Fashion | My Firmoo Glasses Ordering Experience & Review

Hello Beauties!

As I've been thinking about today's post, I have to say that it is a blessing to have vision insurance.  I shared in this post that I went awhile without having insurance.  I'm thankful to now have insurance and last month, I went for my first eye exam in four years.  This visit was even more exciting because I knew after my visit, thanks to Firmoo, I would be ordering my first pair of prescription glasses online.  Keep reading to see my online ordering experience and the review of my glasses...

The Ordering Process

After my eye exam, my optometrist gave me a copy of my eye prescription.  I took the sheet of paper and when I got home, I visited the Firmoo website and chose my glasses design.  Once I chose my design, I followed each step provided by Firmoo.  Filling in the information was very easy.  The information I was asked online went perfectly with the form my optometrist gave me and it was just a matter of inputting the numbers from the form.

The only different task I had to do was measuring my pupillary distance, which is the distance between your pupils.  I took a ruler to measure this.  Once I had the measurement in inches, I went to Google to have it converted into millimeters which Firmoo requires.  Once I input all the numbers into Firmoo's website, I was good to go.

My Thoughts

Firmoo honestly has shocked me!  Even though I had a great experience with my previous Firmoo sunglasses order, I have never ordered prescription glasses online.  Although the ordering process was easy, I was nervous as I was waiting for my glasses to arrive.  I had no idea what to expect.  After nearly three weeks, I received my glasses in the mail.  When I opened them, I was shocked to see how perfect they were!  I loved the design and they fit my face perfectly.  I love them!  Plus, the glasses came with a case, pouch and screwdriver.

Would I Recommend?

YES!  The ordering process for these glasses was so easy and I absolutely LOVE how they came out.  Please keep in mind that it took nearly three weeks for me to receive my glasses, though, so if you are in need of a pair immediately, this may not be the best route for you.

Have you ever purchased from Firmoo?  Do you purchase prescription glasses online?

God bless & stay fabellis,

  1. I've done Warby Parker and I think they were a little faster, but not much. Also, don't be afraid to ask your eye doc for whatever you need, like your pupillary distance. I had mine do it and write it on my prescription when I was in her office. I even went back to them when I received my glasses for a fitting because they were a little loose.

    So glad to have a review of a new place. I want a few pairs, so I've been looking for something a little cheaper than Warby Parker. You look so cute in yours!

  2. Hey Janel! Thanks for checking out my review! I didn't know I could ask my eye doctor for my pupillary distance. That's great to know! I guess measuring on my own worked out this time, but I will definitely recommend the doctor to others who may not feel confident in doing the measurement themselves. I think you would love Firmoo. They even have some frames on clearance.

  3. I have never heard of this company. I remember the days of going without insurance for a few years. My job provided it but I couldn't afford it at the time. Your glasses looks great on you girl!

  4. I've been wearing store bought, no prescription needed, reading glasses for a couple of years, but after seeing yours, I need to go get a prescription and order from Firmoo immediately! I simply love your glasses! They are so chic and fit your face perfectly. I need to ditch these cheapo readers and take the plunge. Beautiful!
