Firmoo Computer Glasses

I am incredibly lucky to have decent eyesight. In fact, when I went for my driver's test, the lady kept making the letters smaller and smaller after I passed the eye exam just to see how good my eyesight really was- she was impressed. I think my good eyesight is because I ate so many carrots as a kid.

About a month ago, I was contact by Firmoo- an online eyeglasses store- asking if I would do a review for them. I had heard of them before, and knowing that I don't wear eyeglasses, I wasn't sure that there would be an opportunity to work with them. Before replying to their email, I poked around their website to see what they offered. 

I was surprised to see that besides prescription eyeglasses, they also offered sunglasses, fashion (non-prescription) glasses, reading glasses and computer glasses. While I was tempted to try a pair of Fashion Glasses (I've owned a pair for years), I decided to try Computer Glasses.

Before checking out Firmoo, I had never even heard of Computer Glasses! What are computer glasses? They are glasses that alleviate symptoms of Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) by enhancing vision, reduce glares and protect against radiation from computer screens. As someone who spends all day in front of a computer for work, and all night in front of a computer as a hobby (hi blog, hi social media), I thought that computer glasses would be a good choice.
And choice I had! Colour, size, shape and frame...so many options!! I ended up going with these:

Full Frame Red Glasses
Red is my favourite colour, which was ultimately the deciding factor.

The verdict? I like them! I have no way of really knowing if they are doing anything to protect my eyes, without seeing an eye doctor for before/after exams. But I have noticed that my eyes don't feel strained or tired after looking at a computer screen all day. Since the lenses are not prescription, I was able to wear the glasses all day, right away...nothing for my eyes to adjust too. 
Don't even get me started on the compliments!! I've had so many people tell me that they love the glasses; the colour is great and they are very fashionable (other people's words...which I don't disagree with).

The glasses also came with a case (pictured...it's a map, how cute is that?!?!?), a bag, screwdriver and cloth. Firmoo also has an option to upload a photo of yourself so you can see how different frames will look on you.

I love these glasses so much, I wear them all the time- even if I'm not in a front of a computer.
