My vision is terrible. It’s been years since my eye doctor pronounced me legally blind without my glasses and since then the situation has only worsened. On the daily I morph into an old woman, squinting at things and muttering. My friends are constantly harassing me for my new tagline “I can’t see a blessed thing.”
I tried the contacts route but it didn’t work for me, so I’m always on the prowl for stylish glasses. Enter Trioo, an online eyewear company with a focus on quality and style.
The process was easy, I chose my frames and entered my prescription information online. They ask for some measurements to make sure the frames are sized properly. The styles are all very sleek and affordable, ranging from about $67-$97. I chose the Beverly for the subtle cat eye and neutral-but-sassy color options.
My glasses arrived just a few days later (nice fast shipping time despite the company’s base in China). Shipping is also free with any pair. My biggest concern was that the frames would be too big for my face. As a petite lady, it’s difficult to find glasses that don’t make me look like a deranged bat. These regular-sized frames ended up being a cute oversized style on me just like I was hoping. Another bonus – the frames are super lightweight.
One of Trioo’s big marketing pushes is that their glasses are super durable. As someone who wears her glasses into the ground I can attest to this. I somehow managed to drop these babes three times in my first day wearing them and encountered no problems. The frames also came with a tiny screwdriver so I can make small adjustments right here at home.
From a style perspective I’ve found their frames to be very modern. These have a hint of retro but remain current. The glasses are designed in Paris and then manufactured in Shanghai to keep the price down and the style up. I’d recommend Trioo to anyone looking for affordable, chic glasses without the trip to the eye doctor.
