I’m a featured guest on Kristen’s blog, We are THAT Family, today. Be sure to visit!
Yesterday afternoon, we went through a semiannual ritual, a visit to the eye doctor for the boys. This was the first year when both were scheduled at the same time. (Yay, me!) The check up went well. Then, due to substantial changes, both boys received a new prescription for their lenses. Ka-ching!

In years past, I would shell out hundreds of dollars there in the doctor’s office for new frames and lenses. I did so, because I thought that was my only option. After choosing new glasses, I would shell out nearly $200 per boy, and that was with insurance covering part of the cost. The children would skip with glee to the car, while I would limp with my bruised wallet.
Then, Toddler Boy came to live at our house. He had NO idea how to deal with glasses. Which meant he broke Woody’s frames the first week he was with us. I called the doctor’s office to see if I could order a new pair. Yes, I could for $450 and 7 days. I could.
I thought there had to be another option. Enter, iclickoptical.com.
I found Woody’s frames listed on their site. I entered all of the pertinent information. Then held my breath as I clicked the “add to cart” button.
What?!?! A new set of frames for his glasses was less than the cost of a family trip to Chick-fil-a?!?!!! Woo-hooo!!!!
When I added lenses, it was $21.90. Yeah.

So when we walked out of the doctor’s office yesterday. I was able to skip with glee, right along with the kids. We drove home, pulled up the website, clicked through hundreds of options and found what they wanted. I added the non-scratch coating, the UV coating, and the anti-glare coating. I even ordered both boys two pairs of glasses. I ordered 4 pairs of glasses. My final total was $102.36 with free shipping.
That works for me!
