I'm a four eyes. Contacts are my preference, but my optometrist says I need to spend a little more time in glasses. In fact, I just had my annual eye exam before Christmas and walked out the door with a promise to do so and a new eyeglasses prescription. Firmoo must read my mind, because soon after, they wrote asking if I would like to review a pair of their eyeglasses. Um...yes! That gives me a pair glasses with my updated prescription and a little extra money in my HSA. A win win situation!
Firmoo says it is "the world's most popular eyeglasses store". They offer their customers the best quality products for affordable prices. But the very best thing about Firmoo is that new customers gets to order their first pair of eyeglasses for FREE! All you do is pay the shipping, and for anyone who has bought glasses before, that is a steal!
I browsed their wide selection of glasses, starting at only 8 dollars! I've always wanted a black rimmed pair of hipster glasses, of which there are many to choose from. To try them on, you can choose a model who has a similar face shape as yours or upload a picture of yourself. After doing this, I decided to ordered this pair, in black. I ordered my new eyeglasses on January 6 and received them on January 14. Not too shabby considering the reviews I read on their website and Facebook page. I opened up the package to find a beautiful pair of glasses in a hard case, accompanied by a soft case, lens cloth, and eyeglasses repair kit. I didn't get those FREE extras at my local eyeglasses store! The extras are worth more than the cost of shipping, a win win for you too!
The quality of the eyeglasses was great, even excellent for what I was expecting. I'm going to be honest when I say that though I love the style I chose, it absolutely does not fit my face. WAY way to big. I look like the cute old man in the movie UP, only not cute. But I'm guessing he probably paid more for his eyeglasses! My husband said I looked more like Clark Griswold's Mom in Christmas Vacation. Should I be flattered?
I did find out that I could not return or exchange the glasses based on the criteria listed here, but I'm not crushed entirely. They are perfect for around the house. I appreciate the fact that they feel sturdy on my face and the prescription is spot on. However, please remember before you purchase anything online, be sure to look at their website for reviews and return/exchange policies.
