Is Your Eyesite Failing? Need Eyeglasses or Contacts?

It seems, every year I go to my routine eye appointment and wait for the doctor to tell me that it’s time. The time that I finally hit that age where I need glasses. I’ve been lucky so far. My doctor says that I’m still on the border line but I should be good for another couple years. Whew!!

Not so lucky for my husband though. He’s had glasses for reading for awhile now. He’s a programmer and the strain of working on the computer  gets to his eyes. He hasn’t needed a very strong prescription but at his last appointment, he had to get a stronger prescription.

So on to picking out a new pair of glasses. With our insurance, he was shown the “cheap glasses” that the insurance will pay for. Not that great of a selection. I asked about picking out a different pair of frames and paying for them ourselves but then our insurance wouldn’t cover it at all.

When you need something, like eyeglasses or contacts and insurance doesn’t cover it or shows you the “cheap section,” it’s nice that there’s other alternatives.

I checked into 1800 Contacts just to compare prices. They have a great selection and have a price match guarantee. Plus they offer free shipping on orders over $50. The savings you get all really add up. Especially when you’re paying for it out of pocket!

My youngest son also needs corrective lenses. He’s only 7 so for now we picked out a pair of the “cheap glasses” and he’s fine with him. I also know how 7 year old boys can be and I didn’t want to pay a lot for glasses that could be dropped, stomped on or lost. When he’s older though, I’d imagine that he’s going to want contacts. It’ll be nice to be able to comparison shop and get the best deal on them.
