My husband seems to go through sunglasses like Kim Kardashian goes through men...He will have a pair he loves, and then somehow they get broken or lost. It probably doesn't help that we have 2 curious preschoolers grabbing at them all the time!
So when I was asked to review some eyewear from Firmoo, an online optical store, I jumped at the chance. I hopped right onto their website and started looking around. They have a great selection of styles that will suit any facial shape and style. They even have a virtual try on system that allows you to place the glasses on your face to see how they would look. Pretty cool, right? After looking around for a good hour, I actually found a pair that Dan really, really loved!
Well, I was very excited about the perfect glasses we found, and then I learned that I could only select my review glasses from a very small list. This changed things in a big way....These were a decent selection, but nothing that my husband really liked, style wise. Ultimately, we ended up choosing these sunglasses.
They arrived rather quickly, especially considering they were sent from overseas. They included a nice case as well as a cleaning cloth and a little screwdriver.
The quality of the frames is pretty nice. They're a basic, plastic frame, but they're not at all flimsy. So if you like this style, I think you'd be pleased. My husband prefers wire framed glasses, so he wasn't too terribly crazy about these.
The quality of the lenses is also pretty good. They're not as clear as some I have seen, but for the price, they're definitely a great value. These are tinted lenses obviously, but they also come in clear lenses.
The glasses are constructed quite well and are very secure. They are also very comfortable to wear, as they rest over the ear perfectly.
I think these sunglasses actually look pretty nice on the hubby, even if they're not his typical style. The width of the glasses is perfect for his face, and I like the shape of these frames.
So while he's definitely not crazy about the appearance of these glasses, he does agree that they're well made. They do a great job taking the glare off of the road while he's driving. They're also quite comfortable, even during all day use.
Overall, I think that Firmoo is definitely worth trying if you're looking for quality prescription eyeglasses at a bargain price. They have so many great styles, and many come in trendy colors and shapes. You could literally buy a pair of glasses to match any outfit you may have! I think that if we had the opportunity to review the style we really liked, I would have had a better overall experience. Of course that won't matter if you're purchasing since your choices would not be limited in any way.
