See below: Go see an optometrist. Just call and make an appointment. They will examine you and do a refraction to see if you need glasses or contact lenses to see better.

Pay them: Optometrists are very happy to accept your money for their measurements for glasses and for the cost of the eyeglasses. So if you pay them, you can get your eyeglasses.
