Ever since being told the base curve of my eye is very steep and would need custom made contact lenses, I have been drawn more and more towards wearing glasses instead. My optometrist got me some yearly custom lenses which were so comfortable but eventually got incredibly drying on the eyes. Since then, I have been wearing glasses almost everyday which made me want to build up a collection of glasses. I was very surprisingly contacted by Firmoo Optical who asked if I wanted to try out a pair of glasses from them. It was beyond perfect timing as I had been looking at glasses for a very long time. Reviews online were really positive with correctly made prescription glasses, cheap frames and fast delivery. The glasses are between $23.99 to $39 USD which is very affordable with plenty of deals going on all the time such as 'Buy 1 get one 1 free', 'Free frames' and many discount codes going on at the same time.
As an asian with a non-existent nose bridge, purchasing glasses online without trying them on was scary. Lets just say, even when I walk into an optical shop to try on glasses, only about 20% of glasses fit my face and sit on my nose nicely without sliding off. So I spent a long time measuring my features, looking at the nose bridges and nose pads before finally selecting a pair of tortoise-shell glasses. After sending off my order and prescription, I was surprised by receiving the shipping notice just 2 days after and arriving at my doorstep only 3 days after shipping.
I am in love. It fits perfectly and the prescription was perfect. The nose bridge was really narrow which was absolutely god-sent for my Voldemort nose. The nose pads sits well and I love how well made the frames are, the top half is a tortoise colour and the bottom half is clear acetate. These have got to be my favourite pair of glasses at the moment and I am already back on the site, having a look at more frames to order to continue building my glasses collection. Since my private insurance have kicked it, I have also ordered three other pairs of glasses from Oscar Wylee and Clearly which I hope is also as amazing as these from Firmoo. In my next post, I will be posting my glasses collection!
Other glasses from Firmoo that I am planning on ordering soon (as you can see, I am a gold frame kind of gal):
