New Glasses Rock!

Sometimes getting my mail is no fun. Especially when it's filled with bills and applications for credit cards that I don't even want. It's like, hello Discovery if I've turned you down for five years, what makes you think I'm going to suddenly change my mind? Anyhow, yesterday I actually had good mail! I got a pair of eyeglasses from GlassesUSA! I was contacted to review a pair of glasses and I was thrilled to see that they had arrived.

GlassesUSA has tons of prescription eyeglasses to choose from for men and women. They have full frames, semi-rimless frames, rimless eyeglasses, classic frames, and progressive lenses. I was told I could pick a pair and there were so many I liked. Plus, you have to understand that I have a strong eye prescription so I was impressed that GlassesUSA was easily able to accomodate that. Sometimes I go into a glasses store and am told I can't have certain frames due to my prescription. It stinks, let me tell you.

(Here are some other frames I liked:



)

In the end I choose these pair of eyeglass frames:



You can't go wrong with pink after all! The ironic thing is, when I was little I hated the color pink. I swore I'd never wear it. And now look at me! Pink everywhere. Pink splashed all over my daughter. It's like a flamingo threw up in her closet or something.

But back to the glasses. For starters, I was impressed on how they were packaged.



I hate when things arrive in a huge package when it's just a tiny item. I liked how the package from GlassesUSA was nice and compact.



Still nicely wrapped....



My glasses came with a case and a cloth--this comes in handy when you have grabby two-year-olds who like to rip your glasses off of your face. Farewell, fingerprints!

Another good thing about GlassesUSA? They donate all of their returned glasses to all sorts of organizations so that people who can't afford vision care can get some glasses.

If you'd like a pair of glasses from GlassesUSA you can use the code Mommy5 and save 5%. This never expires.

Of course I had to try the glasses on. I wore them out to Wal-Mart and got complimented by the guy standing in line behind me. Granted, at first he said, "Are those real diamonds?" Um, hello, if they were I probably wouldn't be in Wal-Mart. Actually, I probably still would. Even if I struck it rich I'd still be a bargain hunter I imagine. But anyhow, I told the guy that no, sorry, they weren't real. He nodded and went, "They look nice." And yes, he might have been wearing a t-shirt with the words LEGEND written across the front in big yellow letters with a giant arrow underneath that pointing to his crotch. But still. Dude from Wal-Mart complimented me.





So thank you GlassesUSA for giving me the chance to review your glasses. I'll definately pass on the website to all my friends and family.

  13. I just ordered some new glasses from an online company that is probably similar to GlassesUSA. I can't wait to get them. And I really hope they look good. It's a little nerve racking ordering them WITHOUT trying them on first
