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.

It's #RootsTech Giveaway Time!

In February of 2018, not knowing exactly what to expect, I attended RootsTech for the first time. What I learned is that RootsTech has something for everyone, from the most beginner of beginners to professional DNA genealogists. If you are interested in your own family story, come to RootsTech! RootsTech offers over 300 classes, amazing keynote speakers, an Expo Hall packed with all sorts of vendors, and evening cultural events. 

After an enjoyable experience in 2018, I returned in 2019, and even got my husband, John, to come one of the days to hear Saroo Brierley give a keynote address. 

Speaking of keynote addresses, this week RootsTech just announced that one of the speakers for 2020 will be David Hume Kennerly, a Pulitzer Prize winning photographer. I can't wait to hear his story!

RootsTech 2020 will celebrate its 10th anniversary, and is bound to be the best one yet! I have been delighted to be accepted as an official RootsTech ambassador. One of the perks is that I received a c…

Ten Things of Thankful: So Long, October!

Although the number of good moments in October outnumbered the sad, I'm still thankful it is now November!

November brings:
1. a time change. I'm thankful that mornings will be lighter earlier.
2. John's birthday. I'm thankful for him, and love thinking of ways to make his day special.
3. Drexel's birthday. He will be 7 years old this month. Time passes so quickly! I'm thankful for him; he's a good dog. 
4. Thanksgiving. I'm thankful we have a designated day to remember to be thankful.
5. Oldest granddaughter's birthday. She will also be 7 this month. Time passes so quickly! I'm thankful for her; she's a sweet girl.

Other things I'm thankful for this week:
6. Books. I read Educated  and started It's All Relative. Educated is thought-provoking on many levels. I'm looking forward to finishing It's All Relative; I started it in the Baker City Public Library while waiting for our van to be repaired. My copy from Amazon should arrive late…

Ten Things of Thankful: Nearly Christmas Edition

This is a busy time of year, and though it isn't as busy for me as it has been in past years, my to-do list still seems longer than the hours in the days. However, I find that when I spend time to focus on the reason for the season, I can feel the joy of Christmas and the tasks-at-hand fall back into their proper place. This week I had the opportunity to attend some wonderful events, and I'd love to take you along for a virtual tour:

Let's start at the Conference Center on Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah, last Friday night. The Tabernacle Choir joined with the Orchestra at Temple Square and the Bells on Temple Square, along with dancers and guest artists Kelli O'Hara and Richard Thomas, to present a spectacular Christmas concert. Although I couldn't record any of the performance, the following 2-minute video from the church provides an overview:




The last time John and I had attended a Christmas concert by the Tabernacle Choir, they were still holding those conc…
