Get on with it. As I would by now be shouting.Firmoo.com offered me a pair of prescription glasses and a pair of non prescription sunglasses for a bit of publicity. Well, you know already that I have glasses on my workdesk, and in my handbag, and on my bedside table..because you know that I am a 'lady' of a certain age. That age also makes me a bit cynical about these things, so I did actually do a bit of research before deciding that yes, I'd like to take part. Firmoo.com have a HUGE website. Well, it's probably not HUGE, because it's perfectly navigable..but it shows hundred of pairs of frames in sensible classifications, and better still, they have this fun gadget which allows you to upload a photo of yourself to try the frames on! Cool. And very, very silly if you're me and Miss Dunnit. Loved it.
I can't pretend that getting my Optical prescription and entering the numbers was difficult; the website makes it all clear and makes allowances for international differences in Prescription (some offer two sets of digits as an answer to one of the questions, for example) so there was never any thought in my mind that I was entering any mis-information that might cost me in the long run. Although I did stay dubious, I must be entirely honest. I've never bought prescription anything on line. Good grief, I've never even bought ahem,
|I can't smile - there was too much else to think about!|
Here's one of the main points though: the prescription glasses would have been about £40 and the sunglasses more, at about £45 because they're so damn trendy, excluding delivery. I can't fault them in terms of the prescription and fit. If you are aren't familiar with buying glasses, let me tell you that this price represents at least 150% less than I last paid on the High Street. Wow.
