I Need Glasses- Do You?

I have to wear eyeglasses or contacts. My eyes just keep getting worse with age....yes, I say that like I'm 87 years old. But, it's true. My vision is definitely not what it used to be. Someday, I hope to get lasik...though the husband and I disagree on what elective surgery I would have first---ahem, YOU figure out what he thinks would be more fun.

For now, I have to wear prescription glasses. I'm super picky about what mine look like. It takes me forever to decide on frames. I try to pretend like I am going for the sexy librarian look...or at least, that is what I try to convince myself of, anyway. And really, there are so many stylish frames now.

The last time that I needed glasses, it was the day that we were moving from PA to NC.  With all the dust that got stirred up by packing,  I managed to get something in my eyes and couldn't put in my contacts without shrieking in pain. Not what you want when you have a ten hour drive ahead of you. I would have just put on my glasses, but unfortunately, one of my boys had broken mine. So, I was stuck going to one of those same-day glasses places- they knew they had me, since I needed the glasses right then. It's almost a year later and I still cringe, thinking about how much I paid for those glasses.  Though, now, I make sure that they are kept well out of reach of my kids!

An option I didn't have then because I needed the glasses that same day, but one that would save me money in the future is ordering glasses online.  You can look at all the different frames that are available- without feeling rushed. Then, enter your prescription and they will be shipped to you.  It's a great way to get a deal on your glasses!

In addition to their everyday discounts, GlassesUSA is offering my readers 10% off your next purchase with them. Use the code mommy10 when prompted during your next purchase of prescription glasses.  You can visit their site by clicking on any of the links in this post or find out more information by visiting their facebook fan page at: http://www.facebook.com/glassesusa

I wrote this post on behalf of GlassesUSA and was paid a small fee to share this information with you.

How weird! And yeah, my eyes aren't what they used to be either. I am on the edge of bifocals. I only need mine for reading, but my distance/depth is starting to go bad. *sigh* I went to one those same day places for the same reason. yeah $400! OUCH!

I've started ordering my glasses online. Much cheaper and I've never been disappointed.

I haven't had my prescription updated in about 10 years... that's something I'm hoping to get done before this year is over.

I've heard lots of good things about GlassesUSA. I however, have a sister who is an optician and always takes care of me when it comes to contacts or glasses.

But if she ever stops in the future - I'll check them out again.

I need new glasses so bad. I have an astigmatism in both eyes which always makes my contacts/glasses really expensive. Last time I went to see the eye doctor he laughed at how bad my eye was. Thanks for bringing this site to my eye needs attention, hopefully I can get a good deal. :)

Wow, thanks for posting this! I have the WORST prescription EVER (seriously. It's -15 in one eye and -18 in the other! CRAZY!!!) but I'll have to see if they carry my RX because I'd much rather order my glasses online where they tend to be cheaper.

Thanks for passing this along to your readers :)

I have my appointment next week! I'm hoping to get a couple of pairs so that I don't have to go through the stress and trauma of losing my glasses in the Bermuda Triangle (James, John and Jeremy)!

I wore glasses from the time I was 2 until I was 29 and got LASIK. I don't even want to know what the total cost of glasses was over the course of 27 years!

Visiting from The Lady Bloggers Society and absolutely LOVE the honesty and forthrightness in your blog -- so refreshing! I have been considering LASIK, too, but am a little wary since it hasn't been long enough...not having the luxury of knowing what it would do to my eyes 30-40 years from now scared me a bit. I think glasses are fine for now, especially since they're not invasive...
