Strange topic, but a curious one.
Have any of you pondered on the matter of your expenditure on your journey through Endmyopia?
Of course, this would vary in a plethora of degrees based on how expensive glasses are in your city, the degree of myopia and/or astigmatism you have, and how many mistakes you have made.
Luckily, I’ve been going to this cheap eyeglasses shop in which I am basically a dictator, lol. I can literally buy only the lenses and simply plop it into my old frames. That means I can basically stick to one frame for my ENTIRE journey of normalisations and likewise for my differentials.
I’m currently planning to buy six lenses ahead because I’ll be leaving for another country for university And I’m afraid I would be shunned by the totalitarianism of the optometry industry and halt these gainzz. So that’s why I felt the need to calculate a few things.
I’ll convert everything to USD so that you may compare it to your expenses.
For context, my starting point was
As of now, I’ve spent money on
1 eye hospital check-up = $47
4 normalised pairs of lenses = $36
my differentials (frame + lens) = $32
1 mistake (a pair of lenses) = $10 (price increased )
If no more mistakes are to be made, there are
7 more normalised lenses to go to -1.00 in both eyes = 7 x $10 = $70
3 more differentials to compensate for my eyes getting better (yay) = 3 x $10 = $30
That means I’ll be spending about $225 for my entire journey of Endmyopia (if my frames don’t break and my eyes don’t suddenly explode).
I’m curious to see how this fares to your expenses!
