I’m procrastinating this like crazy, lol. 4 years ago
How I did it: I accidentally missed my contact case when putting my right contact in, it was my last one so I HAD to get my eyes checked. lol. I went yesterday and had the best experience at the eye doctor. The doctor wasn't rude like I've had in the past, he thoroughly explained everything going on with my eyes, and was all around soft spoken and nice. It was a really fast exam, and I just order new glasses from Zenni Optical online today. Super cheap! Hoping they will be just as good quality as anywhere else. Read how I did it… 4 years ago
was today at 11:30, it’s been 3 years sence my last exam. man I hate the glaucoma test. got my eyes Dilated cause I been having pain in my left eye and I told the Doctor about my mom and he thought it was a good idea. Never thought the pupil could get so big, lol. But he saids I’m ok and my eyes havn’t changed that much. Pick up my new glasses soon. Yay! 4 years ago
It has been 3 years since my last eye exam, and the glasses I have now are still in good shape but Im sick to death of them D<! so yes next friday i want to go in for an eye exam,....even though its going to cost A LOT T_T… 6 years ago
And I can see perfectly through them… should take some pics with them on, if I can. One thing about them is they seem rather fragile. I’ll be ordering a backup pair soon. 7 years ago
my glasses won’t be arriving until March.
Friggin’ Chinese new year. They’re being manufactured in China, so I have to wait until they’re done celebrating (They get like 10 days off for this event!).
Well, I guess it’s better to pay $36 and wait 3 weeks than $300 and have them in an hour. 7 years ago
A few days ago…
Frame+Lenses (The frames are quite sexy too)
Only $36 (Incl. shipping)
Not bad, huh? Now if only they’d arrive in good shape and a timely fashion. 7 years ago
I thought about trying in glasses at the store the other day, that’s getting closer. Right? 7 years ago
Didn’t give me my pupillary distance, and that is actually something REQUIRED by Federal Law to be on my prescription.
So anyway, I’m either going to have to measure it myself, or see an optometrist to do it, and if I do, I won’t be paying a dime, since it should be part of my prescription. 7 years ago
The doctor said that it was a rare case that someone with a prescription as strong as mine would see 20/20 with glasses. And my eyes are also “healthy” :) At least he didn’t start calling them “pretty”, which would have creeped me out, a little. 7 years ago
I had the day off and made an appointment. Good thing too as I hadn’t had my vision checked since 2003 and needed a new prescription! I can’t wait to get my new glasses – they are so awesome. I should have them by the end of this week. 7 years ago
Not today, didn’t get the chance to… maybe tomorrow (yeah, right) or next weekend… 7 years ago
Might be the day to do this… if I have time and know when to set up the appointment. 7 years ago
I’ll have to get an eye exam at the local place, but I’m not buying glasses there. TOO EXPENSIVE! I found Zenni Optical online that sells glasses CHEAP. Has anyone tried it? I’ve read some reviews at ePinions and they’re mostly positive, so I’ll probably order a cheap pair to see how it works, and if it does I’ll order a much more stylish pair (with tinting and other extras too, because it’s so cheap) and use the cheap one as backup. 7 years ago
it’ll be wonderful to be able to go to the movies, or a lecture, and actually see something (without having to sit in the first row)! 8 years ago
had my eye-exam today, expensive, but a relief. will get my ‘new’ glasses sometime next week I think. 8 years ago
i made it from my own saving money the eye examination , but finally i decided that the contact lenses better after long way with eye glasses :) 8 years ago
It’s nice to be able to see and not have your glasses slip off your face everytime you look down. 8 years ago
i always break my glasses or loose it , my parentes decided not to bring me another and they think i can manage without any, but i’m suffering , i will save from my own money :( 8 years ago
Finally got an eye exam from the nearest to home on a Saturday appointment.
They did not have a good collection of frames so got that from a place close to work (down the stairs).
I am glad I finally did it but I think I went a little over the top spending $230 out of my pocket on the frame and lenses. But the money would have gone away in my FSA if not spent so all is well. 8 years ago
lol my friends have been teasing me by calling me a nerd, but who cares! i can see the board now! haha, totally worth it. 8 years ago
i do love my new glasses! i was so angry when i went to get my glasses but wouldn’t accept, since my exam was 3 years out of date…so i went back to get an eye exam and purchased new glasses the same day! i now want to get new glasses frames whenever i feel the need for a change, because to me, it is an integral part of how i express myself! (i currently have glasses that look intelligent, but also a bit fun!) :) 8 years ago
im finally getting my eye exam after thinking about it for months. more specifically, since september. ahh i dont want to wear glasses :( 8 years ago
My last ones lasted 4 years! I hope the new pair that I pick up on 10 Aug will hold up as well. 9 years ago
and had presbyopia…old age eyes….got some reading glasses – they’re kinda cute. If I had to wear them full-time, I might get contacts or Lasik, which I know my dh wants to do. This is not as bad as some check-ups (like the mammogram I have to get soon) can be…so it’s done! 9 years ago
