I was fortunate enough to receive glasses from Firmoo a global optical store that sells glasses on-line to review. I went through the whole process of picking out the glasses that I wanted, to placing the order, and of course receiving my order in the mail. Let me give you my highlights and a few glitches that happened along the way…then you’ll be rewarded with a big pimpin” picture of me in my glasses that is sure to make you laugh.
Ordering glasses on-line is still a new concept to me. I remember the first time I went to the eye doctor and then had to get glasses, I was in high school and was pretty nervous that I would now be the girl with the glasses. I was only allowed to pick out a pair of glasses from the cheap rack, so my first pair of glasses were a gold pair with nose guards. I wore them as little as possible. Now a days glasses are definitely an accessory- they can be fun, funky, alternative, serious, or dare I say even flirty? Ordering on-line from Firmoo is pretty fun because those cute glasses you want also happen to be on the “cheap rack” so you can order one or multiple pairs of glasses.
I picked out a pair of fun prescription sunglasses and placed my order. I had to scan my prescription and send it in by e-mail. Luckily I knew were it was and it was up to date. I thought I was all set, but then I received an e-mail from Firmoo letting me know that my prescription did not include my PD (pupil distance)…huh? After some confusion the staff at Firmoo send me a chart that showed me how I could measure my own PD. I ended up eventually getting it right- but this took some time! If you plan to order glasses on-line and you are going to your eye doctor appointment I suggest you ask them to include this on the prescription..to save you some time and to get an accurate reading for your future orders… I think mine is a little off.
The glasses arrived by international post … I was not expecting this so when I received a notice from the post office I did not pay much attention to it..oops! Luckily the staff at Firmoo e-mailed me to let me know that they had notice that the glasses were being held at the post office. The staff e-mailed me a few times reminding me to go pick-em up, and I kept having competing priorities and putting it off. The last e-mail from Firmoo let me know I better go get em”- it said in plain English your glasses will be sent back to us if you do not go get them! So I went and got em”. I LOVE THEM!
They are so hip and I love having prescription sunglasses again. It is so great to be able to see when I am out and about. I wore them at a baseball game yesterday and I was able to watch the whole game. I usually have to decide glasses or non-prescription sunglasses.
I would recommend checking out Firmoo, but make sure you have your prescription and PD (pupil distance) and make sure you check your mail box for any missed mail deliveries.
Here’s my very hip, big pimpin” picture…coolest mom on the playground? heck ya”
