Scout Glasses*: Glasses Direct
I worked out I spend nearly 12 hours a day of my working week staring at a computer screen. On top of that my weekends are usually spent catching up with blog work, which means many more hours staring at a screen. I've always had pretty good eyesight until I started an office job in where I've felt those endless hours straining my eyes at a screen have started to take a toll on my eyesight.
Last month, I decided to finally book an overdue eye test at my local opticians. Low and behold, my eyes have deteriorated as I had predicted. Luckily it wasn't by too much and I'm long-sighted rather than short-sighted. This means I am bloody fantastic at spotting which number bus is coming from a long distance!
Luckily, Glasses Direct came to the rescue and offered me a pair of prescription frames to review. Predictably I was instantly drawn to these very 70's, tortoise shell, oversized frames by Scout. After submitting my prescription, they took around a week to arrive which allowed enough time for the lenses to be fitted to the frames.
Choosing a pair of frames online can be difficult but significantly cheaper than choosing in an opticians. How are you meant to decide without trying several pairs of frames on first? To overcome this problem Glasses Direct have a 'virtual try on' system where you can try the frames on with your webcam! Awesome, right?
If you'd rather try on a few different frames IRL, Glasses Direct have got that covered with their 7 day free home trial where you can choose up to 4 pairs of frames to try on at home before you commit to buying. Handy, huh?
