    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.

    • Ask your family to borrow money. You can find glasses relatively cheaply.

    • 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. http://www.opted.org/files/public/Graduate_Programs.pdf 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. http://www.pacificu.edu/optometry/patients/index.cfm

    • 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

    • 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.
