Look Out For Summertime Prescription Sunglasses Savings!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Zenni Optical. All opinions are 100% mine.

With summertime basically here, sunglasses are something very important. Not only are they a need for being out in the bright sun, but my husband has been looking for a pair especially for when he drives. I get tired of looking at him squinting when driving and just think of the wrinkles it is causing and how bad it is for his eyesight.

Having affordable glasses these days is important for many reasons, for us parents it means we’re not stuck with expensive frames that our kids can break or lose. It’s also important because in today’s economy we’re constantly looking for ways to stretch our money. Why spend money on expensive glasses when you can get the same stylish frames for a fraction of the price from Zenni Optical. Plus with all that money you save you can put it toward important things, like your actual bills.

Many in both of our families wear prescription eyeglasses, so it may be only in due time that we will both need glasses for our sight. But until that day, we need to start thinking about taking care of our vision now. My husband does use reading glasses at times so he is focused on taking are of his eyes. And if the day comes that we or he will need prescription glasses it will be very important that we know where to get affordable prescription eyeglasses.

I remember when I was a kid and a friend lost her glasses on a field trip. Not only was everyone looking frantically for them because they were very expensive back then, but she couldn’t see and experience the trip. These days parents should think about picking up a spare set of prescription glasses to keep in their kids bag and around just in case their glasses are misplaced or broken or even worse, lost. Not only are they super affordable, but they vary greatly in style and choices for looks.

Zenni Optical offers thousands of choices of prescription eyeglasses. They range from costs, shape, types, frame style, colors, materials, and clear lenses to tinted lenses. They have choices for men, women, and kids. My husband thought these titanium frames are sleek and modern.

And for these bright days and moments transition lenses are a great idea, but can be very costly. So Zenni makes it affordable to tint your lenses for $4.95. And with their glasses being so affordable, you can pick up a few pairs for the price of one for those different conditions such as in the office, on the worksite, or driving in the sun. Zenni Optical offer a variety of tint colors as well as density of the tint, and you can get 80% tinting for $4.95. They also have polarized magnetic clip-ons for even less and the option of photochromic auto-tinting¬Ě lenses which start at $19.

When you purchase from Zenni, they offer free anti-scratch coating, full UV protection, microfiber cleaning cloth, a case and more. And shipping is a flat rate for your entire order. Dont be fooled by free-shipping, it is better to have a lower cost overall, than free shipping.

With everyone loving fashion and the ease to accessorize, affordable glasses make it easy to own a few pairs of glasses to go with any situation or outfit for the day. Just like carrying your favorite purse or shoes, glasses can also be a fashion statement and vary from day to day. Plus having extras make sure you have glasses when you misplace a set.

Buying online is super easy these days. The vast online catalogues with images for all types and styles make it easy to browse thousands of pairs in the convenience of your home or anywhere, and also on your own time. Next time you are in the market for some new frames be sure to shop around and save some money and time!

    Darn, went to site and was down for maintenance? Have to go back tomorrow to check some great frames for readers. I used to work in eyecare and YES glasses are expensive and the base price is bad enough…adding antireflective coating, tints, multifocals, etc is so pricey. I can’t wait to see what they have to offer as I am kind of a eyewear stalker. Just got into readers a few years ago and I look TERRIBLE in mine. So love to find some that work for me! Thanks for showing a new company I never might have heard about!

    That’s a great price for tinting your glasses. My daughter, her hubby and my grandson wear glasses and my grandson has a difficult time with sunlight. We need to check into this place for getting him sunglasses. He needs his regular glasses so a tint would help lots. Thanks!
