Affordable and Stylish Prescription Glasses from EyeBuyDirect: Review and Giveaway (Ends 11/15) CLOSED

Sunday, October 31, 2010 Posted by Dina N

My husband is very picky about his glasses. The frames have to be stylish yet simple, the lenses must be scratch-resistant and anti-reflective, and the glasses must be light and comfortable to wear. Choosing the right pair usually involves a family trip to the optician, and trying on several frames until he makes the final decision.

Ordering prescription glasses online was a new experience for hubby. We sat down together and browsed the wide selection of frames at EyeBuyDirect.com. It took no time at all to narrow it down using his preferred material (titanium) as the selection criteria. We chose the Rome frames in gunmetal, then entered his prescription and lens preferences (super thin), and the lens options (anti-reflective). If you don't care about thin lenses, standard ones are included for free with the frame purchase, as well as anti-scratch coating on all types of lenses.

The ordering process was quick and seamless, and we received the glasses in two weeks. They came with a free case and polishing cloth. My husband tried the glasses on - and has not taken them off since (well, during the day that is). He says they are comfy, light, and give him Xray vision - I think he's just kidding on that last one. But he does see perfectly when he's wearing them. And I am happy they cost about half of what we would have spent at the optician's - plus we saved a trip and a couple of hours! Win-win in my book.

The Giveaway
One lucky reader will win a free pair of prescription eyeglasses from EyeBuyDirect - frame and lenses - up to a $100 value!
