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.

I found a website that probably has the cheapest sunglasses, glasses and eyeglasses at 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.
