Dude, I buy my glasses online for $8 a pair - lenses and frames. Shipping is another $5. DIRT CHEAP.
You can get exams at places like Sam's Club and Walmart for pretty darn cheap, too - take that prescription, use it to buy your glasses at one of the online places like Zenni Optical, where I get mine.
You can get the exam and glasses TOGETHER for well under $100, which is usually how much people pay per month for a cell phone. Or cable television. Or eating out. Your choice.
Call your local community health center. If they can't help you directly, they'll know where you should go.
See my source to find a local CHC.

vision insurance pays very little of the actual cost of glasses unless you have a very weak prescription, pick very cheap frames and no extras with the lenses
churches or other agencies may have donated eyeglasses

If you happen to live near an optometry school, you may be able to get eye care at a reduced price. Here is a list of optometry schools in the US.
I live in Oregon and go to one of Pacific University's Clinics. The exams are very thorough. They also offer reduced rates for people without insurance.
