Help Me Choose Some Affordable Eyeglasses!


Living on a law school budget, I'm on a search for affordable eyeglasses. That's why I'm so excited that my five Home Try-On pairs of Warby Parker eyeglasses arrived today! I placed my order on Monday night and received the trial pairs late Friday afternoon. As I mentioned before, Warby Parker offers eyelasses with anti-reflective, polycarbonate lenses for just $95 per pair, plus free shipping! Also, their Home Try-On program is FREE. It was too good of a deal to leave unexplored.

So, I've got the eyeglasses in my hot, little hands, and the clock is now ticking! I have until Tuesday to try them out and then I need to ship them back (postage-paid) via UPS. Wanna help me decide? Check out the photos below and then vote in the poll in the sidebar! I've also noted the different colors that I would consider for each style. If you think a different color would be better, let me know in the comments!

I like the Reece, the square frame/shape is very nice on you. Good luck. :) Picking glasses is not an easy decision.

Janel, which ones are most similar to your current readers? I am leaning toward the Nedwin frames. They are square but soft at the edges. What do your friends/family think??

Janel said...

Right now, my current glasses are black with an oval-ish frame shape. They are most similar to the Leigh. L and E like the Nedwin the best because of the color, but my husband likes the Reece the best. I'm really excited to get everyone's opinion. Thanks for your help!

Hi Nellie,

I like the Reece but think they need to be a tad smaller. Do the glasses come in different sizes?

The glasses don't come in different sizes. It is one size per style. I guess that is one of the ways that they keep their prices down.

Hey Janel. If you need me to come see give me a call or come down to the house with your favorites. By looking at the pics I am leaning toward the Nedwin. Let me know.

Hi Janel. I like the Langston and the Leigh. Charlie has Warby Parkers and LOVES them. I think his might be Nedwin. These names crack me up. Good luck choosing!

Thanks Angela & Sarah! It's pretty cool to be able to keep the frames at home for a few days. Definitely helps me get a feel of the different comfort levels of them.
