Living in Singapore is pretty convenient considering the easy access to so many consumer choices via public transport. Living in larger countries can be a different story, and I’ve heard a few netizens discuss the merits of purchasing their prescription eyewear online, never having to do that myself since, well, Singapore is a small city state; there were three shops selling glasses in the neighbourhood mall just a ten-minute walk from my previous home. I’ve had my previous pair of glasses for the past two years now, so my vision had been suffering for the past year and change thanks to my fluctuating astigmatism (thanks a lot, traitorous eyeballs). It was hence pretty serendipitous when online spectacles store Firmoo reached out for a review just when I was waffling over making new ones!
All I needed was a recent prescription, a measuring tape, and some faith placed in my measurements. Thank you Firmoo for my clear vision! If you’re taking the leap to buying your prescription glasses online (shortsighted, farsighted, bifocal, progressive, non-rx; they have it all), you might be interested in Firmoo’s ever-expanding daily new selection of frames as well as a 15% coupon for new customers.
