About a month ago, I blogged about my favorable experience buying eyeglasses online from a place called EyeBuy Direct. The very next day, I received an email from another online eyewear company, asking if I would be interested in receiving a free pair of eyeglasses in exchange for a no-strings-attached review of their glasses, service and website. Since a girl can never have too many pairs of eyeglasses, I agreed.
The company’s name is Firmoo, which sounds more like some new-age dairy product than an optical store, but what do I know? On my first visit to their website, they appeared to have an extensive collection of frames and lots of good information about purchasing eyewear online, but something was just a little bit off. I kept on reading and concluded I was not dealing with a U.S.-based company. All the text was written in English but with a twist. For example:
Now I get it. Firmoo is in China and English is some marketer’s second language. That’s cool. I can handle it. Free glasses are free glasses.
Aside from making me giggle, their website has a few features that I really liked, such as closeup photographs of all parts of the frames and the ability to try on many pairs of glasses at one time:
|I’m all for seeing clearly and looking smart.|
|Do these glasses make me look like a Republican?|
