FOUR EYES. I recall that used to be one nickname I had growing up. I’ve been wearing eyeglasses since I was 10, so glasses have been a huge part of my life. Buying eyeglasses can get tedious, but I’ve found myself a solution to making the process more comfortable — Four Eyes! Four Eyes is an online optical store. One thing I love about Four Eyes is you can buy prescription eyewear without having to leave your home, and the prices are reasonable! So when Four Eyes reached out for me to try their service, I totally went for it. Yey! And yep, the store resonated with me because of their brand name. Ah, childhood memories. Here’s what I loved about my Four Eyes experience:
What I love about Four Eyes #1: Virtual Try-on Feature.
When you browse through the various eyeglasses frames, there is an option where you can virtually try on the styles. Simply upload a picture of yourself and then adjust how the frames look on you. Here’s how it worked with mine:
I virtually tried on Vanilla Water, Sing Me A Lullaby and Break the Rule
I tried on a LOT of styles. It was a pretty cool tool! After settling on the top 3 that I wanted, I then proceeded to Home Try-On, another feature which I love about Four Eyes.
What I love about Four Eyes #2: Home Try-on Feature.
You can choose up to 3 frames for this. These frames will then be delivered to your home at no cost. See how convenient it is? The frames come in a blue box, which each frame cushioned in bubble wrap. You can then try each pair and see what suits you best.
There’s one sticker included labeled “I want!”. You stick it on the lens of the frames that you choose. Slide in your eyeglasses prescription inside the box. (See TIP on prescription below.) The box comes with an envelope that you can send the frames back in, and this package will be picked up by Four Eyes’ courier. Just give them a call when you’re ready. The sooner you do this the better, so you can get your glasses delivered sooner too.
I chose Vanilla Wafer. I loved the tortoise color and the white sides.
Instructions for Home Pick-Up once you’ve chosen your frames.
I got my eyeglasses in just a few weeks. It normally takes a much shorter amount of time, but my eyeglasses required special lenses (really thin ones, because my grade is SUPER HIGH). I didn’t mind the wait. Here’s how Vanilla Wafer looks on me!
I’ve got four eyes with Vanilla Wafer.
What I love about Four Eyes #3: Their “Pair for a Pair” advocacy.
For every pair of eyeglasses that you buy from http://www.foureyes.com.ph, Four Eyes donates a pair to someone in need. They do this in partnership with World Vision Philippines. So buying a pair of eyeglasses from Four Eyes means being part of their movement in giving the gift of better eyesight to more than 10,000,000 people around the country. It’s good for the eyes and good for the soul.
PRESCRIPTION TIP: If you need prescription glasses, reading glasses or computer glasses, it’s best that you know what your eyeglasses prescription is, e.g. sphere (L/R), pupillary distance, etc. You can get a prescription when you have your eyes refracted.
Four Eyes sells optical frames and sunglasses for men and women. There are lots of different styles and they have great promos! Go visit their website and catch them. Check out their latest Fall collection too! I enjoyed my Four Eyes experience I’ll definitely be trying out their service again. Maybe for sunglasses next!

Thanks for featuring this helpful service, Toni. I think I have a case of presbyopia now (I am still coming to terms with the fact that presbyopia comes from the same word as presbytery which means elderly, lol). This is so timely as I am thinking of finally visiting my ophthalmologist soon to have my eyes checked and graded — in which case I can then try this online optical store.

This might just help my dad who has been bedridden for a long time. I’ll go ask them now. Thank you Toni. Hope you’re having a great week!

Ohh, I need to try the four eyes. I usually ordered eyeglass at http://www.eo-executiveoptical.com. Thanks for sharing this, I will have a new store to order sunglasses this summer.
