As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I’m a glasses-wearer. I have been since 8 years old when I was prescribed my first pair of reading glasses. But as an adult, I have some issues with distance, thus…glasses. I did try my hand at contact lenses a few years back, but they became a nuisance when they started to really bother one eye. I have a recurring eye pain in that one eye that seems to be seasonal in relation to allergies, and the contacts were a pain when I’d have episodes of that. My prescription isn’t horribly strong, and sometimes I do go without, especially in the summer when I wear sunglasses. My eyes are extremely sensitive to light, so sunglasses are a must. I’ve just never bit the bullet and purchased prescription sunglasses. Mostly due to cost. Glasses aren’t cheap. I buy all of my eyewear online these days.
But thanks to the internet, there are many companies who offer discounted eyewear. One such website is firmoo.com. I’d seen them around in my web surfing from time to time (do we still call it that? I’m aging myself…). They reached out to me last month, asking if I’d be interested in reviewing their products. I basically said “hell yes!” and my eyes said thank you.
I browsed the site and study the styles they offer, when I came across these beauties that reminded me of a Prada pair I’ve been lusting after, but can’t seem to afford because I don’t have $245 just laying around. Sigh…
these! These tortoise shell beauties arrived in my mailbox last week!
The tortoise shell detail was hard to photograph, since it’s a very dark
tortoise, but it’s gorgeous! The temples are jet black.
They’re extremely well-made, sturdy and the prescription is spot on! They arrived in the cutest vintage map case. It’s like they know me and my obsession with maps! Also included was a soft case, which I’m actually not a huge fan of. Only because the tie that gathers the opening closed doesn’t stay shut. But I think that will change with use as the fabric softens from use. They also included a large lens cleaning cloth that’s probably one of the best I’ve ever owned!
Overall, I’m very pleased with these. I love BIG sunglasses, and these fit the bill. They also have a very retro vibe, which also a requirement for any eyewear that adorns this face!

Firmoo.com has amazing prices. These sunglasses, with prescription and polarized lenses, are a steal for less than $100. You can also order any frame they offer without prescription. They’ll definitely be my staple accessory for summer!
