Subsidized Eye Exams and Glasses!
Residents of Northern Israel - particularly the Galilee area - it's back! Here's another chance to get a really affordable eye exam and glasses.
Next week, on Sunday and Monday, Sept 17 and 18, 2017, you'll have another chance to get subsidized eye exams and glasses, this time in Karmiel. You'll be able to get a pair of glasses (standard frames + standard lenses!) for just 100 shekels, and sunglasses for 50 shekels! Specialty lenses are subsidized on a different scale (multifocals, for example, will cost 600nis and transition lenses for most prescriptions will cost 300nis - still a really awesome deal! My high index lenses cost an extra 200nis, the cost varies by exactly what you need), and some frames are a bit more expensive, but still affordable. There is an option to have this fee or a portion of it waived in case of need, so if you cannot afford the 100nis copay, please ask for assistance while you are there.
The event will take place at the Moadon WIZO, at Rechov Sarig 20, Karmiel.
Eye exams are available from 10am - 6pm on both days. If you have glasses already (even old ones - they will help narrow down what you need even if you need an updated prescription) or a prescription for new glasses, please bring them with you to save time.
Please note: Glasses are not made on the spot. You will receive a text message when they are ready to be picked up, at the same place where you order them.
Hope this helps some of you out there! There's been a lot of discussion about the cost of glasses lately.

I'm sure there will be similar programs in other towns - please let me know if you know of any!
