As I’ve written before, I’m blinder than a bat without my glasses. I used to wear contacts but tired eyes and the expense of them started to grow old on me.
I like to change up my glasses yearly, because the hipster in me can’t get enough plastic rimmed, bold styled, chunky glasses. ALSO, I’d like to point out I owned them before it was cool. Like 5 years ago. Beat that hipsters.
Anyways, I always bought from Clearly, but then I heard about Firmoo. Firmoo’s prices literally could not be beat. Who has heard of $19, full prescription glasses? Not I.
Insurance covers glasses maybe every two years. Having an addiction to glasses can be (and is) costly. So, for someone who changes glasses as often as I change underwear (that is a joke, btw), $19 glasses are heaven.
The selection isn’t as vast as Clearly, which is cool cause they’ve got some solid ones. I chose these blue ones ’cause they reminded me of the see-through blue telephone I begged my mom to purchase me at 12 so I could have my “own phone” (like Lizzie McGuire).
Ordering was easy peasy, PayPal is accepted which is amazing. The glasses come from China so I was definitely expecting 2-3 weeks for them to arrive. WRONG. I got them in less than 7 days. BONUS. They arrived via UPS in a bubble wrapped envelope.. Which is more than Clearly does.
You get a half decent hard case, a soft case, a tightening tool and a cloth. All standard items with glasses, and I never actually end up using them (except the cloth, my mom doesn’t understand how I can possibly see with the dirt accumulated on my glasses).
At only $19 and coming directly from China, my hopes for quality weren’t too high. I was pleasantly surprised at the durability and strength of the plastic. The arms seem a bit flimsy compared to the main spectacles, but overall I’m really pleased. They also look exactly like the photo, and I look ballin’.
