Ordering Prescription Eyeglasses with GlassesShop

I've been a glasses wearer for most of my life - 14 years to be exact. I've stayed loyal to my local opticians and have only ever purchased my eyeglasses through them. I felt that they know me and my prescription and I was happy to do that. offer eyeglasses online as well as prescription sunglasses. I have to admit that I was a little dubious about the whole thing as I wasn't sure that it would be as easy as it is to order through my optician or the glasses wouldn't be as good.

There are tons of glasses frames to choose from and I actually found it quite hard to settle on a style because I loved so many of them. In the end, I opted for GrandPrarie Wayfarer in black. I do love a thick black frame, it's my signature style. The shape was a little different from what I am used to but I hoped they'd suit me - I did worry about not being able to try the style on before purchasing but I was hopeful.

In order to have the glasses tailored to me, I just had to input my Rx (OD & OS prescription) and my PD (pupillary distance). I had my prescription at home and working out my PD was easy enough using online tutorials. After ordering, my glasses arrived quite quickly.

They were packaged well, in a hard case, and came with a cleaning cloth. As soon as I tried them on, I could tell that the prescription was perfect for me and my partner Chris actually told me that he liked them better than the ones I'd been previously wearing.

Every time I get new glasses, it does take me a while to get used to the shape of them and how they look on my face. This time was no different. The more I wore them, I got used to them and I'm loving having a extra pair so I can switch them up whenever I want. It's also handy having another pair as I have two young children who can be very 'rough and tumble' when it comes to playing!

I have definitely been converted now that I can see just how easy it is to buy prescription glasses over the Internet. The prices are great too and as I've never had a pair of prescription sunglasses, I'll definitely be treating myself to a pair for the summer!

(I received a pair of glasses for the purpose of this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.)
