I have been wearing glasses for more than half my life. I like my frames and the fun styles I can wear. The attitude and personality I can achieve from frames, along with the comfort I find in them, are why I choose to keep with frames over contacts. I wear them everyday from morning, noon to night. One things I have always wanted was a pair of prescription sunglasses. Being in my 30’s and with my style I just don’t feel like transitional lens are for me (they kind that automatically becomes tinted in bright lights). I have tried wearing oversize sunglasses over top of my prescription glasses and my husband hates it. He thinks I am being ridiculous. I thought I was being crafty… :-p So I have been grinning and bearing it….until now!

I found out about GlassesUSA.com recently and did some additional research. I know loads of people who buy their glasses online. I just never thought about doing it myself. But then I saw the amazing selection of frames – including brands like Ray-Bans, Oakley, Armani Exchange, DKNY and many more. This was a legit website with real brands and styles that appeal to me, the everyday mom. The website is laid out in a very easy to navigate manner. Allowing you to click between brands, styles, shapes and price points easily. However if you’re wanting peace of mind and don’t want to have to wait until your glasses come to see if they’re right for you, you can see if your health insurance policy covers optical correction and get your glasses made perfectly for YOU.

GlassesUSA has been making glasses for consumers since 2008. They feature a huge lab with state-of-the-art equipment to get us the highest quality glasses we desire. If customer service is something you consider in making purchases you will be pleased to hear that they respond to emails within 24 hours and phone calls within 10 seconds!

Because of this attitude they really stand out in the online glasses community.

  9. I’ve never ordered prescription sunglasses before because I haven’t needed them. However in the last year, I’ve found that I may need stronger reading glasses. I’d like a combination of both!

  22. I’ve only been wearing glasses for a couple of months now. I never thought about buying them online. I really like the large assortment this company has. Sure is a lot more to choose from them our local, small town provider has!
