Permit me to go a little of topic today, but I do have something wonderful to share with you all. Interested in free eye glasses? Read on.

I was recently contacted by to try a free pair of glasses of my choice. Not really food related but who can resist free glasses. I am one of those lucky ones who does not wear prescription eye wear, at least not yet but the big 4-0 is coming soon enough and apparently eyesight goes down hill from there. I have to admit the fine print of some cookbooks is getting a tiny bit tougher to read lately.

But I am always in the market for great sunglasses. I just recently had to say bye-bye to a fabulous pair I bough 13 years ago at a whopping 165$. I loved them, I morn them, I still had a lot of compliments on them. But I had to move on and find something new. My current sunglasses are from the drug store. They are nice, OK made, plastic…nothing special.

On this site you can shop glasses by shape, size, material and frame. Once you choose a pair the site leads you through a series of questions in case your eyeglasses have a prescription or if you want to add custom features. I found the sunglasses section to be a bit limited to my taste for the shape of my face. I wanted to make sure I would be happy with my selection. Thankfully each description offers several pictures from various angles so you have a good idea of what the glasses really look like. Firmoo even goes a step further to ensure you will be happy with your glasses by offering a virtual try-on system. Just upload a picture of yourself and you can ‘try-on’ any glasses on the site so you will know what they will look like on you. Still, I was anxious to get them and see if they would suit me. I spent quite some time checking out the glasses and I finally chose this pair. Here is my customized order:

Women’s full frame wrap-around plastic sunglasses – OTO2545

  • Frame Color : Purple(C3)
  • Spring Hinge : No
  • Glasses is for : Fashion (without prescription, with zero power lens)
  • lens : Wrap-around lenses
  • Add-on : UV Coating (+ $10.00)
  • Tint : Grey 60%

I got my glasses within 2 weeks which is fast considering they were shipped from overseas. I was impressed and very happy with my glasses and everything that came with it. The construction was really top notch. The glasses seem to be made of great quality materials, well-made and seem very solid. They suit me well enough I think. I hesitate now as to which pair I will leave with in the morning. My one complaint is that the purple frame is darker in real than in the pictures online. On the site they look pale violet and the actual glasses are more of a smoky purple.

The glasses were safely tucked into a very sturdy case. Inside the glasses were wrapped in a lens cleaning cloth and bubble wrap. Also included were a soft drawstring pouch and a small tool kit with a tiny screw driver and extra screws. is the world’s most popular online eyeglasses store. They pride themselves in selling only quality products at the most affordable prices. Whether you are looking to make a fashion statement, protect your eyes with sunglasses or goggles, or need to fill out a prescription… your perfect pair of glasses will be amongst their large selection at a great price.
