I was extremely lucky to be able to review a pair of prescription glasses from Just Eyewear. The pair I had been using were the same pair I had gotten when I first found out I needed glasses in 8th grade! Yes, that's right I was still trying to use a pair of six year old glasses, and they were not in the best of shape after my wonderful two year old had gotten her hands on them. One of my lenses kept falling out, both of the lenses were extra scratched, and my frames were twisted to the point of just about falling apart. If you had seen me with my glasses before you would understand, you would also be one of the very few as I couldn't stand the glasses I had. They were not only only and falling apart, but I hated the way they looked on me, they didn't fit right and were not my style at all! But, as many people who wear glasses, or buy them for their children, know glasses are expensive and sometimes you have to deal with the ones you can afford.
Just Eyewear is an online place where you can order glasses and sunglasses, both prescription and not for a very reasonable price. For a basic pair of prescription glasses you will spend as little as $19! You also have the options to upgrade your glasses for an additional fee.
I had never ordered glasses online before and I'll admit, I was concerned about how difficult it might be to find the right pair of frames, lenses and any of the extra's. I was worried I'd order incorrectly and get the wrong size or not like them some how without being able to actually see them before I buy them. However, Just Eyewear sets up the ordering process into a few easy steps.

I was able to order my glasses in less than five minute and they were sent to me with in the week! I ordered them on a Sunday night, was sent an email confirmation that they had gone to production Monday afternoon. I received my glasses the following Thursday afternoon. I was very impressed with the shipping time and even more impressed with the glasses themselves. I had ordered one of the cheapest frames, Love L736 Purple, but with the Transition lenses and the extra Anti-reflective coating, I needed a pair I could wear all the time including driving during the day and night. The transitions are perfect for that and with the extra anti-reflective coating night driving is a easier as well. The quality of these lenses and frames out did my expectations of an online site.

I would very much recommend Just Eyewear, it was quick and easy to use as well as very quick shipping. The site it very informative and has "help" buttons throughout the site if you ever need extra info. The only thing I recommend is that you have your prescription and all your own measurements ready when ordering so that you know exactly what will work for you.
