Eyes Up

*This post was sponsored by Zenni.

Two years ago, I started getting pounding headaches every week. I had no idea what was causing them until I went to the eye doctor for an exam. I found out that while my vision is healthy, my eyes often have trouble focusing which causes constant strain throughout the day. It was time to get my first prescription which, to be honest, wasn’t something I was super excited about. Then I started looking at all the different types of glasses, and my annoyance for needing them turned into excitement because I realized that this opens up a whole new world of stylish possibilities!


I like to switch up the style of my glasses depending on what I am wearing, but I don’t like to spend a ton of money on them. I am known to misplace my glasses, sit on them, stretch them, or somehow break them, so it’s important for me to find companies that create stylish glasses at an affordable price. You know I don’t work with companies I don’t support. That’s why I’m psyched about Zenni. It provides high-quality prescription glasses (and sunglasses) for both men and women. They have one of the largest selections online of glasses that I have ever seen, with hundreds of styles to choose from. You can even upload your photo and virtually try on glasses to see how well they fit your face!


I was shocked to see the price points. The glasses range anywhere between $10 to $45 with the option to add on special features. I chose a circular tortoise shell frame and added on the UV blue blockers which prevents eye strain when you’re looking at your computer and phone screens all day. I also added the anti-reflection coating, along with the oil and fingerprint resistant coatings. For free, the glasses came with an anti-scratch coating and UV protection. It’s so cool that when you check out online, you have several different options like these to add to your glasses. Even with all of these features, the glasses were still less than $50, and when I received them, I was so impressed with the quality. They’ve quickly become my go-to pair.


My days are busy from the minute I wake up to the minute I fall asleep, so I truly value companies like Zenni that let you shop from the comfort of your couch. I’ve gotten so many compliments on these glasses, and I feel confident wearing them because the quality is great. I also love that because the price point is so affordable, I can stock up and have different pairs to go with different looks. Anything that justifies more shopping when it comes to creating more stylish looks, I am more than okay with. 😉
