Glasses.com and no more frumpy frames!

I’m murder on glasses.  They tend to end up on the floor at some time during the day.  Or I roll over them, inadvertently, when I’m napping on the couch.  I’ve even fallen asleep with them in bed, and woke up with them on my forehead, in my hair, or, if I’m lucky, on the pillow next to mine.  Needless to say that, the other day, I needed an adjustment…\r\n\r\nBut I’ve never been really happy with these frames.  Even though the lenses are great,  the frames are more for someone who’s a bit on the middle-aged-soccer-mom side of life than I’ll ever be.  I like my ophthalmologist though, because she understands my need to have the right lens for my work online.  So, the other day, when I went to get my glasses straightened out (again,) I asked if she would be able to put lenses in a frame I purchased from  Glasses.com.  She said, “no problem! just bring them in when you get them.”\r\n\r\nNeedless to say I was super happy!  I’d spent some time the other day searching the Glasses.com site and found some frame styles that I hadn’t seen at her shop nor at the mass-market glasses shop in the mall.  I found several really great colors and styles that were all much lower priced than what I found when I comparison-shopped.  Like this pair from Guess (which come in 3 colors)\r\n\r\n

\r\n\r\nGlasses.com even carries frames from high-end sunglasses maker Maui Jim, hip men’s and women’s frames from Converse, Smith Optics, and many others. While you’re searching, you can also filter search results in a number of ways, including whether or not they are suitable for bifocals, for your face shape, or for color. On the page for each frame are the specifications, so your ophthalmologist or optometrist can look up the style and get all the info needed to properly fit your lenses.\r\n\r\nAnd now that I know my ophthalmologist can fit my wonky lenses to a great frame, I’m going to save myself a couple of bucks by ordering frames through Glasses.com and trust her expertise to make me another pair of great lenses.\r\n\r\n*this is a sponsored post for Glasses.com
