Wear It: Glasses (GlassesUSA Review)


I’m nearsighted, so I spend a good amount of time in my glasses.  I didn’t need to start wearing prescription glasses until I was 30, but I’ve embraced them as another fun accessory for my wardrobe.

I’ve been loving the trend of bigger frames this year, so when an opportunity to review eyeglasses from came up, I simply couldn’t resist the chance to try something new.

The fun part of choosing glasses from is trying on frames in their virtual mirror.  In the virtual mirror, you upload a headshot of yourself, and then you spend hours and hours seeing how their large assortment of frames looks on you.  This is a super fun way to try on styles that you otherwise might not attempt, such as trendy thick black nerd frames, or red old lady cat eye frames.  As you try on, you can save your favorites to reference and compare.

Here’s what my virtual mirror looked like:


I’m not so much the black nerd frames kind of gal, so I ultimately chose a pair of brown frames in a larger style that I’ve never tried before.  What do you think?  I really love them!


Once I placed my order, the customer service was amazing.  They emailed me every step of the process:  when my order was confirmed, when the frames were sent to the lab to have the prescription set, when they were shipped.  I placed my order on a Wednesday evening, and they were delivered to my door by 8am Monday morning.  I was amazed at how quick it all was.

When I received the frames, I was completely happy with them.  The quality is great, and the prescription is perfect.

I highly recommend if you need to buy glasses.  I’ll admit, I was a little hesitant about buying glasses over the internet without trying them on first, but made the entire process easy and user friendly.

  2. This is timely - I'm going to get some new glasses in the new year. Since I wear progressive prescription lenses, I'm also glad the frames are going larger again, and I'm looking forward to seeing the new styles. I wear mine all the time, so they're a part of my face! I might check out GlassesUSA, at least to get some ideas.
