Eye Buy Direct Fashion Eye Glasses *Review & Giveaway!


I had LASIK, so why do I want eye glasses? I am sure that’s what you are going to be asking as to why I wanted to order a pair of eye glasses. Well, I love eyeglasses. I did not like wearing my prescription (just because I was 8 when I got my first pair of glasses), but I love all the beautiful and stylish frames that are out there. Well, last month I had an opportunity to work with Family Review Network and EyeBuyDirect to order a pair of frames. I chose to order the “Donna” frame with non-prescription lenses.



Rectangular glasses where metal and plastic combine to offer a frame that is lightweight and resilient. Very comfortable to wear, it will feel like you are wearing nothing. Observe the unique pattern on the side bars. Our new crush!

Wearing eyeglasses for fashion seems to be a popular trend these days, so I figured “Why not!” I LOVE my Donna frames! They are adorable and very well made! I decided to get an Anti-Scratch lens to help protect the lenses from wear. I have to say that these glasses are truly adorable! The entire order process was great; the shipping was super fast and the product is more than I had expected!

The glasses that I ordered were for ‘fashion’, but you have the chance to win a pair of eyeglasses for fashion or for prescription use (not including sunglasses and designer frames), including any upgrade up to $100 and 100% free shipping. Truly a great deal! Non-Prescription glasses- Every frame can be fitted with a blank lens. All that needs to be done is select “Fashion” under the “I use my glasses for” on the prescription page. Very easy to get started, get your order and super fast turn around!

  1. I need a new pair of glasses, the lenses I have now are pretty scrathed up. I like the MOHO1 frames from the site.

  2. Lily Kwan says:

    I need a new pair of glasses very much because I have had the same ones for a long time.

  3. Suanne Giddings says:

    Like many others, I desperately need a new pair of glasses. My right lens keeps popping out (I had to buy a repair kit so I would have new screws and a small screwdriver – even with a coat of clear polish the screw does not hold))and the protective coating has begun peeling off. It has been 8 years since I last got a new pair of glasses. This is a wonderful prize for those of us that must wear glasses (contact lenses are not an option for me). Thank you for the opportunity to participate in this giveaway!

  4. I need a new pair. mine are looking rough.

  5. Stephanie says:

    I don’t need a new pair of glasses. I would actually love these for my mom
    she is so complaining about her eyesight and I hate hearing her complain
    thanks for the opportunity

  6. I need a new pair t h i s m u c h…that mean’s I also need a new perscription.

  7. Ok, I think I have done it all, Thanks now I have your really cute button on my blog. Feel free to stop over and check it out.

  8. I blogged about this giveaway. It is honestly one of the greatest giveaways I have ever seen. I guess because I would love to win it so badly. I really need new glasses.
    Thanks again.
    My blog is

  9. I checked out Gary, looks like he found the right pair of glasses.
    Terrific buys, Great Glasses.

  10. I could really use a new pair of glasses. I have the pair that I wear everyday all day long, The only pair. They are missing a nose piece and the screw that holds the lens in has fallen out. I put a replacement screw in, but the lens still seems to pop out occassionally. I really like the Pash glasses. (bifocals) I saw several others that are fabulous.
    Thanks for sharing

  11. reva skie says:

    I haven’t gotten new glasses in 7 years. I am due for some.

  12. I got my current pair of glasses in January 2009. I quickly found that I hate the frames; they’re very small and I see “around” them all the time. It’s really irritating. Since I’m getting older, it probably is about time to have another eye exam, but I can’t really afford new glasses right now. If I win a pair, it’s a great incentive. I like the Patsy in pink metal, because they look a little taller than my current pair.

  13. WIN WIN WIN!!!

  14. Jennifer J says:

    My glasses are quite old and stretched out. I could really use some fresh new glasses. Thanks!!

  15. i’ve had my prescription for two years because i can’t afford them!


  16. My current frames have no nose pieces so I’m in desperate need of new glasses.

  17. Laura G says:

    just got a new script due to headaches…with insurance it made more sense to get contacts and not new lenses…now i cannot wear my glasses because they give me headaches and we so cannot afford new lenses right now

  18. wow – read my mind – need to go get a new perscription and if I win could save me BIG on the glasses -= so many great styles

  19. My son can be a little rough on his frames and can always use a new pair

  20. Marcy Strahan says:

    I tired on the Kansas & kinda liked them!
    I think I would have to play with this for hours before I made a final choice.
    I like plastic frames………don’t like those nosebridge wire thingys.
    Ithe Kansas ones are Hot!

  21. Marcy Strahan says:

    I am using Dollar store glasses right now. This is bad becasue my right eye is worst than my left……so I need stonger strenght on the right than the left.
    Medicade will only do glasses every three years……..& I broke my last pair!
    I got another year before I can get glasses again.
    I often type in UPPER CASE………not because I am shouting but so that I can see.

  22. Betty C says:

    I uploaded a photo but I’m not the greatest at figuring out everything so it took me a while to adjust the photo and the frames so they were aligned. And since my photo included glasses it was a bit distracting to try to pick out the best frames. But the Anna won out.

  23. Betty C says:

    My prescription frames finally bit the dust. One lens won’t stay in, the screws are constantly falling out and the last straw – the frame actually broke!

  24. Isaac A. says:

    I like the “Marco” glasses, I broke 4 pairs of glasses playing basketball, now I wear contacts when I play. But I need a new pair of glasses, been using this pair for many years.

  25. Veronica Garrett says:

    I haven’t had a new pair of glasses in six years. I need a new pair real bad.

  26. Laura Weiss says:

    would love a new pair of prescription glasses, i find glasses always more than i can afford

  27. I need a new pair, but just don’t have the money to get new ones myself right now. I am trying to make do with the ones I have for as long as I can….but with twin toddlers who think it’s funny to pull them off of Mommy’s face, it won’t be long until I truly need a new pair!

  28. I only have one pair of glasses and the paint is peeling off. I have no insurance to go to the doctor and my husband just got laid off. I could really use a new pair.

  29. Jennifer says:

    I so need a new pair of glasses! I haven’t had eye insurance for awhile and I definitely need a new pair. The selection looks great! I really like the women’s West frames. Thanks so much!

  30. Cory Gemborys says:

    Timberland TB1003 $79.95
    Designer Eyeglasses

    Those would be my glasses of choice!

  31. I uploaded my photo to the “wall of frames” (fun feature!): http://www.eyebuydirect.com/share/nW2WYFu6GpfPHZm

  32. I could really use a new pair of glasses — my current ones got badly scratched when I got hit in the face with a tennis ball while playing a match last fall (no lie!), so I could sorely use a new set of frames. My favorite frames would have to be the Jigsaw 220C948 in silver/gray; really stylish glasses at a very reasonable price.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  33. My glasses are 10-years-old. I could really use a new pair.

  34. I could use some new frames. Ones that are constructed better than the ones I have now so I don’t have to tighten screws on them every other day to prevent the lenses from falling out.

  35. Jennifer c. says:

    I could really use a pair of prescription sunglasses. My solution now is to pop a pair of dollar store shades over my regular eyeglasses when I’m driving if it is bright.

  36. I need new glasses because the ones I have are held together with a wee bit of duct tape, and I don’t get new frames for another 4 months.

  37. I reviewed the photo of Kiyomi on the Wall of Frame. Thanks!
    lisalmg25 at gmail dot com

  38. My glasses are old, plain, and so boring. I would love the win the cute and modern Donna frrames! Thanks!
    lisalmg25 at gmail dot com

  39. I haven’t gotten new glasses in 4 years and really need a new pair! Thanks for the giveaway!

  40. Candie L says:

    I like the Eyre style. I need new glasses because I broke mine recently and I have nothing to back up my contacts. Thank you

  41. I recently had to buy new glasses, after having the same set for about 3 years. I need to have a backup, as I tend to break them, and I need glasses to drive.

  42. Well, I don’t need a new pair but DH does! His good pair got “lost” at work, so we are down to one pair that was bought more for fashion than work purposes, and I live in fear something will happen to them before we get his work ones replaces! (he can’t drive without them, and I can’t drive at all!)

  43. Tommy Johnson says:

    I like the Beach Frames!

    Thanks as always!
    Thomas Johnson

  44. LeeAnn P. says:

    How bad do I need new glasses? Promise not to laugh – I had Bell’s Palsy so one eye doesn’t blink (it should get better w/time) I can’t wear my contacts for very long and what happens but my only pair of glasses breaks! I am using them w/only one earpiece. Hilarious. Oh yeah, I need new glasses in the worst way! And I think like the Timberland TB1014 – Rose!

  45. I like the the titanium Cat eyeglasses. I desperately need new glasses. My last pair broke and I am using my spare pair with the old prescription. They are so scratched, that I can barely see out of them. I haven’t had new glasses in several years and would treasure a new pair.

    theladyswimmer at yahoo dot com

  46. I like the Phoenix rimless glasses

  47. Kerri Malary says:

    I love the Anna Titanium Eyeglasses!!

  48. I reviewed this picture at the wall of frames. I think these frames are lovely.

  49. I need a new pair of glasses because frankly with the great prices at eyebuydirect there is no excuse to just have one pair, and I’m always forgetting where I put mine-it would be nice to have a pair just for the car-seems like I always leave them at home just when I need them.


  50. ky2here says:

    I’d like the men’s Donna frames.

  51. christopher h says:

    i’d get the men’s Carol – Golden – Metal Eyeglasses, its been a couple of years since i had a new pair and i’m due

  52. jennifer gersch says:

    Phoenix brown rimless

  53. It’s time for me to give in and get the eyes checked. I’m having trouble seeing the TV clearly. I’ve had good vision for so long…..glasses, just don’t sound that appealing. Eye Buy Direct has a great selection!

  54. Jenny Ham says:

    I think I would pick something simple like Merlin frameless. I just found out I need glasses for the first time it would be wonderful to win some. I am a little freaked out I hate change and how to pick some I don’t have a clue where to start.

  55. Michael says:

    If fortunate enough, I would select the Yukon style. My need stems from the fact that my loving wife does some things that make it where I can’t see straight! :)

  56. I really need new glasses. I had my eyes checked last about 3 years ago. Now I’m noticing that when I’m driving things in the distance are getting fuzzy. Somehow that $300 isn’t anywhere near being in my budget! Thanks for the chance!
    hondaray6 at hotmail dot com

  57. Was thinking of the Eyre rimless but the yukon rimless look smaller….

  58. I blogged about your giveaway here. what a great contest.


  59. They would be for my husband. He was laid off three days ago and this would be a nice gift for a little lift.

  60. My glasses are three years old, so I need a pair so bad! I like almost any kind with wire frames.

  61. Kathy Conley says:

    I would choose the Press flexlite design for my 12 year old daughter who just found out she needs glasses!

  62. My daughter got mine and broke them , so i need to get a new pair:)

  63. Okay, here is my sob story lol

    I REALLY need a new pair of glasses. I call my current glasses Revenge of the Nerds. I got them when I was pregnant with my son (he’s almost 7!), and he used to be attracted to them like a magnet. Both arms have been broken off so many times that they’re held on with tape. Tape! On the dreadful occasions when something goes wrong with my contacts, it’s horrible to wear them out in public lol

    Thankfully he’s old enough now that he can be trusted around my glasses. Because he’s scared of me now. lol (I’m kidding!) Thanks much!

  64. Great, I need to update my glasses

  65. I have had my pair of glasses for 8 years–I am the responsible one in the family who does not break or lose them. :) –so I would love to have a more updated style.

  66. My dog just chewed up the lenses on my glasses~
    My darn lil shih tzu!
    I need a new pair very BADLY!

  67. I heart the Beverly $34.95

  68. I am actually hoping to win this for my dad, he really needs new glasses.

  69. I desperately need an extra pair. I wear glasses daily, have only one pair and my baby daughter has become really interested in them and I know for a fact that one of these days she will knock them off my face somehow.

  70. I have lost 2 (yes 2 ) pairs of glasses in the past 6 months, this would be really great.

  71. Ken Robinson says:

    I like the Racer – Gunmetal – Metal Eyeglasses. Please accept my entry. Thank you.

  72. Their eyeglasses look really good and cheap too. I want a pair!

  73. I just went to the eye dr on SAturday and for no line progressive glasses it was close to $350. I got a copy of my prescription and left and will try to find them cheaper elsewhere – like maybe here!!

  74. They have some great frames! I would love to have another pair of glasses in a different style just so I could change it up every once in awhile.

  75. sandra kao says:

    i really need a new pair of glasses to replace the ones my sons have mutilated

  76. The Miami Frames in purple are my fav! Thank you so much!

  77. I am a subscriber.

  78. They have a great selection and great proces. I would love to win this for my daughter who wears glasses she is a tween and just hates wearing the same glasses. I know she would love the Anna Titanium Eyeglasses.

  79. Here’s the link to my tweet: http://twitter.com/pricousins/status/1244798313

  81. I am currently unemployed and can’t afford to buy a new pair of eyeglasses to replace mine I broke 2 months ago.

    if i won i would pick the Phoenix – Black – Rimless Eyeglasses

  85. Eric's Mommy says:

    I had LASIK too but would love a pair of fashion glasses!


  86. I just got a new prescription at the eye doctor a couple of weeks ago, and I haven’t gotten new glasses yet. I’d love to get a serious pair and a fun, funky pair. I’ve never had a pair of prescription glasses that’s for fun, because glasses cost so darn much in the regular stores. I would love to shop online and pick out a few frames and have a wardrobe of glasses!

  87. I cold use an affordable pair of glasses-they cost so much no matter where you go

  88. Vicky Boackle says:

    i like the tammy glasses.

  89. Jennifer G says:

    My glasses are 6 years old, the wrong prescription, and so scratched that I can’t see through them. I’m also about to run out of contacts and can’t afford the new exam I will need to get more. I’m very close to being SOL..

  90. Gabriel J. says:

    I really like the Merlin – Green – Rimless Eyeglasses.

  91. Devon Weisz says:

    I have been putting it off because we don’t have the money, but I can’t read road signs as well at night any more so I know its time to replace them, the sooner the better

  92. Jennifer B. says:

    I like the “Mara – Brown – Fashion Eyeglasses”.

  93. My husband needs to have bifocals, but won’t consider it since his “new” glasses are only a year old. Free frames would ease his pain!

  94. I love glasses and sunglasses, and I sure need a pair, wait…why just one?
    It’s great that they are so affordable, you’re not stuck forever with just one pair! It gets boring pretty fast :)
    So why I need one? Well…just because

    I like Princess, Parsley and Donna

    Thanks :)

  95. My current glasses are held together with a paper clip and a prayer! I need a new pair!

  100. I’ve been putting off getting new glasses for almost a year now! My insurance used to cover at least some of the cost…but not anymore! I like the “Glow” frames the best!

  101. Would love to try this way to shop for glasses.

  102. It has been a few years and I need new glasses and a new perscription

  103. I like the Guess GU1303 – Black and red – Designer Eyeglasses, I could use a new pair but I might need bifocals so I might need to select a different pair.
    I’ve ordered online successfully before not just for me but for my family and friends too, it sure saves you a lot of money.

  104. I would have never thought to buy glasses this way! As my glasses are driving me nuts! this could be my next new pair!

  108. i don’t need a pair per se but my hubby does big time. i know he wears them but he has yet to take himself to get some. i looked at the men’s selection and the ones that i liked for him were the Soul and they were 39.95 which is a darn good price! thanks for the chance!

  109. I want to look cute in a hot new pair of glasses!

  110. My bifocals are showing the results of being run over by a car. (Luckily the driveway was gravel and they got dinged and scratched, but not totally smashed.) I’d love to have a new pair.

  159. I really need a new pair of glasses. I have been wearing the same style for about 5 years! I think it has been about 3 years since my last visit..I really should go. With the frames I have now the lense pops out every so often and I have to eventually change the screw in the arm of the frame because it has been tightened too much.

  160. veronica sandberg says:

    I want to see too

  161. DAVID BREWSTER says:

    I could use a new pair of glasses.
