My 3 year old spectacles broke, don’t ask me how. So when Firmoo contacted me to try out their services, I immediately jumped at the opportunity. It is my first time ordering spectacles online though and I was worried that it would be a tedious process but to my delight, everything went on smoothly.
I had placed my order on 28th Oct night and received my glasses on 2nd Nov afternoon. That’s pretty fast and best of all, they fit so well. I didn’t even feel dizzy upon trying it out.
This is the design which I’d selected on the website. As I’d mentioned before, I was rather skeptical about ordering a pair of spectacles online. But they had included the measurements on the website so I could compare it with my current ones and they matched perfectly. I wasn’t feeling so adventurous though so I decided to stick to the same frame type I was already used to instead of going for a different style like the round ones which are all the rage now.
They also have this TRY ME option where you get to upload your photo to visualize how the pair of glasses would look on you. I didn’t try that out since the measurements of this frame were exactly the same as my old ones. So I already had a pretty good idea of how it would turn out.
They have lots of other designs available with frames starting from as low as USD19.00. But before you begin ordering, it is important to have your prescription on hand. You could get it from your local optician and it should look something like this.
Once you have that on hand then you may begin the ordering process. Select the design you want to proceed. Pick “Single Vision” if you need prescription glasses, “Multifocal” for progressive lenses and “Non-RX” for non-prescription glasses.
For normal prescription glasses, select “Single Vision” and these 3 boxes would appear. Select “General Use”. Then upload your prescription in image format or enter the values manually. If you have a photo of your prescription like I did above, then uploading it would work just fine.
Next, you get to select the lenses thickness. It is free if you opt for the standard lenses unless your degree is really high and you need the thinner lenses then you just need to top up accordingly.
The next selection is for color, skip this if it does not apply to your glasses.
last but not least, select your coating. Anti-scratch is free, you can upgrade to the various other coatings accordingly. But if you are just getting a pair of glasses for general use, the first FREE option works just fine.
And then you check out. Good news is that they ship worldwide! Express courier by FedEx is USD18.75. But if your glasses are more than USD55, you get FREE SHIPPING. Use code FREEEXSHIP for other countries. For US: Free shipping on $39 or more. Use code FREESHIP
