A Firmoo Glasses Review

I was recently contacted and offered a free pair of glasses in exchange for a review of the glasses from firmoo.com.  Having recently "graduated" from dollar store reading glasses part-time to wearing progressive lens full-time, I thought, "Why not?" 
Well, though it wasn't clear from the introductory e-mail, progressive lens were not covered in their offer.  However, the frames were free, and their charge for progressive lens was as low as I've seen, so I decided to go ahead and order a pair.  

I could choose a pair of frames from their "blogger collection." I took quite a bit of time using their "Try On" feature; I could upload a photo of my face and then could see what various frames would look like on me.  Unfortunately, one of the frames I wanted to try on didn't work with the "Try On" feature.  Instead of showing my face, the frames appeared with white background--like if I had put a sticker over my face.  I ended up choosing another frame instead.  
I noticed that if I had been ordering frames generally, rather than from the blogger collection, I could have used a great filtering tool. I wish that had been in place for the blogger collection, so I could have limited my choices to frames that would work for progressive lens and that would fit my face.  As it was, I just had to click on each frame I was interested in, then see if it worked for progressive lenses and was in the size I needed. 

To order from virmoo.com, you will need your prescription, including pupillary distance (the distance between your pupils).  I had my prescription from my eye doctor, and the pupillary distance from my receipt from Costco, where I had ordered glasses before. Armed with that information, I could easily place an order with virmoo.com. 

About a week after placing my order, I received my glasses in the mail.  The prescription was just right.  The frames were noticeably lighter in weight than my other glasses.  On the one hand, I really like that; on the other, I wonder about how durable they are.  So far, so good, though--and I find myself wearing them more frequently than the other pair.  

Overall, I'm happy with my experience with virmoo.com, and would order from them again.

  1. That sounds like an interesting site. You'll have to let me know how you like them after you've worn them a bit. I really like progressive lenses but some people don't care for them.

    1. Both of my pairs of glasses are progressive lens. It took a little while to get used to them, but not long. I really do like the lightness of these frame; time will tell if they hold up to daily use.

  2. The frame you chose looks good on you. I always struggle finding a frame that works with my trifocals.

    1. Thank you. I don't know if firmoo's frames work with trifocals, but I would imagine that some of the frames that work with progressives might.

Never Give Up Hope

Twenty-three years ago, a beautiful little girl was born. From the get-go, she was sweet, sensitive, and rather shy. She has grown into a young woman of whom I am so proud. She has worked hard to overcome challenges, and recently told me she is trying to face her fears, and asked me if I would write her story and share it here on the blog, in hopes she can inspire others through their own struggles. Although I offered to publish an auto-biographical piece for her, she wanted me to write her story from my perspective. At her request, and with her approval of this post, I share the following:
The phone rang, and the social worker on the other end informed me that a baby girl had been born 10 weeks early and drug-exposed. She wasn't ready to be released from the medical facility where she was currently staying, but would we be interested in being her foster-to-adopt parents? Of course! When John and I filled out our paperwork, we indicated that we were comfortable with a premature bab…

Six Sentence Story: Burst

The moment the church organist started playing the introduction to the hymn, the precocious toddler girl stood up on the pew. Music just moved her, and she was doubly excited when she realized she recognized the tune. Though everyone around her was opening a hymnal and finding the right page, that was unnecessary for her. 
First of all, she couldn't read, but second, even if she could read, she didn't need the words; they were etched into her memory. Finally, the organist finished the introduction and the chorister signaled the congregation to begin, but while the rest of the church-goers sang, "Lord, dismiss us with thy blessing," the sweet little girl belted out, "Go tell Aunt Rhody." By the time she got to the line about the old grey goose being dead, all decorum was lost as those around her burst out laughing.

Six Sentence Story: Release

Her small brow furrowed in concentration as she carefully placed the wriggling worm on the little hook. 

"Ready, Daddy!" she called, and Daddy came over and helped her cast the line into the lake. To the amazement of both of them, soon the bobber took a dip into the water. Daddy talked her through reeling the keeper-sized fish onto the shore.

"I'll name him Lucky, because he is lucky I caught him!" she proudly announced.

Lucky's luck ran out, though, when he realized this wasn't going to be a catch-and-release situation.
