Free Eye Exams

I am looking at this screen through computer glasses, and when they come off, on will go my progressive lens glasses.  I think insurance has helped us a bit with our glasses, though I'm not 100% sure, as we did pretty well finding good deals before we had insurance for vision. 

With another potential job change coming up, and the possibility that we may not have the same insurance we do now, we may lose our vision insurance.

I'm not 65 yet, but I was reading some retirement advice that suggested that you might be able to get a free eye exam by ophthalmologists that volunteer to do them for those that can't afford them and need an exam.  If this is you, and you are over 65, it suggests that you go take a look at EyeCareAmerica.org to find an ophthalmologist that will offer free eye exams in your area.
