I have to go to the eye doctor this week. I'm sort of dreading it. See, I can sit in a dentist chair all day long- does not bother me at all! But I hate, hate, hate just how expensive a visit to the eye doctor can be!
I have pretty bad vision. Since I've shared my other dirty little secrets with you, I might as well share this: my eye prescription is -5.75. Ekk! You can call me Mrs. Magoo, I'll understand.
Last year the unthinkable happened- my vision improved! Did you even know that could happen? I didn't! Unfortunately, the year before I bought a new pair of glasses and was planning for that to be an off year & only buy contacts. Surprise, Surprise- $130 unexpected expense! Mrs. 2010's Housewife is NOT a fan of unexpected expenses! (Did I just refer to myself in third person?)
I wish I had known about Zenni Optical last year! Word on the street is (and by "on the street" I mean Time Magazine - I'd say that was a good street to be on) a pair of eyeglasses from Zenni Optical can cost just $20 shipped!
I was pretty determined to not buy myself a new pair of glasses this year, but after taking a look around on Zenni Optical's site, I just might change my mind! Seriously, check out how super cute this pair is: Zenni Optical - Eyeglasses, Prescription Glasses, Bifocal, Progressive Eyeglasses, Rimless Glasses.
Did you see that? $12.95! Yep, that's how I roll! Finally, a company that prices products how I want them too!
Zenni also has a cool blog where you can see photos of real people in their Zenni glasses & read real testimonies. (In case you don't want to take my word for it. No, it's okay. I see how you are!)
I will want to warn you in advance- check out Zenni Optical when you've got some free time. They have a feature where you can upload a photo of yourself and "try on" whatever glasses you want. It's very fun & very addictive! I've seen something like this with hair styles but Zenni's actually works.
So, anywho. I'll be sure to report back if/when I order a pair for myself and please stop by & let me know if you do too!
