I wear glasses every day. I have worn glasses every day for a decade. Letting that sink in, I realize how important it is for us four eyed individuals to have frames that we love, frames that suit our face shape and frames that are functional. Our frames are a part of our face, our identity, what we show to the world.
When I was contacted by GlassesUSA to do a review on prescription glasses I was excited and got right to it. I had too much fun on their site looking at the multitude of choices and uploading a picture and using the Virtual Mirror below to ‘try on’ all my favorite pairs.
I haven’t had many frames over the years, only four pairs actually as I get stuck on a look I love and don’t often change it up. The frames before my current tortoiseshells I wore for four years straight. So I was surprised that after receiving my new iSee 720 Purple lenses I tried them on and subsequently haven’t taken them off since! (Well, I did for sleep time and showers, you know what I mean).
These glasses are great, they are subtle with their hints of purple but also bold in a large size with cat eyes. I don’t think I would have choose them if all I had were photos to look at but with the virtual mirror I knew they were a good style for my face. And GlassesUSA also includes all size measurements so I knew they’d be a good fit. Easy as that. Luckily (for review purposes), before this magical pair I ordered a pair of prescription sunglasses which ended up being too tight on my temples. The 30 day return process was straightforward. I wasn’t able to call them, but that is my phone providers issue so they called me and refunded me quickly with no qualms and I was able to move on and select a pair that works better for me.
