I've been dying to write about these for at least a few weeks now, but I just haven't gotten around to it. Luckily, today feels like a mighty good day to show off my new glasses :)
I got these from Coastal through their "first pair of frames free" promotion. I'd been hearing a lot about it, and it had been a year since I got a new pair of glasses. So after looking over the site for a few days and doing some research, I picked out the Derek Cardigan brown/ pink fades. Love!!
My experience is that it's indeed true that your frames are free. However, there were coatings and shipping and handling charges. And because I have such a high prescription, I required the thinnest lenses possible. So my "free" glasses still ended up being about $100. Which I still think is a sweet deal, considering my sucky eyes.
Even so. I love them. LOVE THEM.
I should also probably mention one drawback. I notice that when I wear them for an extended amount of time- like a full day- I've been getting optical migraines. It's usually when I'm on the computer for too long.
However, I think this might be because my official written prescription for glasses was -6.75. Last year, when I ordered glasses online I used these numbers, and they were just slightly out of focus. So I rounded up to -7 for this pair. I can see perfectly out of them, but looking at tiny letters on a computer all day are probably a bit much for my eyes to take. That's what I'm hoping, anyway. Does this sound like a reasonable explanation, or does anyone else know why this might be happening?
I'll just try not to wear them for too long/ work on a computer from now on. Until then, I'm in luvvv.
