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.

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Ten Things of Thankful: California Poppies

Spring has arrived.  On Wednesday, I took off for a few hours to hike.  The weather was perfect:  the sun was shining, the wind kept itself to a cool, slight breeze (as opposed to Thursday, when the sustained wind speed was 37.5 mph), and the temperature was warm, but not oppressive.  

My Ten Things of Thankful list this week will be mostly made of photos.  Each time I climbed another hill, or turned another corner, I was delighted with the new view.  Come along with me!

The poppy fields can be seen from miles away.

Many other people had the same idea I had on Wednesday. The line to get into the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve was longer than I've ever seen it. Many cars turned around and decided to just park on the main street and hike into the reserve.

Once I finally got the car parked and started to hike, I was greeted with wonderful views.  I hiked the steepest and furthest trails, and was rewarded by moments of solitude.
