My New Glasses

I tried to find some stylish way to display my glasses together but all I accomplished was getting my fingerprints all over them so we’re going for the side-by-side view.

I finally got my eyeballs checked. I think it was in August. I spend so much time looking for my glasses that I decided to buy some extra pairs so I can have one in my backpack and one by my bed and one by my desk, etc.

A long time ago I read this post about buying cheap eyewear online.

It’s been a long time since I bought glasses but I do remember them being absurdly expensive. Especially if you wear the graduated lenses or whatever they’re called. I can’t find the folder right now and don’t really want to look up the proper terms. I bought bifocals from the eye doctor place and even with insurance and the doctor office discount I still handed over a wad of money.

If you read the article linked about about eyewear mark-up, it’s a little disturbing.

I tried the bargain method using and I just bought plain old reading glasses with the scratch-free coating and those two pairs, shipping and all, were $68 together. They are a tad “plasticky” and possibly not the most stylish but $68 for two pairs. I’m happy.

The sun is shining so I’m going to run out and do some work. Then I’ve got cooking projects.

I have got another insanely busy week ahead up-to-and-including every day next weekend. I’m not going to have time to pull my socks up until next week.

    I wish I didn't know about this. What better way to procrastinate than to see how many different colorful pairs of cheap glasses I can afford? I wonder if this would really work with a prescription as high as mine…

    I wore glasses like those pink ones when I was in 2nd grade, only mine were blue. Cheap is good, though. I'll have to check that link out next time I get glasses. I'm also going to start going to Mexico for all my dental work.
