For as long as I can remember, I’ve always had glasses. At 6, I was already as blind as a bat and proudly wearing tiny pastel rounded eyeglasses. Seventeen years later, I’m still, if not more of a « fille à lunettes » (which is French for « a glasses’ girl ») as ever before. Countless times have I been told I maybe should think of getting contact lenses or even undergoing a laser operation… The first option has never been of interest to me, because I was always repelled by putting contact lenses on and off, and also because as I was growing up, I was enjoying wearing glasses – either because they were in fashion again after the first Harry Potter film was released, because they made me look super smart (and who doesn’t know smart was always the ‘new’ sexy?), or simply because I liked my face with glasses on, all excuses were excellent not to get contact lenses, so let alone undergo a crazy scary operation that might fail!
Until very recently, each time I had a new prescription for eyeglasses and/or sunglasses, I was suddenly filled with excitement at the idea of going to see my optician and picking the one pair that would beautify my eyes. But growing old and lazy and also extremely busy with work and life, I have got accustomed to online shopping. I thought that some things would never change, like going to the optician’s. But buying eyeglasses online, no matter how skeptical I first was, turned out to be a pretty cool invention I soon could not live without.
My first experience was with GlassesShop.com, a global online eyeglasses and prescription sunglasses retailer, from whom I got this very affordable pair of tortoise Saxton round prescription eyeglasses – all I had to do was give my RX and PD (pupillary distance) and virtually try a few pairs on before making my decision, and Internet had it all done for me one more time. As always when I receive a new pair of glasses, I’m like a kid who just got a new toy, and I was nicely surprised by how great the lenses were when my new pair from the GlassesShop.com arrived in my mailbox – the lenses were perfectly settled and the frame, even though a little fragile, was exactly what I wanted and was expecting from my online order.
So in conclusion, if you’re in a hurry or just a little lazy & need new and affordable prescription eyeglasses or sunglasses you will be able to change more often if you get bored of the pair you have and are as much of a glasses-aholic as you are a shoe-aholic, there is a special coupon code GSHOT50 you can use to get 50% off eyeglasses and sunglasses with free lenses on the GlassesShop.com website (price of frame is excluded; all eyeglasses include free 1.50 single vision lenses, free anti-scratch coating, and free protective case and clothing).
