Free or Not, It's All Good

     Who doesn't like to get something for free?  We've all been lured by claims of getting something for nothing.       I'm no exception, so, I was intrigued recently when I received an email from a company called offering me a free pair of eyeglasses in return for writing a review on my blog.  It just so happened it was time for me to see my ophthalmologist and I knew I needed new glasses, so, I decided to give them a try.  

     Before agreeing to the deal, I looked up their website and checked out their company.  Everything seemed to be on the up and up.  They had a wonderful selection of frames to pick from and even had a virtual try on where you could upload your  own photo and actually try on the frames you like to see what they look like on you.   After picking out the frames I liked, I sent my prescription, and ordered my glasses.  That's when I found out I hadn't read the fine print close enough.   Their offer of free glasses only applies to single vision prescriptions.  If you are only near sighted, or only far sighted, you qualify.  Unfortunately, I am both, plus I have astigmatism.  Definitely not single vision.  But, all was not lost.

     Firmoo still offered me free frames and I just had to pay for the lenses.    I am very particular about my glasses.  Besides the differences in vision, I will only wear glasses that have progressive lenses, as well as transition lenses.  If you have bought glasses with these features you know that my last several pairs of glasses purchased at the eye doctors have cost me from $400 to $500.   My glasses ordered from   cost me a total of $61.90.    Before receiving them, I was a little concerned about what the quality would be.  I have to say I am very pleased.  They are well-made, quality materials and I can see great!  Actually, I didn't realize how bad I was seeing with my old glasses until I received these.   So, what do you think?

     Firmoo is now offering a free pair of glasses to all first time customers.  Again, this is single vision, but includes both regular glasses or sunglasses.  If you don't need prescription they will send you a pair of non-prescription sunglasses.   Why not check them out at .

     Even though my glasses were not free, I am still very pleased with them.  My husband also ordered his glasses from and he, too, received a quality pair of glasses.  If you need new glasses or sunglasses, why not check them out?

Until next time...that's my view.




  1. Cool! I never knew you could get eyeglasses online. Thank you for the tip, and the glasses look great!


  2. That's great! Thanks for sharing the link, I am going to check out their site now.

  3. Ah that's nice and it suits you. They contacted me to but after I told I am not from the US they backed out. Wont blame them. Mailing a pair to this part of the world would be really high.

    1. Sorry it didn't work out for you.

  4. I'm going to go check out the site. I so need to get my eyes checked and insurance covers that, just not the glasses and I know very well I need them. My cheaters aren't even working like they should be.
    Just stopping by to say hi and hope that life is treating you grandly.
    Take care my friend. Blessings!

    1. Hope it works out for you Julie!


You've read my thoughts, now, please leave me yours. Thank you.
