Glasses USA Review

So earlier this year, the folks at GlassesUSA.com contacted me about doing a post for them, and were kind enough to send me a gift card to get a pair of glasses to review. But before I show you which ones I got, I want to talk a little about the experience:

First of all, when I first got on the site I have to admit that I was completely overwhelmed! They have so many different kinds of eyeglasses and frames, and you can even get the frames with just glass if you want. They also had a bunch of lovely vintage inspired frames, which made me happy. They also have a 110% lowest price guarantee and a 110% satisfaction guarantee; and offer exclusive discounts to their FaceBook and Twitter fans (which I didn't use because gift cards don't work with discounts.)

So anyway, being as indecisive as it is, I had to recrute the help of my big sister to help me decide which glasses to get. After a lot of thought (and whining on my part) I finally decided to get a pair of prescription glasses instead of fake lenses to wear with contacts. Then I had to chose a frame. They had a really cool virtual mirror that let me try on some of the pairs I was looking at, which was really fun, and helped me decide on which frames I wanted.

Once I chose a frame I needed to put your prescription in so I could get the correct frames. I called my eye doctor and had them mail me my prescription, but oh my goodness, I had no idea how hard those things are to read. I would have been completely lost if GlassesUSA.com hadn't had a short article on reading prescriptions. It was a life saver! I was hugely impressed with the shipping. It was supposed to take several days to finish the glasses and then several more days after they shipped, but I got the glasses just three days later, which was a really nice surprise.


And now for the glasses: the glasses are gorgeous and I'm really happy with how they look on. It's fun to have a pair of colorful, non-geeky looking glasses, and just to have another pair so I have options besides my black pair. The prescription worked out great (I was so afraid I was going to mess it up and not be able to see out of them!) and I can see perfectly while wearing them. My only concern is that the lenses seem a bit loose in the frames, but that might just be due to the different style of glasses vs my other pair.

All in all I'm very pleased with my purchase and would buy glasses from GlassesUSA.com next time I'm in the market for a new pair (and I would probably get a cat eye pair!).

P.S. Sorry for the crummy outfit and photos. Now you know what I look like on lazy days.

  2. I saw your glasses BEFORE I heard you tell me about the glasses place. I'm sneaky like that. And it wasn't because I helped you pick them out. Bet you can't guess how I did it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
