I just received my new glasses from +Zenni Optical today. I was disappointed to discover halos in the center of both lenses, apparently caused by lots of tiny scratches. The scratches are obvious when you hold the glasses near a light, so I don't know how they made it through final inspection.

In any case, I'm mailing the glasses back to Zenni for replacement. I just wish Zenni had bothered to check for defects like this in the first place. It would have saved me some hassle and them some money.
