Review & Giveaway ~ Eyebuydirect.com

I started wearing glasses in middle school. I have to be honest, I hate wearing glasses. Especially now, my prescription is rather high, -7.75 on each eye making the lenses pretty thick unless I spend a fortune for upgrades.

When I was given the chance to review glasses for Family Review Network from Eyebuydirect.com, I was thrilled! Our insurance does cover glasses, but we only have 2 trays worth of glasses to pick from and they aren't the greatest. Since I mainly wear contacts, I hate spending money on glasses!

EyeBuyDirect.com is the world's leading online optical retailer offering full prescription glasses for as little as $7.95.

Their vision is "to empower vision for anyone, anywhere".

Forbes magazine recently dubbed EyeBuyDirect as "an efficient and easy-to-use prescription eyeglasses site, that provides fashionable, quality eyeglass frames and prescription lenses starting at only $7.95; significantly lower than the leading eyeglass chains".

I ended up selecting the Anna Titanium glasses in burgundy. This isn't my normal style, Allie (my tween) and my husband talked me into this frame. I normally go for frames like the Cat which look a lot like my current pair from my eye doctor that cost way more then $34.95! Anyway, I am so glad they talked me into the Anna, I absolutely love this style!

Not only that, but the titanium frame is so lightweight. I can hardly feel them when wearing them. I also did the ultra thin upgrade which I am so thankful for. These lenses are thinner then I have had in YEARS!

The order process was so easy. I ran up to my eye doctor to get a copy of prescription. Then I selected my frames, input my prescription and that was it. Eyebuydirect.com tells you everything you need, there is even place for notes if you want to add any information. I chose to do my order online, but you can also call. Then you just fax in your prescription and wait for your glasses to be made.

The site is super easy to navigate with tons of categories. There is also information on how to read your prescription in case you aren't sure. The hardest part was measuring the distance from my pupils. My doctor would not give me that info, so I had to do it at home. My glasses work great, so I think I did it correctly :)

Win it:

One lucky reader will win a pair of glasses of their choice (not including sunglasses or designer frames) from EyeBuyDirect.com.

How to Enter:

Visit EyeBuyDirect.Com and browse their huge selection of frames, then come back here and tell me which ones you like best.

Extra Entries (leave a separate comment for each):

Contest will end on March 5th 11:59 pm. Upon confirmation of winner, you will be emailed a coupon code to be used. Contest is open to US and Canadian residents. US residents will also receive free shipping, Canadian residents will have to pay shipping.

Congrats to ~

I like the Parsley glasses :) You're not alone with the huge prescriptions (I'm -6.75 right now). My glasses suck because the arms are too tight, and are nonadjustable so I get major headaches. Getting a new pair would be awesome. Thanks for the chance to win!

It would be such a blessing to win these! I need new glasses badly (the pair I have now is 8+ years old), but with our first baby on the way it's hard to find the money. It's hard to pick a favorite frame, but I like Donna - Brown / Copper - Fashion Eyeglasses (couldn't find the style number). Thanks so much!
