When I was told I had to wear glasses I was very upset. Of course I was a child in second grade and I thought my life was over because everyone would make fun of me. I hated to wear them and took them off every chance I got. I remember breaking them on more than one occasion as well.  I got contacts as soon as possibly could to avoid being the nerd with glasses.

A LOT has changed since I was a child in second grade. Glasses have become cool, fun, novelty items. Every year the frames get cuter and cuter and I have hard time picking out just one pair. I primarily wear contacts but I need backup glasses to wear in the evening and on those allergy days that I just can't wear my contacts. So when glassesshop.com contacted me to work with them I was very excited.

I have to say even though they had a LOT of cute frames to pick from, I did not have a hard time picking out a pair I loved.  The one I chose was perfect for me because it was super cute with Roses on it. I love roses because my grandmother's name is Rose and she collected anything with roses on it.

So that is where I got my love of roses from. So I got my prescription from my doctor and that was super easy. If you have never ordered glasses on-line all you do is call the doctor and they will write down everything you need to order glasses in your current prescription.

They were shipped in a cute little case. They were wrapped in a cleaning clothes so the lenses were protected from getting scratched during shipment.

I have an EXTREMELY high powered prescription and my lenses are very thick if I don't get that special polycarbinated material. So after I ordered my glasses I wondered if I would get some very heavy, thick lenses in this cute little frame.

But I did not get that, I actually got the opposite.  I was very surprised how lightweight my glasses are. I had a pair from my doctor that were too heavy to wear so I hardly ever used them unless extremely necessary. These frames are tiny yet fit my face perfectly. The lenses are not visible at all even around the rim of the frames, which is pretty thin. That impressed me because sometimes the ones from my eye doctor won't  look that neat and flushed with the rim.

I can't express how much I love these little frames. I find myself wearing them a lot more often than I used to wear my other glasses. The best part is glassesshop.com has the most affordable prices I have ever seen. Even with insurance I don't get such a great deal when I order glasses and they pay for the frames! Imagine that. I will order from glassesshop.com next year when I get a new prescription ( yes it changes every year). I looked at a fraction of the frames and I have a few more in mind for next time.

glasseshop.com is a great place to pick up a spare pair of discount glasses to keep in your purse or desk for contact wearers. It's also a great place to pick up a spare pair because you NEVER know when one of the lenses, a screw, or nose pad will pop off your current pair.  Don't wear prescription glasses? You're not left out glassesshop.com offers a wide selection of awesome sunglasses as well.

GlassShop is offering my readers 20% off their already extremely low prices. Just use code AmberBX20 at checkout.
