How To Get Eye Glasses For A Fraction Of The Price
A couple years ago I went in to see an eye doctor. Although I wear glasses as I am near sighted I had been wearing the same glasses for eight years and had not seen an eye doctor is about that long as well. Not surprisingly my prescription had changed quite a bit and I needed new glasses. After my exam I was given my prescription and given a quote for frames and lenses. Altogether my new glasses would cost me $500. After leaving and getting several other retail quotes I realized that the price would range between $450 - $550.
Thinking about spending that much on eye glasses seem a little ridiculous to me. I wondered if mabye I should just hold on to my old glasses for a little while. After all they had seen me through a lot my previous job and even while I was in flight training. If I could see just fine to land a plane and fly through cloud cover and at night(even though I wasn't supposed to be doing the last couple) then they should be good enough awhile longer.
But I knew eventually I would need to purchase new glasses and I would just be paying it then if not now so I decided to just buy them. The day before I was to go purchase my new expensive glasses I did a search online on a whim just to see what sort of price I would pay if purchasing from a website and upon perusing a website called eyebuydirect I realized that I could get my glasses at a small fraction of what I would be paying locally at a retail outlet.
I immediately cancelled my order locally and purchased glasses on the website. The way it works is the lenses are completely free, you only pay for the frames, shipping and if you add extra things to the lenses. I placed an order for eye glasses choosing the frames I wanted, lenses containing reflective/UV protection, photochroma (like transition lenses) with shipping and taxes all for $88. Less than a fifth of what I would have paid retail. You'd also have to keep in mind that the $500 eye glasses had nothing special no reflective/UV protection or photochroma embedded.
After the fact I found many online websites that offer extremely low prices on both eye glasses and contacts. When you think about it eye glasses cost very little and it is simply middle men and retailers and optometrists that are making serious money from them. I will probably return to the optometrists for an eye exam every other year now instead of waiting 8 years as I did previously somehow know that even if I were rather low on money I could purchase the glasses I need at a very low price.
If you like me appreciate an incredible deal use this discount code "IFWUVTSLIJ" and check out www.eyebuydirect.com trust me it is much, much better than buying retail and with the economy the way it is everyone needs to save money on bigger expenses.
