I have been wearing eyeglasses since I was5 years old. Myself and one other student were the only ones in grade primary that had to wear glasses – I will never forget that. It’s not easy being the only “different kid” I remember by first pair of glasses, they were brown and white and long octagons, I then had a pair of blue glasses, and don’t forget the big red glasses, oh and what about the gold glasses? I think in the last 25 years I must had up to 10 pairs of glasses.
I have a pretty bad prescription. Picture this, you know the reading chart at the eye doctor, if your prescription is -4, you are unable to read the big E with uncorrected eyes. Well, my eyes are -9. Yes, very bad, I have a few family members with similar or worse prescription glasses, so I am convinced that eye sight is definitely genetic.
When Glasses USA contacted me to ask if I would like to review a pair of their glasses, I thought, hey why not. It’s always fun to have a backup pair. I chose the “First Ladies”. I loved using the virtual mirror. I took a picture of myself by webcam and was able to put a number of different glasses on my face to see which ones fit the best. I had lots of fun picking all kinds of fun and wild glasses, just to see what they would look like. I finally decided that the First Ladies would be the most piratical and trendy without going overboard.
I was nervous about buying glasses online because it seems like such a specialty item, but when they arrived, they were perfect. My prescription was perfect and the glasses look just as good as they did on my virtual trial I didn’t even have to get them fitted or anything. These glasses are pretty much the same as the $500 glasses that I recently bought from a local store, but are one 10th the price.
I am very pleased with my new glasses, Glasses USA has made shopping for a new pair of glasses very easy and they are affordable.
