If you are hunting for new specs, you may wanna give the online route a go! I know I will the next time around. Check out eyeglasses. With these prices, you could even get a couple of pairs :) - something simple or something bold or that little something in between :).
Both J & I wear glasses, so there's a good chance our kids will too :P. These are cute - and so are these - and these!!
They walk you through the whole process of ordering - you just have to have your prescription handy. One site I checked out mentioned the importance of also obtaining your pupillary distance (precise measurement between the centre of your pupils). Most opticians will include this information only upon request. If you ARE planning to purchase glasses online, you may wanna read through the general information even before obtaining your prescription so that you know which specific questions to ask!!
If you've purchased glasses online, let me know how it goes! These glasses may seem to last forever, but eventually they will wear out and I would like to give the online option a try!!
