Review: Eyeglasses from Just Eyewear

As I previously mentioned on this blog, I haven't updated my eyeglasses in close to a decade. Possibly even longer than a decade. I'm really not sure.  So I was really, really excited when, thanks to my involvement at the Product Review Place, I got the opportunity to work with Just Eyewear on a review of prescription glasses.

Honestly, I was a little nervous about the idea of ordering glasses online, but I was very impressed by how easy the whole process was- and I love the glasses that I received!  I started out by reading the handy article on the Just Eyewear site called "How to Choose a Frame". It has lots of great tips and easy-to-follow instructions for choosing a frame that will look nice on your face. Just Eyewear also has other useful guides on their site with information on how to read your prescription, a video guide to ordering online, and more.

After reading the article on choosing the right frame,  I browsed the site- narrowing down the options by style and frame shape, then comparing my top choices and finally selecting the ones that I thought I would like best.  Just Eyewear has a nicely organized site and it was easy to narrow down my options to just what I was looking for. Prices for the glasses seemed really reasonable- according to the Just Eyewear website, you can save up to 90% by buying from their site as compared to buying from a traditional store! My final step was to  entered my prescription information and send in the order!

My glasses showed up in the mail shortly thereafter, in a nice, hard eyeglass case. I immediately put them on and both Daniel and I really liked them right away.

I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I combed my hair for the first time in three days before I took this picture.  We've been sick, and I had no motivation :)

I love my glasses and they fit well and are just what I wanted. But, if you order glasses from Just Eyewear and don't love them for some reason, you can return your glasses for a full refund.  So, if new eyeglasses are in your future, check out Just Eyewear!
