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 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!

First and last time I will use Frames Direct. I purchased a nice looking pair of frames at what I thought was a descent price. Using the virtual try on tool they fit fine on the picture uploaded.

Well my new prescription glasses was shipped to me and when I put them on they did not fit me at all. They where way to small and pinched all along my face. The frame arms get pushed right out by the shape of my head.

When I contacted Frames Direct they said that they only sell the frames in one size and those are the ones I ordered, no help at all.

I would stay away!

I picked out my frames and I ended up picking Transition lenses as I figured I would save on purchasing sun glasses since it only cost an extra $60.

Well I got the glasses and I notice right away that their always is a bit of a tint even in a dark room. I did not realize this would happen with Transition lenses so I returned them to Frames Direct. To do this I was told I would have to loose the $60 I paid extra for the Transitions but I would have to pay another $50 to get new lenses. So now I have lost over $100 for something I ended up not wanting after I was able to physically look at the glasses. They need to change this policy.

I will not buy from Frames Direct again and just get my glasses locally so I will not have an issue like this again. Not worth the savings as in the end it will cost you more!

Cons
Do not get Transitions lenses
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
