February 22, 2013 Glasses Review

I was always one of those kids with great vision growing-up. My mother always wore glasses, but I always thought that it wouldn't pass on to me. Then in high-school I noticed that the board was becoming harder to see and the leaves on trees looked more like blobs. Since I was working after school I used my money to go in for an eye exam and it turned out I needed glasses. Being a teenage girl I decided that I would wear contacts. I stayed wearing contacts until having kids. Once my oldest was born I had a horrible time falling asleep in my contacts and always wearing my contacts longer than I should. So I switched to glasses.

The one thing that has always been hard with having to wear contacts or glasses is the price. Even the lower end plastic frames at the store tend to run over a hundred dollars and if they scratch or if I just plain get tired of them I have to spend another chunk of money to get a new pair. I don't know about other glasses wearers, but I like to have a number of frames in order than I can change them depending on my mood, outfit etc. One of the ways that I have found to saw money while still looking stylish is to order glasses on-line. Recently I was given the opportunity to try a new pair of glasses from

Here is the link to the glasses I chose. I love how easy it is to find great frames on-line from my living room couch. Here are the pros:
  • The prescription was spot on.
  • The frames that I chose are well made and fit my face perfectly.
  • They came quickly and were delivered right to my door. 
  • There aren't a large amount of frames to choose from on the site. 
  • A lot of the frames are unisex, so the frames tend to be on the larger side.
  • It's hard to gauge what glasses will look and feel like on-line. 
Overall, I was very happy with the glasses that I chose. My husband really liked the frames and that they are different than the frames that I already have.  This would be a site that I would order from again.

    1. I used to wear both contacts and glasses, but now I have just switched to glasses. I love ordering them online :)

  3. Now that I use transition lenses, I have to go to a local place but before that, I ordered online and did have some good luck. Those are cute and I'm glad the Rx was right.

    1. I know a lot of people that love transition lenses!
