This post brought to you by Zenni Optical. All opinions are 100% mine. Good vision is not something not to be taken for granted. With the onset of midlife came a decline in vision. The optometrist affirmed this was a common middle-aged occurrence and in generally, the vision continues to diminish as we age. This didn’t spur a midlife crisis as I immediately thought about my youngest son Red. He was born with very bad vision, nearly legally blind in one eye. While his vision problems were to a legal extent corrected by glasses, his vision was never correct. Recalling our first visit to the ophthalmologist when he was only 15 months old was a sad milestone however, it curbed that midlife crisis for me. Unlike Red and so many others, I had the good fortune of perfect vision for many years.
Zenni Optical provides affordable and fashionable eyeglasses. In fact, Time magazine Editor Bill Saporito discussed a $1000 pair of eyeglasses in the July 4 issue entitled “Eyes on the Price”. This sparked a snarky note and valid recommendation for Zenn Optical. The note read like this,
Hey, Bill, Can You Read This?
Please tell me editor Bill Saporito is receiving mental-health treatment, because he is insane for spending $1,000 on a single pair of glasses. I buy glasses from Zenni Optical, an online site. It’s $20 for a complete set at my doorstep, shipping included.

Visiting Zenni Optical, I found the readers information to be true! Choosing an almost identical pair of frames and inserting my prescription proved a 50% saving on the eyeglasses I’m wearing now.
In addition, they have a really cool feature that shows how the glasses will look on you. Simply upload a photo and place the glasses. I’m due for an annual eye exam and more than likely new glasses. Zenni Optical will definitely be on my eyeglass comparison list!
