Win a pair of sunglasses or prescription eyeglasses from Coastal.com – a $300 value
By Jan Schroder
I hate wearing glasses. It’s a burden I’ve lived with since third grade, interrupted during periods of wearing contacts and then Lasik surgery. But my Lasik regressed a bit and contacts are no longer an option. So when I drive, watch TV or try to identify people across the room at parties, it’s glasses for me.
Added to the fact that I just feel plain ugly in my glasses, a pair can easily run you upwards of $300. But now I’ve discovered Coastal.com where attractive, designer glasses are very affordable.
I had a great time looking through the huge selection of cute frames, which includes dozens of brands include Armani, DKNY, Calvin Klein, Fendi, Jil Sander, Tommy Hilfiger, Oakley and Valentino. You can search by designer, or by style, shape, color or material. You can even upload a photo of yourself and “try” the glasses on to find a pair that suits you best. These are the exact same frames you’d find in high-end optical stores, but at much better prices. Contacts, regular sunglasses, reading glasses and a few accessories are available as well.
If you’ve never ordered glasses online, take a few minutes to check out the site. You do need to have your prescription available. And here’s a tip. Check the width of the frames when you are trying them on. I have a narrow-framed face so don’t want wide lenses.
I made my selection and after a few days, my brand-new beautiful glasses arrived in a lovely blue case, along with a small keychain with repair kit on it. My frames fit perfectly and are so comfortable and attractive, I actually don’t mind wearing them.
Coastal.com was founded by Roger Hardy in 2000 and is now one of the largest online retailers of contact lenses and glasses. And for every pair you buy, the company donates a pair of glasses to someone in need. Shipping is free on orders more than $99, and Coastal.com takes returns 365 days a year if you have a problem.
