Three years ago, I was sitting on my bed and cleaning my glasses. I got up to put the cleaning cloth away and sat back down- right onto my glasses. Well, since we were short on cash, we decided to go to one of those places that advertise cheap eyeglasses. You know the ones; they have the eye doctor on one end and the showroom on the other. Well, after spending $60.00 for the doctor visit, we went over to the other side to get my new eyeglasses. I picked out the frame: $30.00. Then came the add-ons: anti-scratch coating, UV Protection coating, and anti-reflective coating. I also wanted to get a pair of sunglasses as well, so add another $50.00 to the bill. All told, I paid over $245.00 for my cheap prescription eyeglasses. Not so cheap, huh?
Now, three years later I need to get a new pair of eyeglasses and you can be sure that I will not be returning to that store. With the state of our current economy and with the average price for prescription glasses being $140.00, this time I’ll be heading over to Optical4less. They have eyeglasses starting from only $15.00 and since they have been in business for 23 years, you know they offer quality eye-wear and service. Do you recall all those extras that I had, especially the expensive anti-reflective coating, well they’re free.
If you’re wondering how you will look in your new glasses, not to worry. With their Virtual try-on System, all you do is upload a picture of yourself and you can see what you will look like in a variety of different frames. In addition, if you buy more than one set, for example, I will be adding a pair of sunglasses to my order, you get free world-wide shipping. This was what clinched the deal for me; just have your prescription ready and follow the easy step-by-step instructions and you can have your new glasses in about a week.
