Man, are you getting all your medical needs met in one week or what??? LOL!!

Hey, I like the optomitrist at Sam's Club in Windsor Square (Matthews), Dr. Spoto. Not to mention, the contact lenses there are half what they cost in other doctor's offices. My son just got a year's supply for $238.00 after I took his Rx there - Horizon Eye Care, where he sees the eye doctor, wanted that amount for a SIX month supply of contacts!

We use lenscrafters in the mall, because they repair for free, and thats essential for a 7yr boy

for me, I use Dr. Greenman in Charlotte (off 16) For more serious issues for my eyes. Its a father and 2 sons, they are FABULOUS

I walked out of Visionworks awhile back when I tried to take advantage of some coupon they had, and they kept trying to upsell me. I then went to Costco in Matthews and got what I wanted much cheaper, including the cost of joining.

LOL Loves...I actually was since I FINALLY got a job after ONLY about 8 months LOL and needed to get it all done...and husband's benefits finally kicked in since being converted to a full time employee! I actually go back for the perm. crown tomorrow to Mathew's Dental and am not even nervous Loves!

Thanks for the info guys....I actually did end up going to visionworks and lenscrafters and couldn't find any nice glasses for my big head I did the exam at lenscrafters and think I'm going to get the contacts online or at Sams...I'm having trouble find a good selection of big head glasses though

Sam's has the best price on contacts I've found anywhere

Good luck tomorrow with that dental work!! So glad your hubby is back at work - that's just awesome.

I'll second the vote for Costco. We recently had two in our family price glasses at Walmart and Costco. Costco was at least $100 cheaper on each pair. Took about 1 week from order to call saying they were ready...about the same as Walmart. Haven't priced contacts yet....that will be later when the daughter comes home for spring break.
