Save Money on Kids Prescription Eyeglasses #ad #2017Spring

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of as part of our Spring Guide. All opinions expressed are our own.

I always knew that boys were rough and tough and that if I wanted to have nice things I had better protect them. Those wrestling matches can get pretty intense at times and even Dad has been known to break a thing or two!

It’s true, I guard things that I really love, but sometimes there are just some things that you can’t protect when an all out WWE wrestling match is going on in your living room.

Our oldest son has had prescription glasses since he was about 9 years old. Let me tell you, trying to protect those glasses when on the face of a little boy who thinks he’s indestructible is NOT AN EASY TASK! He was such an active little guy and I just knew the moment we brought the glasses home that we were going to be replacing them often.

Unfortunately, I was right.

We have gone through so many pairs of glasses over the years with just this one child. The sad part, we don’t have eye insurance, so it was costing us a fortune every time we had to replace the glasses. Not only that, but I was having to wait for the new glasses to come in once they were ordered. It was not cool to go to school with tape on your glasses, so I was paying extra fees to have the glasses shipped faster.

Fast forward to now…

I have learned so much over the years. One thing that I’ve learned (now that I have 5 boys) is that I was right to think that boys were rough and tough and I was right to think that those glasses were going to be putting up with an awful lot of abuse. What I wasn’t right about though was that I was going to have to spend a lot of money. I’ve learned that by purchasing our kids prescription glasses online I can save my family a lot of money!

Our son is older now, so he doesn’t really need a back up pair, however we have an 11 year old in glasses as well and I highly recommend having a second (or backup) pair of glasses for younger kids. You just never know when you might need them—-like the time our son forgot his glasses at school, or the time he sat on his glasses and broke them, or maybe the time he was wrestling and they were smashed. You get the point, right?

  1. This. Is. AWESOME! It’s great to save money on any glasses in general, but it’s EXTRA awesome when you can save on kids’ glasses. Kids are so good at ruining their glasses.

  2. I am right there with you! I have a son that just got glasses and he is learning how to handle them better each day. It’s great to save money on glasses especially with kids.

    • I think the older they get and the longer they have them, the better they are with them, however no matter what age they are, there is still that chance that they might break them! Heck, I’ve sat on mine before! Oops!

  3. These are really great prices! I have one in glasses and he’s not the most gentle kid on the planet. HA

  4. Thanks for sharing!! I spend so much on my kids glasses. I will definitely check this website out.

  5. Wow! I need to tell my sister about this place. She has 3 kids and all of them wear glasses. Being a a budget is hard enough with children, and when they need extra things like glasses, savings REALLY help! Thanks so much for sharing!

    • I totally agree! I hope your sis is able to check out the site and find something she likes—-there are so many pairs of glasses to choose from! πŸ™‚

  6. Thank you so much for this information! Two of my three children wear glasses, so we are well aware just how expensive they can become.

  7. Debbie Mc says:

    What a great service!! I’ll be sharing with my friends too with kids who need glasses!!!

  8. I agree! I too started getting my eyeglasses online and save SO MUCH money! I DO have eye insurance but even with it I pay less getting mine online. With kids – oh yeah even worse as they break them all the time. This is a great way to save big money on kids prescription eyeglasses!

  9. Jennifer Van Huss says:

    I have worn glasses since I was 3 years old! I have had many oops times too! I love this idea of getting good quality glasses for a great price. My baby is suppose to be checked in Sept. Lets hope she doesn’t have it!

    • Oh my! I’m sure you probably did go through a lot of glasses over the years! My 6 year old is on his hands and doing flips and spins more than he’s on his feet! I couldn’t imagine trying to keep glasses on his face! Good luck at your little one’s check up!

  10. Glasses can get so outrageously expensive. Anything that helps me save money on glasses for my kids is a winner in my book.

  11. These are great prices and I just had sticker shock at a brick and mortar store when buying glasses. It is always great to find a way to save money and get quality classes.

    • Oh, I hear you! My sister sent me pictures of herself trying glasses on the other day and I noticed the sticker on them had a pricetag of several hundred dollars! I told that girl to get over here for a lesson in savings! hehe!

  12. Thank you for sharing these great prices. Prescription glasses can really get expensive.

  13. I need to get my husband to the eye doctor. I can tell his sight is getting worse. I would love some of these for him!

    • Good luck! I hope his sight isn’t too bad! If he doesn’t need to upgrade his prescription at least you know where you can go to save money on prescription eyeglasses! πŸ™‚

  14. This is a great way to save money on prescription glasses! I am constantly losing mine so a backup pair would be great o have!

    • Oh, I know! I’ve even sat on mine and broke them before—not good since I need mine to drive! Now that I have a back up pair I’m good! πŸ™‚

  15. Jeni Hawkins says:

    Eyeglasses are one of those necessary evils. If you can save on them that is always a big help!

  16. Sounds like a great deal on eye glasses. I am always shocked at how expensive eye exams and glasses are–great to see that you found a great discount to share!

  17. OMG as a mother of a son I know making them take care of anything is tough. Glad you found an answer, I’m in the market for glasses now.

    • I’m so glad you found our site then! I hope this post was helpful and that you are able to find a pair of eyeglasses that you love! And yes, boys are so rough and tough on things!

  18. Oh my! Eyeglasses can be sooo expensive and when children are running around, whether it is sports or playtime, a backup pair is always nice to have for those ooops moments. And with five boys, you should be their spokesperson! πŸ™‚ I can’t think of anyone better! lol

    • Haha, right!? We only have 2 in glasses right now, but my husband and I both wear glasses as well. I’m sure it’s only a matter of time.

  19. I need to take my oldest son to get his eyes checked. He needs new glasses. Kids are hard on them. Thankfully, my kids didn’t have to wear them until they were a bit older.

    • Kids are definitely hard on them. That is great that yours were older when they had to get glasses. Even my oldest son has had mishaps with his glasses though–sigh.

  20. How convenient is this! Great to find out that you can order prescription glasses and have them delivered to your front door.

    • Isn’t it!? I can’t believe how far technology has come these days! Now we can get an eye exam, take our prescription online, try glasses on online, order and boom…they arrive on our doorstep! Saves so much money and so much time!

  21. And I’ve just added this page to my favorites! My son has been wearing eye glasses since 5 years old and I’m tired of spending an arm and a leg each time his lenses gets scratched or the frame breaks OR his prescription changes… I’m not made out of money people ! thank you for this because he is in need of new ones RIGHT NOW! (this week his broke!) this post came at a perfect time : )

    • I’m so glad you stumbled by our site and were able to read this post just when you needed it! There are so many great quality glasses to choose from on the site. I hope you find something you love and that your son loves! πŸ™‚

  22. Oh yes, even when they’re grown up (my husband) they’re still rough on glasses. Always nice to have a backup pair.

  23. My husband and I are the only ones in our house that need glasses. I have a feeling that both of my daughters will need them when they get older though. I’ll keep this site in mind, thanks!

    • You’re welcome! It’s definitely worth bookmarking. You never know when you’re going to need a new pair of glasses. πŸ™‚

  24. I know from first hand experience how expensive it can be to get glasses for your kids. I think this website is a great way to save!

  25. Oh my goodness, 5 boys? I have trouble sometimes containing 1! Luckily he doesn’t need glasses yet. My side of the family all has astigmatism, but his father’s side have perfect vision. We’re hoping he takes after his fathers side, but just in case the tables turn, I’ll keep this site in mind!

    • Hehe, yes 5 boys! They definitely keep me busy! It’s always to have money saving sites in your back pocket in case you need them! πŸ˜‰

  26. Our son is not wearing glasses, but I’ll keep this in mind for future reference. And yes, boys can be rough and tough. πŸ™‚

  27. It would be so nice to be able to save money on eyeglasses. I think it’s really going to help especially for parents who are under a budget.

    • It definitely does help! Just this week we had to make an appointment to have the eyes checked on 2 of our boys. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we don’t have more glasses to buy, but if we do, we know how to get great quality glasses without spending a lot of money! πŸ™‚
