About two years ago, I decided to get new frames in my glasses. Typically, I wear contacts, so I can’t say that it really mattered, but I thought that if I had some nice frames, I might wear them outside more often.
Well, I went to a well-known chain near my house and picked out the frames that I figured my wife would like (I have to make sure she likes them right? I’ve got to look good for her!). When the order came in, I wasn’t too happy with the results. The lenses, which are supposed to look practically invisable, still had shavings coming off from them, and the lenses were thicker than a soda bottle!
This whole adventure cost me about $250 (plus $150 because of the contacts I ordered at the same time), and I still don’t wear my glasses outside…
Well, if you’ve ever had a negative experience like the one above, then I would recommend that you do what I’m going to do from now on – find a cheap eye glass store online. Here are a couple of sites that I recently saw on the news:
This looks like a pretty awesome site! The frames, with lenses, can cost as little as $6!!!! It really is unbelievable, but it’s true! And, if you’re not satisfied, then you’re only out $6 rather than $250. Sounds good to me!
This looks to be a little pricier than Zenni Optical, but you’ll still get away much cheaper than $250!
Do you get your eye glasses online? Where do you get them? How much of a deal is it?
My name is Derek, and I have my Bachelors Degree in Finance from Grand Valley State University. After graduation, I was not able to find a job that fully utilized my degree, but I still had a passion for Finance! So, I decided to focus my passion in the stock market. I studied Cash Flows, Balance Sheets, and Income Statements, put some money into the market and saw a good return on my investment. As satisfying as this was, I still felt that something was missing. I have a passion for Finance, but I also have a passion for people. If you have a willingness to learn, I will continue to teach.
