I used to wear contacts all the time. I still do, but only special occasions. I hated wearing my glasses because they weren't cute and I hated having them sit on my face. However, as I get older I have a great appreciate for glasses. Especially because they are becoming more affordable and there are adorable styles out nowadays.
One resource that I recommend online is GlassesUSA.com. You probably noticed a few weeks ago, Bob and I had our annual eye exam. Bob has never owned a pair of glasses before and since he is a diabetic, it's extremely important that he has his eyes checked annually. However, when we purchased his glasses at the eye doctor, it cost us almost $150. Ouch.
I was extremely excited to discover GlassesUSA. It provided a budget friendly solution to buying eyeglasses. When you first visit their website, you are immediately offered a discount off of your first pair of eyeglasses, as well as free shipping.
This is NOT a bad deal. Most vision insurance is a more or less a "discount" towards eyeglasses frames. Generally, the discount isn't much and GlassesUSA is constantly offering new promo's to take money off of your frames. You can also earn money to use towards your eyeglasses by referring friends. Not too shabby!
GlassesUSA offers high quality frames and lenses, boasting a 100% satisfaction guarantee. For your (and my) conveince they have a Twitter feed: @GlassesUSA and a Facebook page, which allows us eyeglass wearers the ability to stay up-to-date on all GlassesUSA happenings. Just one of the many perks of ordering your prescription glasses online.
A qualm I had about purchasing glasses online was not being able to try on the glasses first. I like to make sure that the glasses look good on me. A helpful tool the GlassesUSA.com offers is the Try-It! Virtual Mirror.
Here are some styles I "tried" on:
There's TONS of cute styles to look at and compare. I highly recommend trying out the virtual mirror and picking out some awesome, high quality eyeglasses frames!!
