Monday’s Amuse Bouche #8 -Cheap Glasses

I appreciate each and every share. Thank you!

Amuse Bouche (ˈä-ˌmüz-ˈbüsh): literally translated into “mouth amuser”.  Wikipedia definition: a single, bite-sized hors d’oeuvre.

 Jodie’s use of the term: a small hint or clever tip!  (Think Hints from Heloise!!)

Cheap Eyeglasses

Nowadays there are many options on the internet for less expensive eye glasses!  I am not being paid for this post but I thought  because most of us in this age group wear glasses I would pass this option onto you.  I had a former patient tell me about EyeBuyDirect.com a couple years ago.  I have use this website so let me describe to you how it all works!

First you pick your frames from a nice selection. In the photo above, I am wearing the frame style called “Adept” from www.eyebuydirect.com–the entire cost for these glasses were priced at under $25 with shipping and lenses (single vision).  Heck, many of their frames are under $15.  I absolutely LOVE them!  I know many of you are saying, but how could I buy a pair of glasses without trying them on?  Well here are my suggestions:

1-Since these frames are plastic, I think they are perfect for your spare/extra pair–or maybe even a crazy look that you’re not sure you’ll wear tons, so don’t want to spend an arm & leg on.  Thus, maybe they don’t need to be a “perfect” fit.

2-I’m sure you have a pair at home that you like.  Measure the dimensions and compare them to the frames you like on the website.  This will, at least, make sure the frames fit on your face nicely.

3-There is a try on button where you can download a picture of you and “see” what the frames will look like on your face.

4-This company has a replacement guarantee (once every 12 months) or even refund within 14 days if you don’t like them.  I know because I had to use this…I accidentally entered the incorrect prescription, so when my glasses arrived, I could not focus with them.  The replacement was truly no hassle (even though it was my fault) and I only had to pay the $6 shipping for the new pair.  It was an impressive experience.

Overall, I think this is a great way to discover different colors and styles that you normally wouldn’t try!

If you do want to try this, you can save 5% off your purchase with the code: IFX9PE3W6R or check out the discounts they have running here.

Thank you so much for spending the time to read my blog.  Don’t forget to come back the rest of the week for Black & White outfits!
