Hubby and I have been thinking (no jokes about it being unusual please LOL) and realised that neither of us have a spare pair of glasses, so if we lose or damage them, we are technically ‘stuffed’.
Hubby is lucky and can get away with a cheapie pair of readers from the discount store for a few pounds, but for distance and driving, he needs a pair on prescription.
My new specs are great. My old ones are scratched to hell and beyond, so it was no surprise I couldn’t see straight. The darts game is still far from perfect and Hubby is hammering me, but I’m getting there.
What’s triggered the thought processes is a voucher for 30% off a second pair.
However, 30% off a lot still leaves a lot, and we don’t have a lot of cash to spare.
I can tweak quite a bit off mine though by not having the transitions so might get away with a second pair for around £100. That’s doable over the next couple of months and my voucher is valid for three.
Hubby however would have to be fitted for a pair with his new prescription and choose some frames to suit. That could be around £60, the cost of his last pair, because his lenses are single strength not varifocal like mine, and he doesn’t have transitions as he has a pair of those clip on sunglasses.
So tomorrow, after his INR blood test, it looks like we’re off for a field trip to get sorted.
