Yes, that was me for 3 years. The little girl with glasses who had no idea how to wear them or what looked good. I was the epitome of a dork in glasses. I would show you a picture but I would never live it down. Add to it a perm and I should be on one of those “what they looked like back then” shows. And I would be the winner. Then in 7th grade I got contacts. Hallelujah! I was saved and worked my way out of total dork status.
But my vision got worse and worse every year. It was terrible. Like I was legally blind terrible. That’s when I finally bit the bullet and had PRK about a year ago. PRK is a form of Lasik, but my corneas were too thin for traditional Lasik so they did the PRK procedure instead. Coming out of the surgery I was so excited to be able to see again….and I do, just not 100%. My vision was so bad and my corneas so thin, that they couldn’t get me to 20/20 vision.
Cue sad face. 🙁
I’m not quite 20/20 now, so I technically don’t need glasses, but I’ve noticed my night vision is horrible now and I could stand to see highway signs a bit clearer when I’m driving.
Enter Firmoo! When they reached out for me to review a pair of glasses I was a little nervous, but figured it was the perfect opportunity for some new specs. It had been years since I purchased new glasses, and looking at glasses online is a bit scary. I’m big on seeing things in person, so the thought of purchasing glasses online wasn’t 100% appealing to me, but Firmoo has a virtual viewer, where you can upload a photo of yourself and select a pair of glasses to see what they would look like on you.
I am lucky enough to have a very stylish, glasses wearing co-worker, so she helped me select this pair.
The one thing that is really appealing about Firmoo is their prices. Because of my previously high prescription, I was limited in my selection, and the glasses available to me were usually pretty expensive. I love that all of Firmoo’s frames are under $75, and most of them are under $40.
They came in a cute, stylish hard case right to my mailbox.
So yes, definitely happy with my glasses. Firmoo was quick in replying and getting my glasses shipped so I was happy with the service. Would I order glasses online again? Possibly. I think the quality is good for the value.
Question of the day: Have you ordered glasses online? Would you?
