It can be tempting to buy the frames at the optometrist’s office, but oftentimes you will pay a great deal more, sometimes twice as much. Where you can find a better deal?
- Check with your local club membership store like Costco or Sam’s Club Walmart
- Ebay. A recent search had over 3000 pairs of new glasses, including Gucci for $82 (retails for over $300). Try on similar pairs at the store first.
- 4Readers.com sells 3 pairs of reading magnifiers for under $10.
- Want the animal in you to come out? For just over $10 you can get animal print readers at peepers.com
And if you are getting new frames, don’t forget to donate your old frames/glasses to the Lion’s Club.
