Coastal Contacts is giving away 10,000 free pairs of glasses to people across the USA on Thursday April 7.
Their vision is to make eyeglasses affordable for everyone and in turn change the way that Americans buy eyeglasses. Their online model allows us to pass on savings to our customers and we sell thousands of different styles of eyeglasses at prices up to 70% lower than those on sale at traditional brick and mortar eyeglasses retail stores.
Here’s what a reader, Michelle said:
You end up paying shipping which for me was $15.00. You then pay for any upgrades you want on your glasses. I got scratch resistant lenses and antiglare. My total was 32.00 for $300.00 glasses! Not bad at all in my book.
I do know if you have an extremely strong script you have to pay for thinner lenses. My script is -2.75 and they suggested I upgrade lenses, I didn’t and it was fine. I also saw some people not putting scripts in the frames just getting tinted lenses so ended up getting nice sunglasses.
Only negative I found is that the site gets overwhelmed.
