I just spent way too much on a pair of glasses. However, for the past few years I have had to pay out of pocket for all of my eyeball needs. This year I oped in for the healthcare savings account at work, and we have excellent coverage out of the gate, so I splurged. I knew the lenses would be expensive as I have astigmatism, so unless I go for the thinnest (most expensive) lenses. I will look like bubbles.

Sticker shock came when I saw the price on the frames! First time I ever had to haggle on a pair of fucking glasses.

How much (out of pocket) do insured, spectacle laden Oppo’s usually spend on a new pair?
