Drugstore Contact Lenses
Giv'atayim, Israel and the Palestinian Territories
A new offering that I've never seen domestically in the United States or abroad (until now) is that of prescription contact lenses available off the shelf in a drugstore.
There are usually three or four brands available, and come in quarter-strength correction increments ranging between -1.00 and -6.00. Tatiana tells me the prices are very reasonable for contacts, which is rather surprising, considering that most everything in this country is on par with about the most expensive location that I've traveled in outside of the Caribbean.
