Product Reviews Review

Living in Florida, sunglasses are a must year round but especially in the summer when the sun is blazingly bright. A few months ago, I had purchased a pair of prescription sunglasses and paid over $300. Not long after that, the sunglasses fell out of my beach bag and were lost on a boating trip. I was so disappointed and vowed never to pay that much again for sunglasses.

Thankfully, has discount sunglasses (and eyeglasses) that are very stylish and extremely affordable. Touted as the World’s #1 Online Optical Store™, has a huge selection of eyeglasses and sunglasses for men, women and children. With lots of styles starting at only $39 it is a very affordable option.

Here is what I learned about

  • * The company is owned and operated by 2 eye doctors.
  • * Eyeglasses are totally AMERICAN made (all others get their glasses made in China) so our quality control is superior.
  • * Fast turn-around time and (if you have an emergency) we do offer next day glasses for a little extra.
  • * FREE Shipping available to all of our active service men and women no matter where they are serving!

I have had wonderful experiences purchasing prescription eyeglasses online, so I decided to get a pair of sunglasses from I like that it is very easy to browse the selection available on the website and the sunglasses can be viewed by preference such as metal, plastic, rimless, or bendable titanium. It was so hard to choose from all of the fabulous styles but I ultimately selected the Sofia Sunglasses.

I was thrilled that the Sofia prescription sunglasses are so affordable at only $53.95. This includes the frame with tinted Rx lenses, UV & scratch coatings and polished edges. I selected “black” for the frames out of the available colors including blue or brown. I particularly like that each pair of glasses notes the sizes because I was easily able to pick out a frame size similar to my previous pair which was very flattering for my face shape. You can even print out an actual size picture of the glasses to make sure it is exactly what you are looking for. You can also customize your lenses and I was able to upgrade to Tinted Polycarbonate High Index Sun Lenses for only $10 extra. It was simple to enter my prescription and customer service is always available to help if you have any questions.

I couldn’t wait for my sunglasses to arrive from Even though I have ordered eyeglasses online successfully in the past, there is always a bit of apprehension wondering if the new sunglasses will be the right fit. When my new sunglasses arrived, I was thrilled! The Sofia style was even more flattering than I anticipated and I love the style details on the frame that make these sunglasses “pop.” The fit was very comfortable and the prescription was perfect. My new sunglasses are durable and offer very nice protection from the sun’s rays. No more squinting and fine wrinkles for me from the sun!

My final cost for the Sofia prescription sunglasses including the upgrade was under $70 which is a mere fraction of the price that I paid for my prior pair at the optometrist’s office. At these prices, I can afford to buy another pair to keep one in my car and another in my bag.
