My friend and I were both due for an eye exam and new glasses, so today we headed over to the optometrist at the Walmart to have our vision checked. I was very impressed by the office and also the cost ($69 for the basic exam + $10 for the peripheral vision test + $25 for the dilation test), much cheaper than I’d been quoted anywhere in Canada (but I never thought to ask at a Walmart).
I’ve been needing new glasses for ages, but haven’t been due for an exam, so I put off getting replacements as long as I could. Now, I can go ahead and order several pairs at Zenni Optical with my new prescription. I’ve never ordered from them, but several people, including my friend, have, so I feel very comfortable going that route.
My eye health is good and I need an ever so slightly stronger prescription than I’ve been wearing. The doc said that if I wasn’t due for glasses, I could even skip this prescription. So that was good news today!
As for the title of my post, my eyes are still painfully dilated and my vision is ever so blurry. I’m glad I didn’t have to drive home!
Before my appointment, my friend took me to lunch at Panera Bread. WOW! How come I have never been to this chain before?! From now on, if I need wifi and/or an electrical plug in, I will look for a Panera Bread before a McDonalds or Starbucks. The food is tasty, good for you, and inexpensive. I was very impressed!Share on Facebook
