Respect the 'Specs
I was contacted by Firmoo.com a few weeks ago about their free glasses program. Free is my favorite price point, so I figured what the hell? I went online and quickly selected a pair that caught my eye (pun intended), then completed my order easily enough. You can try on the glasses online using an uploaded photo of yourself. All you need for prescription glasses is your prescription (if you wear contacts, it's on the box) and your pupilary distance. Done!
A week later, I got my glasses in the mail. I brought in the mail one day and told Tim, "I have a package from Jamaica?" and I was confused. Then I realized the label said Jamaica, New York, and felt not so smart ...
Anyhow, I immediately noticed when I tried on the glasses how comfortable the glasses are and how well they fit me. With some plastic frames, they're too big for my head and slide around, especially when I workout.
So to make sure these will pass the ultimate test, I wore them to CrossFit this morning. There was plenty of running and jumping, and even some ring push ups. The glasses did not budge, which made me smile.
To ensure my glasses fit all aspects of my life, I wore them to work today, too. The prescription was definitely correct as I wore them all day without headaches or issues. I'm still wearing the 'specs as I'm typing this, so I am a fan. I'll wear these regularly, too.
What's great about this Web site is that anyone can get a free pair of glasses to give it a try. Even if you don't need glasses, it's fun to give something new a try.
How often do you get new glasses?
I have four pairs that I rotate through depending on my outfit.
