EyeBuyDirect.com (review/giveaway)


I've worn glasses since I was young, I think like 8 or 9 years old. My dad wears glasses, so being I'm a spitting image of him, I inherited his eyes too ha ha! I've been through a ton of glasses in my lifetime, I was rough on them when I was younger because I had no idea how expensive glasses were.
Now, I'm out on my own I have to pay for them myself (well Jeff has to pay for them since he's the only bread winner here) I've worn the same frames for YEARS now, because I would rather spend my money on the kids. I would occasionally go get an eye exam to update my Rx, and got contacts once or twice (but they are expensive too), most of the time the difference wasn't that much, so I didn't bother with changing the lenses in my glasses to save money...but recently I got an exam and when I got my trial pair of contacts I was amazed at how much difference my old glasses and the contacts were in strength! I could see clearly! This was right after I had Jaxon so money was EXTREMELY tight. That's when I stumbled upon EyeBuyDirect.com. They have a ton of selections of glasses for GREAT prices, prescription glasses start at $7.95, that includes lenses!!!! EyeBuyDirect.com even has "Eye Try" where you take a picture of yourself with your web cam or upload a picture of yourself and "try on" the glasses before you buy them! The picture to the left is my "Eye Try" picture with the glasses I ended up getting, (forgive the quality, I used my built in cam on my laptop) Tamalpias for only $34.95. I've worn wire frame glasses all my life, I was overdue for a MAJOR change, these glasses accomplished that! Here to the right is an actual picture of me in my new glasses!

EyeBuyDirect.com offers a lot more than other places, you can get a real Swarovski crystal put into the lens of your glasses, you can get UV protection, different thickness of lenses, color tint to the lenses, anti-reflective, anti-scratch, and Photochromic (Light-adjusting) of course some of those cost extra. Ordering was simple, I just got the plain Jane, standard thickness, anti-scratch and UV coating. You just click the boxes of the extras you want, and put in your prescription information, and check out! Simple. I love my new glasses! I think they look pretty good on me, better than my old ones.

The Giveaway: EyeBuyDirect.com is giving away a pair of glasses (excluding designer eye wear and sunglasses).

Main Entry: Visit EyeBuyDirect.com and then come back here and comment with which frames you would choose if you win. Remember, this must be done before any extra entries are done for them to count.
