You can save a boatload of money by buying eyeglasses online, but it's a bit of a gamble because you can't actually try them on. That is, until now. Previously mentioned Warby Parker will now ship you five pairs to try for five days, no obligation to buy.
Select any 5 pairs of glasses that you'd like to try and the company will send them to you for free. (For those wondering, the program is available for contiguous US residents only.) You can try them on in the comfort of your home and ask your friends and family for their opinions or get feedback from Warby Parker experts on Facebook over the next five days.
Send the glasses back (return shipping is free), and if you like any of them, order the frame(s) with your prescription. Glasses cost $95 including prescription lenses.
As an added feel good bonus, for every pair Warby Parker sells, the company donates a pair of glasses to a person in need.
