Frugal Eyeglasses

Maybe These?

It has now become obvious to me that I must (finally) get a new pair of eyeglasses.  I have, literally, been peering at people trying to see their faces.  As for reading, it's not pretty.

The cost of eyeglasses has delayed my purchase.  Eyeglasses are extremely expensive, especially when you need some special features.  So I have been going to optical shops and doing my research to find the best prices.

For Eyes is reasonable IF you are a member of AARP.  That little membership card cuts the price by 1/2.  But, I thought that I would research Costco, since I already am a member.  Guess what, Consumer Reports Health has rated Costco as a top choice for eyeglasses in the areas of price and customer satisfaction.

Well, that sealed the deal for me.  Next week I'll dig up my prescription and head over to Costco Optical.  In a couple of weeks you should see me with a new look and much less squinting.

God bless,


  1. George's glasses are from Costco and we were very happy with them. We get Eli's at Walmart for less than $40and they are warrantied for a year. That is the best deal in town for kids glasses :)

  2. is also another good option.
