But what I wanted to share with you is the copywriter's paragraph describing the collection of reading glasses shown just above it. Or, as the copywriter improvises -- eyebobs.
First of all, there's that mysterious sentence -- "Convertible to prescription by a qualified optician." That sounds reassuringly scientific, but does anyone know what it might mean? And next, we're lacking any indication whether $79 buys one pair or five. Then the copyeditor waxes mildly poetic naming the frame colors, but forgets to say "specify lens strength." Perhaps the shipment will include an assortment? -- all the way from 1.25 magnification to 3.0, so you can move along as you start to develop cataracts?
But my main point, the reason I'm moved to mention all this to you, is that the eyebobs shown are absolutely identical to the reading glasses offered for
$1 plus 8 cents tax
at my local Dollar Store.
and come to think of it, I'm not sure they charge tax on medical items.
