I was recently contacted by a company called Firmoo who offer high quality, inexpensive prescription and non-prescription eye-wear and asked to take a look at their site and choose a pair of sunglasses to review.
I hadn't heard of the company before so I did my research and I was happy to see that they not only offer international shipping to a huge range of countries, but shipping is free if your order total is over $39. They also offer a great service that entitles every new customer to a free pair of glasses. You can read more about the free glasses here.
Firmoo aspires to provide "Vision and Fashion the Frugal Way", which the way things are now should be the way more companies are thinking if they want to encourage sales and is why the free glasses for first time buyers is such a good idea. Everyone is looking for good quality at the lowest price available and their frames start at under $10, you can also play around with trying the glasses on virtually by uploading a photo of yourself to see whether they would suit you or not as I know it's tough when you're buying online to know if you'll like something if you can't try it on first.
Here are the sunglasses I chose;
The sunglasses arrived 6 working days after I placed my order which is very fast for international delivery. Shipping to Ireland and the UK is a flat fee of $15.75 (€12/£9.70 approx.) which is an express courier service so you know your item is secure as you can keep track of it and you have to sign for it upon arrival. As you can see above they come in a hard, sturdy case with a cute map of Canada on it. You also get replacement screws and other bits to keep your glasses in working order.
I chose these round ones because I don't own anything like them and I wanted to try something a bit different. I am honestly so impressed by the quality and feel of these. I wasn't too sure about them when I chose them but once I put them on I was totally enamoured! I've been wearing them every day since I got them. They retail at $42 (€32/ £25) which for the quality is such a great price. They also come in black but unfortunately I can't see them on the website anymore. I'd love to see more styles of sunglasses on their site as they don't have a huge selection at the moment but I'll definitely by recommending Firmoo to anyone I know who is in the market for some prescription frames.
They also have a Facebook page where you can find out the latest news from them.
Would you buy glasses online or have you before? I'd love to know what you think!
