my eyes wrong based on some terrible photo thing they make you send in, they didn't inform me that they can't fill my prescription the same as my local eyeglass company because they don't offer the same options but put my order through anyways, and charged me over $200 for cancelling my order of $700 because it was already in the lab. They were willing to change the lenses though for free (meaning they would throw the old lenses away and make new ones, yet they would not credit me back for my full purchase. After hours on the phone with framesdirect.com I realized they were not interested in helping. I filed with the Texas AG and will also file with my local AG as well.  

I took my complaint all the way to the top and was greeted with "you should read the fine print". Perhaps I should have, but then I thought maybe you would be a reputable company. A special thanks to Kelly S and Travis G for wasting and additional 2 hours of my time just to tell me that you won't help me. Like the Comcast of eyeglasses.

Trust me when I say it's not worth the "savings", my local place ended up being cheaper anyways and get this... they value me as a customer!
