Received Glasses

this is a follow up to original post

On September 8th, Heidi received her glasses that she had waited 12 business days for (not bad turnaround time). They came wrapped in a fabric sewed, wax sealed box from Pakistan – the post office employee said she’s never seen anything come in a fabric wrapped box before – score 1 for Pakistan!

Inside the fabric wrap were 3 styrofoam cases each holding a case with glasses that were wrapped in non-candied cotton candy and also a glass wiping cloth. Heidi tried the fit and they were all pretty decent with some fitting on her nose better than others. She wanted to note that it’s hard for her to find glasses that fit at a regular glasses shop because of the unique lengths on her face. The prescription was spot on for all of her glasses so for her that’s great – she loves having the prescription sunglasses for sunny driving days – she’s never had them before so that is a real treat.

For $75, including 3 pairs of prescription glasses and shipping from Pakistan, this seems to be a big score – I can hardly wait till my eyes degrade enough to need glasses; hopefully it will be before I turn 60…
