You're at the forum archive. The forums were taken down years ago due to some unfortunate astroturfing attempts by a couple retailers. At the time, I was very concerned about exposing readers to a bunch of input-that-might-be-fake, or creating a situation where the well-behaved retailers were at a disadvantage.
However, because a number of readers had posted helpful comments & reviews, and I didn't want to see it all vanish into oblivion permanently, I kept a backup around. What you're seeing now is that backup (almost 7 years old now - don't ask how I managed to get it running again...). Things are a bit scattered, and you can't post anything new (the buttons have all been disabled), but the original content is here if you're interested.

|I received the glasses I ordered from Goggles4U today. On the CCNow order status page, I was told the glasses shipped on August 11th. In actuality, they shipped on August 22nd according to the postage sticker and the custom form filled out on my package. I paid $25.00 US dollars for the glasses whereas the custom form says the value is $35.00. I did not have to pay customs but if I had of won the "pay customs lottery" this time round, I would have had to pay more. They shipped from Miami, Florida.|
The glasses themselves are the totally rimless kind where there are screws in the lenses. I bought them as a progressive pair of glasses while I am working on improving my vision naturally. Therefore I am okay with the quality of the glasses, but would be thinking they are awfully flimsy for everyday use otherwise. The coatings and the actual prescription seem fine. I think the PD is good as I don't feel any strain.
Overall, I would say I'm happy with this purchase considering the price and what I am using them for. I would highly recommend these as a back-up pair, but don't think they are cut out for heavy usage. Maybe the more expensive frames would be stronger.
P.S. I forgot to add that Goggles4U does not list the arm length on any of the glasses. I took a chance anyways and I think mine are about 140mm when I really need a 135mm. I am going to have to figure out how to adjust these myself, or take them in somewhere and pay a bit for someone else to adjust them.
