I Ordered New Glasses

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

It is an old story. I broke my glasses and went in for an exam only to find I wasn't a candidate for lasik and my progressives were going to cost me. I brought in an antique gold frame only to have it broken by a technician. I found an inexpensive frame for about $350 and should be up and running in two weeks. Life is expensive. Have a good day.

Hi Sheila,

Even with vision insurance, things can get quite pricey. My wife has progressive lenses and still spent $500 for the final costs.

Hello Dave. The reality is I negotiated big time and from what would have been over $600. Thanks.        Sheila

I purchased a pair of glasses that I drive at night with.  It was a few years ago, and I felt they were expensive then.  I think they were about $350. or so.  However, they really cut down on the glare and things look much clearer at night.

Hi Myrl. I am glad your glasses made things better for you at least.      Sheila

I am amazed at the expense of glasses these days. I would have thought the price would go down.

Hi Sheila- I'm sticking with my contacts for as long as I can. I rarely if ever use my glasses so they're soooooo old. Larry got his last pair at Costco. Still glasses are expensive.

Sheila, UGH, isn't it always something?   Last time I got new glasses, it cost me $700, and that was with a less expensive frame.

You know, Sheila Anderson, you're right about life being expensive. If you add up my hours, I'm making just over minimum wage, with 20 years experience...

Morning Sheila.

The technician would have paid for the new ones, it sure would be cheaper in the long run.

Hi Sheila Anderson 
Life IS expensive.  I've been using the same frames for the last 3 pairs of glasses. Thankfully they seem to be holding up and I hope to be able to use them for the next pair, which should be soon.
