$8 RX Glasses

While I absolutely hate to admit it, part of me believes that I’m beginning to lose my eyesight. When you look at a screen all day long and rarely focus on anything else, things just don’t work as well as they used to. I still have better eyesight than anyone I know, probably because I come from a family where almost everyone needs glasses in order to see, and my sister is one of them but she’ll NEVER admit to it until she’s completely blind and attempting to drive somewhere. My father on the other hand, he’s needed glasses on and off for quite some time to read and now he really can’t do much of anything without his glasses. Up until he was about 30 years-old he never needed them, he had better than 20/20 vision, now things are so blurred for him that he’s more than likely going to be blind at some point later on down the road.

Another person with really bad eye sight is Sean and unfortunately he doesn’t have medical insurance to even get his glasses fixed, let alone update the prescription in general. I do believe that with my search I landed upon what I believe to be a great discovery. They’re called Zenni Optical and they sell prescription glasses online. There’s a huge selection of frames with everything from single vision lenses to bifocals. They even have tinted sunglasses for those who need corrective sunglasses as well. I guess no one likes the “clip on” look anymore…heh. They sell internationally too, so no matter where you’re located you can still get the prescription you need.

The link that really caught my attention (the reason I found this company) $ 8 Zenni Optical Rx Eyeglasses when you see a link like that you’re initial thought is “Okay, scam time” but they really aren’t. If you read through reviews on their website you’ll find that 99% of the time, consumers whom have gone through their services have a 100% recommendation to friends and family members when it comes to going back to this company – time and time again.

It’s too bad that I can’t order anything for Sean yet, he hasn’t had an eye-exam in a few years and he’s due for another one before he can even consider picking up a new pair of glasses. Hell, maybe if insurance works out properly we’ll be able to pick up some contacts for him instead. Either way something needs to be done, right?
