Firmoo - Gunmetal Glasses

Earlier this year I finally got my eyes checked for the first time. I never really thought I needed glasses, but I mostly just wanted to make sure my eyes were in good health since I had never had an eye exam. While I have pretty good vision, I do have a relatively weak prescription, so I finally got some glasses, courtesy of Firmoo!
Product sent for review. All opinions are my own.


I've had my prescription since about April, but finally got these glasses since Firmoo offered. I considered getting glasses straight from the optometrist where I got my eyes checked, but they were so expensive! Since my prescription isn't really vital to me being able to function, I decided not to get any while I was there.



However, I'm so glad that I actually got some, and it's thanks to Firmoo! While these were provided for review, I am honestly very happy that I got glasses in general, and I've been enjoying these ones so much that I actually ordered a second (different style) pair from Firmoo! And, the ones I ordered were a fraction of the optometrist's price. Each pair of glasses also comes with a hard case, soft storage pouch, cleaning cloth, and screwdriver with extra screws. You can see the hard case and cleaning cloth at the top.


These ones for my review are titanium. I got to choose from lots of different styles, but I really liked the look of these half frames! It seems that the front is actual titanium, so it is very sturdy but also very light. The arms came in a variety of colors, but I opted for Gunmetal. These arms seem to be a different material, which I think is just plastic, but they have been sturdy and comfortable so far either way.


The construction and materials seem great! I was afraid that they would be too wide, big, or heavy for my petite self, but they are not loose and stay in place nicely, and they are not too big for my face. While I love the look of thick rimmed, full frame glasses, I am glad I got these half frames since they're not as overwhelming. I wear a lot of eye makeup usually, so it's not too distracting too.


The glare in this photo looks a bit green, but my camera actually picked up some glare that you really don't see with the human eye! I did opt to pay for the additional anti glare coating on the lenses, so that might have to do with it. In person, there is no glare on the lenses, which helps for me driving during the day, but also for people who are looking at me!


The frames are very comfortable since they are so light too. Since I'm newer to wearing glasses most of the day, heavier frames make the top of my ears sore after a while! But it's probably also because my hair is weighing down the arms and adding to the weight. Either way, I don't get that with these frames, and I love them so much that they're my go-to pair!


So if you're in need of glasses, head on over to Firmoo.com. They have so many inexpensive frames for both glasses and sunglasses, and so many additional options to add to your lenses. And if you don't have a prescription, you can also get non-Rx glasses or sunglasses too!

  1. Thank you so much for a well written, easy to understand article on this. It can get really confusing when trying to explain it – but you did a great job. Thank you!

  2. I'm surprised that you didn't receive more comments about your glasses. Anyway you made a great choice for your first ever glasses. Actually i really do like the looks of semi-rimless glasses on women. And since these are your first glasses it was even better because many people get the full bold plastic frames and then they are bothered by seeing the bottom of the frame in their line of sight. And of course since your glasses don't have any frame at the bottom you never had that problem to deal with. Even though you apparently didn't have very much of a need for glasses it seems that you must wear them quite often or maybe even full time? Glasses really suit your looks very nicely and they must have been very comfortable to wear right away. It has been nearly 2 years since you started wearing glasses and I assume you have gotten a pair or 2 since then? (retired optician)
