My son, My dear son…

has only had his eyeglasses three weeks and the screw for his nose guard had to be replaced and now his eyeglasses are bent.

He never seems to know what happened. Now I am trying to give him the benefit of the doubt since this is his first year wearing eyeglasses and plus he’s only eight years old. But my gosh.

Our insurance pays for each of our children to get one pair of glasses per year. At this age my fourteen year olds glasses never lasted a year.

I don’t hold out the hope that his will last either. What I do is invest in a second pair from Zenni optical. A pair of glasses for his prescription cost me $28.00. That’s right twenty-eight bucks.

If you have any experience with purchasing eyeglasses then you know that this is a steal. Zenni Optical lens start at $8.00 a pair.

You can’t go wrong with Zenni Optical. The only drawback is if you have progressive prescriptions, such as you are almost legally blind, it may be hard to buy from Zenni.

So if you are looking to buy a new pair of glasses or a back up pair, then consider Zenni Optical. I highly recommend them.

    Wow, that is super!!! I’ve never heard of them and always felt doomed by the high cost of glasses. I’ve had mine since elementary school, but only wore them @ home for years and was very careful with them.

    I always have to get two pairs because I also need prescription sunglasses. (My eyes are pretty sensitive to light and I’m prone to optical migraines.)

    My hubby now needs glasses for reading, and the cheapo magnifying ones are not as effective, any more. Since he looses/breaks them, he’ll be needing more than one pair! :-}

    Several of my friends who have younger children with glasses will be glad to hear what you’ve written, too! 🙂

    Thanks, Hadias!!! 🙂

    I have a love/hate relationship with glasses. I love the fact that they enable me to see clearly, but I hate having to wear them. (Since 3rd grade) Getting bent or broken, lenses popping out, etc.

    This is something I heard of a few years ago, but haven’t looked into the price so I don’t know how much it would be, but if covered by insurance, could be worth it. My friends friend took his glasses, bent them, let them go, and they were like new. He said they were memory frames, or something like that. I don’t know all the details, but I hope it helps a little 🙂
