GlassesUSA Review

"Seeing properly shouldn’t be a luxury – it should be a necessity. 
We do our best to help our customers
and we take their vision needs very seriously by providing our customers with top quality lenses in the most fashionable frames available!" recently gave me the opportunity to shop their website where they offer high quality frames and lenses for some new prescription glasses and give them a review. After I agreed to do the review my first thought was "oh no, how am I going to try glasses on and make sure they look good on me?! I can't buy glasses online!" Well, GlassesUSA proved me wrong. When you land on their home page and browse the different ways to shop, the first thing you will come across is the virtual mirror feature. It was super easy to upload a photo of myself, which you can do either from a photo file or your webcam, and start trying on glasses. The virtual mirror broke their frame selections down by gender then by type and you can easily adjust each pair to line up with your picture and see how you look. Here I am trying on some red glasses:

This totally put my fears at ease and probably saved me a lot of time I would have spent running around to different local stores trying on glasses. Using the virtual mirror actually inspired me to make a bold choice for my new frames and go with something in a plastic color. I was able to try on several, pic my favorites, and then e-mail them to my husband at work so he could help me pick the final pair.  I really like their selections for men too, they have a lot of great designer eyeglasses and they have a section on the website to show their best sellers too. Here are some of my favorite pics for men in designer brands:

                             Besides the fun virtual mirror, some GlassesUSA also offers:

    • ●110% lowest price guarantee and a 100% satisfaction guarantee
    • ●A generous refer-a-friend program (You can get $30 for each first purchase a referred friend makes - and use the $30 towards your next pair of glasses)

Checkout was super easy, plus they usually have a coupon code offered on the homepage. I was able to save money by bundling my lens upgrades which I was really excited to see offered. I was able to get a Anti-Scratch Coating + UV Protective Coating + Premium Anti Reflective Coating package for a $15 discount (something that a leading brick-and-mortar store wanted to charge my husband over $100 for). I was also able to select how thick I wanted my lenses based upon recommendations for my prescription level and I was excited to see they offer transition lenses or tinting for eyewear to be used as sunglasses as well.

I might as well be seeing hieroglyphics when reading my RX form, but the website made it really easy to select my prescription information from drop down menus and input all the information right then and there at checkout. You can also fax or e-mail your prescription and they have a chat feature if you want an expert to talk you through entering your RX for prescription glasses. All said and done, checkout took me less than 5 minutes and my glasses arrived by courier in less than a week. I love my final pair! Could you believe I had to point out they were new to friends! They just thought I looked like my fabulous self, and I thought I was going out on a limb with colored frames! Check them out:

GlassesUSA is offering some great discounts to my readers. Check out these specials:
  • ● Take 20% off your entire order of $80 or more and get FREE US shipping with the code: FS20
  • ● Take 10% off any order. Code: Blog10
 I can hardly believe how much you can save by shopping for eye wear online! As a penny-pinching couponer I feel like I discovered a discount treasure in GlassesUSA. I won't be paying high retail prices in stores for glasses ever again, and if you are one of the 60% of adults wearing glasses, I hope you will try out GlassesUSA and stop overpaying too!
