Tuesday 16 August 2016 Glasses Review

I remember the first time I realised I needed glasses, I was in secondary school squinting at what the teacher was trying to show us. From that day on glasses became a part of my life. When I was younger I hated wearing glasses, I would keep them in my bag and refuse to wear them. As time went on my eyes deteriorated further (probably where I was straining them). It was then that I knew I had to take care of my sight and eyes.

As soon as I could wear contact lenses I said goodbye to wearing glasses. I only wore my glasses around the house so I never really cared what they looked like as long as I could see through them. Recently as with most things, glasses have now become trendy (some people even go as far as wearing glasses with Plano lenses - meaning that they are dummy lenses with no prescription) and therefore juts using the frames as a fashion statement. As they have become so popular and stylish, more and more companies and brands have designed more frame and style options. Now I love to wear glasses as I am in love with the various styles available and the different looks you can achieve.

Recently I was kindly sent some glasses from and was asked to review the company and the glasses online I chose. I picked up these gorgeous tortoise shell frames called Clifford Wayfarer glasses. I sent over my current prescription and eagerly waited for them to be delivered. The company are based in the USA and the delivery was much quicker than I had expected. The outer case of the glasses case is made of a clear plastic with the branding of the company and inside came a cloth alongside the glasses. 

The glasses to me were as I had seen online, as I was worried they would look different from those advertised. Also because of my high prescription I was concerned the lenses would look too thick being half rimless. I find picking frames difficult as I like a large lens to correct my sight as when I can see around the rims of the frame it throws me off as everything becomes so blurry. That is why I was so impressed to try these glasses from as they are so comfortable and the prescription lenses are to my exact measurements. I think the lenses came out great on this pair despite my prescription and I love how chic they look. These glasses cost just $49.95 which is approx £38.29. It is so amazing that in today's world we have different options for our purchases and with online shopping being a preferred choice for many people. The cost of glasses can become very expensive for top brands or those you find in stores. Please don't get me wrong I believe it is very important to get an idea of your choice of frame by going into your local opticians to try on different styles of frames and getting regular eye checks. The disadvantage with online shopping only is that you do not have it in person to try on and get a feel for the product. However there are options for when purchasing glasses online such as uploading a picture of yourself so that the software allows you to try on the glasses, or seeing how it looks on the model. Plus you can always get a refund or return to exchange if you were really not happy with them. For me and for budget purposes online glasses are amazing and have a great range to choose from. Just see for yourself! They even have prescription sunglasses to choose from. 

My overall experience with them was brilliant and from the customer service to the product itself everything has been just wonderful. I now find myself wearing glasses more than ever. I'm sure if you are a glasses wearer yourself you know how difficult it can be to find a good pair that not only do you love but also that feel comfortable. I can be so picky but on this occasion I have been so happy with my choice. I would encourage you all to try these and to visit the site as from my experience it has been a pleasure. The prices are that good even if they are just going to be a spare pair then they are definitely worth it. With prices this good you can wear a different pair throughout the week to create different looks. I have received so many lovely compliments on these glasses and I can't wait to see what other styles that I can pick up from the site.
