Subsidized Eye Exams are Back!

I just received a message from someone who went to this event, and was told his glasses would cost 600nis, not 100nis.
I'm not sure what's going on there, so if anyone else has had similar experiences at these events, please be in touch!
I would not want to mislead anyone. I personally am not affiliated with these organizations - I simply posted info from a press release I received.
So if you've gone to one of these events, please let me know what your experience there was! 

UPDATE: When I inquired, one of the organizers told me that multifocal lenses cost 600nis, because they are such expensive lenses to begin with. This is still a HUGE subsidy. (It is possible that some other specialty lenses would also fall into the 600nis category, I didn't get all the details.)

Residents of Northern Israel - it's back! Here's another chance to get a really affordable eye exam and glasses if you missed it last time.

This week, on Thursday, June 15, 2017, you'll have another chance to get subsidized eye exams and glasses, this time in Yishuv Bar Yochia. You'll be able to get a pair of glasses (frames + lenses!) for just 100 shekels, and sunglasses for 50 shekels! There is an option to have this fee waived in case of need. Please send a text to 050-326-7501 to request a waiver.

The event will take place at the Matnas at the entrance to Bar Yochai.

Eye exams are available from 11am - 7pm. 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.

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!

Be sure not to miss out on more ways to save money - find me on Facebook
