GlassesShop Review

One of my biggest pet peeves is the amount of money I have to dish out whenever I have to visit the eye doctor.  Not only do I have to pay the exam fee, with my family history of blindness and macular degeneration, I have to have a handful of special eye tests as well. Of course, with my ever-changing eyesight, I need new glasses every two years. I have never managed to spend less than $250 on my frames and lenses. It's beyond frustrating.

I've been hearing lots of hype about some websites where I can actually purchase cheap glasses. I'm not just talking about your run of the mill prescription eyeglasses. You can actually order bifocals and progressive lenses too. (Yes, yes, I know. Not everyone needs such complicated lenses.  Even so, I do, and knowing I can order them online and save a ton of money is a huge bonus for me!)

With all of the options in cyberland, I chose to order from GlassesShop. GlassesShop has a ton of discounted frames from which to choose. The website is easy to navigate and offers sorting options where you can enter color, shape, and price to narrow the selections for you.

When I ordered my prescription eyeglasses, I knew I wanted to choose a pair that were completely different than the little rectangle frames I was currently wearing.  I opted for a bigger. bolder frames.  I hesitated making the change at first, but GlassesShop has a Try On feature where I was able to upload my picture and try different frames to get an idea of how they would look on my face. Cool, right?

The frame I chose is Virgo Wayfarer, a pretty tortoise frame with elegant ornaments in the temples. They have a spring hinge as well. I love the bigger frame, and the sparkly detail on the temples is so feminine.

The frame choices on GlassesShop are fashion-forward and very affordable. Purchasing prescription eyeglasses and prescription sunglasses is as simple as choosing the frame and entering your prescription. Once ordered, shipping was quite fast.  My glasses arrived in a hard plastic case with a lens cleaning cloth. The quality of my frames is the same as ones I have purchased from the costly eye doctor's office.

I am very satisfied with my experience and will absolutely order from GlassesShop again in the future.
