Recently, I received an opportunity from GlassesShop.com to try their online prescription eyeglasses. Due to my extremely busy schedule, I haven’t committed to any blogging partnerships lately but I was too curious about this one to turn it down. How could cheap glasses ordered from the Internet fit properly? Would they even arrive in one piece? I went through the online catalogue and I was impressed by the selection of frames. You can order prescription or non-prescription glasses. I selected a pair of eyeglasses with clip-on sunglasses and submitted my prescription with the order. The key to having the glasses fit properly is to have a recent prescription and your PD (pupillary distance), which is the measurement from the centre of each pupil. My optometrist had provided this number on my prescription, but if it’s not there, you can download a PD ruler or use a mobile app to help you determine this measurement.
I was provided a tracking number and the glasses were shipped and delivered in approximately one week. I was really impressed! The carton was small and the package fit easily in my mailbox so I didn’t have to pick them up from the post office. I also received a nice protective case and a cleaning cloth along with the glasses. The quality of the glasses was very high and they fit perfectly without any adjustments.
I am now confident in recommending online eyeglasses. For many people without a benefit package, the cost of prescription eyeglasses is too high. If you need them, they are a medical necessity, not a luxury! Because GlassesShop.com is currently offering your first pair free, you have nothing to lose and only good eyesight to gain. And with so many styles, you can be cheap but still afford to be trendy. GlassesShop.com is also offering Canadian Cheapo readers the opportunity to save even more. Additional eyeglasses and sunglasses can be purchased at 50% off with the coupon code GSHOT50 (sale frames excluded). Check it out and let me know what you think!
