People in the Knoxville area have been talking about those free glasses from Coastal Contacts that were previously mentioned in this column. Many were understandably skeptical until they saw a pair of the free glasses worn by their Knoxville Socia Media Examimer, and then they were understandably disappointed that they missed it! Free glasses are available again from Coastal Contacts for first-time customers, but these offers do not last long.
You will need a copy of your eyeglass prescription. It does not need to be current, and you do not have to submit any paperwork. If your prescription is lacking one measurement that they ask for, you will need a ruler to measure between your pupils. Someone can help you or you can use a mirror. That is all that is required.
Go to this site and proceed through the steps to get your glasses. Be sure that you opt out of any special lens treatments if you want your glasses to be totally free. Bi-focals and special lens treatments will cost extra, and you will have to pay for shipping and handling and a small insurance fee. My glasses shipped for under $12.00.
You can find Coastal Contacts on Facebook, too.
