10% off of purchases of $100 and more. Edit #3: Please check back often because although I may not add new items, I may change the quantities around because I get shipments almost every day and I will try to reorder things that sold well. Even though I may say "can not reorder," it is usually my best guess. But scouring the internet, I may be able to find someone who may supply it. I'll simply number them and you will PM me with what numbers you want. All of it goes to help pay for optometry school. I accept paypal. Shipping to outside the US is only $1 more for entire order.
