My New Eyeglasses

I have needed new glasses for a very long time.  The glasses that I am wearing now are old, I got them in February 2006 so I have been due for a new pair for quite some time.  My main issue with my glasses is that they are scratched up beyond repair and I just can’t stand looking through them anymore.

Glasses are very expensive and Medi-Cal doesn’t cover glasses anymore.  I wanted to buy them at a place that I can try the glasses on, but they are too expensive.  Sears has a sale that is 2 pair for $99.99 which include bifocals, but nothing else and I wear prisms.  It was a good thing that I got an email today warning me that the sale that Eye Buy Direct has for buy one get one free is ending today.

I have wanted to buy glasses online, but nobody had prisms, but now they do thank goodness so I bought a pair.  The only thing about buying glasses online is that you can’t try them on to make sure they are a good fit, but thanks to webcams and uploading your picture, you can try them on.  Check it out, this is the pair of glasses I bought from them for $29.95 +$19 for the bifocals and +$19 for the prisms.

See, you can try them on.  They don’t look too bad I don’t think.  The price after the prisms and bifocals was $67.95 plus shipping it came to $72.90.  I didn’t get the free pair because that only covers the glasses, it doesn’t cover the prisms and bifocals so I had to just buy 1 pair.  I have been waiting to buy new glasses because I couldn’t afford them, but I withdrew the money I had in my SocialSpark account from getting paid to blog so I could buy them.

They have a code that I can give out for people to save 15% on their order which is IFAEUKIITB.  If you use that code, then I will get $5 in loyalty dollars which I can use to buy a pair of sports sunglasses with my prescription so I can ride my bike again with sunglasses on.

I don’t know how long it will take for my new glasses to come, but I look forward to a new pair.  I can’t even tell you how sick and tired I am of the glasses I am wearing now.  The metal irritates my skin and the deep pits and scratches are really annoying to look at 16 hours a day lol.

YAY NEW GLASSES WOOHOO!!!  I hope they don’t take too long hehe.

Oh and in case you are wondering, no I did not get paid to write this post, it would’ve been cool if I did though cause maybe I would’ve gotten a discount, yeah right lol.

Update: 1:10am – I got this email: “We are pleased to advise that work on your new pair of prescription eyeglasses has begun! Our team is now allocating the selected frame(s) and lenses according to your particular needs. We expect work to last a couple of days and we will be sending you your new eyeglasses soon!”  YAY!
