Save Big Bucks on Quality Eyeglasses

If you are anything like me you have been trying to save money and pinch pennies whereever possible. One necessity that can be a BIG expense for a family is eyeglasses. There are some things you can do without to save money, but eyeglasses are not one of them.

The only thing you can do is to try and find the best deal you can get on the things that you absolutely have to buy right? I just read an article on a company called Zenni Optical called Cheap eyeglasses are a reality, by Eric Hammer. It talks about how Zenni Optical has glasses that start at only 8.00,,,yes 8.00! I had to read that part of the article twice because I could not believe my eyes.

Evidently Zenni Optical manufactures the glasses in China at top notch factories, so the quality is there, but the price is lower. The prices range from 8.00 to 40.00 for basic lenses, and they only charge 4.95 for extras like bifocal lenses that would cost much more at other optical outlets. They also only charge 4.95 shipping no matter what the size of your order, so you can order for the whole family at once and save on shipping too!

Mr. Hammer pointed out in the article that the only hard part of ordering eyeglasses from Zenni Optical is that you have to find out your PD number. That is the distance between the back part of your eyes. While Zenni offers directions for doing this yourself, the articles says you can just ask your eye doctor to give you this measurement when you get your eyes checked.

So if you are looking for a inexpensive, but good pair of eyeglasses, you should check out the Zenni Optical site, you just might "see" a big savings!

DR. OZ Rocks!

Have you heard of DR. OZ? If you watch television at all you probably have. I guess he started on the Oprah show, but I never really watch Oprah. I first became aware of Dr. Mehmet C. Oz because of his collaboration on the book "YOU, The Owner's Manual". I had seen his co-author and friend Dr Michael Roizen on a PBS special and was hooked!

I have yet to implement all the good advice in the "YOU" books, but I love the book series. There is a ton of good advice in them, and even if you only change one or two things that they talk about, you can make a big difference in your health.

Now Dr. Oz has his own show,,,The Dr. Oz Show ,,appropriately named eh? lol

I like the way that Dr. Oz and Dr. Roizen present things. They do not beat you over the head with them, they just tell it like it is and let you know how your health would be better if you listen.

You can also go to, which is the website for both doctors. And for facebook users, you can become a FB fan of DR. Oz....I am definitely a fan!
