Reasonably-priced eyewear from

At, they believe that people should not have to pay unreasonably high prices for quality eyeglasses. Seeing properly shouldn’t be a luxury – it should be a necessity.

An international company (with offices in New Jersey and Israel), GlassesUSA takes vision needs very seriously. Prescription glasses are produced at both facilities in order to provide customers with top quality lenses in the hottest frames available!

GlassesUsa gave me the opportunity to try out a pair of their rx eyeglasses recently. With so many different frames to choose from, I had a hard time making up my mind! I finally ended up ordering the First Lady eye glass frames from DC’s Washington Collection.

As you can see from the photos to the right, I’m thrilled with my choice! Retailing for $54.95, these black frames are stylish and sophisticated, but more importantly – they are comfortable. I’ve never owned plastic frames, so I wasn’t sure what to expect, but these are metal-based for a sturdy construction and added durability. What I like the most is that the rectangular shape elongates my round face. It’s like an optical illusion! Literally ;). One aspect I didn’t consider when ordering these frames is the width of the arms. It interferes a bit with my peripheral vision, but I’ve gotten used to it!

When you order a pair of eyeglasses from, you get:

  • Quality single vision lenses
  • Free case and cleaning cloth
  • Polished lens edges
  • 100% satisfaction guarantee

Basic lenses are included in the price, but you can add thinner lenses or special coatings for an extra charge. There are three methods for sending in your prescription – online, by fax, or by email – and shipping is free on orders over $99. Their return policy is simple – if you’re not 100% satisfied and don’t like your frames, just send them back and get a full refund or replacement eyeglasses.

A unique feature of GlassesUSA, is that their returned eyeglasses are not restocked as they are with most optical stores… they are “recycled”! Going along with their belief that everyone should have access to vision care, they donate all returned eyeglasses to various organizations around the US who then sanitize and redistribute the eyeglasses with the correct prescription to people all over the world who can’t afford vision care!
