I have worn glasses since I was 16. I remember the first day I wore them to school. Wow, what a difference it made. Everything was clear! Even things I didn’t want to see. Over the years, I’ve switched to contacts, worn colored contacts, and owned glasses in many different colors.
I was recently contacted by Glasses USA. They offered to send me a pair of glasses to review and share my opinion with my readers. This came right on time because I’ve been needing a new pair of glasses for a while now. Honestly, I think the last time I changed my glasses was in 2012. Yikes! You know moms – we never put ourselves first.
So, what did I think? Here are five things I think you should know when you buy glasses online.

2. Shopping Experience
How was my shopping experience? It’s simple.
1. Choose a Frame
Choose from the over 2000 frames in stock. The user-friendly navigation helps you narrow down your search so you find exactly what you’re looking for.
After getting my pupiliar distance from my optometrist’s office, I was able to narrow my selection to frames that would work for my eyes. I “tried on” several pair, then selected about three favorites – Sam, Academy, and Muse.
2. Pick Your Lens Type
Once you have your frame selected, pick the lens you need. There’s a lens solution for every type of prescription.
3. Enter Your Prescription
Simply fill out your details and prescription using the easy-to-use online form. You can also upload, email or fax it.
I couldn’t find my copy of my prescription for glasses from my last exam, so I had to go pick up another copy from my optometrist’s office. Then, I easily entered my prescription details.
4. Fast & Free Shipping
For Single Vision- Regular Rx, the glasses are produced within 3 business days. You should receive them within 7-10 business days. If you’re not happy with your order, you can always send it back.

5. 24/7 Tracking
You’ll be in the loop every step of the way. I received an email with my tracking information to keep an eye on my order.
3. Wide Selection

4. Affordable Prices
Your first order is 50% off. There’s a Veterans Day Clearance, with glasses starting at $38. There are also coupon codes available on their site offering $25, $50, or $100 off, depending on the price.
5. Virtual Mirror
My first question while shopping was “how do I know what these glasses will look like on me?” They’ve got that covered. You can upload your head shot and virtually try on each pair. This was amazing!
The Virtual Mirror lets you try on any pair from the comfort of your home and shows you how the frames will accurately look on your face.
The Sam is a sophisticated frame, for the all-around woman. Crafted from premium acetate, it sports sleek arms for a snug fit. Coming in a rich array of colors, either, deep burgundy or rich tortoise, makes this frame a thing of beauty.
The frames came in a cute case. It also came with a soft cloth for cleaning your lenses without scratching them.
Now, go buy some glasses and see for yourself! Come back and let me know what you think.
