See for (almost) free!
I've been meaning to make an eye appointment soon. Might as well take advantage of my insurance to see if my prescription has changed. Also, I'm thinking of trying out contacts instead of trying to make my covered insurance amount match up with the types of frames I like to wear. Which is why an article on Slate caught my eye today.
How to get an Unbelievable, Amazing, Fantastic, Thrilling Deal on New Glasses tells about internet eyeglass shopping. And also links to GlassyEyes.com which is a blog ALL about buying glasses online. Even swimming goggles.
Seeing as how the last three pairs of glasses I've bought have been wildly overpriced (mainly because of their "designer" brand names: Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, and Burberry) I figure maybe this year I'll get contacts with insurance and maybe even be able to afford another pair of glasses if I'm so inclined.
Hmmm, I wonder if Dollar Tree has glasses?
