Have you tried these folk and had good luck with the product in use?
All you need is your new prescription & a little patience to be invested it shopping for the frames & other details you prefer.
One key thing: make your prescriber write your pupillary distance on your prescription. That is the distance center to center of your eyeballs.
It is critical and you cannot order without it.

Zenni is very good at making sure you transfer your prescription correctly to the order form. When I screwed one up they caught it and corrected it.

Year before last, after my 2nd cataract surgery, I ordered 3 pair:
1. Bifocals with a light tint
2. Single vision no tint just for computer & tv (a separate prescription for about 18 inches to roughly 10 feet)
3. Single vision sunglasses
I have never been happier with glasses, especially the computer glasses.
They are sooooo much more comfortable than trying to use bifocals.

If I remember correctly the total cost was $126. About half of that was the bifocals.

When I told my old buddy Harold (about my age) about Zenni he and his wife went nuts over the prices. As a bonus, he discovered that the "scratch resistant coating" that he'd been paying $30 extra for is free at Zenni. Molly wound up ordering 5 pair, he ordered 2 or 3, all for about the price he'd been paying for one pair of bifocals.
The glasses are so much cheaper than local retail that my daughter sometimes orders glasses to match a new outfit or to go with her shoes.

"Airco/Murex/Lincoln EasyArc E6011C"

My old boss used to force me to use this stuff - on structural. 7018 was clearly the correct rod to use, but I will admit even though I much prefer 7018, this was the nicest running 6011 I have ever ran.
I believe the appropriate metaphor here involves a river of excrement and a Native American water vessel without any means of propulsion.
