I highly recommend Beijing Heng Cheng Xie Qing Yong Optical Shop which is located on the 4th floor of Beijing Glasses City (Shop 407). I bought four pairs of glasses (incl prescription lenses) for US$60. Only took 30 minutes to make too. Whilst the staff don't really speak English they will do all they can to communicate with pictures and drawings. Most of the shops in this area are one-in-the-same but this store stood out from the rest.

While in Beijing in early November, I went to Beijing Glasses CIty (the store name), 43 Huawei Bell, Panjianyan, Dongsanhuan Nanlu and bought some glasses. I could not have been more pleased. I had my prescription, which is for progressive lens with a stigma adjustment. I ordered them on Wednesday and picked them up on Friday; they were perfect! They did a brief eye exam and although the English was limited, we got along just fine. When we returned on Friday, they were excited to see me and couldn't wait for me to try on the glasses. I paid about $95 for them (not a great negotiator) but feel I got a very good deal. Not only that but if you go to the right upon leaving the store, there is a wonderful French bakery about a block away.
