When it comes to eyeglasses there seems to be only two options: fashionable, designer frames that drain your wallet dry or plain-Jane, drugstore frames that look like they came right out of the movie “Tootsie.” But relief is in sight.
EyeMasters fulfilled our eyeglass wish-list: we found name brands like Nine West and Liz Claiborne, and a budget-friendly price tag of $99 for two pairs of eyeglasses. At Eyeglasses International we found designer-looking frames and trendy styles for as little as $30. And LensCrafters has a variety of frame styles in cute colors for just $100.
