I hear ya, I haven’t been in forever either. I need to go though! When I had my license changed to my new name I had a hard time on the vision test. Luckily the lady I was dealing with was really nice and let me slide. Glasses are in my near future.

Hope all works out at your appt!

If you do end up needing glasses, I wouldn’t buy directly from the eye doctor.  Just have the eye doctor give you the prescription, and then you can purchase your glasses online.  Many time coastal.com offers free glasses and you only end up paying a free dollars in shipping.

Good luck!  I hope nothing is wrong with your eyes!

Go to an eye glass store, they won’t dialate you or test for eye diseses and such, but they will test your vision. Cost is maybe around $25 and may be deducted from the price of glasses if you end up getting them. Or you can get your script and order them dicounted online.

Yep, I get mine checked every year (I wear contacts) and haven’t had insurance in yearssssss. Paying out of pocket is awesome (said no one ever), although they typically give me cash and no-insurance discounts. I buy my glasses and contacts from coastal.com, and they’re always great. You can get lots of coupon codes for them, and a free pair (you pay for shipping and insurance, which is usually like $15, and then any upgrades you want, like thinner lenses)–but only once. Because of my prescription, my glasses normally run about $80 if I can get them on sale from there (sometimes they run sales on free frames, which includes normal lenses).

My other choice is zennioptical.com–super cheap, nice glasses, large selection. No name brands or anything, but I can get a cute pair of glasses with super thin lenses for about $50.
