It's been a couple of years, but it's time to open up the old hockey bag and take to the ice this fall. I love hockey. I love cold weather (not as much as hot weather, but still). There is only one thing I don't love about hockey -- besides the Red Wings -- having to wear glasses. They fog up, they limit my peripheral vision, they're dangerous... I needed contacts.

I haven't worn contacts regularly in many years. Frankly, when I sit in front of a computer most of the day, they're not comfortable, but a few years ago I wore them for sports and it made an enormous difference. I'm no Gretzky (or as the kids say, "I'm no Sidney"), so every bit of help is, well, helpful.

I checked online and was amazed at the number of sites selling contact lenses these days -- and that most of them were roughly the same price. It also struck me how different this product was to sell than eyeglasses. Essentially, if you have a valid contact lens prescription, and if you know what you wear, it's all about price -- and the promo codes. All of this is more important for those of us not filling the hallway closet with box after box of these.

So I whipped up a grid of prices... and it turned into a site. I get an email every week or two asking about contacts, and finally figured, "Why not?" It's an exercise in modifying a WordPress template to my needs and posting my research again for anyone interested in it. I plan on updating the prices and promos regularly, because what else am I going to do as I watch the new seasons of "entourage" and "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" this Fall into Winter?

If you wear contacts (or know anyone who does) take a look.


P.S. No, this doesn't mean I've lost my passion for glasses. I'm still in my dozens of glasses 95% of the time.
