Two years ago, I stepped into an optometrist's office for the first time ever in my adult life. A year into graduate school, I was experiencing troubles with night driving and getting headaches quite frequently. I finally relented to my husband's incessant pleas to get my vision checked.

I'd been hesitant to do this for quite a while because I always prided myself for having excellent vision. Everyone in my family wears glasses. Everyone. Even my second cousins wear them. So going to the eye doctor felt like I was throwing in the towel. Dramatic, I know.

Despite my (short-lived) disappointment upon learning that I needed specs, I was pleased to find out that glasses have evolved into becoming a mere necessity to a fashionable accessory. I now truly believe that having glasses is another opportunity to change up one's look, which is why I was thrilled to be contacted by GlassesUSA.com to review their site and glasses.

I absolutely love Glasses USA's motto that "Seeing properly shouldn't be luxury-- it should be a necessity." The first pair of glasses I bought from the optometrist cost me $300.00! At Glasses USA, they have fashionable eyeglasses that start just at $38.

The ordering process is very streamlined and easy. You can upload photos of yourself in order to see how the glasses look on you before purchasing them. They ship their products extremely fast! I got my prescription glasses in 5 business days. Speedy!

All in all, I was really happy about my experience with Glasses USA. These cat eye glasses I chose make me look sooo mischievous-- I adore them!

Right now, Glasses USA has quite a few promos, so please take advantage!

  7. I love that glass shape on you! I was actually all set in early January to get new specs (either through these guys or Warby Parker) and then I managed to break mine two days before I had to leave for a job interview out of state so I had to to the optometrist and buy a brand new pair there ($300 as well) so no new glasses for me for a while I'm afraid...

  9. Laura, I love those frames on you! They look so good. You've heard my story. I've been wearing glasses since 1st grade. It's when you get BILL that your pocketbook starts SCREAMing! hahaha I've had $300 - 1k dollar optometry bills. When I heard about GlassesUSA it was like an angel was sent from heaven. I didn't realize you could save so much money and not sacrifice fashionable frames. Great post and excellent review. I like kimtastic! You are so cool. Wishing you a wonderful day.

  13. Yeah, I know what you are talking about. All women in my family wear glasses, and my mom too. I wore glasses as a child, until 6 years old, then didn't have to anymore. But at 16, after a optometrist check with the school, there I went again to get a pair of glasses. Lucky me I had to wear them only when I focus on something: reading, watching screens and driving. Than last year, I had a check because I needed to change my scratch lenses, and there was what I always tried to avoid: I had to wear my glasses from then on all the time -noooooo hate that. I just had new lenses on my used (Ray Ban) frames, and it cost me $355!
    Now I bought a pair of prescription sunglasses (from Coach) and that was $262!! Glasses are so expensive...

    1. Glasses really can be expensive! Like you, I only need to wear my glasses when I drive or watch tv/movies. I definitely take them off whenever I can!

  20. The cat eyes look awesome on you! And I love the blue eye shadow :)

    I ended up getting glasses because whenever I worked on the computer at work it looked all blurry. SO got some funky specs, then my eyes always felt strained after wearing them. Turned out it was just the monitor on my pc that was blurry! Not my sight hahah. But I totally kept the glasses for when I wanted to look like a sexy secretary ^_^ haha

  21. I absolutely love the glasses. I wear glasses too and I have to admit, I almost always take my glasses off for pictures because I just prefer the way my face looks without them. I hate having to wear glasses everyday but fuzzy vision is no fun and I have yet to get a pair of contacts. My glasses were also about $300.00, which is absolutely ridiculous. I will have to check out this site, I need to update my prescription though, I think my vision has gone a little down hill recently. You look lovely, and I loove cat eye frames.

  31. Cat eyes look great on you! I've never ordered prescription glasses online before. Part of me wants to because I can never find what I want when I'm at the optometrist...

  32. I've worn glasses since I was a child so I can only imagine how it must feel to suddenly have to wear them as an adult. You look great in your pair! I haven't bought from this place you mentioned, but sounds like a great deal!
