Prescription Glasses for Less


As a writer, I am always at the computer. Years ago, I noticed the strain on my eyes presenting as headaches by the end of the day. Turns out, I need glasses to ease the strain caused by my astigmatism. For twelve years now I have been buying glasses every few years to update my prescription as well as my look. But, spending near $300 on the exam and the frames certainly does not give me the warm and fuzzies. Then I discovered Firmoo.com.

Firmoo.com is an online distributor of prescription glasses with prices ranging from $8 – $70 with free shipping on orders over $39! The site itself is very well-organized ensuring that your selection and shopping process is hassle-free.  Frames are categorized as Men’s, Women’s, Designer, RX Sunglasses and Specialty Eyewear. Each section is broken down by the shape of the frames to make finding a set that suits you even simpler.

Why so inexpensive?

Prices are competitive because the online store is free from the overhead and expenses incurred with a traditional storefront. And, they purchase lenses, frames and other accessories directly from manufacturers.

How to order?

Ordering your glasses online can be done in a few simple steps and is processed in a secure payment environment:

  1. Select your frames
  2. Choose the purpose of your glasses
  3. Fill in your prescription and make lens selection
  4. Proceed with checkout and payment

My experience

As soon as I had my prescription in hand (I requested a copy from my optometrist), I placed my order within minutes and received my frames in 10 days! The process was painless. I am very pleased with the frames I received. The prescription is accurate and the frames are fashionable. Actually, I have been wearing them exclusively and have all but forgotten my old pair.
