« on: November 03, 2011, 03:56:37 pm »
it has been almost 2 years for me so i am gonna call a low cost/free clinic around here and make an appointment and see what i can do about getting an eye exam and new glasses for free or next to nothing. i think it's over due.

I don't remember when I last got glasses but it has been over 2 years. I went to the eye dr. last week to get a new prescription so I can get some new ones soon.

I've been wearing glasses for 15 years and last year was the first year I needed glasses for reading and long distance. They do work well though. ;) ;) ;)

It's been about five years since I had new glasses.  I am definitely ready for new ones as soon as I get enough extra money to pay for them.
Have a wonderful day!

Its been a year for me since I got new glasses.  My family and I have been going to Americas Best.  There are several throughout the southern states.  You can get 2 pair of glasses including an eye exam for less than $80.   I am sure that speciality glass lens and frames are extra but its alot cheaper than a traditional eye dr.

I've worn glasses for 25 years.  With our current insurance, I can get new glasses every other year.  I'm due this year and still haven't found a pair that I like.  I have a small face and bridge (nose area) so it's hard to get a trendy pair that fits.  It is a hassle every time, but I'm still on the hunt.  I have 2 months left to find something!

I wore glasses when I was younger in grade school and when I was doing library computer work.
I don't need them anymore.
I was "nearsighted";  I can see at  a distance now.

there is a book out called "Take off You Glasses and See".

It has been a few years.  I know I am due when I can see distances better without my glasses.  I wear trifocals and it is difficult to get ones tht work when I am on the computer.

I just recently got a new pair of glasses -- but it has been at least 10 years since my last pair.

I wear contact lenses most of the time but due to recent cataract surgery that implanted a prescription
in my left eye I needed to get a new pair that has plain glass for my that eye.
