Than going to my local optometrist? I have my DD12 scheduled for an eye exam with my eye doctor because she's having trouble reading anything up close (she says everything is blurry) but I'm wondering if it would be cheaper to go to one of the chain stores, especially if she ends up needing glasses. The last time I went to my eye doctor in Dec 04 the exam was $100 and the glasses were $190 (included tinting). I know the chains sometimes offer buy 1 pair get 1 free or similar offers so maybe I should just keep the appt she has with my eye doctor and get the glasses elsewhere? (I don't know if they would take offense to that but people must do it all the time). I also found that I can get a 30% discount on glasses with my AAA card at Lenscrafters.
