Not too long ago, my husband and I were having a conversation about the need for new glasses and wanting to order some online after discovering just how much you could save when doing so. Imagine my reaction when Firmoo, a global optical online store, contacted me just a few days later wanting me to try and review their glasses. Of course I jumped at the chance!
I will first start out by saying I am thankful we now have insurance that covers vision, including glasses or contacts once a year. Only one though. So, if something happens to my glasses before the year is up then I will have to spend out of my pocket to replace them. If you’ve ever been into a retail store that sales prescription lenses, then you know how expensive it can be. Ordering online brings a LOT of savings!
Firmoo has both prescription and non-prescription (fashion) glasses and sunglasses. I needed another pair of prescription lenses, so that is what I chose. They have a really nifty virtual try-on, where you can either upload a recent picture of yourself or use your webcam and then you can virtually “try on” the glasses you are interested in. Since I wanted prescription lenses rather than just the fashion frames, I also had to have my prescription handy to enter into the forms. Firmoo offers you step by step instructions on how to choose your frames and lenses and the check out was super easy as well. You are also able to choose add-ons, such as anti-radiation and UV coatings. They seem to have all the latest fashions in frames, with hundreds to chose from. I also got a case, sleeve and repair kit included with my glasses, which I LOVE!
I’ve been wearing my new glasses for nearly two weeks now and the only complaint I have, and it’s a small one, is that my glasses slip down my nose just a tad when I look down. It’s not bad though. The prescription is correct and I love the way the frames look on me! Here are a couple of pictures of me wearing the glasses over the past two weeks:
Their First Pair Free program is now open as well. For first time customers, you can get one new pair of glasses for free per person on select frames. You just have to pay for lenses and shipping.
Firmoo is offering to giveaway a voucher code for $15.00 towards their Classic Series frames to 5 lucky readers! Enter below by February 27, 2015 to win! Good luck!
