Affordable Glasses at GlobalEyeglasses.com {Review & Giveaway}

GlobalEyeglasses logo{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Ali!}

While playing a game of "Let's pretend..." recently, our daughters decided that they would pretend to be my husband and me.

As I started to become apprehensive about what I sound like to a 3- and 5-year-old, the aspect of both of us that the girls focused on wasn't actually our personalities or parenting at all. Instead, Little Sister B turned to Big Sister E and said, quite matter-of-factually, Now you have to wear glasses and now I have to wear glasses.

Oh, little do you know, daughter of mine. As both her father and I are dependent on glasses or contact lenses (my eyes are especially poor), only time will tell how long it is before our children need help seeing as well.

Fortunately for them, glasses are viewed as a hip, trendy, fashionable accessory for all ages these days and not something to be hidden away. Also fortunate for them? The fact that while purchasing eyeglasses in the store can be pricey, finding the same selection and style with an affordable price tag online is easy to do. That's what GlobalEyeglasses.com is all about!

glasses onlineAs a global leader in the direct retailing of professional-made prescription glasses and sunglasses right from the comfort of your computer, GlobalEyeglasses.com has managed to change the way that we shop for eyewear. Whether you're looking for a new pair of glasses to complement your wardrobe or replace older ones that are broken, not your current prescription or just out-of-date, GlobalEyeglasses makes the process fast, fun and easy.

On a mission to provide the best services, best quality and best cheap glassescollection of eyeglasses to their customers at competitive pricing structures, GlobalEyeglasses.com has the expertise, convenience and affordability that you desire. As their company's industry specialists perfectly understand your optical needs and custom make (and recheck) every lens and frame for accuracy, precision and quality, you can rest assured that the product that will arrive will be a hit.

As I began to browse through the large selection of glasses offered, right away I appreciated the way that GlobalEyeglasses.com made it easy to navigate and narrow down their collections. Whether shopping for plastic vs metal, round vs rectangular, men's vs women's, or much more, they've got them all laid out and only a click away.

With my eye out for a full rim, rectangular plastic frame that would add a little trendy kick to my wardrobe, when I came upon the S55, I knew that they would be a fun addition to my life.

trendy glassesWhile many people might wonder how you can order glasses online without being able to try them on, GlobalEyeglasses.com makes it simple in two easy ways.

First, the frame dimensions. By being able to compare the S55 to the current glasses that I wear, I had no problem being able to see just how these would look and fit my face.

glasses dimensionsSecond, you can actually virtually try on glasses right at your computer thanks to the technology on GlobalEyeglasses.com's site. With the click of a button, you can get a general idea of the glasses on a model or, with a few more clicks, you can upload a photo of yourself or even use your webcam to get a live shot.

Place the glasses on the model or yourself and there you are trying them on!

try on glasses onlineAfter waiting a reasonable amount of time, a package from GlobalEyeglasses.com arrived and inside I found my S55 frames safely packed in a lightweight hard case with a cleaning cloth.

affordable glassesI hadn't realized that these acetate frames would have a glitter effect to the retro look, but I found that just gives them a little extra touch of uniqueness.

GlobalEyeglasses reviewAs I had been able to see all of the dimensions for these frames right online, I wasn't surprised when I placed them on and they fit very well. The lenses were crisp and clear and it didn't take long for my eyes to adjust so that I could wear the S55 around without problem.

Plus, as the description mentioned that these frames "are great for people who require high power lenses as the arms hide the lens thickness," I was happy to see that this was indeed true... and hiding the fact that I have such poor eyesight is definitely a feature I appreciate in eyeglasses!

black glassesAvailable in red, black and dark purple, these glasses have fun a fun way to add something new and different to my wardrobe. Best of all? Instead of spending hundreds to add a little kick to your life, the S55 cost only $49 at GlobalEyeglasses.com, including the lenses (which is important for someone like me who needs those extra strong ones).

With glasses available for men, women and children starting at only $12.95, the days of having to spend a fortune on glasses are a thing of the past. GlobalEyeglasses.com offers their customers a full pair of prescription lenses and frames at low prices, certified optical technicians who are experts to craft and inspect every pair of glasses, the convenience of shopping whenever and wherever for your schedule, and a simple and straight forward return policy with no questions asked. They really have it all!

If all of that isn't enough for you, be sure to enter the coupon code ThanksMailCarrier at checkout on GlobalEyeglasses.com and you'll instantly receive a 15% discount on your purchases. Can't beat a savings on their already-low prices!

And, thanks to their generosity, one person will soon be able to see the world clearly while looking stylish and chic, because...

One lucky person will win a $50 gift certificate to GlobalEyeglasses.com!
