I have been practically blind since childhood so glasses have always been a part in my life. To this day my eyes just straight out suck & it's even noted on my drivers license. Yup, that's right, I'm legally blind without my glasses on lol. For all of you that watch me on periscope, it's probably all starting to make sense to you now why I always have my face basically planted on my phone screen when reading your comments ;-) I CAN'T SEE ANYTHING lol.....
Unfortunately for me glasses were also the reason I was bullied and picked on in preschool and kindergarten. I didn't have a single friend because I had bad eyesight :-/ Kids can be so cruel! Thankfully for me, once I got into first and second grade & school eye exams started to happen annually, some of those mean kids ended up becoming a four eyes themselves. The bullying stopped and I was finally able to have friends in school since glasses were more accepted since other people were rocking them too. I will never forget those few lonely years though & really think that's why I'm beyond nice to everyone to this day. The world needs more nice people.
Being a girl who has worn glasses since she can remember, I can tell you how costly it really can be for parents. Let's be honest here, even the most cautious kiddo will break there frames, scratch there lenses or even lose there glasses all together at some point! It just happened & there is no way to really avoid it.
Thankfully in this day in age parents have the option of buying glasses online! You're probably thinking well what's the difference between online or going to a store itself? Well read below to see the top 7 reasons you really should start doing your glasses shopping online!
1. A complete pair of glasses from GlassesUSA.com starts at only $48 w/ lenses and that’s before any coupon discounts!!!!
The last pair of glasses I purchased ended up costing me around $400!!! Crazy, I tell you. Just crazy. Whether you're shopping for yourself or for your kiddo $48 is just a steal. You can now buy a pair of frames for your kiddo & not stress as much over what might happen to them. It's way easier to replace $48 than $400!!
2. Shopping online means you have a variety of different styles to choose from!
I'm not sure if it's because I live in the middle of no where, but when it comes to finding the pair of frames I want... Ughhhh....
