When I was in third grade, I started to fail my math tests because I couldn't see the problems that were written on the board. My mom knew something was wrong, because I was her math-and-science-loving child! She took me to the eye doctor, I got my first pair of glasses, and didn't stop talking the entire way home..."MOM! The trees have LEAVES!...MOM! I can read our street sign!!..." :)
In middle school and high school, glasses weren't exactly "cool". I was never teased for wearing them, but they weren't a "must have" accessory, either. Every year or two, I would get a new pair and wince as I (or my parents) had to spend a few hundred dollars on new frames and lenses. But wince no more, my friends! I present to you one of the easiest, most stress-free ways of finding budget-friendly specs: GlassesUSA!
This site has hundreds of styles to choose from, and most of them are under $100. I chose the U 40 Tortoise because I had wanted to try a bigger, trendier frame and I LOVE them!! The site is easy to use and navigate, the customer service is great, and they even have a virtual mirror feature where you can "try on" the frames using a picture that you take of yourself on your webcam! If you are in need of new specs, be sure to check out GlassesUSA, and use code "BLOG10" for 10% off of your order. Check out their Facebook and Twitter pages for more exclusive discounts!
