Kids' Glasses at Walmart

Jul 28, 2009

I know that not everyone who reads my blog has a young child who wears glasses. But, for those of you who do (and perhaps some of you might want to pass this on to a friend whose kid wears glasses), Walmart has a great deal this week. But, it’s only good until Saturday, August 1 – so you need to move quickly.

As I’m sure most of you know, glasses are expensive (especially if you don’t have eye insurance!) And, kid glasses are no exception. When my daughter needed her first pair of glasses, I found that it was cheaper for me to go buy her glasses at Costco (even though Costco wasn’t in my insurance plan, it was still less to buy them there than anywhere that was “in” network). But, even with Costco’s good deal, it still wasn’t anywhere near as good as the one Walmart has going this week. In fact, I think I’m going to head down there to get my daughter a “spare” pair – just in case she breaks or loses the pair she has now. The few times she has “temporarily” misplaced them has been stressful enough! I’ve wished many times that we had a spare – just in case.

Anyway, as for Walmart’s deal . . they have a variety of kid frames – both metal and plastic – on sale for $9. The lenses (which include scratch and UV protection) are $29. (Eye exam is not included – so bring your prescription from your eye doctor with you.) Thus, you can get your child a pair (or a spare) of glasses for $38! Trust me. THAT is a good deal.

This might also be a good time to take your child for an eye exam if you think there is a chance they might need glasses. Believe me - you’ll have a hard time getting glasses for less than this!

Thanks for the tip. My son failed two exams with his pediatrician and recommended he go see an optometrist. I'll have to see if I can squeeze him in tomorrow so I can take advantage of this deal.

You know what you could do? Go there and pick out the frames and buy them without the lenses and then go back to get the lenses when you have a prescription. I went and they said I could just buy the frames if I wanted (and then get the lenses if/when I need a 2nd pair for Jordan.) Some of the frames there were low in price to begin with, so the sale price wasn't so great. But some were $40 or $50 regularly, so $9 was a good deal!
