39DollarGlasses: The Best Pair of Glasses I've Owned - Review & Giveaway!


Do you wear glasses? I've worn them since grade school, and I always enjoy looking for a new pair. I was in need of a new pair of glasses, but every optical store in my neighborhood charge an arm and a leg for something that looks half decent. I decided to venture online on a mission to find a funky design, that was actually affordable. I came across a website called 39DollarGlasses.com.


I have to admit, I was originally hesitating on buying glasses from online. How do you know that they will look good for your face shape? How do you know if the quality is as good as they say? Well I decided to take a chance and search. They have a wide range of glasses from metal frames, plastic frames, rimless eyeglasses, semi-rimless, bendable titanium frames, kids glasses, bifocals, progressive lenses, sunglasses and you even have a choice if you want to use your own frame.

When you find a pair of glasses you find attractive, you have the option to check if they would match your face shape. There's a tool on the right column of their website, that lets you select the appropriate face shape for either male or female. I found that to be very helpful in making my decision. I have a round face, and have always had trouble finding proper fitting glasses. Well, 39DollarGlasses.com has helped solve that problem for me, and will be my "go to" place from now on.

The item that I chose for review: Sofia Plastic glasses in the color blue. I fell in love with the design from the moment I saw them on the screen. I liked that there was an option in colors, and that it was meant for my round face shape. The glasses I chose ended up costing $132, and that included the ultra thin lenses that had to be custom made since I have a high prescription. No where can you get a pair of stylish glasses with ultra thin, super light lenses for that price. I'm amazed that I can barely feel them on my nose. Every pair of glasses that I've had in the past always left indents on my nose, due to the heavier weight of my prescription.


Prior to shipping, each pair of eyeglasses or prescription sunglasses are inspected by a certified technician to ensure the accuracy of the prescription and proper alignment of the frame. Further, they are packaged in an attractive, durable hard case for protection. They unconditionally guarantee all their frames and lenses to be delivered exactly as they were ordered and free of defects.

I also received a complimentary gift... a small pouch that contained a cleaning cloth, and a tool to fix your glasses if the screw is loose or falls out. The small pouch is actually converted into a key-chain, which is perfect for every day use. I love this idea! I would have bought one of those long time ago if I had seen it.
