I was reaching for a pair of socks in the ol' socks and underwear drawer a while back and felt a strange lump under a pile of some of the more rarely worn articles in the back corner. I pulled out the 39DollarGlasses micro-fiber pouch and found the origin for the GlassyEyes site.

It was my DIY-"fixed" pair of Ray-Ban RB5010 glasses. I'd been looking for them for over a year. Taking them out and popping them on, I had mixed feelings that quickly turned to pure thankfulness.

If they had broken at a different time in a different manner, I'm sure I'd still be in a pair of overpriced frames and lenses of the greedy LensCrafters monster. Thankfully I was broke -- and willing to take a chance (or two).

I'm still giddy every time I get another of these affordable, perfect pairs of eyeglasses. I just received a couple new pair in the mailbox over the past week -- bringing the total collection to two dozen (I think). More on them in the next few days.

I'm not going to lose these again. Maybe a display case is in order... ;-)

(ED. NOTE: Due to popular demand -- The un-broken frames on my face are the p113 frame at Optical4Less -- about halfway down the "Plastic Eyewears" page. It's back in stock! I own two pair -- one sunglasses, one not.)

I'm really thankful I found your blog. My company offers a $100 reimbursement benefit for eyeglasses, which allowed me to get 4 pairs! Bought 2 pair from EBD and 2 from Goggles4u. They're all great!

just got my pair of p113 from G4U, and I think I was the last person, because they've now been discontinued, so sad, since I was looking forward to getting a tinted photochromic pair. Keep up the great work!
