Being as blind as a bat and slightly vain I didn’t start wearing glasses properly until my early twenties (I would rarely wear them at school despite having a pair tucked away at the bottom of my bag) - which made having to read number plates outside my driving test centre that little bit more interesting. I had to memorise the plates before going in so that I could dazzle the tester before we set off. Looking back (no pun intended) I was a danger to everyone on the roads for years (yet didn’t have a crash).
My previous pair of handmade frames look a bit tired and the pair of Moschino frames had been bent so far out of shape they made my face look lopsided. Not wanting to look like I’d had a stroke a replacement was needed and I decided to take a leap for a new size and style.
This is what they say about Firmoo over at their website here:
‘Vision – An ideal pair of prescription glasses as a half medical tool to correct vision should be made up of a quality frame and lenses with accurate prescription. We promise all our eyeglasses frames are of high quality. Besides, all eyewear provided by us goes through strict inspection by our experienced opticians before shipping to ensure the accuracy of lens prescription. That’s why we are able to pass savings to our valued customers. Fashion – We offer classic and fashion glasses frames for you to choose from. All of these frames which are quite popular in the world are elaborately picked by our staff from thousands of frames in the market. Frugal way – Our prescription eyeglasses are inexpensive even though with high quality, therefore, everyone can afford it.’
Scrolling through the various types of eyewear available I was mildly impressed with the variety on offer, but the most striking aspect of selecting my frames for me was the cost. Every pair of frames I came across was so cheap it would seem rude not to pick up a pair. As you can see from the photographs above, the frames look the part (feel free to disagree but I will hunt you down) and they cost under £20. Yes, under £20 for a pair of frames and under £100 when you throw in the cost of the lenses.
After making my selection I was really pleased that I could upload a photograph of my face (without the PC screen cracking) and see what they would look like on my face. Perfect.
The process of inputting my prescription was really easy, and with my complete lack of ophthalmic knowledge was incredibly grateful for the help function that explained what needed to be input where. The fact that I had to wander off to the restrooms at work with a transparent ruler to measure the distance between my pupils wasn’t strange at all - no, not strange at all……..
A week after ordering and the glasses landed on the mat - with a lovely case, a cloth to keep them clean and more importantly the frames looking the business I was happy - very happy.
They fit perfectly, the lenses help my eyes adjust and everything has perfect clarity. Exactly what you want your glasses to do.
When you consider the range of frames and lenses on offer, the fact that they are incredibly affordable and home delivery option I can’t see myself coming offline and ever going back to a high street optician. The final cost (had they not been free) would equate to around a third of the amount I usually spend on frames and lenses and they look as good, if not better. I’m delighted with my new glasses and they have had a number of compliments (from those who have noticed the change) which is precisely what an ego-maniac like myself is looking for. What I lack in sex appeal I more than make up for with specs appeal.
