Best eyeglasses under $100

Whether you’re looking for a new primary pair of glasses or just want another frame to add to your arsenal, good eyeglasses don’t have to break the bank.

From stylish bold choices to understated classics, we’ve gathered prescription frames to fit your style and your budget. And that doesn’t mean you need to skimp on quality or style either.

Fashionable backup glasses, designer favorites, or timeless frames—we’ve got you covered. Read on for 10 of EZ Contacts’ best eyeglasses for under $100.


Cat-eyes are a classic frame for a reason: the frame shape is ultra-flattering. The up-turned silhouette makes cheekbones feel high and lifted. A tortoiseshell cat-eye is an ageless eyeglass choice, offering style, timelessness, and flattering angles all for $75.


Pink translucent frames are a great way to brighten your face and introduce color into your everyday look. To ease into the trend, try a frame like these from Paradigm. The classic shape is balanced with the fun modern colorway.


Whether you’re looking to evoke the ‘50s feel or just appreciate the classics, vintage-inspired shapes are definitely cool again. The iconic shape is flattering on almost all face shapes, men or women, young or old. These browline eyeglasses are just $35 and will be a welcome retro addition to your eyeglass collection.


Oversized square frames have taken over both sunglass and eyeglass trends with their statement style. For a subtle ‘70s-inspired look, try out an oversized square wireframe. They offer a more demure look than an acetate frame and the square silhouette perfectly suits those with round and oval faces. 


Round frames are a classic frame choice, but that doesn’t have to mean boring. These frames from Tommy Hilfiger offer modernity in the transparent acetate and the unique slate grey color choice. They’re the perfect way to have a darker frame that doesn’t feel harsh against your skin tone.


For under $100, you can still make a bold fashion choice with your glasses. These geometric frames from Marc Jacobs offer a unique shape and come with a fashionable removable eyeglass chain. With glasses priced this low, you can utilize multiple frames to complete your outfits with your favorite eyeglasses as an accessory.


Take a twist on tortoiseshell with these oversized frames from Kensie Devotion. Instead of the normal neutrals, these frames incorporate blue, aqua, turquoise, and browns. It helps subtly infuse color into your look without feeling over the top.


If you’re looking to get into the ‘70s eyewear trend without breaking the bank, try out these Marchonyc frames for just $62. The wireframe aviator feels trendy, but it’s actually a classic frame shape that will flatter almost any face shape.

Bold colors

If you’re ready to go bold on your next pair of glasses, these are the ultra-stylish frames for you. Embrace the trendiest color pairing of the season with a red frame and translucent pink trim. Don’t worry if red isn’t for you, they also have neutral frames in black and tortoiseshell or other bold choices like green or blue.


It’s still possible to get designer brands on a budget. Case in point: these Tory Burch frames. These under-$100-frames will last well beyond the trend of the time thanks to their timeless shape and pattern. Because of the compact rectangular frame, these glasses would be most flattering on round face shapes.

Tory Burch TY2108U

Whether you’re looking for your first pair of glasses, or your second, third, or fourth pair, everyone appreciates a great frame for a low price. Embrace the latest trends, try on something new, or add a just-in-case backup with these under-$100 eyeglasses from EZContacts.
