Thanks, Insurance!

I hadn't gone to get my eyes checked for over a year, so yesterday I headed over to Lens Crafters and got my eye exam. My goal was to get any services that were covered by my insurance, but not to pay for any extras. I got out the door for $15, so I'm pretty happy.

I got my regular exam and discovered that my left eye is 20/20. My right eye...not so much. But, my prescription hasn't changed in the past year and half, so I'm fine with the free glasses I got from Coastal Contacts about six months ago. Since I am due for new frames (up to $100 is free), they suggested I get a pair of prescription sunglasses.

I found a pair of Ralph Lauren glasses that I liked and got them done. The tinting cost $15 (includes UV protection). I like the pair I ended up with...though when I tried them on for BF he said (in a perfectly conversational tone), "those look like older lady glasses." Thanks honey. :/


  1. That's awesome - insurance is so helpful!

  2. This reminds me that I need to make use of my yearly exam and glasses benefit since I haven't in 4 years.

  3. The last time I got my eyes checked (I have to go yearly because I have contacts) I paid my $30 copay and got the exam and a box of contacts! Yay!
    If you ever do need glasses though, I HIGHLY recommend Zenni Optical. Super cheap, and great quality! We got some for my husband from them.

  4. This is a good reminder to always use your insurance. I always get my eyes checked annually because I wear contacts but haven't done so yet for 2012.
