I made it super clear with them that I was going to be really honest about my experience with GlassesUSA so let's get talking!
So I decided it was high time I get myself some dang glasses. I'm usually a contact only girl and it had been forever since I'd had eyeglasses because they are typically super expensive with my high prescription but when I was contacted by GlassesUSA I figured I'd give it a go!
Picking out the glasses was actually really easy. They have this shnazy virtual mirror feature where you can upload a photo of yourself and see what the glasses would look like on your face shape which was awesome because shopping online for something like glasses can be hard when you don't know what they'll look like on but the virtual try on is actually a pretty good representation of how the size and shape will look like on your face.
Here's the tool below if you want to give it a whirly whirl.
Buying the eyeglasses online was easy too, I just uploaded my prescription information, chose my lenses and checked out. I was actually surprised by how cheap the glasses were at check out. They're competitive with Warby Parker prices (especially because they're always running different promo codes) but I actually liked the quality of my glasses better than Warby Parker (I had some sent to my house to try on a long time ago but ended up not ordering any because they felt like they would break WAY easy, has anyone else noticed that or is it just me??), anyways for being discount glasses they have a great quality.
The glasses then were delivered to me in about a week! Here's where the trouble came in though, when I received the glasses that I picked out which were originally a different pair, I ordered them with the thinnest lenses possible because of my high prescription and figured they wouldn't look thick. But once they arrived the lenses looked coke bottle thick, I'm talking grandma style in the worst way possible. I was super bummed, I'd ordered the thinnest lenses possible and they still looked huge. So I contacted a sales rep, told them my story and they actually explained that certain glasses styles go better with certain prescriptions and I had chosen possibly the worst style of frames to go with my prescription.
So they let me send back my frames that were too thick and pick out this new style. Even though it took longer than I would have liked and took two tries to get the right pair I was really impressed by how committed the customer service was to getting me a pair that would work for me at no extra cost. It's great to know you aren't buying from a company that will leave you high and dry if something goes wrong.
Wow, this is way too long for glasses ammmiright. Anyways, glasses, love them, wear them all the time,moral of the story, buy glasses online. They are cheap eyeglasses compared to the price you would pay when going to a store. But definitely pick out your frames carefully and if you have any questions about what style of glasses works best with your prescription then call customer service. They were super helpful!
