My son, daughter and I all wear glasses. I have worn them since my first pair of huge plastic blue frames in kindergarten, to the round red glasses of the '90's to my current wire framed transition lenses. Glasses are a big part of our lives and one item that we couldn't live without! That's why it's so important to find a place that will offer our whole family fashionable eyeglasses at reasonable prices.
All three of us are coming up on being due for a new eye exam and new lenses. We all need new frames as well since its been several years since our last pairs and we are all having issues with broken glasses arms, and my glasses have worn coating over the nose piece making them uncomfortable. While we will need to go to our optometrist to get a new lens prescription, I am considering using an online glasses store to purchase our lenses and frames. Last time we bought our daughter glasses, she wanted a pricey name brand frame and we ended up paying over $400.00 for her glasses alone. that's just too much when all of us need a new pair!
One place we recently have been hearing about is Coastal.com. They have a large assortment of frames for the whole family and their prices seem to be very competitive with other online glasses stores. I really like several pairs of frames that I saw while browsing around. They even have frames that I think my daughter would wear. She has been asking to get a pair of trendy black plastic frames. I was hesitant to spend the cash on them since she may change her mind but at the affordable prices that Coastal.com has, we could get her 2 pairs of glasses — her trendy black ones and a more practical pair.
Here are just a few Fashionable Glasses frames that are on our maybe list!
My daughter would like these Super cute Guess Black Candies Glasses
Or, maybe the Black Ray Ban Glasses? I think the writing on the inner part of the frames is pretty cool!
For myself, these Nicole Miller frames in Mayem Steel would be a nice change from my usual picks.
I also love these Diane Von Furstenberg frames in the Dark Tortoise, they have a very professional vibe.
Coastal.com must be popular! They are the first and only optical retailer to pass 1 million Facebook fans (the 2nd place has about 260k fans). Wow! That is impressive! Check out this thank you video to the fans.
After seeing all of those Facebook likes, it's not surprising to learn that Coastal.com is the largest online retailer of eyeglasses and contact lenses in North America. The selection of attractive glasses for men, women, teens, tweens and kids is vast and they really do have stylish eye wear for everyone's tastes and likes. Coastal.com keeps glasses in everyone's budget by offering designer brands for up to 70% off traditionl brick and mortar store prices. I also love that own their own lab in Washington instead of outsourcing to China like so many other companies do these these days. This makes their shipping speedy as well!
Shopping for eyeglasses online would certainly be a nice alternative to spending hours at the vision care center trying to choose the perfect frame. Also, with a no worry 366 day return policy, you can be sure that you'll be able to get a pair of glasses that you love. And, since I promised my daughter that she could try out contact lenses for the first time this summer, we just may be able to take advantage of their great contact lens pricing this year!
