I’ve worn glasses since I was in the 3rd grade. One could say that I have a love hate relationship with them. Buying new glasses has always been as exciting as going to the dentist for me. Do you know how hard it is to pick out frames when you are too blind to see the frames on your face? Very frustrating. I usually depend on my husband’s opinion on whether or not a frame looks good or not, unfortunately our tastes aren’t always the same. My vision is too poor for contacts, so unless I want to shell out nearly $7000 for custom Lasik then eyeglasses it is.
So when GlassesUSA contacted me to review their prescription glasses I jumped at the opportunity. I do have to admit that it is hard to shop for glasses online when you can’t physically put them on but it does take off some of the pressure of buying. GlassesUSA has a huge variety of frames to choose from. I honestly had a hard time picking just one pair. The good news is that since the frames are so reasonably priced that you can buy more than more pair! The ordering process was easy and all I had to do is get my prescription from my Optometrist. You can either provide the script online, fax it, or email it. They provide all of the same "extras" that other optical shops. You can purchase additional options such as light and thin lenses, AR coating, or anti-scratch coating which range in cost from $4.95 to $110 extra.
I got the “Storm Blue” drill mount rimless frames which were $49.95 including lenses (plus S & H which is free for orders over $99.) My order arrived in a little over a week. They included a cleaning cloth and hard shell case. It also came with a coupon for 15% off my next purchase and a coupon for a friend for 10% off. I'm really impressed with these prescription eyeglasses. They are made out of light weight and flexible metal so they are easy on the nose and durable. I did find that one of the difficulties of purchasing frames online is that they don't come adjusted to fit. I had to take mine to an optical shop to have them fitted properly and have the arms cut down to fit. My optical shop did this for free.
