I have worn eye glasses since I was in third grade. I remember how excited I was when I got my first pair. All of a sudden I could see things clearly and I have never wanted to take them off again. For a few years I had opted to go with contact lenses, but they just weren’t as comfortable as my glasses. So every year the “Great Glasses Search” begins.
“Great Eye Glasses” is an online site that sells eye glasses for Men, Women and Children. I have considered buying glasses online in the past but I was always to scared to make the jump. Glasses have always been an investment for me and I am often torn between choose style and comfort or price. “Great Eye Glasses” has taken that choice away…now I can choose stylish and comfortable glasses at prices I can afford!
The website is super simple to use. You can search by Category, Material, Frame Shape, Frame Style, Lens Type and colour. Your results show up in the right hand side of the screen and you can see a pictures of the frames as well as a brief summary of each pair.
Found the frame you like? Simply click on the name and you are taken to the order page which contains a full description of the frame. This page has the option to “Try On” your frame. You can upload your picture and see how they will look on you. Not being able to try on a pair of frames was one of the things that prevented me from ordering online in the past. This feature is wonderful. I was able to test out styles that normally I wouldn’t even consider for fear of looking silly. I love that I can take my time trying on styles and coming back to a favourite pair over and over again.
Ordering your new glasses is easy…and a little scary at first. Don’t let that fear stop you. “Great Eye Glasses” provides you with everything you need to know when ordering your glasses. They have instructions to help you choose your correct frame size and find your PD (Pupillary Distance) and how to read your prescription. I walked through the steps and then made the leap and entered in my information.
The prices are fantastic. I can’t compare the price to my other pair of glasses as I have different options, but my glasses from “Great Eye Glasses” are exactly what I wanted at a significantly lower price. I love that I was able to take my time and choose the exact features that I wanted. No pressure to choose one option over another. You can choose your lens type and coatings as well as tints and sun darkening options.
The hardest part of the whole process is finding enough patience to wait for your new glasses to arrive! My new glasses arrive quickly and I absolutely love them. Check out my new glasses!
