Got Glasses? I Do. From Firmoo.com, Review & Giveaway: 5 Winners

Many, many things are changing as I approach the big 4-0, including my eyesight. I am ashamed to admit it, but my current glasses are 11 years old. See below. A little outdated. We went as a family last October to get our eyes checked and ALL of us were sent home with a new prescription. This meant four new pair of glasses and also contacts for my teen. We took care of everyone but yours truly. I was in denial. And the pocketbook was protesting big time.

11 year old glasses. Wire frames. Wore for driving, reading, computer work. 
I was contacted on July 24, 2014 (this timeline is very important), by Firmoo to review their glasses, service, and website. In exchange they would send me a pair of high quality and fashionable glasses or sunglasses "Firmoo.com is the world's most popular online eyeglasses store. Years of expertise in optical industry enable Firmoo.com to offer varieties of prescription eye wear to the consuming public in high quality yet at extremely affordable prices."

Remember above when I said someone was left out of getting her new glasses? Well, what did I have to lose? I went to their website, was able to log on with my Facebook account. Then I began to browse. I had never ordered glasses online before. Frankly, I don't even have a clue what anything on my glasses prescription means. The site walks you through. Easy. You can upload a picture of yourself (it's really supposed to be straight) and you can use their "try-on view". 

Here is mine:

On July 25, I placed my order for #CP6082. It wasn't hard to order. I did have to take my prescription to my eye doctor to get my PD (pupillary distance). I didn't want any mistakes on my own measurements. My glasses were ordered with the standard 1.5 index and anti-scratch. The company was supposed to upgrade the glasses per blog arrangement to 1.57, anti-radiation, and UV filters. I honestly don't know if this was done or not. It wasn't reflected in the invoice. My glasses arrived via mail on August 4, 2014. The package was sent internationally and was a little beat up. The glasses inside the hard case were perfect. My husband and kids absolutely love my selection. 

What do you think?

This experience was way easier than I imagined. I was leery at first. So far, I am very satisfied.
