I recently had the opportunity to review a new pair of prescription glasses from GlassesUSA.com. I am nearsighted and wear my glasses for driving and watching movies and tv, but not really around the house. I sometimes think if I had more “fun” styles of glasses, and more than one pair, I might wear them more often.
I took this offer to receive a pair of eyeglasses to review as a chance to get some I might not choose if they were my only pair. I went online to find my more “fun” glasses, and found there definitely were a lot to choose from.
I liked how I could narrow my choices by material (plastic, metal frames, etc.), and by frame shape, color, and so much more. It saved quite a bit of time as I made my selection.
For anyone who’s going to buy glasses, the biggest question is how they’re going to look on you–GlassesUSA has the answer to that question with their Virtual Mirror. You can “try on” any pair of eyeglasses you’re considering by taking a quick webcam photo or uploading a photo of yourself.
I did find a pair of glasses I liked, and despite using the measurements of my current frames, my first pair arrived and were too small! As I thought about why this might be I realized my current glasses have a bit of a “cat-eye” shape and the new glasses were much different. I think that’s something I should have accounted for.
I had to do an exchange, but my second pair of glasses arrived and were perfect. That’s something I do want to note–you can exchange your glasses if you’re not satisfied.
