You Really Don’t Get What You Pay For…

August 13, 2011


This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Zenni Optical for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

…well, not with eyeglasses. All four kids got new glasses at the eye doctor’s place and the prices are OUTRAGEOUS. Not only that, but the insurance company would only pay for the “budget” kind, so the available selection was very small. My daughter paid $85 out of her own pocket to have the thin lenses, too, because the insurance company wouldn’t pay for it. Why the heck are prescription glasses so darn tootin’ expensive?! And why are the insurance companies so stingy? You’d think they’d cut the “mental health” or “family planning” coverage a little bit so folks like us could get some quality glasses without having to sell the car or get a second job….

So you really don’t get what you pay for, not with retail prescription lenses. If I got what I paid for, we’d have nice glasses in solid gold, sheesh.

Well, there’s a new option for folks like us– Zenni Optical. They are determined to offer very, very low cost glasses. These aren’t the funky, nerdy “Oh your kid is on the bottom-rung of the insurance ladder” glasses, either. Zenni has stylish frames and they are very nice.

My husband ordered frames from Zenni a few years ago– he’s still wearing them and they’ve performed very well. He now needs bifocals and has to reorder. I tried to order new glasses myself, but my prescription is so strong that the glasses would have cost the same as my insurance deductible glasses. Looking back, I should have ordered from Zenni, anyway– the ones I got from the glasses retailer are falling apart. :-p

Anyway, I keep hearing good things about Zenni Optical. People not only save money on prescription glasses but they get very nice glasses, too. Check them out to see the selection and see how you can order your own pair.
