Review | Glasses Shop New Tortoiseshell frames

Wednesday, June 28, 2017

I was recently contacted by GlassesShop.com asking if I would like to review a pair of their eyeglasses, It couldn't have been a more perfect time. I'd just had my eyes tested and I was in the buyer remorse phase between paying for new eyeglasses at the opticians and the ten-day wait to pick them up.

The eyeglasses I'd chosen at the opticians were very different to what I've had before and glassesshop.com felt like they saved the day by having a similar style to my existing eyeglasses while still being different and new.

The ordering process was really simple, for me I had to email the details of my prescription to then company direct. All the details were on my card from my opticians with the exception of my (Pupil Distance) PD. As my sight test was recent I knew what it was but the website shows you how to measure it or you can ask where you had your eyes tested. When you order eyeglasses online there is a section on the website for you to enter all your details.

I am very happy with the frames that I have chosen, I love the mix of gold and tortoise shell, my hair is currently quite light and the gold works well but having the darker details will still work when I go through my phase of dark winter hair. You know it's going to happen I've been light for a while now.

The detail on the arms and bridge of the nose and very nice and make the eyeglass frames seem more expensive.

They also do a range of prescription sunglasses which range from then ordinary functional glasses to some which are very cool. I have my eye on the Leila Square in Black. I'm not sure I'm cool enough to pull that style of sunglasses off but I've fallen hook line and sinker for them and they are under $40 including single vision lenses.

The glasses are really comfortable and fit really well, one thing I was worried about was how they would fit around my ears as when you go into the opticians they tend to spend ages checking the fit and bending the arms but these fit very well and I don't feel like they need any adjustments.

Delivery time was also very quick and they arrived in under  10 working days. I was on holiday when they were delivered and the boxed fitted through my letter box no problem. They also came with a plastic case and cleaning cloth. 

I've also been given a discount code for my readers.

  12. I currently have the black thick rimmed glasses and I am so sick of them. I can't really wear them because they are always sliding off my nose, but I went for them anyway as they were quite in. Anyway, it's a decision I am looking to rectify and I think I may just copy you and get this pair, they are gorgeous and they are just the type of glasses I need to sit comfortably on my nose. x

  16. The gold and tortoiseshell looks great together and they really suit you. I've looked at ordering online but always end up back at the opticians. I like to try all the different styles, shapes and colours on and that's not as easy online.
