I need glasses to read. Basically, I use magnifying glasses because my bits are wearing out from old age. It happens. I cry myself to sleep at night. Sad, I know. But this post is not about my age related neuroses. It’s about finding inexpensive ways to compensate for my decrepitude.
Last year, I had my eye exam and bought two pairs of glasses in a well advertised package. I spent over $100 for what are basically drug store glasses. As I often forget to bring my glasses with me and I don’t treat them right when I do, I also have several of the pharmacy kind stashed everywhere. They usually cost anywhere from $15 to $20 a piece.
I have read about a new option that I think I will try the next time I need to get glasses. The Brooklyn Liberal Examiner has posted a review online that explains how you can get prescription eyeglasses starting at $8 a pair.
By cutting out the middleman and retail overhead, it is possible to get quality eyeglasses for a low cost from Zenni Optical. They use the latest modern materials and manufacturing to bring their product direct from their factories to us.
I checked out their website and they even have frames for $8 like ones I currently own. For that price, I think they a worth a chance.
