Firmoo is an online eyeglasses retailer that was founded in 2009. Similar to Eye Buy Direct and Glasses USA, they sell a variety of eye wear for pretty low prices! They frequently have sales and BOGO free deals too, so that’s pretty great. They ship to several countries such as Canada, UK, Germany, Brazil, Japan, and more! To see the list of the countries they ship to and how long it may take, see their FAQ.
I literally found them through my Instagram feed and the reason why I decided to check them out was because I saw a really neat and unique pair of glasses. Coincidentally, I was actually in need of getting a new pair … or two.
I was a little hesitant because I’ve never shopped for glasses online before and was afraid I’d order something that won’t actually compliment my face or end up fitting my head … I hate going through the hassle of returning things! I’m so relieved they have a pretty detailed dimensions section, although I know from past experience that not all dimensions specifications are always accurate …
Thankfully after receiving the two pairs I bought, I’m happy to say that they’re quite spot on!
So without further ado, here’s my review of the glasses I purchased from Firmoo!
Glasses #1: #S985X – $25.99 USD
Glasses dimensions: lens width: 53 mm, bridge distance: 17 mm, temple length: 140 mm
Colors / Styles available: clear/gold, purple/gold, black/gold, tortoise/gold
I chose black/gold for this style. After plugging in your prescription details, you’re given a few lens options:
- Tint – available in a variety of colors (5-7 days processing time)
- Photochromic (~$40 USD) & Transitions Photochromic (~$120 USD) – designed to darken outdoors and turn clear when indoors. As explained to me, the customer representative explained that the Transitions Photochromic lens darken more than the regular Photochromic ones. Another reason for the big difference in price is the brand name (8-11 days processing time)
- Polarized – reduces glare (8-11 days processing time)
- Blue-Light Blocking – great for people who are on their devices a lot! It filters out blue light from devices, thus reducing eye strain. (6-9 days processing time)
- Clear / None (2 days processing time)
For this pair of glasses, I chose to get the blue-light blocking option. Too bad you can’t add more than one option to them!
My parcel came sooner than I thought, which was a pleasant surprise. It arrived in a small bubble envelope, containing my glasses, the case, a little nifty pouch, a little screwdriver and extra nose pieces, and several cards containing Firmoo discount codes!
I fell in love with this pair. I just love how unique the frame is, looking somewhat cat-eye-like, but also polygonal. The touch of gold beautifully accents the black frames. Furthermore, it’s very light and it feels like I’m not even wearing glasses! Everything about it – from the style to the fitting, was just perfect.
As I mentioned previously, I ordered that these glasses have a blue-light blocking lens. These glasses do give off a very light, almost negligible yellow tint. Some blue-light blocking action was going on in the picture, as you can tell from the small reflection on my glasses.
I’ve worn them for about a week now, and I see absolutely nothing wrong with them. I give them an A+!
Glasses #2: #S947 – $25.99 USD
Glasses dimensions: lens width: 51 mm, bridge distance: 21 mm, temple length: 141 mm
Colors / Styles available: clear/gold, black/gold, pink
For this pair, I chose the Transitions Photochromic lens option. Although there is quite a big difference between the regular photochromic and this one, I decided to go for this, as I wanted the lens to get really dark when I’m outside.
This package arrived earlier as well, which is really awesome. It came in the same kind of packaging as the first one, and had the same stuff in it. The only difference were the frames, which were also super cute.
The glasses looked pretty much identical to the stock pictures you see online.
I’ve used these for a few days and only had a few days of sun to test them out. Despite being out for at least ten minutes, this was as dark as they got. This is my first time getting transition-type lens, so I thought I would notice that they got dark, like as if I switched to regular sunglasses. To my surprise, I found that everything still looked just as clear, only the outside was now darker. I honestly thought they would get darker, but I guess it’s not a big deal. It only makes me wonder how dark the $40 lens would’ve gotten!
Overall, I’d give these an A-. I think the frame is lovely and it’s great that these are photochromic so they block out UV rays. I was given several compliments on these within the few days of wearing it out!
I think these two pairs of glasses are really great and I love how unique they look. The frames themselves were quite cheap too! I felt that both of them were really lightweight yet sturdy, and these were glasses in which I could wear all day and not have a headache.
If you’re looking to get new glasses, I recommend Firmoo! (I will receive a small commission from each order placed by clicking that link to the left 🙈)
