I have been doing the rimless frame thing with my glasses for a while, and I have loved being able to see my face more, especially on stage. I have tried contacts, but since I have astigmatism, the weighted thing just doesn’t work for me.
When I went to Type A Mom Conference in September, I tried on someone’s really cool full-rimmed glasses, and felt really good in them! From that point on, I really wanted some “fashion-y” glasses to wear with certain outfits, or when I wanted to “funkify” my look a little!
That’s why I was thrilled when the folks at www.JustEyewear.com contacted me to see if I’d like to review their product. Honestly, I would have NEVER thought to order eyeglasses online. But since I had been wanting some fashion frames, I decided to give it a try!
I kind of knew the style I wanted to look at, since I had tried some one in passing at another store (Sometimes I just go to the eyeglass store in the mall and try a bunch on just for kicks. I know, I’m weird) But really, who can afford two pairs of glasses from an eye doctor? Once every three years is stretching it for me!
Just EyeWear has Prescription Eyeglasses frames starting at $29! That was the first thing that caught my eye. (Haha, I’m so “punny”) Of course ,you can upgrade with features like non-reflective coating and super thin lenses – which I need to avoid looking like Coke Bottles.
I started out by reading the Guide to Buying Glasses Online. It was reassuring to me how much information they give you, and the precision with which your can measure for your new glasses. Then, I read “How to Choose a Frame,” which takes into account face shape, coloring, and desired effects.
The most unfamiliar aspect of ordering glasses online, for me, was measuring the Pupilary Distance (the distance in millimeters between your pupils). You can ask your eye doctor for this measurement, but I measured mine myself, using this guide. I had my husband hold up a ruler, looking straight at my face and read the distance.
Then, I measured my existing glasses, so I could tell the approximate size I needed for my face. (Hint: write down the sizes next time you go on an impromptu glasses-trying spree in the expensive store)
So, what do you think about my new glasses? Do I look smarter?
I absolutely love them! And even with the extra features I got, they were still HALF of the price of my old glasses!! Have you ever ordered eyeglasses online?
