5 Really Awesome Things about Glasses USA

So here’s the story behind this post… most of the time, I try to keep my review posts to super relevant products and services like blog design or Hershey Kisses. Desserts and designs. That’s me.

When contacted me about reviewing a pair of their prescription glasses on Something Swanky, I thought “nah… not my type!” But as my finger hovered over the mouse, ready to click delete, a little voice in the back of my head said, “Oh, but honey! Youneed some new glasses.”

(My old pair has been toddler damaged and self-repaired about 47 times. No bueno.)

I decided I’d take a look around before saying no in haste. And I am so very glad I did! There are lots of things I love about the site, the selection, and my new eyeglasses, but I’ve narrowed it down to 5 really awesome things about GlassesUSA:

1) I love the browsing categories! They make it super easy to find the style and the price you’re looking for. I especially love that there’s actually a category for “nerdy” glasses. How awesome?? I knew I wanted something a little funky (compared to the rest of my toddler-mom wardrobe), but something I’d be comfortable wearing out and about. Ironically, the “Nerdy” glasses were exactly what I was looking for! SO CUTE.


2) I love the “Deals of the Week” selection. It made finding a pair of glasses priced within my budget an absolute cinch. And it’s not like there were just one or two frames to choose from– there were tons!

3) I love the new share-able Virtual Mirror Feature! You can totally get an idea of what they’ll look like on you just by uploading a picture of yourself or using a webcam! …I may or may not have tried on a few dozen pairs. While sticking my tongue out. And giving myself bunny ears.


You can try it out for yourself right here! Just start by clicking on your gender…

Wasn’t that fun??

4) I love how simple the ordering process is. Just have your prescription handy, and you’ll be done in a jiff!

5) I love how cute my frames are!! In fact, when my little brother saw me wearing them, he asked if I was going to start trying to be a little more trendy now?


Nothing like a little brother to remind you how totally “not with it” and “uncool” you really are. Thank heavens for my new trendy glasses! Apparently, they’re rescuing me from my current non-trendy-toddler-mom look. Ironic for frames labeled “nerdy.” Yes?

Speaking of nerdy… I’ve got a Nook full of The Hunger Games and a pile of Candy Cane Hershey Kisses waiting for me. So, I’m off to take care of that, if you don’t mind. ;)

    Your new glasses are adorable. Now I’m a little bit upset that I didn’t know about this before I bought my new glasses.

    You are SO cute! I get SO excited to get my new glasses each year through my mom’s insurance (eek, I can only do this for one more year–sad face). I love how glasses can totally change your look. Even though I normally dress really costume-y and funky, I still love my funky frames and am always hunting for a new statement-piece. If you have to be blind, you may as well look good, right?
