Yes, yes,yes, I have a new pair of eyeglasses! What can I say I have a problem and when Coastal.com contacted me for this collaboration, I was so on board. First thing I said was "Can I seriously pick out a pair of glasses that I really and truly like and would wear?" Their response was "We wouldn't have it any other way!" it was game on from that point. Let me first say that I am giving you the truth and nothing but the truth about their product.....(in my head I went to the best line of all times from the movie A Few Good Men. "You can't handle the truth!")
Now I will say my first on-line prescription glasses purchase was from coastal.com back in 2012-13 and my first pair was almost free but I went on to buy three more pairs from them. I loved all the glasses but the coating they used on the lenses sucked, it started peeling! They did replace the lenses in one pair. After that I went on to try some other on-line stores and I was quite happy with my other purchases. Needless to say I wasn't going to go back to Coastal.com because I had three pairs of glasses with lenses that were messed up.
So the main reason I was excited about this review was to see if their product had changed and to find out if I was going to become a paying customer again. First things first they re-vamped the website and added some pretty cool features designed to help you choose frames that will work for you.
I already knew they had awesome frames because like I said I had purchased glasses from them before but I was like a kid in a candy store this time around! Not only do they have NAME brands they have their own brands that are just as stylish. It took me more than a week to finally pick a pair. (I have about three pairs in line for future purchases.) I picked Designer Kam Dhillon's Mina Frames I decided I would get a grown-up pair of glasses and these gold frames just spoke to me. I love these glasses and I have been wearing them the last few months making sure I can provide a review on how the lenses are doing. They are fine, honestly I was a little rough on these babies just to see what would happen. They passed the test as did Coastal.com and they have won me back as a customer! My next pair is going to be these Derek Cardigan Frames.
