Have you checked out the cost of eye glasses lately? One of the reasons I am still wearing my same pair of glasses after 9 years is the cost of a new pair. I couldn't see spending $100 or more for a pair of glasses, that is until I checked out Zenni Optical
For $19.00 plus shipping and handling I can get the glasses I want with my prescription. You can even upload a photo and try on various frames if you are wanting to try a new look or reaffirm the old style is really what you want. .
A recent Time magazine article and response from a reader put the whole thing in perspective. No one needs to spend $1000 to get the glasses they need and look good too. When money is tight and insurance restrictions in place companies like Zenni Optical are a great source for fashionable eye wear at a fraction of the cost. I don't think I could get a pair of great looking simple glasses even at our local warehouse club for that price. Everyone should at least check into all their options before purchasing their next pair of glasses to make sure you aren't over spending, you never know you may find a new style that fits you.
