Thread: Why don't they sell near-sighted glasses in the store

    Why don't they sell near-sighted glasses in the store

    I've been +1.5 for the last 14 years, but I have to go to the optometrist every year. Yet far sighted people can go to the store and buy them off the shelf. WTF?

    They probably have them, but you're too far away to see them.

    you can buy glasses online - but you need to know a few more things first. First, you probably have some astigmatism too, so that has to be accounted for, and that has to be mounted at your own specific angle - so its somewhat custom. Also, its important to get the center aligned correctly so you need to know your interpupillary distance.

    Even with all that, you can get cheap uncoated plastic lenses for $15-20 in a standard $10 frame, and you can get the most complicated progressive bifocal/coated/resistant lenses for $200 + frame which costs abound $50 for nice ones, $150 for very nice ones. Optical shop charges $400 for the same lenses and another $150-200 for the frame.

    But they do offer that excellent customer service and a somewhat trained young teenager with cleavage that bends over to get the frames you want to look at - so you have that going for you.
