I lost a contact this morning.. and couldnt find it.. and I do not have a back-up pair b/c this was my last pair.. and now I can't get a new pair until I have an eye exam.. and buy more contacts..The glasses I have are old and not up to date..but DH wants to get me a new pair..

This all means I have to put my ob/gyn appt. on hold for now.. b/c now since we do not have the Eye Meds card to pay for the eye exam (we would still have to pay but not as much) i have to pay for the eye exam and new contacts..instead of getting to go to the Drs like i want to.. GOD.. sometimes i feel like someone above doesn't want me to have another baby right now.. b/c everytime i try to do something for myself to help get pregnant.. something comes up and stops me.. or prolongs the process even longer..

BTW.. the eye exam and new contact.. and glasses will probably be $300+.. since the exam alone is $115..contacts range ne from $50-75 just for 2 boxes.. then since DH wants to get me a pair of glasses incase this happends again.. that will cost somewhere from $99-$150 extra dollars.. I feel like the world is pulling against me..

where do you go for your eye exams hun? I go to walmart since they are the cheapest and I think it cost me $75 for the eye exam. I just recently bought new glasses from them too that cost around $200 for a cheap pair unfornately. And I would suggest not getting your contacts from your eye doctor. You can go to 1800contacts.com or coastalcontacts.com and get them for half the price you pay at the eye doc. The only thing they require your prescription to order them. One of them I'm not sure which (I think its 1800conctacts) sometimes requires your doc permission or something like that. I lost a contact like a week before our wedding and I REFUSED to get married in my old geeky glasses so I went to 1800contacts and since I hadn't had an eye exam in 2 years they wouldnt let me order but I went to coastalcontacts and they let me order Hope that helps

Huggs! I would call around places for the eye exam and cost of the glasses. Last year DH got two pairs of glasses for $100 for both of them. I don't remember where he went but they also had a deal with contacts. Like 2 pairs of contacts and a pair of glasses for $125 or something like that.

Yea I called Walmart eye center.. they are cheaper.. I think it's not that bad.. I probably can't get new contacts until I have an exam..I actually thought about 1800contacts.. but i just never called about it.. but maybe I will check them out and see..might check out the coastlacontacts.. this just sux b/c i cant see out of one eye.. and its starting to give me a headache.thanks for the advice

Cheap glasses: Here

Cheap Contacts: Here

Walmart usually has the cheapest exams, they should also give you a trial pair of contacts when you have your exam.

I have done this on several occassions. I am soooo freaking blind, and I have to have contacts. I did that last year, and didn't really have the money for an exam, so I called my dr. explained the situation, and they gave me a trail pair until I could get in in like a week or 2 for an exam. It wouldn't hurt to ask! I hope you get everything worked out soon!!

I just thought about this... if you call your doctor to get your prescription you could go on 1-800-Contacts and have them shipped overnight. -- you could also use the place that april posted.
