Firmoo Eyeglasses Review

Friday, April 22, 2016
Putting on a new pair of glasses or sunglasses is a simple way to completely transform your look - just like a new hairstyle.

  • I've been wearing glasses since the second half of 5th grade. I absolutely love getting a new pair every couple of years because I always seem to find a better one. I'm suppose to get a new pair this May but when Firmoo contacted me to do an eyewear review for them, I was really excited to get a pair earlier than expected! Firmoo is an online optical store that offers an affordable selection of frames and lenses. To be honest, I didn't expect much of it because I've been so used to getting my eyewear from Lenscrafters (it's been 10 years already), I didn't think the quality of an online optical store could compare.
    Selection Process
    I've never selected a pair of glasses online before so I was pretty nervous choosing a pair. I chose a pair similar to my current glasses. I highly recommend comparing the dimensions of your own eyeglasses (or sunglasses) when choosing a pair online. I originally had a bunch of glasses I was considering before I realized some of them were much bigger than the ones I currently own. I also recommend choosing a shape you know you like. They have an option where you can upload a photo of yourself to try on but I never think those work for me so I trusted the measurements I did myself instead of relying on that option. I ended up selecting the style #S3417 which is very similar to the ones I already own.
    Review
    When I received the package, I was pleasantly surprised; the quality of the eyeglasses was much better than I expected. I was also glad I read my prescription right. My last optometrist's handwriting was not that great so I was really nervous I wouldn't be able to see in them. If you're only purchasing for fashion purposes, then you don't need to worry about your prescription! I only need my glasses for "general use" so I didn't have any problems when choosing between the different options they had.
    The fit was perfect and even better than how my current ones fit right now. I loved how it wouldn't slide down my nose even a bit. I personally did not like the shape of the glasses on myself. They are similar to my current pair but they're much bigger than I expected. On the website it says a 5mm difference is acceptable but to me it really made a difference as you can see in the comparison below. My current glasses is the first photo and the Firmoo ones are shown below it.
    Another thing that I noticed with these particular glasses was that they gave me headaches and strained my eyes out really quickly. I've had this feeling before but it was usually because of how long I was staring at a computer screen and it wouldn't happen until the end of the day. It could also be because they are new glasses so my eyes weren't used to it but because of how quickly I'd get headaches, it made me not want to wear them for long periods of times.
    AND my overall rating (out of 5) for this product is:

    1. As someone who knows the struggle of glasses slipping down my nose 24/7 it's great to see a pretty pair of glasses that don't! :) | withinthecity.blogspot.co.uk
