Save Money on Glasses for Computer Use Go to ZenniOptical http://ksmusselman.com Do You Need Glasses for Computer Use? A lot of people who are at their computers all day may need eye glasses for computer use. But when you're self-employed, you may not have vision insurance or the cash to get the type of computer eyewear you need. That's where Zenni Optical fits the bill! I have to wear progressive bifocals with three prescription levels: the top is for distance, like when I'm driving; the middle level is for computer use or regular vision; the lower part is for close-up work. I also have "odd" vision. When I went for my last eye exam, I was told my left eye is far-sighted but my right eye is near-sighted. That's why my old glasses weren't working right anymore. Both eyes used to be far-sighted! To get new glasses locally offline, just for the lenses it was going to cost about $195. I still had to get new frames, which could have added another $75 or so to the bill. So I decided to check Zenni Optical for a price comparison and I got a whole new pair of progressive bifocal lenses with brand new stylish frames – for less than $50! And I love them! Zenni Optical also offers free anti-scratch coating, which is something that most local places charge extra for. NOTE: When you're buying your glasses online, it's important to get a new eye exam for the correct prescription – and be sure they measure your "DP," which is the distance between your eyes at the center. Tip for people who like transition eyeglasses but can't afford them: Buy a pair of regular sunglasses that fit over your prescription glasses. Transition lenses don't transition to sunglasses behind a windshield, so they don't do you any good for driving anyway. So instead of spending more money getting prescription sunglasses, just buy a pair of "overglasses" and you can use your regular glasses for driving. I picked mine up at a cheap store for under $5, a major savings over the $150 or so it would have cost to have a second pair of glasses made for driving. And don't let the people at the optical center discourage you from buying your glasses online. Obviously they want your business so they'll give you all the negative reasons for not buying them online. But if you get a new eye exam, make sure to get your DP measurement, and use Zenni Optical's program to virtually try on the glasses first, you'll love the results – and the savings!
