Best Women’s Glasses Under $100
For super affordable glasses, your best bet is to go with plastic frames. Just be careful that you don’t go too cheap though as the frames may break or crack easily. This classic rectangle frame from Zenni is a good mix of budget-friendly and durability.
Single-vision Rx lenses are even included, with anti-scratch coating & UV protection to boot.
If metal frames are more your style, this stylish pair in silver are a great pick. Large round lenses and adjustable nose pads ensure a good field of vision and fit. This includes prescription 1.50-index lenses with anti-scratch and anti-reflective coatings.
You can also get it with thinner lenses and UV-coating for a little more.
If you’re looking for a semi-rimless frame, this pair is a knockout with it’s subtle cat eye lift. EyeBuyDirect’s Melody in red is one of our faves and gets rave reviews for how lightweight and comfortable it is to wear.
Available with standard CR-39 lenses for $45.95 or polycarbonate 1.59 index for $57.95.
Or maybe you’d prefer a more dramatic cat eye with Vicci Eyewear’s Chiara, a gorgeous jet black acetate frame that just oozes style and femininity. The medium width fits most faces, and single-vision Rx lenses are included in the price.
It even comes with a protective hard case and microfiber cloth. This one’s an absolute steal!
For a classic tortoiseshell frame, it’s hard to beat Liingo Eyewear’s Adele. It’s available in a clear rose crystal or a solid black as well. It even comes complete with premium polycarbonate (1.59-index) lenses with 100% UV-protection, anti-scratch, and anti-reflective treatments in your single-vision Rx lenses.

Best Men’s Glasses Under $100
This round tortoiseshell frame from Zenni is easy on the eyes and wallet at just $15.95 including single vision lenses. It’s highly rated by past purchasers (4.5 out of 5 stars) and goes great with all looks from casual to business.
Another winner for under $20! This stainless steel frame comes in jet black and has adjustable nose pads. The rectangular lenses are streamlined and sophisticated with sturdy temple arms to keep them put.
If you’re looking for a totally rimless pair, this silver round lens frame hits the mark for not too much dough. Word to the wise – rimless frames are best if you have a light prescription. Otherwise your lenses will be too thick to support unless you pay more for a higher index (i.e. thinner) lens.
A classic tall rectangle pair, this amber-hued tortoise frame from Vicci Eyewear cuts a fine look on those with rounder features. Spring hinges on the temples give enough flexibility for comfort and it even comes with a 365-day guarantee against defects.
Oh, and did we mention single-vision Rx lenses are included in the price? Can’t beat that with a stick.
Our last pick for men is still well under $100 all-in with a great lens package. This clear frame sports round lenses and includes premium polycarbonate 1.59 index prescription lenses, anti-scratch and reflective coatings, as well as UV-blocking in the cost.
From EyeBuyDirect’s premium RFLKT line, people rave about how the quality compares with frames that cost a few hundred dollars.
