Now, I didn’t find out about the site eyebuydirect.com until quite a bit after I did Warby Parker– and when I did, it was by quite a bit of luck and chance. I was munching on some food in the kitchen, undoubtedly– and as I always do, I scanned the island counter-top for some kind of reading material to pass the time as I ate. I happened upon my brother’s copy of Game Informer magazine, and being a casual/lowkey gamer myself (mostly handheld RPGS on 3DS, or MOBAS/ any multiplayer game on PC, bc my boyfriend and I used to be in an LDR), I peeked inside.
I was surprised to find an advertisement for cheap, prescription glasses that offered digital screen/blue light protection filters, and that surely piqued my interest. I was still rather bored, even when I was finished eating, so I went straight to my laptop and typed in the url– I can honestly say, I was not prepared for the extensive variety that awaited me, not just in number of frames available, but in the actual appearance/style of each pair. For someone like me, who craves a unique but affordable pair of glasses, it was like opening a Pandora’s Box in a sense– an incredible, fun selection, that I ended up becoming addicted to buying! Hahah
Below the cut, I’ll share each individual pair with you, and discuss more about the pros and cons of this site, who I’d recommend it to specifically, and what I’d recommend otherwise for people who might be better suited to shopping somewhere else.
Let’s get started~
