Prescription glasses can be very expensive. Before I started buying mine online they were around $500, which was more than my weeks pay. Not easily affordable. Then I discovered online and for the past few years have bought glasses from 2 different sites. Last month I found out you can get FREE glasses online through Firmoo.
They contacted me to see if I would be interested in reviewing them. They have a deal on their site, where any blogger who wants to can review their glasses and get a pair for free. Admittedly I usually charge a whole lot more for a sponsored post, but I wanted to test this out, because it is available to all bloggers and could help a lot of people.
So I picked the glasses I wanted and would you believe the very next day my glasses got massive scratches on them, so I would have needed to replace them anyway.
Here are my new glasses which I love so much more than my old ones
My last pair were slightly too big for my head and would sometimes slide off if I lent forward. I also was not a fan of the thicker frames, despite everyone telling me to get a pair. I much prefer thinner, metal frames like these and am partial to blue or purple.
I feel so much more confident in these glasses than I did in my old ones. I know it sounds stupid, but I do.
I have bought 4 pairs of glasses online so far and these came the fastest. Firmoo customer service was brilliant and I loved that I could track my glasses once they were shipped.
Considering how expensive glasses are in store, I am glad there is a cheaper alternative. I can't imagine how much my parents must have spent with 3 family members in glasses and needing specialist appointments.
So have you or do you buy prescription glasses online?
Yeah, I got my glasses free, but if you are blogger you can too. I wanted to test it out because I think it's a great idea and since I love my glasses and am happy with Firmoo, I am 100% confident in recommending them.
