Not so cut and dried

We have just got back from the opticians to get our second pairs of glasses sorted.
The good news is that they could put new lenses in some existing frames, but the bad news was that I would not get my 30% off as that was stipulated for ‘complete’ glasses. Shucks.
Never mind. With my discount and no transitions, I halved the cost with the voucher.
Hubby has ordered his pair too but sadly that was more expensive than we anticipated 😦
However, with a little bit more juggling, I can replenish the pot by the end of February so it’s not all doom and gloom, though we have dental checkups next month so I hope we don’t need any fillings or extractions!
They’ll be ready in 7 to 10 days and I’ll have been paid by then so that’s one pair paid for!
Here we go again with our swings and roundabouts.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    All things considered you’ve done well.

    Glasses and lenses are so expensive! I’m glad that you got some discounts though – it all helps. 🙂

  3. I don’t know why eyeglasses need to be so expensive. Even with an insurance discount, my out-of-pocked cost was around $300. Just one more example of the outrageous cost of maintaining one’s health.

    • I know the cost for mine was due to varifocals and transitions, though Hubby’s were single strength and no transitions and were almost as expensive!
      Still, if it’s only once every three years or so, it’s not too bad. At least we don’t have to pay for our eye tests.
