So, how do you like my new glasses?

I tthought they cost way too much, but after a I asked around, I found that I got a very reasonable price. I need progressive transitional lenses, which adds a lot to the price.

They look great on you.

My glasses have the invisible bioficals with a dark tint which also serve as sun glasses due to my sensitivity to light. My frames are made of a light weight titanium.

The cost for the glasses, not including the eye exam was $500.00

I like em'. I have progressive, transitions too, Yup. Not cheap.
It reminds me of my first pair when I was 30.(20+ yrs ago) I thought I'd be the only one in the family that would escape them. NOT!
But if you remember Sally Jessie Rapheal, with her red rimmed specs. Those were my first pair. I thought they looked great til someone said I looked like an old lady! Maybe I should look for them now. LOL!

Me too. This last time I got the kind with magnetic clip on sunglasses so I wouldn't have to buy prescription sunglasses...still cost an extra $60.

Don't I wish, Jeekinz!

I paid $500, including the exam, which seemed awfully high to me, but these are the first I've bought without insurance in many years, and I guess I just didn't realize how things have gone up. They fit perfectly and I can see great, though...and I really like them.

They look great! When I had conventional lenses, mine always cost so much more than the advertised price because my prescription was so complicated. I can't even imagine what a pair would cost me now.

I don't have them because my vision can't be adequately corrected with conventional lenses anyway. I do just as well with nothing!
