Reader Question

A reader asked the following question:

"I always have unexpected expenses. Does anyone know the best deal on glasses and an eye exam for a child? Thanks and have a nice week" 

Can anyone offer any advice? 


  1. See if you have America's Best in your area. Last I heard they were offering a free eye exam and two pairs of glasses for $69! I am going to look into this in a few weeks for my husband and I. They also have a contact package but I'm not sure of the price of that.

  2. Hands down Zenni Optical!!!! Complete glasses for under $7 and a flat rate shipping $4.95
    Get your exam at a local place and have them write it out for you. Then come home and order your glasses through Zenni :) I've been doing this for years and absolutely love the glasses I've gotten.

  3. I took my son to get his eyes checked via a mystery shop, so they paid me to do it. Gotta love that! I bought him a pair of glasses at Costco, which was cheaper than the optician and local for adjustments.
