Designer Prescription Glasses Delivered – Ottica
If you know me you know that I wear prescription glasses for distance. I think I started wearing glasses back in the 6th grade when I noticed I just couldn’t see the board as crisp far away as when I was close. I didn’t wear the glasses all the time, but when I needed to see distance (TV, the blackboard, the softball during games) I made sure to have them on.
Glasses back then (90’s) were not super fashionable, especially for a kid.
As I got older, I wore them to drive. I also had my parents spring for prescription sunnies because we spent so much time outside and I felt like my eyes were sensitive to light and I wanted to see!
Now a days you won’t catch me outside without my sunnies on. I wear them inside and outside. Yeah, I’m that person who open just keeps my sunglasses on in the store because I keep my regular glasses on my nightstand! Since I don’t need them 24/7 I don’t bother keeping both pairs on hand all the time. I keep my regular glasses by my bed for binge watching BRAVO TV at night once the kids are asleep. You know, priorities.
Just recently after nearly 8 years I went for an eye exam. I knew my old glasses and sunglasses just weren’t cutting it, but kids, moving, and life moving quickly an eye exam just didn’t fit in. I liked my frames too and wasn’t ready to have to make the hard decision of choosing something new. Is that weird?! I actually didn’t want to shop!
Well, my eyes check out. But, my prescription changed a bit. Changed enough that I needed to upgrade my sunglasses and everyday glasses. There was no hope for salvaging the old frames, but I kept them as a spare. We have decent eye insurance and I was able to get some really nice designer frames.
A few weeks after that OTTICA reached out and asks me to try out their service. I was excited to score some more sunglasses now that I had my new prescription!
Ordering online was easy. They have several major designers to chose from like Ray-Ban, Burberry, COACH, Tory Burch, Versace, Michael Kors, and more!
I loved my RayBan aviators that I had been wearing for the past 8 years. Timeless frames that look great with anything. I had chosen a plastic Tory Burch frame at the eye doctor so I knew I wanted to grab another pair from Ray-Ban. I went with the Ray-Ban Erika.
You may be skeptical to buy glasses online when you can’t try them on, BUT this site makes it really easy. You can access your camera from your computer or phone, take a quick pic, and upload it to the site to see how the frame will look on your face. Or, you can swipe through the models and get a sense of how the frames look on different face shapes. All this from the comfort of your own home. No one to pressure you into making a decision you might not be ready to make.
When I chose my frames at the eye doctor, I went home without buying anything. I had the office assistant write down the frames I liked best and then went home to think. I went back a week later and placed my order. For a busy mom of three, this isn’t the best use of my time. Then, back again once the frames came in to pick them up – with my three kids in tow!
Once your chose a frame, it is time to chose a lens. You can get the frames with or without prescription lenses.
OTTICA features a wide range of lenses for your sunglasses. They offer several lens thickness packages tailored for the most common preferences and beyond. Most lenses can be custom tailored to meet your specific needs and wants. Tints for sunglasses are available in standard, polarized, or mirrored.
Best of all, with OTTICA, if you are not 100% satisfied, just send the glasses back and you will receive a full money back refund. No shipping return charge. No questions asked. All this with a 365 day warranty.
My OTTICA order arrived to me in about 7-10 days. A nice little package with a lens cleaning cloth, my glasses in their case, and a quick reference card with my script to keep in my wallet. And, because I placed an order I am now eligible to receive 15% off my next order. SWEET!
