As far as wearing glasses goes, I’m still a newbie. I only started needing them a couple of years ago, and even so, I rarely have to wear them. I admit I was kind of excited to need frames because then I could shop at Warby Parker.
Aside from their very reasonable prices, my favorite part about Warby Parker is their Home Try-On service. This is exactly what it sounds like: you go online, pick up to five frames and WP ships them straight to your door at no cost to you.
After a week, you get a cute reminder email to return the frames, from which you could directly order the frame(s) you like. Now when I tried this service out, it was simply for the purpose of this post because I don’t need new glasses right now. That being said, I picked frames at random, then my mom, sister and I had fun trying them on. Turns out, my sister looked amazing in two of the pairs and ended up ordering them for herself!
Anyway, you just ship the glasses back at the end of the week (again, no cost to you), and if you don’t like any of the frames there is no pressure to purchase. This service is great for people on the go, with or without insurance and also for those who don’t have direct access to a Warby Parker store.
