Please note: I received a free pair of sunglasses to evaluate and review for this article.)
My grandson loves trying on glasses. He's not very old but once he discovered glasses, that was it! There's just something about peering through the lens of a pair of glasses that he finds irresistible.
So, if anyone thoughtlessly leaves their glasses lying around, you'll quickly discover them perched on his nose and an impish grin on his face.
Here he is wearing his mother's glasses and looking pretty pleased with himself.
Now, I don't know about you, but wearing glasses does not hold the same appeal for me. Neither do I enjoy choosing new glasses or sunglasses. Sure.. they all look great on the advertising posters with glamorous models sporting the latest designs. But, let's face it, those models would make anything look good.
But, living in Australia, my sunglasses are essential when venturing outdoors, whether it's a summer or a winter sun. I need them just walking out to the car!
At last, the secret to buying sunglasses is revealed.
I've discovered the quickest and easiest way to buy sunglasses, and prescription glasses, too. No longer do I waste time at the sunglasses counter or visiting the optometrist trying on countless pairs of sunglasses. Now, I've found a much easier way and it's actually much cheaper, too.
5 simple steps to buying your best ever sunglasses.
Step 1: First of all, I think it's really helpful to know what type of glasses or sunglasses are best for the shape of your face. You might know that already but if not, it will save you lots of time and effort when you search for the right pair of glasses.
You can find plenty of online sites that will provide you with that information but this chart will make it pretty simple and clear to work out.
Step 2: Visit GlassesShop.com where you can choose from hundreds of high quality, chic fashion frames and light, durable glasses and sunglasses. You'll have no problem finding just the right style for your face shape. And the glasses frames come in many different colours and materials.
So, step number two involves choosing either sunglasses or prescription eyeglasses. It's good to note that you can order prescription sunglasses, too. You'll need to input your latest prescription from your optometrist but that's easily obtained.
Step 3: Narrow your search. You'll find plenty of choice options at the GlassesShop.com and first is, Men - Kids- Women. It's good to note that durable, light-weight prescription glasses area available for kids because an extra pair is great to keep on-hand, as I remember well.
There are other search options available to help you quickly and easily locate the glasses best for you: frame shapes, materials, lens available (single, bi-focal and progressive), shape, lens width, colour and price range.
Step 4: Now, comes the fun part. You can take a closer look at any glasses or sunglasses style that interests you. Clicking on an image provides you with much more information but also enables you to check out how the glasses would look while wearing them. You can choose a supplied model's face and see the glasses on or... upload your own photo to see just how you would appear in the glasses before you make a final decision.
Step 5: Check out any special promotions. GlassesShop.com specialises in great deals and regular promotions so It's wise to check out any deals before you finalise your order.
With that in mind, I have a special coupon code GSHOT50 that you might like to use. This code means you can have 50% off on eyeglasses and sunglasses with free lenses (sale frames excluded).
Then, order your new glasses or sunglasses.
With the ease of ordering and the reasonable prices, you could easily order a couple of pairs of different but trendy frame glasses. For example, the Pearland Wayfarer- floral design pictured above is currently listed for $29.95. If you choose single lens, whether distance, computer or reading, the price remains the same. (Bifocal or progressive lenses incur a small additional cost.) But with a special promotional deal, you can pay even less!
I've loved my new sunglasses (see above) and was really surprised how light-weight they are.. wonderful to wear. The parcel took a little longer to arrive than I expected, but delivery times will vary according to where you live. (Australia always to seems to take longer, I've found.)
Check it out.. I'm sure you'll enjoy your new glasses or sunglasses.
