    New Glasses!

    Whew, saw an eye doc for real last Friday, and just sat and ordered a new pair of glasses. I know there is an old thread on Pet Talk about Zenni Optical, but I found a couple years ago my prescription is such that I cannot order from them any more. But because of that thread, I learned about Goggles4U.com and just ordered from them - and the frames I happened to chose are free right now! They actually are having a sale so there are lots of choice for free frames, although that wasn't my criteria ... I though I should let the rest of you know about the sale!

    And Goggles4U now has a virtual try-on feature, which is so completely helpful for me! They didn't used to have it but now they do, which is great!

    Thanks for the info, Karen!
    I am actually heading to my eye-doc in the next couple of weeks, so maybe there will still be a sale!

    I've referred others to the zenni optical sight because of that thread. I don't wear corrective eye wear (glasses or contacts), but since I've turned 40, I've been thinking about going to see if I may need reading glasses. Thanks for the new site to check out if I do get a prescription.

    Time helps the sadness subside, but the memories remain forever.

    If you do need reading glasses, then just get the strength from your optometrist and buy OTC ones and save yourself some money. When I had cataract surgery and no longer needed glasses, except for reading, even my ophthalmologist said to go this route, since buying from him (or any optical place) would be a whole lot more expensive!

    There are some very nice OTC readers out there. I think mail-order glasses are a good idea, if you can get the scrip and fit right.

    Absolutely - and with the OTC you can buy several pair without breaking the bank! I don't feel guilty about buying new ones when I get tired of a pair I've had for a while, and I usually have about 4 pair at any one time - in the car, my purse, on my desk, and in the kitchen. Foster Grant has very up to date stylish ones and I recently bought a new pair at Walmart for $12.88 - the exact same pair at Walgreen's was $29 plus change. I've even picked up some discontinued Foster Grants at the dollar store for $5.
