I need a new pair of glasses. I have my prescription, but am daunted by the next step.
The Guru talked me into checking out an upscale glasses place late last week, where I discovered the inexpensive rack advertised frames for $139.
I did find a lovely frame on a rack hidden in the back, and asked the price. Roughly $325. Well.
Since I was at it, I asked about lenses. Lenses are more than glass. There’s the scratch-resistant surface treatment; that can be pricey. Or less so. There’s the transition lenses I need. That’s just an additional hundred. Just.
So, final price for these glasses on my face? Something like $700.
Not this shopper.
Guess I’ll be headed to one of those discount places advertising two pair for $69—with an eye exam!
