Spotlight on.... GlassesUSA.com



Everyone who wears eyeglasses know that buying a pair could be pretty expensive. I don't wear glasses that much except for in the evenings before I go to bed or if it's a lazy day and I don't feel like putting my contacts in. I wanted a pair of "cuter" glasses- a more fashionable pair because my current pair just isn't cutting it. But, they're good to have just in case a contact rips or my lazy butt forgets to order more contacts (I'm really bad at that). The lovely folks over at GlassesUSA contacted me and offered to send me a free pair and of course, I jumped on the opportunity.

The style that I'm wearing in the pic is called "Freedom", and I love them. Ordering prescription eyeglasses from the site is pretty easy- all you do is pick what style frame you want, put in your prescription info, and voila! Done and done. The prices that you see are for the frames AND the lense. Unless you want thin or polycarbonate lenses, you would have to pay extra. Not bad for a pair of glasses. Under $100, I can most definitely live with that. The only con about ordering the glasses online is that you can't try on the frames to see how they fit your face (duh!). But, if you're a pro at trying on different styles and you know what works for you, then you should've have a problem picking out a pair from the nice selection that GlassesUSA have to offer. I was hoping and praying that this style fit my face because a lot of glasses with this style frame don't fit right. They are either too tight or just look to small for the shape of my face (I have a big face, lol). I'm so happy that they fit and they look so cute on me- I think so at least, lol.


I got my glasses back in about a week and a half after ordering, and they were packaged neatly in a hard storage case along with a soft lense cloth. The glasses are very lightweight and comfortable, and I love the stylish eyeglass frames. Like I said before, buying eyeglasses can get pretty expensive, especially if you're on a tight budget. If you always wanted to get a stylish new pair of glasses without putting a dent in your wallet, then GlassesUSA may be for you.
