I remember when one of my co-workers needed reading glasses, she went to the local drugstore and picked up a bunch of glasses for a few bucks each so she could wear different reading glasses based on her outfit. (She liked to coordinate like that.) Traditionally, prescription glasses aren’t that flexible. You usually have to choose one frame that will last you for the entire year, will cost a few hundred dollars, and has to match with every outfit you own. Quite a tall order. I recently discovered an alternative to this optical fashion dilemma – EyeBuyDirect.com.
If you’re looking for affordable and stylish prescription glasses – EyeBuyDirect.com is the place to go. They have glasses in a variety of styles, shapes and colors, ranging from $6.95 to $49.95. Yes – $6.95 for prescription glasses.
I visited EyeBuyDirect.com and began a search for a new pair of glasses. The website makes finding glasses incredibly easy. You can sort by gender, price, frame style, shape, material, and a few other options. I had a general idea of what I was looking for, so I started searching for plastic frames that were rectangular in shape. Once you find the frames that you like, you can then view the specs for those frames such as the height and width of the frame, width of the nose piece and the length of the arms. You definitely want to look at those measurements to make sure the frame fits your face.
I narrowed it down to a few different styles, and then the real fun kicked in. EyeBuyDirect.com has an EyeTry application that allows you to upload your photo and “try on” the glasses to get an idea of how you would look. The glasses I ultimately went with was the Luninets frame. You can see my avatar “trying on” the glasses. 🙂
Once you find the frames that you like, you begin the ordering process. EyeBuyDirect.com collects the same information that is needed to make your prescription eyeglasses – such as prescription, pupillary distance, etc. – and even offers the different lens thicknesses for those with higher prescriptions. You can also opt for other lens upgrades such as anti-glare, UV coating, and light-adjusting lenses. In addition, all of their glasses include free anti-scratch coating, a free protective case, and a free cleaning cloth.
I placed my order and my brand new pair of glasses from EyeBuyDirect.com were sent right to my mailbox. They are GREAT! They fit me perfectly and were just as they were described and advertised on the website. Not to mention, they are WAY more affordable than other glasses I’ve gotten in the past.
If you need another pair of glasses or just want another style of glasses that you can switch to every once in a while, now is a great time to check out EyeBuyDirect.com. They’re offering 15% off for new customers, which means you can get a new pair of glasses for as little as ~$5.91. Shipping is a flat $5.95 for standard shipping which brings the total to just under $12.00 for a new pair of glasses. If your order is over $99, then shipping is free.You can also check out their coupons page to make sure you’re taking advantage of their discounts.
With so many stylish and affordable frames to choose from, EyeBuyDirect.com is a great alternative for purchasing new glasses. By the way, if you need sunglasses, they have those as well – both prescription and non-prescription.
