I need glasses to see, many people do and until recently it was very expensive to get good glasses. Now there are numerous places to buy eyeglasses like Zenni Optical and really they have a great service. It’s inexpensive and since many people don’t have extra money to spend on this necessity it’s good to have this type of business.
The problem is the optometrist. You know those people charging you $300-$1000 for eyeglasses. Really, they think that we are going to help them buy there Bentley now a days. Really I am so not paying more then I have to for glasses anymore. I’m tired of doctors and their “fees”. I recently as looking at a site where these people had the nerve to say that if I went online for my glasses I was not a customer, and I should be ashamed for buying my eyeglasses online. Well here is a thought, why don’t these optometrist push for universal health care so we can all afford their glasses, oh wait they won’t do that, that would also mean there prices would be regulated, no more Bentley for them.
I think I’ll just stick to getting my exams at my local walmart, as they have been very helpful in giving me my information and order my glasses online. I usually buy my contacts with them so at least they have the exam fee and money from the contacts. These other optometrist need to get a life and a new business model. Though many of them do seem so against it.
