I’ve had glasses since the middle of first grade, and as my eyes worsened, glasses got more and more expensive. Once I started to understand the cost of glasses (meaning once I started paying for them myself), I couldn’t believe just how expensive they were! Thankfully, it wasn’t long after I started paying for my own eyewear that online ordering came along, with sites like Firmoo giving you the option of stylish frames with various lens options, all without draining your bank account.
Who is Firmoo?
Firmoo.com is the world’s most popular online eyeglasses store. Years of expertise in optical industry enable Firmoo.com to offer varieties of prescription eyewear in high quality yet at extremely affordable prices. The folks at Firmoo conducted a survey concerning the efficiency of the optical industry in the US and found that it’s one of the most inefficient ones in the country.
Traditional retailers mark eyewear up, get very little foot traffic, and ultimately force consumers to pay hundreds of dollars for glasses worth just a fraction of that. By bypassing most of the expenses incurred by brick and mortar stores, Firmoo was able to pass the savings on to customers thanks to their online optical store. Thanks to the harmonious collaboration between Firmoo’s optical experts, direct manufacturers, and their overseas laboratories, Firmoo.com offers our customers the cheapest prices at a fraction of what optical store charges.
Low prices, high quality.
Despite the low prices at Firmoo.com, they strive to provide quality eyewear and high-end service to their customers. Quality is never compromised at Firmoo because they fully understand that prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses are regulated by the FDA as Class I medical devices, which means that the Firmoo team inspects each pair of glasses multiple times before shipping them to customers. These inspections ensure that prescriptions are 100% accurate and that Firmoo’s customers are happy with what they receive.
Fashion forward for less.
The thought of low priced glasses makes a long-time glasses wearer like myself think of the granny-looking pairs found in the bargain bins. Fortunately, Firmoo also understands the role eyeglasses play in terms of aesthetics. While glasses aren’t normally consumed in the same manner as other fashion items, due to the high cost, Firmoo.com makes it easy to accessorize your face with tons of different frames. That means those of us who’d love to be able to wear a different pair of glasses each day of the week can start making that dream a reality, especially when you can get your first pair free at Firmoo!
Great selection, even if you don’t wear glasses.
All of the frames that Firmoo offers are available as sunglasses or regular glasses, prescription or not. That means that all of you who don’t need glasses can still benefit from the great selection and prices Firmoo has to offer. They have frames for men and women, and offer quite a few search options so you can find the frame that suits you. When it comes time to order, you can choose your lens type, even bifocal lenses are available. If you want, you can even buy frames without lenses.
A satisfied customer is priceless.
Firmoo.com feels that each satisfied customer is priceless, because satisfied customers help spread the word. Satisfied customers can further solidify Firmoo’s position as the leading online optical store in the world, and because of that, Firmoo values their customers. Firmoo stands behind their products, but can work with customers who feel the need to exchange or return their eyewear.
Classic? Geek-Chic? Whatever your style, Firmoo has something for you.
I’ve already mentioned that Firmoo has styles for men and women, but the amount of styles they offer is incredible. I recommend starting to browse in Firmoo’s Classic Series, where you’ll find tons of great frame shapes and colors. If nothing there strikes your fancy, you can narrow it down by gender, then look at specific frame shape, material, or size. You can even look at all frames available in a specific color, which is awesome if you know you want, say, tortoise frames, but aren’t sure what shape you want.
My top picks?
I figured I’d show you what my favorite frames were at Firmoo, but I tell you, it was a tough choice! I know, I know, I always talk about how I have trouble making decisions, but in this case, it really was! I figured I could choose 6 pairs to round out my week, since I already have one pair of glasses I love. I totally dig these purple cat-eye frames–way fun! And these burgundy wayfarers are a warm alternative to basic black. These pale blue wayfarers are a great weekend pair–nice and light–and I’ve been looking for a great pair of clear frames for ages now! These pearly grey ones would be great with grey photochromatic lenses, for sunny days. And last, but not least, these subtly color-blocked frames would be fun for a night out on the town!
