I smashed my eyeglasses today :(

What a huge bummer. Here's how it happened: I was wearing a particle mask in the studio today and at one point as I took the mask off I didn't realize my glasses came off too! I didn't even hear them fall, I simply felt myself step down on something and crush it. Some swearing and profanities followed as I picked up the pieces.

I cannot tell you how much I loved these glass, they were troupers. And expensive...

But I must move on, find new glasses, and I don't want to spend much money. I have contacts and I dug up an old pair of glasses to wear tonight... but new frames are in order!

Here's a picture of the new glasses I just picked out and purchased online:
A friend told me about this online company ZenniOptial, that has the best deals on glasses anywhere - and I've always wanted to try them out, so now I have a reason to. Here's the deal, ZenniOptical.com uses no middlemen, no retail overhead, and no advertising. The glasses range from $8.00 to $25.95 - including lenses! Seems too good to be true - $8 for glasses!!! Wha?! Shipping only cost $4.95.

I've seen my friend's glasses that she has ordered from ZenniOptical over the years and they are great!

These frames I picked out (I bought the black/orange frame) cost $23.95!!! That's my grand total for the frames, lenses and shipping, total, INSANE!! I was able to enter my prescription from the last time I visited the eye doctor and place my order in a matter of minutes online.

I am wowed. And sad all at the same time, I liked my old glasses. Hope I like the new ones, if I do I'm going back to order 3 more pairs. :) You can even get sunglasses tint for a mere $5 more, so I could get prescription sunglasses for $20! That's just crazy-talk :)

I'm all too familiar with the sound of that crunch! I hope the new ones work out for you. I'm too much of a wimp to not try them on (over and over again) before I buy them. Not too many frames look very good on me. You're easier to fit. Sorry about your old glasses...

Poor glasses... hope the new ones get here soon! And if not, I'm a pro at taping glasses back together... ;)

Sorry about your frames. But, seriously, I can't wait to check out that website!! Mason has gone through 3 pairs of glasses this school year alone. Buying expensive frames for a kid that is just going to lose or break them drives me crazy. Thanks for the link.

I gotta tell Yed about this!

Does that mean I can order inexpensive glasses so I can finally wear a light prescription and look "cool" and "smart" finally? So I can wear glasses even though I don't NEED glasses.

do they sell reading glasses?


I want some now!
