Most days you’ll see me sporting contacts lenses, but on the odd occasion you can catch me rocking some funky specs. Recently I was approached by EyeBuyDirect.com to check out their collections and try out a pair for myself.

Listen, I’m not easily pleased and will wear you out with a flood of questions about everything you’re trying to sell. It’s not my mission to break you down, but you may leave rethinking why you got into your industry. So, simply put, EyeBuyDirect.com had a lot of impressing to do.

Price is a huge player, but the blue filter protection is a must on all my glasses; a protectant that shields your eyes from harmful blue-violet light emitted by digital screens. EyeBuyDirect.com works with two brands Eyezen and EBD BLUE, but since adding Eyezen to all my lenses a few years ago it seemed best to continue with them.

Style and well-executed design were the second key players. So many of these online retailers release items that are only trendy now, making whatever they are selling boring. Others offer a multitude of styles but in poor quality. With EyeBuyDirect.com controlling the entire process from concept, design, to manufacturing, they are able to keep cost low, offer high-quality productions, and still play around with frame designs. Especially with their in-house brand, RFLKT. And no, you don’t need a script to order. Glasses are available in prescription and non-prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses.

From purchasing to receipt, I received my pair in less than two weeks. If I wasn’t happy with them, which I was, Eye Buy Direct has a 14-Day Fit & Style guarantee allowing customers to make an equal exchange or return with no questions asked. As an additive, they have a 365-Day Product Guarantee where customers are eligible for a one-time replacement pair within 12 months (based on clear defects in material and/or workmanship).

I don’t have a discount code, but use the specialty link here and receive $10 off your first order. $10 may not seem like much to the untrained eye, but when you can get a pair for as little as $6…well, you do the math!
