    Hi All

    I'm going on holiday to USA later in the year, and I wondered if I
    should take my spectacles prescription to get a better deal.

    Can anyone see advantages or pitfalls in my plan?

  3. You should carry your spectacle Rx on your person regardless, as it is
    a real calamity to break your glasses on the road. I don't have
    personal experience with your health care delivery system, but I have
    been told by associates that those of you with nationalized health care
    get overcharged on materials (like glasses) when there is no profit to
    be made on examinations. We have a number of German citizens visit
    every year to take advantage of how much cheaper that German-made
    frames and lenses are sold here in the U.S.
