Between eyeglasses and headache

They say that eyeglasses is a sign of old age just like my graying hair. Oh well, what can I say? It could be true because I cannot read without my eyeglasses.

I broke my eyeglasses a couple of months back. That was my only pair of eyeglasses which I brought with me from the Philippines. Hubby bought if for me when he went to the Philippines. He ordered 2 pairs of eyeglasses [1 for him and the other 1 for me]. He paid roughly $100 for the 2 pairs of glasses which included the eye check-up because we ordered prescription eyeglasses [bi-focal lenses for Hubby and reading glasses for me]

Since I broke my eyeglasses I use Hubby’s old glasses which he bought from Walmart years ago out from the rack. I was ok with that but apparently I am having problems with headache lately so I figured it may be caused by the wrong eyeglasses. So Hubby brought me to Walmart to have my eye checked and to get prescription glasses too.

I do need eyeglasses. That is why I had to pay $95 for eye check up alone… $95 for the lenses… and another $95 for the frames. Now you do the math. Now that I have a new pair of eyeglasses, it seems that my headache gets worse not because I got the wrong eyeglasses but because I paid a lot for a new pair of eyeglasses.

Prescription Eyeglasses said...

I found a website that probably has the cheapest sunglasses, glasses and eyeglasses at http://www.SimplyEyeglasses.com. They provide sun glasses, safety eyeglasses, eyewear, eye glasses with prescriptions lens. They have the biggest selection of prescription sunglasses, prescription glasses, prescription eyeglasses, and prescription safety glasses. When I bought my pair of glasses and had a question about them they responded to my email right away. I highly recommend them to anyone. Hope this was helpful.
