    Jai got his from Walmart one year after his were stolen from our car...

    He also went to the Florida Mall and there was a shop in ther.

    Last year he ordered some online and he got a really good deal - only thing is you can't try them on so he tried lots on here, found the frames he liked and then ordered them online. He got some Ray Bans and they worked out much cheaper.

    If you want the details send me a PM and I'll send them to you

    I'm the opposite Mick. I tried transitions on my last pair of glasses and it drove me up the wall. Great when you're outside but mine took ages to return to normal when back inside. Ok for some people but not for me working in a school. I'm in and out so much I spent half the day in darkness waiting for my lenses to fade. :lol:

    Sandra I want details please as I need new sunglasses too. :D

    Not sure about Florida but there is a shop in Poole High St that does prescription sunglasses that offer designer frames like Oakley, Ray-ban etc. Just can't remember the name of the shop. :sorry:

    My next door neighbour has the same problem. Fine going outside but when she goes back indoors I have to hold her arm for a few mins and guide her until they return to clear. Bless her!

    claire i have been down here over 2 years and been to Poole once lol i dont venture that way lol


    sandra can you let me have the details that would be great :)

    i've got them from Walmart and they are good. I would get them at the start of your holiday though as they can take a while to come. We both ordered new pairs when we went in 2007 and Jon's didn't come back in time. Guess it depends on the prescription

    Glasses can take over a week to come back so make sure you order them in plenty of time.

    I bought my last pair at Wal-Mart and let me tell you I have never received so many compliments on my glasses! I also have the transition lenses and love them. I would recommend Wal-Mart and For Eyes in regards to large chain stores for glasses.

    There are several places where you can get prescriptions for vision filled. :yes:

    Pearle, Lens Crafters, JC Penney, Sears, BJs (need a member card though) and some Targets...

    I have a wonderful vision place, with an extensive collection of designer frames. They have a lens fitter on site and often will be able to do the lenses in one day. Not always, but often.

    It's in Winter Garden about 30 minutes north of WDW.

    Yes, I honestly think it could be.

    It's the Macali Eye Clinic (Dr. Macali) on 535 (Vineland Rd.) in Winter Garden. His office is on the right as you approach State Road 50/Colonial. There is a Publix across the street (in a strip mall set up).

    Macali Eye Clinic
    MACALI EYE CLINIC - Home
    1155 Vineland Road
    Winter Garden, FL 34787-4375
