GlassesUSA.com - A Great Way to Go

     So let me tell you all a little about something.  My kids hate me.  I say this because it must be so.  Everything of mine gets ruined very quickly.  It doesn't matter if it is a Dollar Tree pair of tweezers or a $40 jacket.  If my kids see it and it belongs to me, it is instantly a target.
     A couple years ago, I got an eye test done because my vision was a bit fuzzy around the edges.  I could see fine for most general purposes, but sometimes I would have trouble reading the street signs until I was right up on them.  Turns out that my eyes, though bothersome, were not bad.  I had been given a small prescription and sent on my way.
     I mistakenly thought my insurance would cover the cost of glasses.  I mean, I drive my kids around and make my income on the computer, glasses are a very important part of day to day life.  But I was wrong.  Turns out that I would have to buy glasses at the whopping cost of $85 for THE CHEAPEST pair in the eye care center.  It took me a year to come up with enough money to get a pair.  So imagine my resentment when they were broken after about two months of having them.
     So I went looking around online for affordable replacements because I knew online would be better this time around to save both time and money.  One of the very first stops in my travels was GlassesUSA.com.  The first thing I noticed was how easy the site is to navigate.  The categories are right there as soon as the page loads: Men's, Women's, Multifocal and RX.  When you click on your category, a pop-down menu gives you more options.  You can choose to browse either by frame type, shape, size, style, material or lens type.
     I look best in rectangular frames, so I looked to see what they had.  And of course, to cut time, I also sorted results by price.  And right away, I saw these:
     They look almost identical to the prescription glasses I just lost.  Score!  And they are $46 cheaper than the cheapest pair at my local eye center.  That's less than half!  Are all the glasses on GlassesUSA that inexpensive?  Of course not, you have your more expensive glasses just like any other place, BUT the point is that you have the choice.  Pay $85 out of pocket for a pair at the office or $38 for this pair, that was MY choice to make and I sure do love choices.
     And in case you aren't sure what looks best on you, they have a Virtual Mirror feature so you can see on your own face how they will look.  I decided to try on the Sherrie eyeglasses from above.  And although I can see perfectly well that the photo of myself is a bad one, I can also see that the glasses are a great fit :)  And if you are brave enough, you can share that virtual image photo to get opinions from others about what fit might be best for you.  Why don't you try it out for yourself:
     If you have been thinking that you might like to order glasses, I would suggest you do it now while they have a Father's Day buy one get one promotion.  Just use the code FATHERSBOGO to get a second pair for free!
Other great coupons are:
Take 15% off + get free shipping on your entire order (orders over $50).   Code: FS15
Take 10% off any order of prescription glasses. Code: Blog10
     There are more deals under their coupon section.  They also offer 110% lowest price guarantee, 100% satisfaction guarantee and a generous refer-a-friend program.  You can also check them out on Facebook and Twitter.  They are definitely worth looking into if you need a pair.  Do you wear glasses?  Where do you get them?

I wear prescription eye glasses, so do they just send the frame and I can get the lens from the eye doctor or do they provide both? thanks for the review, sounds really intriguing.

They provide both. You can order your prescription eye glasses right through the site. Mine came out prefect and I can see great :)
