My Husband’s birthday is only a few weeks away, which means he had his yearly physical. While he was given a good bill of health, the doctor did comment on his eyesight. When he came home and informed me that glasses might be in the near future, I couldn’t help but giggle. I miss seeing him in glasses. It was a picture of him wearing thick rimmed glasses that caused me to fall head over heels for him. I’m a sucker for anything nerdy or geek chic.
He’s so obsessed with this “forever young” thing, but everyday we find a new gray hair on his head, or his beard. And don’t even talk about the aches and pains. He sprained his back a few months ago just by getting off the couch. I can’t make this stuff up, people.
I really shouldn’t tease him too much; both of my parents wear glasses, and I’ve been diagnosed with astigmatism since I was in grade school. I tried wearing glasses for a while, but they seemed to make my eyes worse, so I stopped before high school. My military physicals show that my eyesight is fine but declining slowly. Since it looks like we’re both going down the same road, it’s time to think about the finances.
During our conversation, we decided that glasses would end up being a necessity for us, but that contacts would probably be added to our everyday routine. The issue is that these things can be expensive. Luckily, insurance can buffer most of the cost, but it’s always great to have other options. 1800contacts has been a mainstay in my parents house, and will soon be a favorite website for our house as well. They offer your favorite brands at a discounted price and you can have them sent straight to your home! They also offer coupons, which immediately caught my attention. Coupons on items that you need is always a good thing.
So, it looks like we’re on the fast track to visual assistance. At least we now have a game plan and a website to turn to for all of our contact needs. And on those days when we want to give the contacts a break? Hipster glasses for everyone!
