Review and Giveaway: EyeBuyDirect.com

I was given the opportunity to review a pair of glasses from EyeBuyDirect.com. They have so many frames to choose from! What really makes this site stand out is that their site is so interactive. They have the Eye Try, which is a way to see how the glasses you like might actually look on you. You just have to upload a photo and choose the glasses you want to try on. It is pretty easy to do and really helped me to narrow my choices down to the pair I ended up liking the best. Another thing I like is that they have pictures of different angles of the glasses and the different color options the frames come in.

Anti-Scratch protection comes free with the glasses (as well as a case and cleaning cloth). I did not get the Thin and Lite lens upgrade ($25), although it is recommended, since it was not included for my review. I was worried I would end up with coke bottle glasses, but it turned out with the style of my glasses it was not noticeable how thick the lenses are and they don't feel heavy either. If the earpieces are thin on the pair you get however, I think it would be wise to get the upgrade. UV Coating ($4.95) and Anti-Reflective Coating ($6.95) is also recommended.


I chose the Armagh frames in black ($24.95). I LOVE these glasses. I never would have chosen them had it not been for the Eye Try, because it is a shape I normally don't like on me. The frames turned out to be a little wider than expected, but it doesn't bother me at all. Also, the frames are a little loose on me, but that will be easily remedied when I go get them adjusted at my optometrist. Ordering the glasses was easy since they have a "How To" on reading your prescription. After I had the frames picked out it took me about 5-10 minutes to finish my order which came to less than $40 including shipping! That is an excellent deal for a pair of glasses. If you don['t have insurance (like me) then this is probably one of the best possible ways to get affordable glasses. Even if you DO have insurance there tend to be a lot of restrictions on when you can get a pair and how much they will cover, so this may be a better option for you to!
