Got Geek?

I’m a bottom-of-a-Coke-bottle-glasses kind of girl. I wish I wasn’t, but I am. And it’s time to update my Coke bottle bearing frames.
Now begins my hunt for the best priced pair of prescription eyeglasses.
First up:
It’s tough for me to buy eyeglasses online – I wouldn’t buy them from any company who doesn’t offer a “virtual mirror” feature like this:

After using the virtual mirror, I’m considering these frames (not even kidding – they have a “vintage/nerdy” filter, haha):
This pair of frames, lenses included, will cost me $89!  With the high index lenses, it will cost an additional $29.  I’m a sucker for the coatings (special price for all three = $20.)  They are currently running an additional 30% off a pair (use code SPRINGSAVINGS.)  Shipping is free (within the US, use code FREESHIP10.) How much will these glasses cost me (pre-tax)?
Would you order glasses online?
p.s. did you see the way I integrated an awesome math word problem into my post?
I’m such a geek!

    I've tried to order online…and hit a wall when the maker learned I wore bifocals. And now, I need to get a new prescription. I love the photo!

    Your glasses in the first picture are so cute! I love the phone too 🙂

    Thanks! That's a Pottery Barn phone The Mr bought for me for Christmas years ago.

    I think I saw an option for bifocals. If you click on a pair of frames, scroll down…..that's where I found the lens and coating options.

Leave your two cents here (three cents is always better!)
