EyeBuyDirect Review & Giveaway

I get emails every so often from Business2Blogger, which is a website that does just what the name describes: connects businesses with bloggers, and vice versa! They always share the most awesome (and totally legitimate, no scams!) opportunities. I recently signed up that I was interested in a particular campaign they mentioned and I got chosen! I got to review something very special to me - eyeglasses! I've worn glasses since first grade and had actually been fretting recently because I've been in need of a new pair...so this couldn't have come at a better time.
I was given the opportunity to get a pair of eyeglasses from EyeBuyDirect.com. Here's a little more about them from their website: EyeBuyDirect.com is a prescription eyewear website offering an extensive range of high quality, affordable frame and lens packages. The site offers its budget-conscious and style-savvy shoppers a fast, simple and efficient way to browse an extensive online catalogue, and enables them to purchase eyewear from the comfort of their own homes. Users have the added option of uploading their photo to ‘virtually’ try-on their desired eyeglasses, as well as receiving feedback and opinions from other users to help inform their decision – all contributing to a fun and interactive shopping experience.
The EyeBuyDirect website was very simple to use. They have a wide variety of different types of frames for every type of occasion. I especially liked the "Eye Try" feature where you could upload a picture of yourself to virtually try on the different frames. That was very helpful to kind of get an idea of what shapes and styles would look good on me. My contact person who set up everything for this review was very helpful and ordering my glasses was super easy. I ordered the "Donna" frame on September 21 and my glasses arrived on October 4. (If you wanted to get them sooner, you could get expedited shipping.) They came with a case and cleaning cloth and have been even better than expected! I really like the way they look. They're good quality and seem to be quite durable. I'd never ordered glasses online before but it was very easy to do and I would definitely order from them again!

Me in my new glasses!

  9. Oh my goodness! I was looking for a site like this! I need new prescription glasses and the site I was going to go for was framesdirect but they are so darn pricey! I'm very shocked that Eye Buy Direct is so inexpensive. I love it!

    Wow their selection is great, if I were lucky enough to win I would most likely get their Brieuc glasses. Love them!!

    These are my favorite because they look normal from the front and funky from the sides.
