My Fiance had to glue his 700 dollar glasses, the stem broke, and I don't know how long this is going to last I heard that Zenni Optical is a good choice online, and not that expensive, he bought his pair when he had insurance from work, they were progressives, and tortoiseshell really nice glasses, and I found a pair on Zenni Optical. Do you think I can call the place he originally got his prescription, LensCrafters, and find his prescription, bridge, and all the other things I need to know when buying glasses online for him?
Thank you for your post, and please reply, he is in a Restitution Center/halfway house like 2 miles from me, I wish I could just walk in, but it isn't that way, he needs his glasses for work.
Please Reply,
Thank you again,

Welcome to Prison Talk. I moved your question to the Nevada prison forums for better answers.

You can try calling Lens Crafters, but you may find that his prescription has expired. I have no idea how HWH's operate in Nevada, but he may be able to get a pass to visit Walmart or any other store that has an optician, and sells glasses.
