This is going off Silver's topic of expensive glasses --

A few years ago I had to get glasses. At the time, I didn't have any type of vision insurance at work. They were about $200. The next time I got glasses, I had a discount card, and it cost me over $400!!! Doesn't make any sense to me. Anyhow, that was almost 5 years ago, and about 2 years ago I had a little accident with the glasses and they are now slightly crooked. That annoyed me, so I just quit wearing them, because I just can't afford to pay $400 +.... even with the insurance it is ridiculous. Fortunately, the dr. said that I really don't have a vision problem, my eyes are just strained, probably from being on the computer all day at work. I can see fine, but say, words on a road sign are a teensy bit fuzzy until I get closer. My boyfriend bought the See Clearly Method a while back, tried it once and then just set the videos aside to collect dust. Since my eyes are only strained, I am going to pull out those videos and give them a try in hopes that will strengthen my eye muscles and get rid of the strain. I was just wondering if anyone else had any success with the See Clearly Method??

I've never heard of it...

I'm technically supposed to wear glasses because I have an astigmatism in both eyes, but I can see well enough that I don't always wear them. It just depends on how my eyes feel when I wake up or how lazy I am.

I'd really like to hear how it works for you. I have to wear my glasses at work and would love to not wear them.
I'm a little farsighted.

I also have astigmatism but I think its only in my left eye. I am supposed to wear glasses but I usually only wear them to lectures and when I forget to take them off after lectures - which is pretty much any day when it isn't raining, which in England isn't that many!

The ads always sounded like a rip-off to me. I have astigmatism in my right eye, am farsighted in it, also. My left eye is lazy and getting lazier. I only need glasses for reading and needlework. For my money, I've gotten the best deals at Dollar General or Target. My most recent purchase was at Dollar General for $5. They are 2.75 strength...stronger than I could find anywhere else. They have spring hinges and are the most comfortable glasses I've ever worn.

I got a pair at Target that cost $8 that are very light weight...no frames around the lenses...not quite as strong as the pair from Dollar General, but they are fine for shopping. However, I happened to leave them at my DD's therefore I purchased the ones at Dollar General.

I get the half glasses because bifocals only antagonize my neck problem.

Apparently, there have been a lot of complaints about this "method".
Check here http://www.quackwatch.com/01QuackeryRelatedTopics/seeclearly.html for further information.

Beware of ANYTHING that sounds too good to be true.

The quackwatch site finds fault with any therapy that's not mainstream. I'd take what's in that article with a whole shaker of salt.

That's not the only site that debunks the See Clearly Method. Just try googling it. There are many sites that indicate that it is a fraud.
