I am amazed at how far we have come as far as optical frames are concerned. When I was fourteen, I learned that I needed glasses (this was in the early 80’s). Needless to say, I was not very happy. The frames available at that time were hideous, and I refused to wear them. Instead, I chose contact lenses.
These days it seems that people even wear glasses if they don’t need them, just because the frames look so good. It is really neat how the right pair of eyeglasses/frames can change the whole look of a face, just by changing the frame. If I were told that I needed glasses now, I wouldn’t be nearly as upset as I was when I was a teenager (I have since had corrective surgery). My daughter is “blessed” with my lousy vision, but she had a completely different reaction than I did as a teen. She had a blast trying on different frames, and found several that she liked.
I have found an online eyeglasses company that I can’t wait to share with her – Zenni Optical. She is ready for a new pair of glasses and there are several reasons she is going to love this site. For one thing, she can try on glasses virtually (how neat is that?). I just spent quite a bit of time trying on different frames, and it was quite fun! Here is one example of a frame I tried on. Cute, right?:
I don’t know about you, but I would rather less money on eyewear, and buy more fun stuff for my family for the holidays. Luckily Zenni Optical has some fantastic prices. There is no need to spend oodles of money when you can buy stylish but cheap eyeglasses, right? I can buy frames for my whole family at Zenni Optical for probably about the same amount I would spend on one pair elsewhere. Now THAT is something to be happy about! I think my kids would appreciate this too, as I would be able to afford some fun gifts since I would be paying so little for glasses. I would have the extra money to spend on gifts kids really want.
In addition to the huge variety of every day frames, Zenni Optical has some really festive holiday frames as well. I really liked these, and I think it would be so fun to wear these to holiday parties, or during the whole holiday season.
Zenni Optical has a great selection of eyeglasses and frames for the entire family (the kid’s frames are darling!). No matter what style you are looking for, I’ll bet you can find it at Zenni Optical. They have a wide array of color choices, materials, and styles to choose from, and since you can try them on virtually, the guesswork is taken out of the equation. You will know exactly how they will look on your face, before ordering!
What about you? Do you or someone in your family wear eyeglasses? What are your favorite frames on the Zenni Optical website?
