For the past year and a half I’ve been wearing glasses instead of contacts. My biggest and maybe only complaint was not being able to wear sunglasses. Especially while driving home at dusk. Especially on a sunny Saturday afternoon. Especially while floating around in my parent’s shiny swimming pool.
I knew prescriptions sunglasses were an option but I assumed it was an expensive luxury. Enter Zenni Optical. Their Rx eyeglasses frames with lenses start at just $8, plus $5 more to make them tinted. I ended up choosing some of their most expensive frames at $35 but still a $40 well worth it, I think.
