How to Get Stylish Glasses for Less

This is a sponsored post written on behalf of EyeBuyDirect. I am very excited to share my opinions and experience with my new glasses. 

I have been wearing glasses since I was in 6th grade and it has been a pretty ugly road filled with awful frames. Up until about 2005, I had glasses and never wore them out of the house because they were so awful. I found an amazing and extremely pricy pair of designer glasses that I finally wore out of the house for the first time ever. I am embarrassed to tell you how much I spent on these glasses. The frames were actually cheaper than the lenses. Can you imagine designer glasses being cheaper than my lenses? Since I am so blind (-8.00 and – 8.25), the only way the glasses look good is if they are the thinnest possible and have an antireflective coating.

Stylish Glasses have come a long way since 2005. Now, you can get stylish glasses for less from EyeBuyDirect. They have a ton of glasses that you’d be happy to wear all day everyday! I’m going to show you how I picked these stylish glasses.

Stylish Glasses for Less

Frame Size

First, I started by measuring my current pair of glasses. My main issue with buying glasses online is getting ones big enough for my big head. LOL I like a large frame, but I cannot go too big because my perception gets too big on the edges. You can measure your current glasses or sunglasses to get an idea of the size you like. EyeBuyDirect lets you narrow down the measurements with these sliders. Check out all the specific they get into! LOVE IT!!!

 Search Functions

The coolest part of the EyeBuyDirect website is that you can narrow down your search by color, size, rim, shape, gender, and material. It makes it really easy to find  the perfect glasses for you. You can be as picky as you want and still have a ton of options to choose from. Do you want a large lightweight stylish frame? The Warren frame comes in Matte Black and Matte Navy. Now, I want the Warren frame too! With this pricing, it is easy to have a few different pairs of glasses.

Mia Farrow Frames

You can even filter the frames to make sure that your prescription can fit into the frame. You don’t want to fall in love with a frame only to be told, sorry your script is too high! EyeBuyDirect protects you from this traumatic experience. If it has happen to you, you know what I mean.

Try On App

The try on function is the best I have ever seen. I tried on more glasses than I would like to admit! At one point, I was considering a baby blue pair. The Try It On App is a great way to know what styles will look good on you.

You just have put the pupil distance into the try on function and put the targets on your pupils. It’s super easy. If you don’t know your pupil distance, you can get from your eye doctor or measure it yourself from this pupil distance app. You can do this try on a the computer or on the Try On app! So cool!!

Stylish Glasses!!

These stylish glasses remind me of Tom Ford glasses because of the T on the temple. It is so stylish and even with the high index lenses, they were only $157.95! The frame price is only $29.40.

Customizing Stylish Glasses

You can customize your glasses to meet your needs. Personally, I need the thinnest possible lens based on my presciption strength. First, you choose what you need the glasses for. I’m a distance girl. They have distance, reading, bifocal, and non-prescription.

Next, you put in your prescription, any axis and your pupillary distance.

EBD Blue

Then, you decide what type of lens you want. I choose the Digital Screen Protector because it helps protect your eyes from the computer and cell phones. There are other awesome options like light adjusting and sun protector. EBD Blue is a proprietary blue light filter, scratch resistant, UV protective and anti-reflective. This is important for anyone that works in front of a computer screen all day.

“The display screens of computers, electronic notebooks, smartphones and other digital devices emit significant amounts of blue light. The amount of HEV light these devices emit is only a fraction of that emitted by the sun. But the amount of time people spend using these devices and the proximity of these screens to the user’s face have many eye doctors and other healthcare professionals concerned about possible long-term effects of blue light on eye health.” AllAboutVision.com (Research On Blue Violet Light)

Anti-reflective lenses actually help  you see better. The reflectiveness of a lenses can cause headaches and eye strain. The anti-reflective lens coating is especially important for lenses that are high index. “Anti-Reflective coating is especially beneficial when used on high-index lenses, which reflect more light than regular plastic lenses. Generally, the higher the index of refraction of the lens material, the more light that will be reflected from the surface of the lenses. For example, regular plastic lenses reflect roughly 8 percent of light hitting the lenses, so only 92 percent of available light enters the eye for vision. High index plastic lenses can reflect up to 50 percent more light than regular plastic lenses (approximately 12 percent of available light), so even less light is available to the eye for vision. This can be particularly troublesome in low-light conditions, such as when driving at night.” AllAboutVision.com (Research On Anti-Relective Coating)
