Glasses for Free? Can It Be?

Excuse the super cheesy title. Let's just run with it, shall we? 
Today I'm talking about glasses. I don't really wear mine much at all, but I do love a good, sturdy, comfortable pair for the times I do need them. And I'll ask that you please excuse my awkward "modeling". Not my favorite thing to do. But anyway...
A few weeks ago, I was contacted by Firmoo about working with them to review a pair of glasses. I thought, "That sounds fun, sure!" Now, to be honest, I had never heard of Firmoo....mostly because I've just always bought my glasses from my eye doctor. Firmoo is an online retailer that sells hundreds of pairs of glasses, for amazingly affordable prices. 

Their prices are SO affordable, in fact, that I questioned the quality of the product.(mine retail for $33!!) I have had these glasses for just over a week, and although I only really wear my glasses first thing in the morning and right before I go to bed, I can tell you that the quality of their glasses is as good, if not better, than that of a pair of glasses you'll pay hundreds of dollars for elsewhere. Actually, these are more comfortable and appear to be made better than the DKNY glasses I have that came from the eye doctor. 

I will admit, I was nervous about ordering a pair of glasses online. Unable to try them on and feel them in my hands, and I also worried about how accurate the prescription would be. Firmoo makes it so easy to order your perfect pair. They offer a virtual try-on system and you can easily upload a picture to see how they look on your face. This is what really helped me make my decision. I have a tortoise color pair already so I went with the classic black. They do have a little design on the sides, for a little pizzaz. Although these are just a tad bigger than I'd prefer, they're comfortable and fit great. I was able to type in my prescription from my contact boxes and voila!! Easy peasy!! Now, if you have an astigmatism, there are a few more numbers you'll have to input, but a quick call to your eye doctor can get your full prescription. No prob! You also need to measure your pupillary distance, which is the distance between your pupils. This was easy for me, but some people have 2 numbers. (I still don't quite understand how that works, but whatever.) The best thing to do is call your eye doctor and get your full prescription so you know it's correct. Go visit them for a quick exam if you haven't been in a while.

Overall, I am super happy with my choice and am very impressed with the quality, fit, and the accuracy of the prescription. My glasses came in a very nice case, complete with a nice cloth for cleaning them and a small screwdriver for adjusting. Mine didn't even need adjusting, but that's great to have for others that may need it. And with their prices, I will definitely use them for my next pair of glasses!

But there's one more awesome thing about Firmoo. Something I'm excited to tell you about. They have a First Pair Free Program, which means everyone gets their 1st pair of glasses for FREE!!! All you pay is shipping! Does is get much better than that? Not that I know of!
They offer prescription/nonprescription glasses, reading glasses, bifocal glasses, and even sunglasses! If you don't believe they have great prices, great quality, and a great online store, then don't take my word for it and go visit them yourself!! And get your free pair of glasses!! A little birdie (their website) also told me that they're having a Buy One Get One 1/2 off sale through Valentine's Day! 

So, what are you waiting for???
Check 'em out!


  1. I love your Chevron print top. So cute! And you look adorable in glasses!

    1. Aw thanks! I feel like a dork and that they look like huge goggles on me! HA! And thanks, that's one of my favorite tops! :)

  2. I usually get mine from my eye doctor. I never had tried purchasing it online as I was afraid that it will not satisfy the fit that I wanted. Just maybe in the future, I will try Frimoo for a change. :)


Thank you for reading and for taking the time to leave me a comment. I enjoy reading every single one of them!!
