UPDATED INFO: Subsidized Glasses - NEW store hours!
I recently posted about the new year-round subsidized optical store: "Ezra Ba'Re'iyah" inside Pitchon Lev in Karmiel.
Find them at HaLevona St #1, Karmiel. You can reach them by phone at 050-326-7501
They've changed their hours of operation, so I'm posting the new hours HERE. In any case, it's good to call before you go, to verify that places are open - sometimes things change and websites don't get updated.
Opening hours are:
Sun: 12:00 - 7:00pm
Mon - Thurs: 10:00am - 4:00pm
Fri: 9:00am - 2:00pm
You'll be able to get a pair of glasses (standard frames + standard lenses!) for just 100 shekels! Sunglasses are 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.
Additional subsidies may be available. If you cannot afford your glasses, please ask at the store about additional subsidies.
Please note: Glasses are not made on the spot, as far as I know.
Hope this helps some of you out there! There's been a lot of discussion about the cost of glasses lately!
