Default Multiifocals

They seemed to have a good stockpile on hand. I walked past another nice shop today and they also had a large stock that I could see from outside.

I believe the Multifocals I wear are pricier than single vision but with the exam and fitting included it seems a better deal, plus I'd save the $19 a month for insurance. With insurance I still pay for the fitting. It's all a racket.

Default Glasses

If they order anything special, the lenses can run between $20 and $40us.
Very low cost compared to there...
How long does it take for the glasses to be made? Wondering if they'd be ready in a week or so as that's how long I usually stay.

If they have the lenses you need in stock it will take just one hour. No idea how long if they have to order.
I "assume" just a day or two if ordered and less if you have this done in Manila. Most places are pretty good on speed..

Default Cost of dental or services

I should cancel my US vision insurance and get it done in the PI on vacation.
My wife had an abscess tooth and she couldnt' take it anymore the pain so me and my daughter son and grandson went to the dental office in Sta Cruz Laguna, my first impressions were WOW, marble floors, several rooms with the latest equipment even watching movies while they take your tooth out, they have an HD TV that is situated at the same angle as you're sitting at in the chair, air-conditioned space free drinks, free coffee, cable TV and internet and air hockey game, yea Oh and cookies and crackers, they cleaned her teeth, took out the offending tooth and it came to 900 Peso's and they took credit cards.

I had a couple of pairs done and it was any 2-3 days. Mind you I did then spend 250 about 3 months later having a pair made in the UK that i could use.
