My new specs!

Sunday, June 10, 2012 Sidrah!!!! 2 Comments

I rarely switch out my glasses, my last pair lasted me a good 3 years. My eye sight has gotten to the point where it doesn't fluctuate anymore. So I visited a glasses shop to get a new pair because my boss recommended to check it out. I've had numerous bad experiences in the past when I’ve been over charged and promised something that I didn't get. I have a very high number lens, with my weak eyes I have to purchase a compressed lens which costs about 6-7k for only 2 lenses! If you have a weak eye sight you probably know how it feels to spend so much on glasses. 

I visited Outlook Eyewear a few times before actually making a purchase. I wanted to make sure that I'm getting my moneys worth. So I picked out a pair of rectangular frames in a dark maroon shade. The owner Ovais was very helpful in guiding me with various frames, which I must say customer service was a delight at this place. 

They took only 2 days to get my frames ready which was great, the first lens that I received wasn't what I initially thought I was getting. My previous lens were made out of glass so that it's the most compressed version. Both of my eyes are around -5 and -6 so with plastic frames I received they were almost 4x the thickness of my previous one. A huge disappointment when I saw them. Fortunately Ovais was super helpful and offered to replace it with glass lens at no additional charge, it took longer than expected to get what I wanted in the first place.

Now I'm super happy with my glasses. The store is great if your looking to get prescription glasses within a few days since they have all of their lens in stock. 

Check out some of their frames!
