Yes - every year. Specsavers have a great range of frames and my private insurance covers the whole cost which is fantastic! I prefer plastic frames as metal tends to irritate me. My preferred colours are red and lime green.
I would like to get more now, as I wear glasses during the day.
They can really be part of accessories, but some are way too expensive.I have no idea how they
justify $300 for a pair of frames that look quite ordinary.
Some of my friends get a copy of their prescription for their glasses, and buy from overseas....they see what they like on the internet and order.
Paying only a fraction of the cost, with heaps of new colours and designs.
Never hear a bad word spoken about them! so something is working well I would say.
I am going to do it and just see the difference.
I now have a pair of dark red.....and tomorrow a pair of purple....and in a month I want a pair the colour in my pic hot pink.
Then a pair of dark blue.....and then after that a pair of glass-coloured. :) Sooo much fun, and great comments from friends...But I got them here, as I found a great cheaper place.
I don't change my frames that often, as it is so expensive and generally once I've found a pair I like, I wear them until they fall apart! So usually I change them only when they are beyond repair or my prescription has changed.
I don't prefer a particular colour, my choice is limited by being allergic to most frames so I'm just grateful if there is a pretty pair in any colour that I can wear.
I'd love to have a couple of pairs in different colours but the expense is prohibitive. So I stick to the one pair and I don't change them unless I have to change the lenses which is probably between 2 and 4 years.
No. Any metal colour, NOT plastic!
I've glasses & 'sunnies' of varying ages, ALL with metal! At least they don't move on my sweaty head or oily nose!
AND they last; my oldest sunglasses are 35 years' & one pair of computer/theatre/movie seeing ones' are 40 years!
I've expensive Gucci and Dior frames which I use all the time only changing the lens when necessary. I also have mauve, gold, burgandy and purple as I've 2 pairs of each lens, one in my handbag, prescription sunnies in the car, and computer glasses as well.
I'd only change my frames, when I really had too, so it would be black & more black for me, except the only floral patterned dresses I wear that it doesn't match is a blue 1, so I may also need to buy blue or white frames as well! I used to have to wear glasses full time, but after I have my 2nd cataract removed, I've been told I'll only need reading glasses. Before I needed prescription glasses, I had 7 prs of sunnies, with different coloured frames, then I had to give them all the op shop, except for a pink framed pr, with blue. These were from the middle '60's, so I'm not getting rid of them, as there nearly antique, like me! I recently wore them on my last holiday!
I only need to wear magnified glasses now, which will be so much cheaper! Priceline sell them for $20 each, but very recently I found a shop selling them for $6, but they didn't have many with 2.50 strength lensers, so I'll have another look, next time I'm near the shop, & I'll buy a white framed pr if they sell them!
