My new prescription eyeglasses from EyeBuyDirect.com arrived yesterday! I paid $10.68 including shipping!
I've used Coastal Contacts several times (new customers get a free pair plus shipping when you use code firstpairfree) and this most recent order was from Eye Buy Direct (you can use code tryus to get 15% off your order and glasses start at $6.95 a pair). I've heard that Zenni Optical is another great site for discounted glasses, too, though I haven't personally ordered from them yet.
Over the past few years, I haven't paid more than $17 shipped for a pair of regular prescription eyeglasses, and I also have ordered a pair of prescription sunglasses from Coastal Contacts for $48 shipped (though you could probably get these even cheaper through EyeBuyDirect).
To order eyeglasses online, you will need your updated prescription (Walmart does eye tests for about $50). You can upload a picture of yourself to "try on" glasses. Most sites also have free returns if you aren't satisfied with your glasses upon arrival.
Also, make sure to use ShopatHome.com to get cash back on your purchase!
