I have been practically blind since childhood so glasses have always been a part in my life. To this day my eyes just straight out suck & it's even noted on my drivers license. Yup, that's right, I'm legally blind without my glasses on lol. For all of you that watch me on periscope, it's probably all starting to make sense to you now why I always have my face basically planted on my phone screen when reading your comments ;-) I CAN'T SEE ANYTHING lol.....
Unfortunately for me glasses were also the reason I was bullied and picked on in preschool and kindergarten. I didn't have a single friend because I had bad eyesight :-/ Kids can be so cruel! Thankfully for me, once I got into first and second grade & school eye exams started to happen annually, some of those mean kids ended up becoming a four eyes themselves. The bullying stopped and I was finally able to have friends in school since glasses were more accepted since other people were rocking them too. I will never forget those few lonely years though & really think that's why I'm beyond nice to everyone to this day. The world needs more nice people.
Being a girl who has worn glasses since she can remember, I can tell you how costly it really can be for parents. Let's be honest here, even the most cautious kiddo will break there frames, scratch there lenses or even lose there glasses all together at some point! It just happened & there is no way to really avoid it.
Thankfully in this day in age parents have the option of buying glasses online! You're probably thinking well what's the difference between online or going to a store itself? Well read below to see the top 7 reasons you really should start doing your glasses shopping online!
1. A complete pair of glasses from GlassesUSA.com starts at only $48 w/ lenses and that’s before any coupon discounts!!!!
The last pair of glasses I purchased ended up costing me around $400!!! Crazy, I tell you. Just crazy. Whether you're shopping for yourself or for your kiddo $48 is just a steal. You can now buy a pair of frames for your kiddo & not stress as much over what might happen to them. It's way easier to replace $48 than $400!!
2. Shopping online means you have a variety of different styles to choose from!
I'm not sure if it's because I live in the middle of no where, but when it comes to finding the pair of frames I want... Ughhhh.... Even as a little kid I was always big into reading fashion magazines, so I always what the in frames! Shopping online gives you that pretty much guarantee that you will find that pair of frames you saw in last months Vogue!
3. When you sign up with GlassesUSA.com, you receive 50% off the first pair
That's right folks, 50% off!!!! It's a no brainier that this is just a killer deal no matter who your shopping for! Nothing better than saving money!
4. GlassesUSA Customers can save up to 70% off retail prices!!!
Even after using your first time customer 50% off savings, you can STILL save a ton of money. The glasses are affordable and high quality!!!!
5. Since I just mentioned quality, let me just mention how GlassesUSA lenses are made by professional opticians at a in-house state of the art laboratory!
I know, by now you're probably thinking if the glasses are really this cheap they must be crap quality. Well let me just tell you now that there's no need to worry about the quality of the lenses when ordering from GlassesUSA.They offer the same quality as retail :):)
6. “Try on” any pair before you order!!
That's right, you heard me correctly!!! Worried you won’t look fabulous in the glasses you have your heart set on online? Just upload your photo and see what you look like with their virtual try-on set up.
7. Risk-free shopping EVERY TIME when shopping online with GlassesUSA.
What do I mean? They offer free shipping, returns, free exchanges, price match & 365 day product warranty. Needless to say, you’re covered!!!
So what do you think?!?! Will you be shopping online with GlassesUSA for you or your child's next pair of glasses?!?!

We all wear glasses in our house, so I am ALL for saving money on them. They can seriously add up!!
10/19/2015 04:29:57 pm
I love the idea of buying glasses online. I buy everything else online, so why not?
10/19/2015 06:19:59 pm
I wear contacts and have glasses as well. Sometimes I just need a few days of glasses, there is definitely a difference and I love wearing them. I've ordered online before and probably will again int he future.
10/19/2015 06:51:11 pm
I actually need glasses! I will look into them- I have always had a great online experience when shopping for glasses!
10/19/2015 07:27:18 pm
I totally understand where you were coming from. I have worn glasses since age 3 and I too have been picked on because of it. I tried glasses in university and realizes, If you don't like me in my glasses, i don't like you!
10/19/2015 07:53:45 pm
50% off your first pair is such a great offer. I will have to tell my sister about this because she is always breaking her glasses.
10/19/2015 08:17:54 pm
I have never thought to order glasses online. I don't need them yet, but it does sound like a great deal.
10/19/2015 08:54:41 pm
Ordering online is a great way to save some major dollars. Thanks for sharing
10/19/2015 09:39:51 pm
That is a great price! I have a nice pair of glasses now, but I hate when I am out and I have to put them into my purse. I am always afraid they are going to break or get scratched it would be great to have a back up pair :)
10/19/2015 10:18:17 pm
Ill have to try it.
10/19/2015 10:38:41 pm
I know how expensive the glasses are.. my kids wear them and it is insane, we stepped away from traditional stores and have found other alternatives.
10/19/2015 10:51:14 pm
I bought my sunglasses online for driving. It was simple to do.
10/19/2015 11:19:35 pm
Buying of glasses in onlines is great, you dont need to go to shop just to buy, but in online all you need to do is to go to their site. I think i need to buy new eye glasses.
10/19/2015 11:26:20 pm
I cannot survive without my glasses either! If I go out without them, people will think I'm weird or crazy because I can only see and read up close.
10/20/2015 12:41:10 am
I'd love to buy glasses online but my prescription is too hard to get anywhere but at the doctor. :(
10/20/2015 12:59:16 am
This is a GREAT deal! Thank you so much for sharing - I'm going to check them out now, and see which ones I want!
10/20/2015 02:25:26 am
I am sorry to hear that you were bullied for being blind it hurts to know that kids can be so cruel. I was bullied as a child too but now glasses are in fashion so you are on trend my friend! Hope those bullies can see where you are now.
10/20/2015 03:27:46 am
I didn't yet use glasses but these are a great tips for buying glasses online. I will pass this to my sister
10/20/2015 06:31:34 am
I have myopia or nearsightedness so I wear glasses. U have been wearing it for more thjn 20 years.
10/20/2015 09:19:38 am
These are some really good reasons for choosing to buy glasses online. I like the fact that you can virtually try on any pair of glasses that you want.
10/20/2015 09:43:20 am
I just recently got glasses myself. About a year ago is when I learned that I needed them for driving and reading mainly. I wear them all the time though. I always thought about getting them online, but never really looked in to it. I do love that they have a lot of options online.
10/20/2015 09:51:45 am
i rely on my glasses too much to take a chance on the online ordering.
10/20/2015 10:19:38 am
Kids can be so cruel! Luckily, many kids in my school wore glasses so it was kind of the norm.
10/20/2015 10:31:31 am
I actually JUST got a prescription after 27 years of perfect vision! :X Working at a computer has made my eyes forget how to see far away. ;) I'm so glad to hear about Glasses USA, I'll be checking them out!
No, that so sad about being picked on :( Little kids with glasses are so adorable, I can't even take it! There's a three year old with glasses in my son's gymnastics class and I literally want to eat him. He's too adorable. Anyhow, now is your time! Glasses are in! I was actually excited last year when I was told by my eye doctor that it was time for me to get glasses because I didn't want to be a vanity frame person, but I secretly really wanted a pair. There are some great styles featured in this post!

I have two pairs of glasses from GlassesUSA. I paid under $100 for both (one regular and one sun). I love them!!! I paid over $300 for the pair I had before and I hated them from the minute I got them. I had them adjusted multiple times and they still hurt my nose. Will only buy from Glasses USA now!
10/20/2015 11:43:07 am
I can relate. Glasses can be too costly. $48 is definitely a steal. I'm heading there to get a pair.
10/20/2015 11:49:54 am
I started to use reading glasses last month. At 41, I can't hardly read the books.
10/20/2015 12:00:10 pm
Since having Lasik surgery, I put away the eyeglasses for a few years hopefully. I had worn them since second grade! Sounds like a great deal though. Your pictures were great!!
10/20/2015 02:03:17 pm
I can't believe you can get glasses for as low as $48. I have to check this out.
10/20/2015 03:48:17 pm
I wear that last kind to pass out candy trick or treating, hahaha I wear the other kind to drive. ;)
10/20/2015 04:01:15 pm
I have been wearing glasses since i was a teenager. I love to have a few styles so i can change up my look. I will have to check this site out for my next pair.
10/20/2015 04:40:10 pm
I love glasses! I tried contacts for a bit but they annoyed me to much. My husband is an optician, do I'm lucky to get a variety of frames. Although he's not big on online glasses companies, I'm glad you found a site you like and trust!
10/20/2015 05:42:15 pm
Yeah, I love glasses, I want to buy online soon. Thanks!
10/20/2015 06:18:17 pm
If we lived in the States my husband would love to buy his glasses online as well. In Canada new glasses cost a lot of money.
10/20/2015 07:55:51 pm
This is an Awesome post :) I have really wanted to look into buying online since the hubby and I BOTH wear pretty thick prescriptions and those get SUPER costly. Definitely going to look into ordering there :)
10/20/2015 08:54:51 pm
That's so neat you can upload your pic to see. I've had the same frames since forever. I dont have to wear my glasses too much so I dont really care too much about what they look like.
10/20/2015 11:07:25 pm
i had corrective eye surgery but my hubby still wears glasses and swears by them. I will look into it for him as he doesn't like going to stores to shop and this is so easy to do from the comforts of your home.
10/20/2015 11:32:45 pm
I don't wear glasses but I know many people are getting them to help them with using the computer.
10/21/2015 04:43:30 am
Honestly I never bought glasses online but you got me curious. And who doesn't love a good saving. :P
10/21/2015 09:12:27 am
Wow! Awesome deal! Especially with the 50% off your first order and the free shipping and all. I'm not really due for a new pair just yet but with those prices, I think I'll be ordering this week! Thanks for the info!
10/21/2015 11:21:25 pm
Wow, that's a great deal! I've been wearing glasses for 10 years but I think I should have started before that. Glasses are so expensive!
10/21/2015 11:46:51 pm
Hmmm, this would be worth checking out, since both hubby and I wear glasses - and they have cost around $300-$400 a pair at the eye doctor's office!
10/22/2015 12:32:27 am
I haven't had a pair of new glasses in over 4 years. I think I'm seriously over due!
10/22/2015 03:12:22 pm
I remember my first pair of glasses. I must have been 10 or 11. They were HUGE and ugly and...PINK!!! LOL I hated them! I didn't wore them unless there was something that needed to be read from far far away. My sister once paid 300$ for a pair of glasses! That's just ridiculous in my opinion! The most I ever had to pay for glasses is 75$ ;) but 48$ is a GREAT deal!!! I love buying glasses online!
10/22/2015 09:47:48 pm
Yes, they're a lotto cheaper online besides the fact that it can be reimbursed by insurance companies anyway! Hassle free too. The last time I went to the store I ended up waiting for hours??! Imagine that. Here there's no 'line' and there's a great selection. :D
