Yeah, I'm a nerd. I also happen to be pretty rough on my glasses, and my wallet. While I was looking for a new (affordable) pair, I was contacted by Firmoo to review their product.
*I received these glasses from Firmoo for review. As always, the opinions expressed are my own and reflect my personal experience with the product and the company.
Firmoo is an online glasses/sunglasses retailer which offers prescription and nonprescription options. I've always purchased glasses after finding the frames through my eye doctor, so I was a little skeptical ordering online with no opportunity to try them on. I'm picky about the fit and generally test a few frames before finding one that feels right. It did help that Firmoo has a virtual try on option, but I found their photos of clients wearing the frames more helpful to see what I might like best.
I ordered a prescription pair. They arrived quickly with a hard and soft case as well as a small glasses screwdriver and spare screw. For the price, I was expecting a little less quality than what I usually purchase. However, these are a pretty good pair! I have heard of individuals having problems with the shipping, as it is from overseas, but I had no such trouble. Not sold on the online shopping? Firmoo is currently offering a free pair to new customers, you just pay shipping.
Glasses are a great way to update or change your look for those who don't require them, but for those that do- finding an affordable option is important. (Especially if you're hard on your specs, or prone to loosing things!)
If you're still looking for a little way to treat yourself after the holidays, or have a new look for the new year, how about try a new look with a new pair of glasses?
