Glasses USA Review

I've been wearing glasses since I was about 10 years old. I remember my mom taking me to the Optometrists office every year in order to pick a new pair of eyeglasses & upon looking at the wall of reject glasses I'd cringe at the fact that I'd have to wear a pair of those around my friends. It's funny how far glasses have come because now we & our kids don't have to choose from the reject wall.

We're lucky enough to have so many options in frames & where to get them from now a days. I've been known to shop for my prescription glasses anywhere from the local department store to the high end stores but have found that in the end they're all the same, except for the price that is.

I was recently given the opportunity to review a pair of glasses from Glasses USA. And, to be honest, purchasing glasses online had crossed my mind once or twice but I never did it because I was always afraid that they wouldn't be the right fit or they'd mess up my prescription. So, needless to say when this opportunity arose, I jumped on it & I'm glad I did. I received my glasses in the mail yesterday & was extremely pleased with them.

I was surprised by how easy & quick the entire process was. All I had to do was go onto Glasses USA, pick out a pair that I liked from from their ample selection (I chose the Taylor Gray Marble Full Frames), email them a copy of my prescription & within a week I had my glasses. Really, it was that easy. Besides having a variety of glasses (starting at $18) to choose from the best part is that all of their prices include frames & lenses. If you're a fellow eyeglass wearer you know that the frames can be expensive but the lenses can sometimes be even more expensive so this is a great deal. So, if you're looking to purchase a new pair of eye glasses or a back up pair I recommend you check out Glasses USA & think about purchasing your glasses online.

Oh, almost forgot the best part...as an added bonus Glasses USA is offering all Vault readers a coupon code for 5% off your final order. This is a great deal considering all of their eyeglasses are already low priced. To get the discount just enter the code: Mommy5 at checkout.

Something I really liked about this company is the fact all of their returned eyeglasses are not restocked & resold. All of the returned glasses are recycled, meaning they donate all of the returned glasses to various organizations around the U.S. who sanitize & redistribute them with the correct prescription to people all over the world who cant afford vision care.
