I had to visit the eye place while I was in Nebraska because I ran out of contacts. Besides giving me a contact prescription, the doctor also gave me a glasses prescription. At the eye place, I was only able to get contacts OR glasses, not both. I got contacts because I needed them more.
But then I wondered about the possibility of getting glasses online. I had previously read about it on a webpage called Glassy Eyes. I decided to give it a try. I saw something I liked from one of the online stores called Zenni Optical. I did have to go back to the eye place to get a pupillary distance measurement. (You can read about PD at Glassy Eyes.)
The glasses I liked were a little heavier than I’ve worn before, but they had a cool cut-away frame. Plus, they were cheap! Hooray cheap glasses!
They came in the mail the other day. Total cost? $14.90. Awesome!
