I can’t believe it, but this website just turned one! Over the course of a year, we’ve gone from an unknown to one of the top websites on the topic of buying eyewear online. I remember the day when my glasses arrived…the first pair I ever bought online. I thought, "wow, these are just like the glasses I typically buy from the optometrist for $300." I ordered a pair to replace my daily wearers and also a pair of prescription aviator sunglasses. One year later, they are holding up just fine although I did have to replace the nosepad on my daily wearers after about ten months (no biggie…any standard eyeglass repair kit from the supermarket checkout will have a replacement nosepad).
Click here to read my first ever post: "Where it all began…" You’ll even see a video of the first glasses I purchased online.
Over the past twelve months, we’ve posted on a variety of topics, from helping our readers buy glasses like those worn by some notable celebrities to encouraging support for worthy non-profit / charity organizations that help people see (GIVE better glasses!)
GetBetterGlasses is all about helping you make the best decision when purchasing your next pair of glasses. In May, we posted a comparison of top internet retailers and before that in April, we explained how to buy designer eyewear — the exact same makes and brands that your eye doctor carries — over the internet at a great savings.
It has been a great year! Many thanks to our loyal readers and commenters 🙂
