    I know the feeling! I've pretty much stopped wearing contacts because my prescription keeps changing and my contacts are so expensive that it's just not worth it. I get my glasses for cheap (~$150) from online stores because I wear them for less than a year and no insurance will cover enough of the cost for store-purchased glasses.

    I hope you'll be able to get the Synapse you want!

    In my euphoric, daydreamy state I did the unthinkable... I left the drain OPEN and the water RUNNING while I put in my contact lenses. And I dropped one.

    A half hour later, after taking the drain apart, I realized it was gone for good. So now instead of my lovely new Synapse I'll be buying new contacts. (Unfortunately I don't wear the super cheap soft kind, I wear the uber expensive gas permeable ones).

    If I'm lucky and insurance covers more of the cost than I think they will, I'll get to purchase my new Synapse later this week.
    Oh no! What a catastrophe. I hope insurance does cover a good part of the cost; you've got to be able to see! And perhaps there will be enough left over in the budget for your new Synapse.

    Well, obviously, if anyone has an Ultraviolet Synapse and wants to trade for any other kind . . . they are in a very good position right now . . .

    Nooooooo!!! x 2

    And again, nooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!

    I was just about to put in a order for one! I too have the Steel/Solar Dyneema one, and was spending waaaaaayyyy too much time on the train imagining a UV Synapse in its place (with the Steel one going to my hubby). :-(

    Oh no.

    I should have clarified. Too late to get a Travel Tray with this order.

    I keep my eyes on eBay and Craiglist/Searchtempest. I also let it be known on this forum that I'm looking for something.

    @WhiteStar, would you mind if your Synapse was second-hand? If I see one for sale somewhere, I'll let you know.

    I've got one; I think you'll love it. It's a gorgeous color, and a great bag, too.
