About a week ago I got an email from GlassesShop.com asking if I would like to do a review of their prescription glasses. I was ecstatic because I was actually in the market for purchasing a new pair of prescription sunglasses before we move back to Europe! I’ve always wondered how affordable eyeglasses online measure up to the pricey pairs you get at the ophthalmologist’s office. Here’s a little about my experience.
GlassesShop.com offers prescription glasses & prescription sunglasses for much cheaper than you can purchase them at a brick-and-mortar store. You can also buy many of the pairs of eyeglasses without prescription lenses making them a great choice for anyone looking for a new pair of shades. They offer a wide variety of styles and shapes. I think this is a great option if you are on a strict budget, but still want to expand your style. However, I strongly recommend purchasing eyeglasses only after you have visited your eye doctor and have your correct prescription.
As far as selection, GlassesShop.com can’t be beat. They have hundreds of styles that you can search by size, shape, material and color. They also carry kids eyeglasses! GlassesShop.com even offers a tool where you can virtually try on glasses using a picture you take with the camera on your smart phone! It’s a great option for someone unsure of what shape would look best.
For my prescription sunglasses to arrive, it only took less than a week. The packaging was secure, including a box, a plastic case, cleaning cloth, discount code, and my new sunglasses.
I chose the Amanda Cat Eye in black. The fit is very comfortable and the tint is very dark. The color and design of the glasses are beautiful and incredibly lightweight. After wearing them for one day, I was so excited that I purchased another pair of regular eyeglasses as well!
The eyeglasses I purchased were roughly $25 with shipping after I used the coupon code below! Sunglasses are about $40-50 with the code as well! Not a bad price at all! Even if they are a little less durable than the designer name brands, I won’t be upset if my toddler destroys them or I lose them!
