Have you ever thought about keeping an extra pair of prescription glasses or sunglasses in your car? The idea of spending that amount of money on extra glasses sounds crazy at first. I know because I wear specs myself and it can be a daunting and expensive task buying new ones.
However, what most people don’t realize is that you can order prescription glasses and prescription sunglasses online for under $100 dollars these days. Think that sounds too inexpensive? It’s not. The mark-up at your local optician is ridiculous for frames and lenses. Often the lens only cost a few dollars per pair and the frames are made cheaply with a markup of several thousand percent. The online glasses websites sell frames and lenses that are made of the same material and are often made in the same factories and labs at stores you can find locally.
Armed with this knowledge recommending you keep an extra pair of prescription glasses and sunglasses in your car sounds more reasonable. There are many online options now like Warby Parker which is popular among hipsters. SelectSpecs is another good options with “The World’s Cheapest Glasses.” Read this SelectSpecs Review and you will see you can order glasses through them shipped for $20-$30 dollars.
When you break your glasses… that is an immensely terrible feeling isn’t it? You spent a lot of money on them, if you bought them at a local optical shop, and replacing them is a hassle. If you require glasses for driving you don’t want to put yourself or other drivers in a dangerous situation by not having “your eyes” on. Keeping an extra pair for glasses makes more sense now, right?
