Glasses/contact lenses to borrow in Port Townsend, WA (-1.0 to -1.5)

My partner forgot glasses and contact lenses and is supposed to drive home from Port Townsend (Washington State) today! Anyone in the area have an extra pair of disposable contact lenses she could have? Or glasses she could borrow (and then we'd mail them back)? I believe she has -1.0 in the right eye and -1.5 in the left but probably anything close could help. Thanks.

Target Optical gives me disposable pairs of different brands of contacts to try out when I get me eyes checked there. Might be worth calling if there’s one nearby and seeing if they can give you a pair.

Any drugstore will have cheaters/reading glasses fairly cheap that would come close to that.

Reading glasses have positive diopters (for far-sightedness), so drugstores won't have any that match the needed glasses.

There are swim/sports goggles that have "prescription" lenses without requiring a prescription.

Whether or not these types of goggles are carried in brick and mortar stores... I don't know.
