I've worn glasses for the past three years. Initially, I needed them because my vision was getting worse. And while I still need them, they have become more of a fashion statement, and that it the main reason I haven't switched to contacts.
Now, I think I just look better with eyeglasses than without.
Shopping for eye glasses online is actually something I look forward to. I do most of my other shopping online, so shopping for eyeglasses is no different. Plus, it beats having to go into the store and have to wait in line and everything else. I know my style and prescription, and I save a TON of money by buying online from sites like GlassesUSA.com.
If you don't know your style (mine is a rectangle frame with slightly rounded edges), GlassesUSA.com has a virtual mirror where you can upload a photo of yourself, and try on different glasses frames. It's very useful, and you can even send the photos to your friends/family to see what they think before you make a purchase.
GlassesUSA.com has a 110% lowest price guarantee and a 100% satisfaction guarantee-- this makes me confident that I am getting the best deal, and if for any reason I am not happy with my new glasses, I can return them with out hassle.
