Where to purchase fake glasses

I found two websites where I can purchase fake glasses somewhat similar to what I need. Zennioptical.com and eyebuydirect.com Are either of these sites reliable? Is there a better one? I need a pair of oval rimless glasses.

Thank you! With rimless glasses you have a wide selection of lenses. It almost seemed too good to be true.

Can also vouch for Zenni, my last 3 pairs have come from them including Wicke's hard-to-find style. I need prescription glasses so it's been nice being able to get costume styles that are still functional for me. My Mei ones (plus a non-costume pair) just came in yesterday and they're great so far!

also use zenni for my reall glasses,

just make sure you take your frame sizing measurements properly

i was trying to aviod nose pieces for my regular lenses and the plastic frames i got
were small and i had to grind the front of the temples to make them opem wider
and curve the ears

(i mean small as in they fit my mom, and she has to shop childerens frames in the stores to find a fit)

the plastic frames are meant to be shaped using hot tap water
but didnt work for me, so i brought a pot to near boil let it cool till a bit
and used that (just be carefull and use quick dips till you know its safe for a 5-10 sec dip)

also gota say my sunglasses i got were crap tons cheaper on zenni
i got 80-90% tint, mirrored, polarised, and higher grade lens material
for total near $120 usd
as opposed to the pair i got at eyemart which costed over 100 for the frames
and nearly the same for polarized 40-50% tint plastic lenses (totaled $220)
