As I mentioned the other day, I got some new glasses recently. I was given the opportunity to try out GlassesUSA.com and their online ordering system. I have one pair of glasses, but since I wear either glasses or contacts every waking minute of my life I thought it would be good to have a backup pair.
I have to admit that I was a little nervous about ordering glasses online. Like a good pair of jeans, they are just one of the items I like to try on before I decide. GlassesUSA must have read my mind though because they have this nifty little app that lets you virtually try on different pairs of prescription glasses! I found my backup pair in no time, but I will tell you the virtual mirror is addictive!

What I like about GlassesUSA.com
I found the service to be very intuitive and easy to use. The site is easy to navigate and a lot of fun when you use the virtual mirror! Here are a few of the highlights that I enjoyed while shopping for my new backup pair of glasses.
- Excellent selection of brands
- Price points for all budgets
- Virtual Mirror
- Quick and easy check-out
- Prompt shipping
What I would change about GlassesUSA.com
The only issue that I would change about this service is that the virtual try on application allows you to resize the frames to “fit” your picture. The problem of course is that you may choose a pair that is too small or too big for your face without realizing it. I chose the “Larry” frames and while I do like them, they are a little bit small for my face. This isn’t really an issue for me since they are my backup pair. But my suggestion is to measure a pair of eyeglasses that you already own and make sure the pair you order is a similar size to be sure of the fit.
And if for some reason you still end up with a pair that just doesn’t work for you, GlassesUSA has a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Pretty sweet.
Overall, the service is very convenient and a great way to get some good quality glasses for a great price whether they are your backup pair or the ones us use every day.
