I have been enjoying my new pair of prescription eyeglasses from EyeBuyDirect. They have a wide selection of high quality eyeglasses, from designer sunglasses to rimless frames and reading glasses, all at affordable prices. I can tell you that I was hesitant at first about ordering glasses sight unseen online, because glasses are just traditionally one of those things I want to try before I buy. EyeBuyDirect makes this possible with their special interactive demo called “Eye Try” to help you choose the perfect pair of glasses because you can actually “see” what the glasses look like on you before you buy them. You upload a face forward picture of yourself, and play with the size, color and shape of your prescription glasses. The site also features tips to choose what shapes and colors look best on certain types of faces and skin colors.
After looking at lots of choices online, I decided to enlist the Little Write Gal’s help for a second opinion. Her first choice was the pair that I ordered, the Carmen Bronze, pictured below.
Here is a picture of me wearing the Carmen Bronze, using the “Eye Try” feature which I saw before ordering my glasses:
Here is a picture of me wearing my new glasses, which was taken after I received them in the mail. I love them!
One thing that impressed me about my EyeBuyDirect glasses was the quality. I actually like my new pair better than my old pair which I bought at my optometrist’s office. My old pair was almost $500 (total) and this pair was less than $100 including my lenses. You would never know they were so inexpensive because the quality and style are superb! This information is from the EyeBuyDirect Web site:
