Everyone in my immediate family wears eyeglasses except my younger brother. I began wearing them when I was just 10 years old. Annual eye doctor visits are expensive enough, then add on the cost of getting new glasses at least every other year and it really can hurt your budget.

I was really excited to share a review of Coastal.com because of my own personal experience with them. I found Coastal.com about three years through Facebook. They had some great promotions going at the time and I needed a spare pair of glasses so I decided to check them out. 

I was surprised at the variety of frames and options they offered.  What I loved most was that they offer over 300 frames you can get for free with your first time ordering (with a special coupon code).  You do have to pay for the lenses and any upgrades like bifocals, Transitions or thinner lenses. The price still is unbeatable.

The last pair of glasses I ordered through my local eye center was over $350.  I purchased a pair from  Coastal.com and  spent only about $40 for my first pair with the upgrades.  The funny thing is the pair I bought as a spare or backup pair, I ended up loving much more than the $350 ones I got from the eye center. Those are the ones I wear every single day.  Several of my family members have also purchased their glasses from Coastal.com.

Below  are just a few samples of the types of frames you can buy. They also offer prescription sunglasses and  contact lenses.

You might be thinking that it would be hard to choose a pair of glasses without trying them on. Coastal.com offers a virtual try on for registered members. You can enter in your facial dimensions and narrow down by color, shape, style and brand.  You can use one of their images or upload a picture of yourself, then choose which frames to "try on" so you can see how they look on your face. Isn't that neat?

Coastal.com also does not outsource their frames. They have their own lab and ship from Washington. Shipping is free and fast.  Plus they have a 366 day guarantee so if you don't like your frames or something happens, it is covered under their warranty for 366 days.

You can  check out their great selection and get your first pair free at Coastal.com. Be sure to give them a like on their Facebook page too!

  • This looks like a great place for my new glasses in a couple of months. I use glasses and last time I got new ones it was a challenge to get them as I only have one day a week where I don’t have a toddler with me, so searching for frames, getting measured and then waiting 2 hours for them to be ready is not for me. This would make it much more easier! and their frames are pretty cute! I was looking at Coastal’s website and found a few options for next time I need to replace mine.
