Cheap Eye Glasses

I started wearing glasses when I was 13 due to Myopic Astigmatism and that was 18 years ago. Myopic Astigmatism is one or both eyes are nearsighted and what I experienced was I always get dizzy and having difficulty seeing at night. Last 2009 I went to EO and have my eye checked and get a new frame and lens. Frame was worth 2,000 plus 5,000 for multi coated, UV protection and transition photochromic lens, the total was P7, 000, expensive right?! I am very careful with my eyeglasses and make sure I won’t scratch it. Unfortunate event happen, I was held up last 2011 and they took all my things. I need to have a new eyeglass. Went back to EO and told them I just want to have a simple frame and lens for my astigmatism, no multi coated and photochromic, I only want protection from UV and computer.  Frame was worth 2,500 and the lens with UV and radiation protection was worth 2,000 total of P4, 500.


(My eyeglass from EO worth P7,000, paumanhin sa taray look kase stolen shot hahaha)

This year my shift starts at 3:00 PM and thought of having transition photochromic lens. This time I went to Sarrabia and told them what I need. Lens for astigmatism was worth 800 no multi-coating, no photochromic and protection from UV and computer. Then went to a Korean optical shop (I forgot the name), they have a very cheap frame worth 500 but simple lens was expensive worth 1,200. Last Friday I went to Paterno in Quiapo and look for Reshma Optical shop. I told Reshma (the owner) I have astigmatism and I need protection for UV, computer and sun. Lens with multi coated, UV and computer protection is worth 500. If I want it the transition photochromic, need to add 500. They also offered the new type of photochromic lens; it's much darker like a sun glasses once expose to sun and for that I need to add 1,000. I don’t need a new frame because it’s still in good shape, so I just paid 1,000. My new lens for astigmatism has multi-coated with UV and computer protection and transition photochromic. That is very cheap right, compared to a simple lens from Sarrabia and Korean optical shop.

  7. actually, yung frames sa ibang shops are 300 and up :) kaso plastic frames lang yung worth 300. nag ooffer sila ng mga ray-bans (i dunno if it's original or class A only) for 1200 pesos, very good yung klase, yung weight niya is similar with original ray-bans, and it comes with a ray-ban wooden container. meron din silang inooffer na mga titanium frames and such para sa mga mas may kaya, yung sa sister ko, titanium frame (heavy duty pero light weight) worth 3800 pesos :)
