After leaving behind my one pair of (old) glasses for the bazillionth time, I decided that I needed an extra pair (or three). Warby Parker was already on my radar, but then I remembered that I had seen a few optical companies had popped up recently that were offering a free pair. So after a second trip to the Warby Parker showroom in NYC and a quick Google search for "free glasses", I had three pairs on their way to my mailbox.
The Warby Parker glasses are definitely my favorite. I don't know if it's because they are the only pair that I tried on prior to purchasing them, or that I paid for them, but I love them the most nonetheless. (I most certainly will be headed back for these and these very soon. And possible these!)
These glasses from Firmoo.com are my second favorite, and they were free (for the most part). I love the contrasting stems (is that what they are even called?). What I don't love as much, is the thickness of the lenses. I am practically blind, and my lenses are very thick. Firmoo had several options for the "thinness" of the lens varying from $10-$90. I chose the cheapest version because I planned on these being a spare pair. Now that I have them, I really love the frames and wish I had splurged for thinner lenses.
I also love these glasses from Coastal.com, but I don't think they are quite as flattering on my face as the others. I adore the color, and they arrived the quickest.
Oh, and you can't beat free!
