When you are someone who wears glasses, there are few ways you can change your look more quickly than by swapping out frames. As a girl who has glasses, but rarely wears them (it’s ok, my eye doctor said I don’t have to as my prescription is so teeny tiny and hasn’t changed in a decade), I often confuse people when they see me wearing my glasses (normally on long drives and at the movies) because they so rarely see me wearing them. What’s funny is that my husband and I have nearly the same prescription but he wears his glasses everyday, I think the difference being that his glasses feel comfortable, while mine never have. Until now that is, thanks to my new glasses from GlassesShop.com.
Over the years I’ve had a number of different pairs of glasses, but all have suffered from the same problem, the frames themselves are sooo small. You see, I have a very thin bridge so it’s difficult to find frames that fit my bridge and don’t constantly fall right off my face. And when I do find a pair they always are a smaller sized frame, which isn’t terrible, but it makes me feel like I’m always looking above/below/around frames. The smaller lens means that even with my slight prescription, wearing my glasses for any length of time leaves me feeling a bit woozy because I’m always looking around lenses. It’s okay when I’m driving and focusing on the road, or watching a movie screen, but for day to day life it’s not that fun.
With that in mind, when given the opportunity to check out GlassesShop.com I had one main goal in mind – find a pair of frames that were a bit bigger than what I usually get, but would still fit my face, and looked halfway decent.
As with anything, it took a lot of searches and a lot trying on of virtual glasses (by the way, having a current, face-on photo of yourself when checking out glasses online is a must-have. It’s not quite the same as trying them on in real life but you still get a good idea of what a frame will look like on you. Plus you can take screen shots and compare side by side your top picks before making a decision. So super helpful!
In the end I chose the Callan Rectangle in Black, sent off my prescription and hoped when they arrived they would look ok.
When you order glasses from GlassesShop.com, the glasses are made over seas so it takes a little while for them to get to your door. Because my glasses were shipped to my mailbox that I only check once every week or two, I’m not exactly sure when they finally arrived, but at most they took 4 weeks to go from placing my order to having them in my hands.
When I pulled them out of the box I found them wrapped in a microfibre cloth inside a plastic case,
and when I pulled them out and tried them on and instantly loved them. In fact, I’ve probably worn these glasses more in the week that I’ve had them, then I’ve worn my other glasses combined all year long. The larger frame really makes all the difference, and they processed my prescription perfectly. And I have to say, these glasses feel more comfortable on my face than my expensive glasses from the eye doctor – and these ones were $19.95. Lens included. Yup you read that correctly.
Whether you are updating your look, getting prescription sunglasses, getting a back-up pair (because nobody wants to have to pull a Hugh Grant in Notting Hill & wear a prescription scuba mask because they broke their glasses), or even getting a pair of trendy glasses that you may not wear all that often, GlassesShop.com makes it affordable and fun!
