A few weeks ago I was contacted by GlassesUSA.com with the offer to review their glasses*. The online perscription glasses vendor asked me not just to review the glasses themselves, but the whole ordering/customer service process.
I’ve been committed to only reviewing products that fit with my blogs content — so considering that I’ve been a regular unpaid reviewer of Zenni Optical’s eyeglasses, it seemed appropriate that I accept this mission.
How it works: GlassesUSA allows you to shop by many attributes including frame type, style, material or shape. Unlike Zenni, GlassesUSA offers a variety of name brand/designer frames. I definitely spent some time oggling over the creations of Tom Ford, GUESS, Lacoste and Kenneth Cole. (For perspective, Kenneth Coles on GlassesUSA.com ranged from $99 to $140, which is a good chunk less than one would pay at, say, your neighborhood brick and mortar shop (e.g., Lens Crafters). These really reasonable prices include basic lenses.
The site also has a huge number of non-branded, trendy and classic glasses — meaning there’s a really solid number of choices.
