I've searched the web over for deals on eyeglasses and contacts...but this is one of those things that change almost monthly, so please feel free to add new sites.
My daughter and husband wear glasses; my daughter also wears contacts. There was a time when I wore both, but 8 years ago I had lasik eye surgery, and it was some of the best money I've ever spent. I will have to wear glasses for reading someday (probably sooner than I'd like), but going from 20/200 to 20/15 overnight was an amazing thing...let me know if you have questions.
So, with a daughter wearing toric lenses and the office price at right around$47.00 a box, I started the search. www.shipmycontacts.com has the best prices I've found, approximately $25 a box and free shipping.
Eyeglasses are getting cheaper every day. There are several sites that sell complete packages (frames and lenses,even bifocals) for $8.99, even with shipping they are less than $13.00 a pair. So check out the selections at the followiing: www.zennioptical.com, www.selectspecs.com, and www.globaleyeglasses.com.
