Shopping For Eyeglasses?

While I personally don't wear eyeglasses, several of our family members do. I remember when M, the youngest, first learned she needed reading glasses, and we were amazed at the expense! It wasn't long after that when I discovered that you could buy glasses online

One company I discovered is This company offers mens and womens glasses at very reasonable prices. You can even purchase prescription sunglasses through GlassesUSA! It's very easy to shop this site. Simply choose your favorite frame (although this could take a while; the selection is almost endless, and you're sure to find multiple favorites). After selecting your frame, you can enter your eyeglasses prescription to get the perfect lens. 

One aspect of GlassesUSA I thought was neat (and unique; I don't think I've seen this on other eyeglass sites I've looked at) is the virtual mirror! This enables you to actually upload a picture of yourself (or take one with your webcam) and literally "try on" the different glasses. This ensures you end up with a pair of eyeglasses that you actually like! It makes it so easy to find that perfect frame. I actually tried the Virtual Mirror out just to see what I'd look like wearing glasses! Check it out:

Not bad, huh?
GlassesUSA is running some nice discounts right now, so if you are shopping for eyeglasses, you might want to take advantage of these. You can get 15% off your entire order amount (as long as it's over $50.00), AND free shipping, with the code FS15. Or, take 10% off any order of prescription glasses with the code Blog10. Head over and start shopping...and be sure to try out the Virtual Mirror while you're there!


  1. I never heard of this site for glasses. My whole family needs glasses and I spend a fortune even with insurance. I love the idea of the virtual mirror. I will definitely look into this for our future eyeglasses.

  2. I love how they offer a virtual mirror to try glasses on

  3. That Virtual mirror is really neat. Great review. I just got an exam and new prescription and will check out this company right away.
