Re: Xanth's comment.
That was actually before I switched jobs. My new employer only provides a discount card for one provider in our area, which, sadly, is not the eye doctor I've been seeing for the last two years. I stocked up on glasses and contacts before I changed employers, so I should be good for another six or seven months. Then, after that? I guess I'll be stuck wearing glasses for however long it takes my vision to decrease enough that I MUST see an eye doctor.

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Vision care?

/me knows of no such thing - my medical plan only covers the visit to the ophthalmologist, and doesn't even cover the full cost of a refraction [test].

(Actually, just this year they offered a /really lousy/ plan called Spectera. (.com) The dollar value of coverage is lame, and the offers are over a kind of long period of time. Maybe it costs a bit more, but I'd like to go to my trusted optician of many years, and get a pair of glasses that I know will work for me.)

All I've got is a flexible spending plan which I use to reimburse myself for these expenses. Something really seems wrong to me about the state of health insurance w.r.t. glasses - these are things I need to function properly...if prescription medication that costs much more annually is covered for people, why not glasses?

I'm mildly surprised at the number of guys interested in and replying to this thread on make-up. Now why is that?

That would explain why I wear glasses... [Razz]

I used to wait until the Pearle Vision near where I lived had one of those 2 for 1 sales and get the exam and glasses then. (A bunch of the other chain places do them too.) I've never had vision coverage either.

Over the past month my make-up cabinet (yes, cabinet) has grown. I'm rather fond of my lipglosses...the tastes! The sheer lovely shades of pinks and clears and reds, oh my!

That said I do like to wear make-up with my glasses, hide some flaws, fix some circles from staying up late to finish a book. Good stuff.

I love my glasses...I just wish they wouldn't get so smudgy. Does anyone else have this problem?

Oy to the vey.

My eyelashes are so long I sometimes get mascara on my lenses. Other than that, no. Maybe because I don't wear the huge 1970's style that rests mostly on my cheeks...

My glasses smudge many times throughout the day... I just use the microfiber shammy that came with them. I feel more contemplative when I use the shammy to clean my glasses, especially if I'm answering a question at the same time. So sometimes I go out and look for a question to be answered just so I can answer it & then pull out my cloth & clean my glasses while doing so. >.>
