Ordering Glasses Online with Firmoo. Review and Competition.
I have been wearing glasses since I was 13. I got them as I was struggling to see the blackboard in school from the back of the class where I used to hide out so no one could see me. I started off with -0.5 ish prescriptions for shortsightedness and now over 20 years later I have to wear them all the time with one of my eyes needing a -3.25 prescription.
Every year or two I head off to the opticians for my test then spend forever trying new ones on, debating the cost, cursing the fact that every single pair you like are way out of your price range, like way, way out. That’s just what happens isn’t it. It doesn’t have to be though does it. Have you ever thought of buying prescription glasses online? I have toyed with idea but never actually gone through with it. I got as far as getting my current prescription off my optician at my last test but I was always too scared to go through with it, you know in case I got it wrong. Then Firmoo got in touch and so began my process of ordering glasses online with Firmoo. How hard could it be?
Turns out not very. In fact it was ridiculously easy to do, the hardest part was actually narrowing down the frames I wanted. Did I want the same style, or completely different? Plain or patterned? Should I get prescription sunglasses? I’ve never been great at picking my own glasses but I wasn’t asking Olivia for help, I would of ended up with some candy pink frames adorned with rainbows and unicorns! Not literally but you get the jist. Before we go any further let me tell you a little bit about Firmoo.

How does ordering glasses online with Firmoo work? The first step is the hardest. Actually choosing some frames. They have a great selection to choose from. Make sure you have your current glasses and a tape measure to hand when choosing your frame. Why not have a little look at some of these picks below just 5 from over 300 different styles from men’s, women’s and unisex.

I ended up choosing number 5 how cute is the little dragon on side please! I nearly went with 3 but I think I made the right decision. Now to make sure they suit your face you can click on the ‘try on’ tab to open up pictures to test them out on, you can even upload your own picture should there not be one similar to your face shape using a picture you already have or your webcam. The next part is where you will need your glasses and a tape measure as the bottom of the page has all the size details of your chosen pair of glasses to match up for size. The ones I picked came up slightly smaller however I like them to be snug on my face and you wouldn’t want them arriving too big and sliding down your nose would you!
Once you are happy with your choice and have made sure they are the right size you just click the blue button on the top right hand side ‘select lenses’ and add in the type of lenses you need. This is where you enter your prescription should you need one. You can buy without prescription lenses too if you don’t need them. Just follow the instructions and match up the correct figures off your prescription and enter them in the corresponding places on the site.
And that is pretty much it. I hope my examples help to show exactly how easy it is! As long as you make sure you have the exact measurements for your face you can’t go wrong!
My Thoughts. First off I love the prices, no more forking out near on £100 for a new pair of specs every year. The whole process is super easy and I loved the try on feature so I could actually get to see the frames on my face. There is such a wide selection too you have plenty to choose from. There are so many hints and tips to make sure you get everything exactly right first time. The whole process is quick and the site is easy to navigate, even I could do it! They were delivered in 11 days as well. In an opticians you usually have to wait a few days anyway to have your prescription made up and fitted into your chosen frames so I was impressed at how quick they actually arrived. A quite note to bear in mind. Glasses are made after 24 hours so any changes need to be made within 6 hours of placing your order as none can be accepted after that time frame has passed. I managed to order some pretty cute frames that I can actually see out of all by myself, want to see?
Just in case you are worried about any repairs, Firmoo give you the super handy little glasses screwdriver how good is that! Usually these things are never around when you need them. This solves any re-tightening issues that would have you scurrying back to the opticians. All bases covered, well except for major damage anyway so just don’t break them. Saying that they are so affordable you wouldn’t mind just ordering another pair anyway.
Whatcha’ think, I am pretty pleased with myself! Thanks Firmoo! Just to clarify I received a free pair of glasses to try out the site and ordering process and to write a review about how I found it. All my thoughts and opinions on this service are honest and based on my experiences and at no time was I asked to produce a positive review.
