If you are a proud owner of Snapchat Spectacles but you cannot use them because of your prescription glasses, here's a workable solution. GlassesUSA.com has now added to its portfolio Snapchat Spectacles prescription lenses that come at a real cheap price.
Recently, Rochester Optical announced that it is now customising Snapchat Spectacles to match the needs of those who already wear glasses. But the prescription lenses by Rochester Optical do not come cheap as they start at $99 and go all the way up to $199 depending on your preferences. If you are a little short on the budget after spending $130 for Snapchat's smart glasses, GlassesUSA is here for you.
"At $29, GlassesUSA.com's prescription Snapchat Spectacle lenses are the cheapest available on the market. GlassesUSA.com was built on the philosophy that eyewear shouldn't be expensive, so they've cut the "middle man" to provide frames at about 70% cheaper than their counterparts," the company said in a statement.
So that's just $29 and you won't even have to ship your prized Spectacles over to have the prescription lenses. The DIY prescription lenses will be sent via mail in 10-12 days after placing the order along with a tutorial on how to "snap" the lenses safely into Snapchat Spectacles. Another incentive is that shipping is completely free.
GlassesUSA.com's prescription lens at $29 is for single vision only, but customers can choose from reflective prescription, tinted sunglasses, transition lenses and Digital Block (computer lenses), the company said.
If you haven't got your Snapchat Spectacles yet, note that it is not an easy task. They are available in limited quantities in select places and are selling like hot cakes. One can try grabbing the wearable from a Snapbot vending machine at a pop-up store in NYC or other temporary locations in Los Angeles.
