I met the optician’s recommendation that I wear glasses ‘only’ when I read, in front of a computer or drive (read: 99% of the time I’m not asleep) with mixed feelings.
An opportunity to add another accessory? Tick.
A dilemma considering that this accessory is actually on your face? Tick.
An immediate urge to stock up on 5 pairs which may never be worn? Tick.
I decided to ease myself into it. Spending a couple of hundred €’s on glasses is as easy as leaving them to never see the daylight in the bottom desk drawer (no? never happened to you?).
I decided to use Firmoo which some thought was a mad thing to do. Until they saw my glasses that is.
Firmoo is an online store, I used them previously for sunglasses and was very happy with the product. I know that prescription is different but not so much if you’ve gone to a good optician. My prescription had every detail I needed to fill in Firmoo’s through online order forms and guarantee that once I put my glasses on, yep I can see.
The selection of frames on their website is quite wide but not overwhelming. What I really like about it is that they have many of the trendy styles that we’re used to seeing in sunglasses but not very often in prescription glasses. I went for the geeky round shape which is the same style I often use in sunglasses. I am yet to make wearing them a daily habit but I am definitely getting better at it. And I haven’t spent a fortune so I may be back for another pair (or two)…
