Title: Has anyone used Nihao Optical?
Post by: Loretta on January 26, 2020, 03:15:44 PM
Has anyone here used the company Nihao Optical to order economical spectacles online?  They have some very funky styles that I could embrace my inner Dame Edna with but the fact that theyíre closed for Chinese New Year has me waiting to order.  Iím done with Zenni.

I have yet to buy glasses online, but I'm intrigued. What don't you like about Zenni?

Zenni was fine, itís just that Iíve already bought their most appealing styles.  Their quality is a bit cheap compared to a couple other internet only optical choices, IMHO, Zenni is probably best for younger folk.

I'm also done with Zenni. I have two pairs that are falling apart in the same spot after about 1 year. Generally once a month I make a Superglue repair but it never holds up for too long.

I am such a cheapskate that I am planning to hold out until my next eye exam (in 10 months!) and then try a different brand. Maybe I'll check out Nihao.
