Firmoo: Global Online Optical Store (Review and Giveaway!)

One thing you, my lovely readers, may not be aware of - or may be confused about - is that I wear glasses.  Most of the images on my blog show me wearing my lovely Vera Bradley glasses, although my main photo (see me in the green dress in the right sidebar?) was taken while I was wearing contacts.



My entire family actually wears glasses, contacts, or a combination.  That adds up to a good deal of money in eye doctor appointments, prescriptions, and new glasses - lens and frames - and contacts.  So when Firmoo, an international online glasses company, approached me about a review and giveaway, of course I said yes!

Now, I am very much in love with my expensive floral Vera Bradley frames.  However, my youngest brother needed new glasses - desperately.  So I showed him the frames available on Firmoo and put through an order for his favorite!  Ordering was really easy on Firmoo's part.  (I had never ordered glasses before - Mom usually does that - so I had to figure out how to read the prescription paper first.  That bit took me a while, but Firmoo's pages with explanations and definitions were so very helpful!)  I was very surprised with the prices, too - glasses frames from the physical shops my family uses are many times Firmoo prices!

Firmoo does its best to help customers with their shopping with their virtual try-on tool.  This tool allows you to see any of their frames on the face of any of their eight models, or even upload your own photo to see how they'll look on you!  Have any questions while shopping?  Just visit the help page!


It took a little while for my order to be processed and for me to receive the email stating the order had shipped.  However, once shipped, the glasses got here very quickly!  They even came with a soft and hard black case, blue cleaning cloth, and mini key chain screwdriver with extra screws.  Personally, even though they're Nick's glasses, I love them.  I tried them on myself!  (I may look odd, because I couldn't see anything and my eyes were kinda squinty.  Nick and I have very different prescriptions...)


Nick loves the color and says they're comfortable, although he also says they're "huge!" and they "definitely change my appearance!"  He really likes the change from the metal nose pieces with rubber pads to the all-plastic nose pieces.  I love they look with his haircut and face shape!  What do you think?



Now, for my lovely readers, Firmoo has some goodies!  First things first: Firmoo has a First Pair Free program!  If you're a new customer to Firmoo - whether or not you've worn glasses before or bought them from a different company - your first Firmoo order is free!  You just pay shipping and handling.

Here's what Firmoo has to say about their First Pair Free program:
This program expresses our doctrine “Fashion and Vision the frugal way”.  Every new customer can get their first pair free. This free eye wear includes a unique selection of styles from geek chic to business casual, the creative design - from crystal details in the laterals to stripe at the front of the frame - carefully selected based on fashion trends and feedback from our customers. Moreover, Firmoo.com has become the most popular online retailer of eyeglasses by offering an alternative method of purchasing eye wear online, and supplying you with the same high-quality eye wear offered in brick-and-mortar store for half the price because Firmoo's low overhead allows us to offer frames directly to consumers.
Firmoo's not just for people who need glasses, either.  You can buy nonprescription glasses - reading or fashion - sunglasses, and even goggles!  They really do have something for everyone.

On to the giveaway!  Firmoo has offered to run a giveaway of six $30 off designer glasses coupons.  You may possibly be able to win a free pair of any non-designer glasses in their store (excluding sunglasses; you can get tinted lenses with regular frames, though) if more than 30 entries are received!

  1. Hey Emily!

    Another site were you can get really good glasses is called Zenni Optical. Here you can get prescription glasses for $30 or less. You can select the rims and the shape, etc. My sister bought two pairs of prescription glasses for $46 dollars! Now that's a good deal compared to the eye doctor where you would have to be get them for about $150 or more.
    If you want to check it out...go to this website!
