Suddenly I See

When Firmoo contacted me about trying out a pair of complimentary glasses, I was intrigued. I like free things (who doesn't?), and free glasses are actually very useful and practical for me. I have awful eyesight and usually rely on my contacts, but I have been trying to wear my glasses more often since contacts dry my eyes out like whoa. At first I wasn't sure if I wanted to get a new pair of glasses, even if they were free. After all, the ones I already had were just fine! But after browsing Firmoo's selection, I knew I had to try out some of their styles.

Their variety is their biggest strength. In addition to eyeglasses (both prescription and non-prescription), they also have sunglasses, and I think everyone can find a pair that suits their tastes. Even if your eyesight is perfect (lucky duck!), you can have a lot of fun sporting glasses. These days, they're becoming an accessory, and it's an enjoyable, easy way to change up your look. I wanted to try out a larger frame than I normally wear and ended up going for a nerdy sort of look. This pair is a bit retro, and I was excited to try out something different from my usual basic black frames. I went with the tortoiseshell look and totally felt like a British professor. :D



I greatly appreciated that Firmoo was able to offer me a thinner glass lens that would normally cost extra. My prescription is pretty strong, so if the glass wasn't intentionally made to be thinner, it would end up having that extra-thick Coke-bottle glasses feature. I am definitely very thankful that I was able to avoid that!




I will say that I think Firmoo could do a better job of making their check-out process a bit easier. After making my initial glasses selection, I wanted to go back and get a different pair, and their shopping cart doesn't allow easy editing of the items in the cart. It was a bit frustrating to navigate that system, and while it was hardly an impossible feat, I like my online shopping experience to be easy and require minimal effort. This was hardly a dealbreaker for me, but again, I want to be honest about my experiences.

Overall, I would definitely order from Firmoo again. They have a wide, changing selection of eyeglasses and sunglasses, and it's a lot of fun to play around with different looks. The best part is, dear readers, is that they offer a free pair of glasses to new customers! When all of you have to do is pay shipping, I think this is a great opportunity to try out a new pair of glasses virtually risk-free. They also offer free shipping codes for future orders, which I always like to see for my online shopping needs.

Whether you need to replace a new pair of glasses or just want a stylish accessory for spring, consider checking out Firmoo!
