Glasses for less than $50, Glassy Eyes: The Daily Deal for December 4, 2007
In this day of internet commerce, shouldn't things be better? Shouldn't we just be able to plug our numbers (whether we've been to the optometrist recently or no) into the computer and get a good deal and see all at once? In my family, with a clumsy mama (me) and a nearly-blind daddy (my husband), it's kind of mandatory.
Glassy Eyes can get you there. The site has deals with a number of major eyeglasses sites where you can find a pair of prescription frames and lenses for between $25 and $100, including shipping. I picked out a great pair of funky glasses for a total of $40.05 from 39dollarglasses.com. Matt Haughey of 43 Folders recently bought several new pairs for the price of one fashionable set of frames from an optometrist, and wrote up a detailed review of his experience.
