Warby Parker vs. Eye Buy Direct

Not only did I have braces, but I wear glasses EVERY.SINGLE.DAY.

Back in the day, I was so embarrassed of my glasses. I even purposefully broke a pair in the sixth grade so I wouldn’t have to wear them lol!

Now, I love to get new frames! My eye doctor definitely has some face-flattering options, but geez oh man are they pricey!

Thankfully, I discovered Warby Parker and Eye Buy Direct. I own a pair of glasses from each site and Scott has a Warby pair.

Scott’s Warby Parker frames that I got him for Christmas last year!

I tried Warby back when I was in law school.  I used to wear thick framed Ray-Bans, but I wanted something more feminine. Warby definitely delivered. The lenses were so clear compared to my Ray-Bans that it almost felt like a new prescription.

Scott and I both agree that Warby provides quality glasses at reasonable prices-$95.  They recently opened a retail location in East Liberty that I can’t wait to check out.

My current pair from Warby, but I also like these!

Fast forward a few years, I’m still wearing my Warby’s but I wanted to add a funkier pair of glasses to my collection. I didn’t quite want to commit to another $95 pair, but I wanted a change. Enter, Eye Buy Direct. They offer very inexpensive fashionable frames. I picked up a pair for under $25 including lenses!!!!

^ OMG, Wilson’s tongue!

These are the Portrait frames that I currently own, but I’ve been eyeing this pair up recently.

I get compliments on my Eye Buy Direct glasses all the time! I would suggest using this site if you want to try something new, but don’t want to spend a lot of money.

So this isn’t much of a comparison, but rather I wanted to share my experiences with purchasing eyeglasses online.

Well, that’s all for now.

    I think Warby and eye direct are they way to go. I have loved every pair you have gotten and you forgot to tell how they send you several pair and let you try on in the privacy of your home. So much better than being rushed at eye dr where the attendant is breathing down your neck. Nice post !!!!
