I looked everywhere for eyeglasses cheaper than our vision insurance limit, with little luck. You can buy $39 glasses online, but I wear mine a lot. I wasn't willing to buy them blind.
Waiting at the Thriftsmart checkout, I noticed a perfect pair of Perry Ellis frames. Hmmm. The flex hinges, the ultra-light alloy...all better than I had seen so far. I bought them for $1 and ordered lenses from a preferred-provider optometrist. No out-of-pocket expense!
It's been a tight money month, what with the car repairs, lost shoes, and broken glasses. Finding frames that fit my face (and my budget) is a true blessing.
