I’ve been wearing glasses for 18 years (gosh, I feel old working that out!) and I actually really like wearing them. I had a brief summer fling with contact lenses during my early twenties, but other than that, I’ve been a glasses girl all the way!
- They give me a chance to change my appearance / look when I feel like it
- They draw attention to my eyes (and away from my nose!)
- They hide the bags under my eyes (!)
Have you ever bought your glasses online, though? I have to confess that, although I do 95% of my shopping over the internet, I’ve never ordered glasses from a website. I’ve always been put off by the thought of not being able to try them on before buying.
However, I recently discovered Perfect Glasses. They’re an online prescription glasses retailer, specialising in adult glasses, and they’ve come up with an ingenious solution. All you have to do is take a quick snap of yourself with your webcam (or upload a photo you already have) and suddenly, you can try on any of their fantastic glasses you like!
There are detailed measurements of all the glasses so you can compare the dimensions to your current ones. You can also select whether you have a broad, average, or narrow face.
That’s the technical stuff out of the way. Now comes the fun bit – choosing your glasses! Perfect Glasses stock a really wide range of frames and have some great advice about which face shapes suit which style. There are over 1000 styles to choose from.
I had so much fun “trying on” the glasses (and yes Hubby and I got a bit silly and tried on glasses that were way too cool for us… but nobody saw so it’s okay!) It was really easy to do and it meant that I felt really confident when I needed to make my decision.
What really surprised me was the price – with the current 50% sale on, you can buy your glasses online for just £9! That includes the scratch-resistant coating and lenses created to your exact prescription.
Perfect Glasses also stock a lot of designer brands, including Gucci, Marc Jacobs and their fab Hugo Boss Collection. These (along with all the other glasses on the site) can also be ordered prescription-free if you just want them for fashion purposes.
Perfect Glasses is also a great place to buy your prescription sunglasses. As well as stocking an extensive range of sunglasses, you can also customise the regular glasses by adding tints or transition lenses.
In all honesty, I regret that I’ve only discovered Perfect Glasses 18 years into my glasses-wearing-journey! The glasses that we ordered look absolutely fab (as I knew they would from the photo software). But they also feel really good quality too, even though they’re so much cheaper than high street glasses.
The prescription is spot on and I was able to start wearing them straight away without any issues. I was also pleased that the glasses arrived wrapped in foam (as well as a hard glasses case) so that they weren’t damaged at all in transit.
I will definitely be promoting this service to my own friends and family, and if you’d like to buy your own, the URL is:
