When your peepers are myopic Buying specs is catastrophic But without’em you squint So we’ll give you a hint On how to save (‘cause we’re feeling philanthropic).
Signature frames like Tina Fey’s are all the rage these days and many people are trading their contacts to keep up with the four-eyed Joneses. But if you’ve ever failed your optometrist’s eye test, you know just how deep in your pockets you must reach in order to correct your vision. The average frame can cost anywhere from 100 to 400 smackeroos and due to changing styles, people may buy several pairs over the course of their near- or far-sighted lifetime.
Next time you start squinting to see the chalkboard, head online to an eco-friendly eyeglass retailer. Recycled frames and frames made with sustainable or reclaimed materials are not only fashionable, but the most expensive pair we could find was only $62.95 – a price we feel is well worth keeping plastic and wire frames out of our landfills.
