I Can See Again

I have had glasses since I was in the third grade and could no longer see the chalkboard. I still use my glasses for driving and to watch television. When it comes to picking out new glasses, they have to be good quality and a great price. I would never think of buying my eyeglasses online, but GlassesUSA gave me the chance to try them out and see just what buying glasses online was all about.

GlassesUSA.com offers a great solution for buying glasses. They have a wide variety of eyeglass frames starting from just $18!
All of their lenses not only exceed FDA requirements but they pass their “5-stripe” process prior to shipment. If they do not meet these standards – they are not shipped.

I have to admit, I was nervous getting glasses online, after all isn't that something you need to see in person and on yourself to buy?
I was encouraged by their 30-day return policy, if you are unsatisfied with your glasses, they will be happy to exchange your frames with another pair of equal value or refund your order. Whew.
It is easy to sort through the eyeglass frames, you can shop by price, category, material, lens type or gender. GlassesUSA also has a Vision Guide on their website that helps you make your choice. They have an article on how to choose frames to flatter your style and how to choose prescription eyeglasses that fit your facial shape.
I had heavy, think frames before so i wanted a change. I went with the Vegas glasses for that Sarah Palin look. It took a couple of weeks for my glasses to arrive, but when they did I wasn't disappointed.
They fit my face, the complimented my face shape and were very nice. It took awhile to get used to the rimless, light glasses but after a few days I was good.

All in all it was a good experience, I think the only downside to buying glasses online is the wait time to get them, but if you are looking for a second set, or a new pair and you don't need to rush, buying online is right for you.
I have suggested this site to my mother who is always buying a pair of glasses or sunglasses for herself and I would recommend them to you too!


  1. So you need to post a picture, because I'm pretty certain you ROCK those glasses better than Sarah Palin.

    And I will totally check them out next time I need some glasses. Which, with a 2 year old, could happen sooner than later...

  2. Sounds interesting . . . I've used Goggles4U before with success, too.
