BidmyGlasses wants to help the 30-million people that need vision care and do not have vision insurance. Not every employer provides vision insurance benefits. Vision insurance is expensive. Without employer benefits vision insurance can cost $20/month/person. $240 a year.
For what? A free eye exam and 20% off the cost of frames and lenses? The average eye exam costs $130. The average cost of new eyeglasses is $240. Without employers providing subsidized vision insurance, the total benefit is $180 ($130 exam and 20% of $240). The annual cost of individual premiums is $240.
Be careful about new insurance terms that require a co-payment or $25/deductible for the eye exam.
Still 60-million people visit eye doctors and have vision insurance benefits. Bravo for generous employers!
About the 30-million of us that pay cash. Every bit helps. If you can make one of these special times then you can save. Doctors offer BidmyGlasses special savings on difficult to fill exam times or last-minute exams. Plus, they provide additional savings toward eyeglasses. You can find special savings up to $200 for as little as $65. Plus, no monthly insurance premiums.
Even if you have insurance, we can still help you book an exam online without any phone hassle.

40-million eye exams expire un-used every year while 90-million adults skip annual vision care. Why? It is complicated to find a new optometrist, negotiate an appointment, book-an-exam, and expensive if an employer does not sponsor vision insurance. Patients will make the time for that eye exam when it is easier for them. See Better. Look Better. Save Money. BidmyGlasses
Why so many searching for same day exams? Patients check out locations, doctors, prices, and coupon offers. Then they look for exam times. Real availabilities. Then they pause their search and arrange time for the eye exam. Sometimes it is about the family schedule. Sometimes when they “can” get a day off. An afternoon off. When it is all good … they return and book the exam. That’s usually the evening before, after primetime TV while mom’s paying bills online and planning tomorrow.
