Buying glasses with progressive lenses.

Last year I finally bought a pair of prescription glasses with progressive lenses that I bought from my local JC Penneys optical center. The service and selection at Penneys were okay, but I never seemed to be able to get used to the glasses and I''m not sure if the fit was ever done correctly. The glasses cost around $400.00. \ \ A few days ago I found that my new puppy had chewed the frames and lenses, and that they were out of warranty. Instead of JC Penney, I went to an independent optician, just to see what they had to offer. I found that the optician had more "high end" frames, and that the cost of frames lenses would be $700.00. \ \ Does this cost sound reasonable? Any advantage to buying from a chain (Eyeglass Express, Lenscrafters) vs an independent optician? Have any of you had difficulties adjusting to progressive lenses?
