I’m vain. No one likes to admit that they are getting older, but I guess sometimes the proof is irrefutable. Case in point is a shopping trip this week with my youngest daughter. For a while now I’ve recognized that I don’t see distance as well as I used to. Just part of passing the big 4-0 and a minor inconvenience… or so I thought. But this weekend my daughter told me in no uncertain terms that my close vision was – how shall I delicately put it? GONE.
The episode occurred while I was trying valiantly to read the ingredients on some beauty products in the store. Holding the tube far away didn’t help. Holding it close to my face (really, really close) didn’t help. Even I had to admit, it was time for glasses.
Not having worn glasses (but having two children who do) my first thought was the terrific selection at the optometrist’s office, having purchased several pairs of glasses frames for each of the kids this way. But, I didn’t want the salesclerk to get fidgety while I tried on 10 or 20 (or 75!) frames. After all, I’m not 12 and I don’t pick glasses based on who in my homeroom wears “the popular” style. This is a major style decision!
So I was really excited to learn about GlassesUSA. This fabulous site offers high quality, fashionable eyeglasses with a huge range of frame styles. You can easily shop by frame type, size, or materials. No matter what style you’re looking for, from trendy to traditional, you can find it at GlassesUSA.
Having never sported glasses before, I was concerned about purchasing online eyeglasses. But GlassesUSA has an amazing “virtual mirror” that allows you to “try on” your glasses before you buy them. Just create your photo and try any frame in the vast selection. It’s simple as 1-2-3! Upload an existing photo, use your webcam, or choose from a selection of existing photos for a surprisingly close match.
Since price is always an issue, I was pleasantly surprised that GlassesUSA has a 110% lowest price guarantee and a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Their current specials include:
- Back-to-School BOGO Sale. Buy any pair of glasses valued at $50 or more and get a second pair of glasses free! CODE: Back2School
