I’ve had the same old glasses for years, at least 10. I’m a contact wearer and insurance never paid for both and I’m sure there are a lot of people in the same boat as me! I need glasses at night when I take my contacts out. I am near sighted and cannot see anything if I have no corrective lenses. I decided it was time to retire my faithful glasses and buy something fun and exciting that actually fit and weren’t scratched!
I was given the opportunity to review a pair of glasses from EyeBuyDirect and I must admit I was skeptical. Most doctors will tell you not to buy glasses from a mail order service but of course they want to make money! By coincidence I got an eye infection before I ordered my pair of glasses and I mentioned to the doctor that I was going to order a pair. They were really concerned and even said someone brought a pair in they had mail ordered and the prescription was off by a marginal difference. I will always try something new once and besides, it could have been user error! EyeBuyDirect offers a wide range of high quality affordable eyeglasses. By selling eyeglasses online EyeBuyDirect is able to cut the costs considerably and offer prescription eyeglasses starting as low as $6.95 including basic Rx lenses.
I picked out a pair of pink glasses. Pink. I remember when I would have cringed at the thought of having glasses that had anything to do with the color pink. Now my affection for that color is astounding. I’m sure it has something to do with having a daughter and hoping she’s not a tomboy like me! It was very easy to input all of my prescription information and select the options that I wanted. The hardest part was actually picking out the pair I wanted. EyeBuyDirect has a nice feature where you can upload a picture of yourself so you can see what you would look like wearing each style.
I received my glasses in a little over a week from the date I placed my order. You can also opt for an email update stating what phase in processing your glasses are in. I was excited for once to take put my glasses on at night. I think they fit very well and look great. I can actually read a book without them slipping to my nose. I could tell the prescription was right after the first night of wearing them. I could see the same as if I had my contacts in and I didn’t get a headache when I was working on the computer. My husband actually needs a new pair of frames and I will definitely be ordering them from EyeBuyDirect.
