GlassesShop.com – My Review
Disclaimer: For the purpose of this post I was sent a pair of sunglasses of my choice from GlassesShop.com in return for a fair and honest review.
Living in a country where the sun can shine pretty much everyday of the year (on a good year), you can forgive me for being a little obsessional about wearing sunglasses. Winter or summer I won’t leave the house without them. And it’s not unusual to see me with a pair of sunglasses perched on my head, long after the sun has gone down. After all we only have one pair of eyes!
So when I was contacted by GlassesShop.com and asked to do a review for them, I jumped at the chance. After all how handy is it to be able to buy a decent pair of glasses online? Whether it’s prescription glasses, prescription sunglasses, sunglasses or just fashion statement glasses you’re looking for GlassesShop.com has them all. Not being someone who enjoys actually going out and shopping, being able to buy sunglasses online is perfect for me.
Negotiating the site is simple enough. The menu is clearly categorized making it nice and easy to find what you are looking for. I was looking for a nice pair of non-prescription sunglasses and wasn’t disappointed with the selection. What I liked the most was being able to select the glasses frames of my choice, before customizing the glasses to how I wanted them.
Customizing The Glasses
Once I had selected the frames, I had fun customizing my sunglasses. The fact I could upload a photo of myself to ‘try on’ the glasses really tickled me. The frame measurements are given in the description, which is handy to know.
Being able to ‘try on’ the sunglasses appealed to me.
I selected a transparent, dark blue, wayfarer style frame, which I think suits most face shapes and is the style I tend to go for.
Next it was time to choose the lens. GlassesShop.com not only has a vast selection of frames to choose from, it also offers a decent choice of lenses.
I love these purple gradient lens, which look more blue in the photo.
I was also impressed by the different protective lens coatings GlassesShop.com have to offer for all their glasses. Which, apart from polarized lenses, is something I’ve never been offered in a shop before.
Receiving My Sunglasses
As GlassesShop.com is an American based company and I live on a Greek island, I did expect to wait a couple of weeks or more for delivery. But that didn’t happen. My sunglasses were with me well within two weeks of them being dispatched.
The glasses arrived well packaged and in a nice, sturdy case.
What can I say? Apart from I am not at all disappointed with the sunglasses. On picking them up I liked the weight of them, they didn’t feel light and flimsy, neither did they feel too heavy. I am so happy that I went for the gradient lenses too, as they protect my eyes from the suns brightness where it matters.
The case was nice and solid, giving the glasses plenty of protection.
I was pleasantly surprised by the look and the quality of the sunglasses.
All in all I can say that my shopping experience with GlassesShop.com was a pleasant one.
For anyone looking to purchase a pair of glasses from GlassesShop.com, there is a 50% discount. The discount applies to eyeglasses and sunglasses with free lenses (sale frames excluded) when using the code GSHOT50.
