Does anyone know what's going on with Zenni Optical's website? I found that site from a Metafilter post a while back. I've been trying to access it for a few days now to check on my order and it's borked.
My employer does not provide vision insurance -and I wear glasses for nearsightedness. The way I see it, I have three options - 1) Use the Lenscrafters coupons in the Sunday paper, 2) Use my AAA member card for a discount at Lenscrafters, 3) Use the measly 20% vision discount I have available as a member of BlueShield, or 4) Sign up for independent vision coverage through a plan like VSP. Is anyone else in a similar boat? What do you use? What do you recommend and advise against using?

Just got my first eye prescription for mild farsightedness. The optometrist said my eyes could still focus on things fine so I didn't need glasses, but if I noticed eyestrain or headaches, then I could fix those problems with glasses. I don't notice eyestrain and only get headaches when I'm low on coffee. Is there any reason to go ahead and get glasses? Do glasses accelerate or slow any futher eye degeneration? [more inside]
Has anyone recently purchased "transitions" lenses (that go from clear to shaded) for your specs? I remember kids who had these in high school (this was 10+ years ago) and they always looked terrible- half-shaded indoors. I've had a few friends recommend them lately, though. [more inside]
