In Sunday's Dollars & Sense I mentioned a tip from Deal-spotter Kiera at Eye 35 Eyecare in Lakeville. Get free eyeglass frames and and lenses for ages 12 and under with the purchase of a $95 eye exam. Andrea sent in another tip that's almost as thrifty. At Allina Medical Clinic optical sites (12 locations in the Twin Cities) students get a complete eyewear package for $145 or $155. The lenses are polycarbonate for safety and come with a two year warranty on frames and lenses. More than 60 frames are included in the package.
No longer in school and feeling like I left you out of the bargains? Check out my column in the link above for ordering online. Several readers left posts about their positive experiences buying glasses online. The savings are huge. It's easy to find a complete pair for less than $60, but your RX should be simple. Buying online is not recommended for anyone with moderate to severe corrections, astigmatism or bifocals.
