review: firmoo eyewear.

Just as the summer sun started getting nigh unbearable I was contacted by Firmoo Eyewear to see if I was interested in trying their online prescription glasses service! I was more than happy to accept -- those of us who have to wear glasses always need to know what places you can shop from that have quality products! Seeing as I'm extremely happy with my eyeglasses currently I opted to try from the prescription sunglasses line.

I was slightly disappointed that some of the cute frames I spotted in the eyeglasses section were unavailable for sunglasses, but I finally found a cute pair of two-tone cat eye frames! I'm a sucker for tortoise frames so these went right into my cart!

The ordering process was rather simple. You need your prescription on hand and you simply fill in the blanks on the website. Something that surprised me was the $10 charge for my PD (pupillary distance) because of the specifications of frames I chose. I've never encountered that at other online shops, but seeing as the glasses were being provided courtesy of Firmoo otherwise I didn't stop to investigate further. To my understanding it was simply because the lens shape didn't accommodate my PD by default so they had to do a slight alteration to make it work.

I placed the order July 3rd, received a processing update email July 9th, and received shipping confirmation the day it arrived on July 14th. The glasses are shipped from China so you must be ready to sign for the parcel when it arrives! The turnaround time from the order being placed to the product arriving was excellent. The glasses arrived in a nice soft pouch with a hard case inside. They included a microfiber wipe to clean off the lenses and a small toolkit.

The sunglasses are made of sturdy plastic and the lenses I chose are extremely dark and have a slight polarization effect. The prescription feels accurate and the frames only needed slight adjusting to fit my head. They are very comfortable on and are great at keeping my eyes from straining in the sun! 

Firmoo's online service is speedy, convenient, and very affordable! My glasses arrived quickly and safely and exceeded my expectations. Definitely give them a try if you're looking for eyewear options!
