I'm part of the generation who grew up with the connotation that eyeglasses are dorky and should be left to the nerds. I remember some of my classmates getting picked on because they need to wear glasses, so kids like me who just need to correct a minor vision issue either never wore one or only wore one at home.
Back to the present, eyeglasses have evolved and is no longer just a necessity, but became a fashion and style statement. It's now a cool thing to wear glasses! A lot of brands took notice, and came out with fashionable pieces that'll cater to the style savvy. The downside? It also got more expensive to get one.
Then one company thought, the visually challenged deserve better. :)
Four Eyes PH is the first online optical store for prescription eyewear in Asia. They provide designer-quality frames and lenses at a fraction of the retail price. They offer prescription, non-prescription, computer glasses and reading glasses. All their eyeglasses costs Php1495, and they offer FREE shipping.
The perks of choosing what frame best suits me is really easy on Four Eyes' website. They have a VIRTUAL TRY-ON feature wherein you can upload your photo and "try on" glasses and see how they will look when you're wearing them. Pretty cool, right? It's like playing dress up with your paperdolls or Barbie dolls, only you're using your face. ;)
Don't have a webcam / photo available? No worries. They have this really helpful and efficient filtering system wherein you'll indicate your preferred style, shape, material, color and size of eyeglasses. I got to choose my own pair using this system because the Virtual Try-On wasn't available then. It was pretty simple for me. I wanted a black large plastic frames that'll suit my round face. The system gave me several options, and I chose Street Beat. They have styles for men, women, and unisex (just like mine).
If you're hesitant about the filtering system and the Virtual Try-On, then the Home Try-On Program is for you.
The Home Try-On Program (only available in the Philippines) let's you choose 3 of your favorite pairs and will let you test them out for 5 days to give you enough time to see which makes you feel and look best. In this program, you will only need to pay for 1 pair to any of their modes of payment (credit card, bank deposit, GCash or Smart Money). Once you've decided which pair you'll get, you will send them all back to Four Eyes (shipping is to be shouldered by Four Eyes) and they'll send you your chosen eyeglasses in 5 days.
Now forgive my narcissistic and vain selfies, but I just love my Four Eyes "Street Beat" glasses so much that these shots are called for. ;)
Four Eyes "Street Beat" Eyeglasses
I chose Street Beat because it suits my face shape, it's light and fits me like a glove. But most of all, because it's a classic style in a timeless color. I was supposed to get the red pair (see first photo) but the OC in me realized I can wear any lip color with black frames, while the red one will limit my choices of lip color (Silly I know, but I'm that OC with colors. Sorreh!).
I highly recommend you to get your pair (or pairs, if you know what I mean. Lol) from Four Eyes. They don't just have fabulous and high-quality eyewear, but they're also a company with a big heart.
They have this project called A Pair For A Pair. For every pair you buy from them, they will donate a pair to someone who needs it but can't afford one. So you're not just buying a pair for yourself, you're also helping out someone else! Now isn't that more than enough reason to get (or collect. Hihihi) Four Eyes eyewear?! :)
