Subsidized Glasses Event in the Far North
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 Tuesday, July 4, 2017, you'll have another chance to get subsidized eye exams and glasses, this time in Shlomi. 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!), and some frames are a bit more expensive, but still affordable. 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 Merkaz L'Kashish in the Ben Gurion neighborhood in Shlomi.
Eye exams are available from 10am - 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.
