|Me and my mini-me at Hillstone last week wearing my new|
Firmoo frames (F048)
I had Lasik surgery in my early 30s. I always liked wearing glasses but once you have a baby you find that they tend to like to grab them and YANK them off your face - which can be quite painful. And expensive. At the time I had Lasik, my doctor told me that around my mid-40s I would probably have to have the procedure done again - that your eyes change with age and with that comes the need for a refresher. And here I am. I've been wearing glasses for a couple of years. I used to just need them for reading, and then I needed them during the day when I was on the computer, and now I find that any time I don't have them on the world is very hazy.

You upload a photo of yourself from your computer and then you "try on" the frames you like to see how they would look on your face. Once you find a pair you like, you upload your prescription and a few weeks later your new frames are on your doorstep. This online visual is good but not perfect and I'm not gonna lie, when the first pair of frames I ordered came in, I liked them but felt like they were a tad small for my face. So I went back to Firmoo and tried it again. I ended up with two new pairs of glasses for under $150 - with progressive lenses. Let's reflect back to the beginning of this post where I said my last pair of frames were valued at over $800. It was worth the experimentation! Now that I've been through this exercise, my advice would be to go to an optical store and try on frames to find the style and size you like. The price sticker on any frame you try on will have 3 numbers: the lens width, bridge measurement and lens height. (For exp: 52-17-45.) Write down the measurements so when you go online, you know the range in which to work.
I was very pleased with my Firmoo experience and will definitely be using them again. After all, glasses are an accessory, just like shoes or jewelry. What girl do you know that has one pair of shoes? Exactly! I need options! New customers to Firmoo will receive 15% off their first order, so try them out!
