Glasses USA Review

I would be lost without my glasses; that I know to be true. Without a pair of glasses to sharpen the world for me every day, I would probably be lying at the bottom of a stair well covered in bruises. You see, I am extremely short-sighted, and can't see anything clearly without prescription lenses. I can't make out words, or people's facial features, or even my own hand in front of my face. So, I rely on a pair of specs to help me see the world clearly, so I can function normally every day.

I've been a glasses wearer since I was just a baby of eighteen months, and growing up in the eighties and nineties, the glasses I wore were far from stylish. Back then, enormous round-framed metal and plastic glasses were the height of sophistication, and my lenses were about an inch thick! As you can imagine, they were particularly fetching spectacles... ahem.

A rare photo of me wearing my glasses; taken yesterday.  These glasses are by Roxy.

Fortunately, eye wear fashions have improved dramatically since the nineties, but in turn, shopping for glasses has become so expensive, as I'm sure the glasses wearers among you will agree. I can easily spend a couple of hundred pounds on just one pair of prescription glasses!

However, glasses shopping really doesn't have to be so expensive!

I recently heard about a company called GlassesUSA.com, and when the opportunity to review their website arose, I was more than happy to oblige.

GlassesUSA.com is a company who sell high quality eyeglasses online, at affordable discount prices. They sell classic and vintage frames, and also a large selection of designer glasses from many big name brands such as Armani, Calvin Klein, and Guess, with something to suit every taste and budget.

They stock a huge variety of designs, in all shapes and sizes you could ever dream of, and they cater to various vision needs. Besides presciption glasses, you can also find prescription sun glasses and reading glasses, and they also offer multi-focal lenses as well as single vision lenses. In short, they have all your glasses needs covered.

I've never bought glasses online before, mainly because I find it tricky to find frames which suit my face shape, so I prefer to try them on for size. Luckily, the clever people over at Glasses USA have that problem covered with their ingenious Virtual Mirror.

The Virtual Mirror is a fantastic feature which allows you to 'try on' any of the glasses on the website. It's very simple to use. All you need to do to get started is select your gender, and upload a photo. Once your photograph has been uploaded, you can adjust the scale, and then you're ready to try some glasses on!

The Virtual Mirror splits the huge selection of glasses available in to four main categories; plastic, metal, rimless, and semi-rimless. I personally favour plastic frames, so I explored this option, and tried on many different frames, which I found was so easy to do. It even enables you to compare your favourites, which would be helpful for narrowing down which frame(s) to purchase.

It's also possible to search and shop for glasses on their website without The Virtual Mirror, but still with the option of uploading your photograph to try the glasses on throughout each category. In all honesty, I preferred this option, as each product photo was replaced with my photograph modelling each pair of glasses in my search (example below), which I found was easier for finding glasses that suited me quickly.

I discovered that Glasses USA have an extensive selection of eyeglasses to choose from. There are hundreds, if not thousands of beautiful frames available in a wide range of colours, styles, and designs. I was actually surprised by how many frames there were to choose from! I found so many pairs I adored, which I rarely seem to manage in my usual opticians.

The pricing is also absolutely fantastic with frames (including lenses!) starting from about $38, which is roughly £24!

And if that wasn't good enough, they also offer world wide delivery, and the kind people at GlassesUSA have given me a couple of generous discount codes to share with you!

They're offering you 15% off (orders over $50) plus free shipping by entering code: FS15 at the checkout.

 And you can get 10% off any order of prescription glasses using code Blog10.

I can't think of a better time or excuse to buy glasses online!

I will certainly be saving up for a couple of pairs I have my eye on. I'm impressed with GlassesUSA, and I'm sure you will be, too!

What are you waiting for? Why not pop on over to GlassesUSA to see for yourselves.
