As you can probably guess from my blog’s header and button, I wear glasses. I’ve had glasses since I was in kindergarten (although, I did wear contacts all through high school), so I know a thing or two about buying glasses. This summer I actually went to the eye doctor and got a new prescription. So, I was really excited when Eye Buy Direct contacted me about doing a review and giveaway.
One issue I have when getting glasses is my wide face! Haha! Seriously, it limits what kind/type/style of frames I can get. The last 3 pairs of glasses have been black. However, that is almost always what looks best on me and actually fits properly. I have made the mistake before of ordering off of a website and having the frames not fit me right. Luckily, on Eye Buy Direct, there is the Eye Try which lets you virtually try on pairs of glasses on a picture of yourself! I thought that was really great! However, after much looking and thinking, I ended up getting my typical fall back pair of frames…
Oh, well, at least these actually fit my fat face/temples/head and don’t look too bad! Haha! I actually like the look of these glasses and was really pleased with the options for lenses when ordering glasses. You see, I have astigmatism and my prescription is really thick. However, thanks to the many options for thinning of lenses, my new glasses don’t make me look like a bug! Haha! Here is a side picture of my glasses to show you how good they look!
Oh, I almost forgot the even more wonderful thing about these glasses! I got the extra coatings (anti-reflective and anti-scratch), the thinning of the lenses, and frames for… under $100! How awesome is that? Eye Buy Direct is super budget/college student friendly! I am really impressed with the quality and options that Eye Buy Direct provides for such a low price! It’s seriously great! Now, for something really sweet for my readers…
