I bought a pair of frame last year, and am looking to get glasses made this year. I'm in Melbourne but can also look at online too. I'm looking to get lens in high index 1.67 or higher plus transitions made, but the big chains I've asked so far are rediculously expensive, and it seems like there's some changes to private health where they used to cover most or all of the costs of getting the lenses, now it's just lenses and not the extra coatings, transitions etc.
Does anyone have any recommendations of good places to get them made? The profit margins seem to be insane, especially small no-chain stores which have been the worst.
