As many of you may or may not know, I’m as blind as a bat...hehe! I have worn contacts for years now, but was in desperate need of a new pair of eyeglasses. I always have the worst time picking out glasses and frames that I feel fit my face and personality.  When it comes time to buy glasses most of the time I dread going to the eye doctor and almost always end up leaving empty handed because I couldn't decide on a pair I liked. Luckily, I was recently contacted by to do a review of a pair of prescription glasses. I was gifted a $100 e-certificate to spend on a pair of glasses of my liking.

I admit I was completely stoked to do this review. I couldn’t wait to go on the site and pick out a pair of frames however, I was still a little apprehensive because I’m never able to find a pair that I love and the whole experience is always a bit overwhelming. Once on the site, my mind was put to ease, there were so many that I absolutely loved.

My glasses arrived in a cute case with a cleaning cloth :)
What I loved most about the site was: 
  • Great Prices. The prices are hugely affordable without lacking style. 
  • Navigation was easy. You can narrow your search by color, size, style and price. You can even search a specific name or brand. That made it easy finding the perfect pair.
  • Customization. You can customize the glasses just as you would normally with tint, anti-glare and other upgrades to your lenses.
  • Virtual Mirror.  The virtual mirror allows you to upload a picture and virtually try the glasses on…sweet! I had a lot of fun with this and had my facebook fans help me chose the best pair using the my choices from the virtual mirror. 
 Now came the hard part of deciding which frame to go with.
  • virtual mirror glasses usaOne thing I learned about the site though, is things move rather quickly so if you see a pair of glasses you love snatch them up because they'll probably sell out fast. All of my favorites sold out before I could tally up the votes! I really really loved pair D which I'm hoping they restock.  I really can't say anything negative about my experience with GlassesUSA! Which is always a plus for me! I'm completely satisfied with my specs!

  17. I'm blind as two bats so we definitely are sisters. I just ordered new specs about 2 weeks ago in person. Awaiting the arrival. Maybe I'll share a post. I like the frames you ordered more than D. Either way you'll rock them with confidence.

  18. I would have voted for D but it sounds like they're no longer an option.
