A few weeks ago I was sent an email asking if I’d be interested in reviewing eyeglasses.
Dear God in Heaven, YES, where do I sign and which child do I send for payment?
Thankfully, I didn’t have to give any children. But I did a pair of eyeglasses WITH my prescription in them.
I went online and was surprised that there were a lot of styles to pick from. They even had sunglasses available. Everything from thin, cat-eye frames to thick, hipster ones. I’ve tried on glasses before and know which style I like, so I didn’t have a hard time picking out frames for my face. But Firmoo.com does offer a virtual try-on program, so you get what you like.
Once I had my frames picked out, I called my eye doctor and got a copy of my prescription. And 10 minutes later, I had ordered my glasses. So fast and easy.
It took about 2 weeks for them to arrive. But they came in this cute little case, which included a soft case, wiping cloth and a little repair tool keychain. Yeah. It’s on a keychain. You won major points for that one, Firmoo.
So I’ll be honest. I wore them for a total of 20 minutes and had to take them. I immediately got a headache from them. I was so bummed, because I really need glasses. I decided to take them into my eye doctor, to see if they had any suggestions for me. I’m so glad I did, because she adjusted them and I’m literally a whole new person.
No, seriously, guys. I look like a whole new person with glasses on.
Turns out, they just needed to be adjusted to my face and “flattened” out a bit.
Now, you may be the type of person who spends hundreds of dollars on eyeglasses, specially formed to your face, rimmed with gold and blessed by Jesus.
I am not that person.
I am the person who sits on their glasses. Who loses their glasses on a ferry. Who sees a spider in their car and accidentally throws their glasses out the window.
So the fact that the glasses I picked out were only $19.00…this is the perfect match for me. I can lose a pair. I can order a pair to match an outfit. It’s not gonna force me to take out a 2nd mortgage on our house.
So. Would I order again? Yes. Should you order a pair? Yes. Will we look like this?
