When is a glass not a glass?

2 years have strolled by since I last did it so today I arranged to do it again.  No, I’m not talking about when I last blogged, I’m talking about when I last had my eye sight tested!

It’s amazing how much opticians fleece for eye tests and frames and lenses.  Thankfully my employer pays for the eye test and issues us with a voucher for a ‘basic’ pair of VDU frames and lenses.  When I last bought a pair I ended up spending over £600 on a ‘buy a pair get a 2nd pair  half price’ deal(?!)  I won’t be making that mistake again, oh no sir, not me!  I’ve discovered an online site that has frames from just £15 including lenses, of course like the high street bandits you pay a little extra of scratch resistant coatings, anti-reflective coatings and every other type of coating you can think of but still, I’ve seen a nice pair of frames for £75 and even with some fancy shmancy coatings I could get 2 pairs for under £250 but since I’ll have work shell out for a pair I’ll only have to buy one set for home.
