Shaker Thumbs is your opportunity to give a thumbs-up or thumbs-down to a product or service you have used and that you'd recommend to other Shakers or warn them away from.

Almost eight years ago (!!!), I recommended an online eyeglass retailer in this series. At some point along the way, I switched to Zenni Optical as my primary online specs shop, so I thought I'd update my recommendation for this installment of Shaker Thumbs.

Nothing ever went wrong with the other place; I just tried out Zenni and liked them better.

This is my current "spare pair" from Zenni, as back-up to the pair I got at a doctor's office. (I always have to go to an eye doctor, anyway, because I've got an eye problem that needs regular checking out with fancy equipment.) It's not the greatest picture of me, lol, but it is a nice pic of the frames!

I really like Zenni's selection and interface. Their shipping is quicker than it used to be. Their customer service isn't amazing, but it is isn't terrible, by any means. And I'm happy with the quality of the glasses I've purchased.

Anyway! Give us your thumbs-up or thumbs-down in comments!

[Just to be abundantly clear, I am not affiliated in any way with Zenni, nor am I receiving any form of payment from them. It's just a service I've personally found super useful and am happy to recommend.]
