Default Eyeglasses 4 My Man

My man has no glasses. He sent me the prescription from the doctor. I called the eyeglass store and she said she needs to know the measurement from his pupil to pupil. well he didn't send it to me and it will be another 1-2 years b4 he sees the eye doc again.

so she said if i bring a pic she can estimate the distance.

My baby said he wanted to measure his head but she said that is not needed. I have a buy one/get one free coupon which expires friday. Do I:

1. go get the glasses and use the coupon and hope they fit (bring the pic so she can estimate)
2 wait for my man to measure his head (which she said isn't needed)

anyone do this b4???

At some prison they do have some they give them, but they are so ugly, at Will's unit they are big, black plastic ones that make the guys look so bad. Will says he's to cute to wear them LOL, I told him well then your cute A$$ can just be blind then. LOL So needless to say he sits at the front of his class LOL

I would just go ahead and take the picture up there if she can do it like that, that way he will have a extra pair in case somethings happens to them.

Where Roger is in Illinois, he cant send his script out anymore. He has to use the Buddy Holly type glasses. The IDOC doesnt allow the wordly kind of glasses because they are made of metal and have those little screws.

I would say take the picture and dont wait.

I just did this for my husband, he sent me the prescription and authorization to send the glasses in, I took them to Lens Crafters and had no problem whatsoever. THey never asked me about his pupil size???? I would just take the picture in and hope for the best, believe me something is better than nothing...


Good Luck

My husband sent me the script and I found a company on the internet that specialized in filling scripts thru the mail. They sent them all over the US. Hubby was and is very satisfied with the style of his frames and the best part is they were really inexpensive. I had them sent to the prison. I contacted his counselor and he explained the procedure to me.

i decided to wait b/c i called the prison and he is only allowed one pair of glasses. i talked to medic and they said that he can see the eye doc in 3 weeks. they put in a request to have the distance from pupil to pupil measured. this way we know the glasses will fit.

1sassy: what is the Company you used????

Well I guess I was too late to put my two cents in. (LOL)
I was going to say go get them, so that you could use your coupon. But if you donít need glasses and he can only have one pair that would make sense. Best to know that they will fit too. Your such a sweet women Iím sure he feels like the luckiest man in there.

RAM: awww thanks.

actually i went to lenscrafters today. the guy asked to see a pic of my baby and he "guessed" the size. the guiy said he does it all day and he is good at guessing. he said if i go back tomorrrow he will let me buy $89 frames for $75 (prison says no more than $75).


I do not know what my boo would want me to do: wait or go get em. I feel pressured.

For everyone out there looking for a cheap alternative....

I recently ordered eyeglasses for my man from a website called http://www.39dollarglasses.com/

Everything went great! He got the glasses and they fit/look great on him. Those prison issue glasses are HORRIBLE! Here in Wisconsin they use clear plastic frames they are just awful. My man said he'd rather be blind then wear them things I can't say I blame them.
