I love glasses. I remember from a very young age, I cursed my good eyesight because I wanted to wear glasses so badly. Fast forward twenty years and things started to get a little fuzzy around the edges so I went to an eye doctor. I think our exchange went a little something like this:
"Ma'am, please read the eye chart on the wall."
"I - C-A-N-T - S-E-E - I-T"
"Ma'am, you have astigmatism and you are near-sighted."
"Oh-no," I explained, thinking on the inside "yes, yes yes!"
Despite the medical misfortune of my bad eyesight, there was a silver lining: fashion glasses!
A few weeks ago, Firmoo, a popular online eyeglasses store offered to send me a pair of glasses to review. I went online, flipped through several hundred pairs of glasses, finally settling on the pair I wanted.
I wanted to go dork. Not dorky/cute librarian but MIT Computer Science, Apple computer heyday, I was born in the 80's and got stuck dork!
What can I say besides.... nailed it!
Let me tell you a little more about my experience with Firmoo. Besides the great selection of eyewear at excellent prices, their website is set up to help you find the best pair for you. Firmoo has an app where you can upload a photo of yourself and try on the glasses virtually. Firmoo include photos of real customers wearing the glasses. These were incredibly helpful in my decision to make the dorkiest selection of eyeglasses possible. See above for proof!
Best of all, Firmoo launched an amazing program offering free eyewear to first time buyers. You just have to pick up the shipping cost. There's no catch or gimmick and I've already recommended Firmoo to several friends and coworkers, several of which took advantage of the program.
Thanks again, Firmoo, for the glasses. I love dorking out in them!
