Fantastic Firmoo Glasses
I've worn glasses since second grade, when my teacher finally mentioned to my mom that she had to move me to the front of the room so I could see the chalkboard. I remember feeling like that first pair was a magical gift - I could finally see!
As I've aged, my eyesight has gotten progressively worse, so in addition to my contacts, I always keep a few pairs of glasses nearby. In the past they've been ordered from Costco, mostly because it was easy.
From now on I'm purchasing all of my glasses from Firmoo.
Firmoo.com is a global online optical store, with a large selection of reasonably priced frames. The pair I chose was only $36, which included free single vision prescription lenses. Bifocals are available for an additional $22.95 more, and progressive lenses are an extra $36.95. Much more reasonable than Costco or any other retailer I've tried. Firmoo also carries reading, computer, and prescription sunglasses.
Ordering was a breeze. With their Virtual Try On System I was able to upload a picture of myself and try different glasses to see which looked best. I filled in my prescription, chose a size (also easily explained on the ordering page), and that was it.
I was thrilled with the glasses when they arrived, complete with a case and pouch, cleaning cloth and small screwdriver. They are well made and sturdy, and the prescription is perfect.
And can we talk about how pretty they are? Hot pink with a tortoiseshell frame - totally up my alley. They fit my face just right and are very comfortable.
The only downside was the shipping time. It took almost a month for the glasses to arrive. However, I spoke with their customer service representative, and she let me know that they were having trouble with their standard shipping company. To compensate, Firmoo is currently offering express shipping for only $6.95, so that problem should be solved.
Overall, my experience with Firmoo.com couldn't have been better. I plan to order a pair of computer glasses from them since I spend most of my day staring at a monitor. I give Firmoo a highly recommend!
