My mother and two of my sisters have worn prescription glasses since they were children and I’ve often heard them talk about how difficult it can be to find affordable and fashionable prescription glasses. But since the advent of online shopping, high-quality discount glasses are much easier to obtain, as long as the shopper knows where to look.
Recently, I got the chance to review a pair of glasses from 39DollarGlasses.com. I was amazed by the fabulous selection the website offered and since it was created by optometrists, the quality and value of the glasses is unparalleled. I couldn’t wait to choose a pair of glasses for myself.
Nobody in my immediate family wears prescription lenses, but 39DollarGlasses.com also offers non-prescription choices, so I decided to let my husband pick out a pair of glasses. He chose the Oslo frames, which have a squared-off shape that he loves. The frames came in three available colours and after a great deal of deliberation he decided to choose the Gunmetal frames, which were a flat, dark grey colour.
Once he had chosen his frames, it was time to enter the prescription information and choose the lenses. I loved how easy ordering from 39DollarGlasses.com was; the website was set up so that even someone that is new to prescription glasses would have no trouble entering the correct information. We were given information to enter to ensure that we received non-prescription lenses.
When the time came to choose lenses, we initially checked out the different tints for sunglasses, but when I noticed that upgrading to Transitions lenses was only $40 more, I suggested that to my husband instead. Transitions lenses are absolutely coveted among those who wear glasses since they automatically darken in bright light to provide proper UVA and UVB protection in any lighting. Instead of just sunglasses, we chose the Transitions lenses.
The total cost for a pair of Transitions glasses with a high-quality metal frame was only $98 and I couldn’t help but be impressed by the reasonable prices at 39DollarGlasses.com. For the next week, my husband and I were both checking the mailbox regularly.
When the glasses arrived, my husband was absolutely giddy. They were even nicer than they had looked on the website and featured great details like spring hinges on the arms to ensure a proper fit and protect the glasses from breaking. I loved the hard-shell case and handy glasses care kit that came with the glasses. But what I really wanted to check out was the Transitions lenses themselves.
My husband put the metal glasses on and headed outside to see how they worked. When he came back inside the house about ten minutes later, the lenses were completely dark and looked exactly like sunglasses. After being inside for a short time, they were once again clear and looked exactly like regular glasses.
I was blown away by the beautiful and affordable glasses I received, but I think the website itself impressed me even more. 39DollarGlasses.com really goes above and beyond to make ordering prescription glasses online as easy and effective as possible. From printable pages with frames in their actual size to the SmartFit Face Shape imaging software so that I could see the same frames on different faces, my husband and I didn’t have to worry about picking an unflattering style on this site! And so many costly extras come standard on the glasses! I loved that every pair of glasses came with anti-scratch coating and 100% UV protection and as a mother, I adored the fact that every single pair of child’s glasses the company sells contain shatter-proof poly carbonate lenses. It’s so nice to know that 39DollarGlasses.com cares about protecting my child’s eyes as much as I do.
My husband loves his Transitions sunglasses from 39DollarGlasses.com and with a cost of less than $100, there’s no reason for anyone to worry about toting around two pairs of glasses again. If you wear prescription lenses and have been searching for an affordable place to get your next pair of lenses, or if you just want a high-quality pair of non-prescription glasses, check out 39DollarGlasses.com. The prices are unbeatable, the quality is phenomenal and the selection is fantastic. There’s really no reason to shop anywhere else!
