Subsidized Glasses Events this Week!
Residents of Northern Israel - particularly the Haifa area - it's back! Here's another chance to get a really affordable eye exam and glasses.
This week, on Wednesday and Thursday, Sept 6 and 7, 2017, you'll have another chance to get subsidized eye exams and glasses, this time in Kiryat Shmuel (near Haifa). 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. Please send a text to 050-326-7501 to request a waiver BEFORE the event.
The event will take place at the Beit Vaad Kehillat Kiryat Shmuel, at Rechov Mohilever #14, Kiryat Shmuel.
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.
