Reading Glasses Shopper Review and Giveaway

 

Reading Glasses Shopper is a great online store for buying reading glasses (and sunglasses).  Their website has awesome information too such as their Reading Glasses Glossary and their Eye Health Glossary. They even have a blog!  Another great thing about their site is that they have different selections for men and women.  At most stores, reading glasses are supposed to be unisex. 

Thankfully, I do not need reading glasses yet (I can hardly imagine that day since my prescription is something like 20/800).  But, my mom has been wearing reading glasses for a few years now.  I was so excited when I was contacted to do a review and giveaway for Reading Glasses Shopper and my mom readily agreed to do the review part.  Below is her review (can you tell she is a blogger and writer herself?)


"I was so excited when my daughter told me that we (really me) were given the opportunity to review reading glasses. I’ve been using reading classes for about 3 or 4 years now.

I tend to usually buy them at a local store. While the price at the local store is fair, the selection is limited to either metal rims or black plastic.

When my daughter showed me their site, I was blown away. They offer such an incredible collection. Not only do they offer frames that are square, oval or rectangular, they also offer more designs than I could even keep track of.

I was asked to pick out my three favorite pairs. Only three? I’ve never seen a collection like this before.

So, I did pick out my three favorites. I got my first choice, the Vegas frames in Tiger print. To say I love them would be an understatement. The base of the frame is brown. There are then tiger stripes throughout the entire frame.





Remember those glasses I bought at the local store? The frames are thin. The frames from Reading Glasses Shopper are some of the thickest frames I’ve ever seen. The quality is amazing.

In years past the lenses have fallen out of glasses I’ve bought at the local store. Again, the quality of the glasses from Reading Glasses Shopper is fantastic. I know these lenses are not falling out.

Next time I need to buy new glasses, you can bet I’ll be buying them from Reading Glasses Shopper. Not only is their frame selection awesome, but the prices are better than fair!!"


I am pleased to offer a pair of glasses of the winner's choice from Reading Glasses Shopper

It's so nice to have an alternative between pricey reading glasses from the optometrist's office and crummy ones from the dime store. The men's glasses have some great styles that are up-to-date, but not too far out there. Thanks for the giveaway!

Oh, I know a thing or two about reading glasses! I've always got a pair on my head or on my desk or beside my computer or in the drawer or in the car or in my pocketbook! Never without. It would definitely be The Vegas for me, in 1.50. Too C-U-T-E!!
