It seems that many of my relatives purchase prescription glasses while they are in Taiwan. How is the quality and price there? And around how long does it take?
I will be in Taipei for two weeks, which should be enough time to have glasses made.
I have vision insurance here in the states, but even with insurance, it costs $200+ after adding anti-glare and upgrading to the thinnest lenses. And that's not including the ridiculous markup on frames. My optometrist only stocks famous brands with prices in the $200-$400 range. This means I usually end up paying $350 after insurance benefits for a very basic frame.
I want to get a titanium or memory-flex frame with anti-glare and the thinnest lenses possible. How much would that cost me in Taiwan?
It's too bad the US dollar is quite weak right now.
