Age Is Discount on New Glasses

If a parent or friend over 65 is about due for an eye examination and new glasses, a major optical firm is offering free examinations, a percentage discount on frames--and they're searching for the oldest eyeglass wearers in their regional and national marketplace.

Pearle Vision's "Your Age Is Your Discount" program on frame prices runs through April 4, and applies to customers of all ages.

Free "Silver Screenings" for individuals over 40 years of age also are available through April 4 and include a vision exam to measure the accuracy of current prescription eyeware and a glaucoma screening.

A complete examination and a free pair of eyeglasses will be given to the oldest customer in each of Pearle's more than 100 regional markets.
