In the Time of Minimum Wage

I got my eyes checked yesterday and then ended up spending more than $200 on a pair of prescription sunglasses.

You know what I learned?

I learned that getting polarized lenses costs an extra $85. That's $10 more than my vision plan covers to get new glasses.

Of course, I did get the polarization. The girl helping me didn't even have to go into her spiel about how its better for the eyes and blocks out stuff and such. I knew all that before.

Here's to hoping my prescription doesn't change much in the next five or so years.

I've had pretty good luck here, but my prescription is really simple. They didn't get John's quite right the one time we tried for him, but I have gotten several pairs.

Two problems with that:
1. I already paid for my new glasses.
2. The page has been WebSensed. Dammit!
