Sear's Optical usually has deals year-round for their Acuvue 2 contact lenses. In the end, the annual supply for 8 boxes comes out to only $12 a box after rebates. Almost every stores eye exam is outrageously expensive, and Sear's is no exception. Their exam lasts less than 10 minutes, which may or may not be a good thing. Last time I recall I saw the price, it was hovering near the 3-digit price. Of course, insurance will help bring that cost down!
