I’ve just lost my prescription sunglasses (bifocals) and rather than get them here in Canada, I thought it might be cheaper to get them in Zihua. We are heading down Nov. 1. Any info would be much appreciated

Not sure about availability in Zihua. I do have a suggestion: have you tried Warby Parker? I checked and they are in Canada: https://ca.warbyparker.com

Prices seem fair to me, and my experience has been amazing.

Either of the services I list on my website should be able to make the glasses you want at considerable savings.

If you have your prescription, you might want to take it to Costco in Bellingham.
Their prices are pretty good and usually available in a week.

I too get my glasses made at Costco. Quite reasonably priced and a good selection of frames. I've never had a problem with them, in close to 25 years. I even returned a pair once because the non-glare stuff wore off. They made me a new set of lenses, no charge.

I have had both prescription glasses and sunglasses filled at the optical store across from the cashiers in Mega Soriana. The cost was one third to one half of what I paid in the US. Takes about 4 working days.

They are the same people as Óptica Clínica, and they prefer to do their testing at their downtown office.

Thanks everyone. I'm pretty sure I'll go with the Zihua ones. We have a Costco here, but our membership has lapsed and they still seem pretty expensive compared to Zihua. Cheers

I just ordered my first pair of glasses (sunglasses) on-line from from Zenni Optical. Nice aviators. Progressive lenses. They work just fine. They look sharp.

Under $100 US complete and delivered in about a week. I became a believer.
