The Eyes Have It – A Travelgirl Giveaway!

Win a pair of sunglasses or prescription eyeglasses from – 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.

Designer sunglasses, prescription glasses, contact lenses and reading glasses are available at fantastic prices at

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 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. 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 takes returns 365 days a year if you have a problem.

Travelgirl is giving away to one lucky winner a credit of $300 to use on the site. To enter to win, just comment anywhere on our blog and you’re automatically entered.

Contest ends April 30, 2101.

    I just received a new prescription for my glasses and was disappointed in the selection at the optometrist. I’ve been searching online and I must say, has some of the prettiest glasses of all the online companies. I’m very smitten with a pretty pink pair they have on sale right now!

    OMG THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU so so so so so soooooo VERY much (I cannot thank you enough!) for this!!!!!!!(: I soooooo GREATLY appreciate it(:!!! I do not own ANY sunglasses at the moment that’s right summer is coming and I do not have ANYTHING to protect my poor eyeballs from the harmful UV rays of the sun 😦 With school and everything, I really cannot afford a good pair right now, unfortunately, and I am trying not to buy a cheap pair because usually they do not look very good and are really bad quality and break/scratch/get really dirty/etc. easily and all the money you put buying those cheap pairs add up to the amount you could have bought an expensive pair witch I have been needing(really badly, especially when driving and the sun is shining, trust me the visor thing in the car does not work, and for A LOT of other reasons too) a good pair of sunglasses that will last me a long while(trust me, I take amazing care of my stuff my ipod still looks new and I got it 5 years ago) and that are really fashionable and my style and cute and the selection at are all of the above and MORE I would FINALLY FINALLY FINALLY be able to own my dream pair of sunglasses, that would be PERFECTION:)!!! PLUS…I REALLY need new frames for my glasses my frames broke and with this I could get BOTH sunglasses and glasses and the BEST kind at HIGHESt quality my DREAMS come true<3!!! My e-mail is THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU SO SO SO MUCH FOR THIS:)!!!!!!!!
