This four-eyed girl loves Four Eyes! (Part 2)


Remember when I tried out the eyewear online shopping site, Four Eyes, last week? Well, my glasses are finally here!

I picked the Cat Whisperer frames because I looked really good in them! Or they looked really good on me.

After trying out the three frames I picked, I asked for the glasses to be picked up on June 13. They were picked up by courier service Xend on June 17. Again, there's a wait. I finally got my glasses on June 24. So from the time I ordered on June 2 to the time I got my glasses on June 24, it's 22 days. Three weeks. That could've been shorter since I really kept the trial frames for 5 days before I scheduled a pick up.

To be fair to Four Eyes, they never said they'll deliver or pick up the next day. So the process does take time, but if you're in no hurry, I think Four Eyes is much better than going to the optical shop. A big reason why I dislike optical shops intensely is the fact that they hide price tags. So you go around the shop, you pick your frames, you try them on. The sales person says, "Bagay! Bagay lahat!!!" Which really doesn't help. Finally, you pick your frame and then realize it's out of your budget range and then the salesperson looks at you with a sigh, and then you feel small and sad and poor, and then you just hurry out or pick something else that you don't like. Haha, I'm so melodramatic! But I think you know what I mean!

With Four Eyes, I had the convenience of picking out frames at my leisure (it took me an entire afternoon doing the virtual try-out, then a whole five days trying them on at home), and all of that in the privacy of my own home. Then my new gorgeous glasses just cost P3,495! I mean, look at them. They look so chic, not cheap!

Here's another reason why you should totally buy your glasses and sunnies from Four Eyes: The eyewear shopping site has partnered with the charity organization, World Vision Philippines. For every pair you buy from Four Eyes, they will donate another pair to someone in need of prescription glasses.

As someone who needs glasses, I know how vital it is to have clear eyesight. When I was in 3rd grade, my grades started to slip. We couldn't figure out why I seemed to be failing some classes. It was only when a classmate in 7th grade said, "You're actually smart. Maybe you should have your eyes checked," that we went to an optometrist and realized I had been near-sighted all that time! Now that I'm a mom, my eyesight is just as important. I'm always on the lookout for nasty bugs that might bite my babies' tender skin, for example. A huge part of who I am and what I turned out to be relies on my vision. Imagine if we can give that simple but profound opportunity to our less fortunate brothers and sisters! 

Last month, Four Eyes and World Vision visited an underprivileged community in Cavite, where they checked the eyesight of more than 250 adults and kids. Then Four Eyes made eyeglasses for these lovely people. Last weekend, Four Eyes went back to Cavite to distribute the free eyeglasses to the community. I wanted to go, too, actually, since Four Eyes invited me but since my pregnant tummy is about to pop any day now, I regretfully stayed in Manila and missed the event. Jeremy Callegher, business development manager of Four Eyes, said, "All [glasses] were distributed, the event was a success and you can tell so, thanks to the smile of the people from the community."

Buy yourself glasses for just P1,495 and another person benefits from your shopping!

New glasses for all! What a happy day!

  1. Hi Frances. I wanted to join but I don't have glasses. I used to wear contacts and the last time I used them was last year. Yesterday, our office had free eye check up and I found out my grade is now 175/150 (Used to be 125). I checked out the Four Eyes site (and liked their FB as well) since you wrote about it before. I wanted to try them virtually but can't seem to find the app. Now, you have a contest, I can't join because the pre-req is wearing glasses. I hope to join though, I badly need glasses. Thank you so much! (Hope I could join in time for my birthday on 10th of July) :)

    1. You go to the glasses you want. On the left side of the screen, there's a box that says Virtual Try-On. Click on that. You'll be asked to upload your photo. Then you just try on the glasses virtually.

      If you can't join the contest, just buy a pair! Right now, there's 15% discount pa. Not only do you get really nice and affordable glasses, you also help someone less fortunate with your purchase! =)

  2. Yay! joined. :)

    I've been planning to get a new specs pero laging out of budget, masyado kasing expensive. Good to know Four Eyes offers affordable prices. But am still hoping to win this give away. *cross.fingers,legs pati na toes* hahaha :))

  4. Hi Ms. Frances! I uploaded my entry already and shared your site to my friends to check reviews for foureyes para dun na lang sila bumili ng eyeglasses and to join na din sa promo, kasi di lang business but they supports World Vision pa so natutulungan yung di makaafford bumili ng eyeglasses especially yung mga bata nakakaamaze naman, kaya nirerecommend ko talaga sa kanila na dun nalang bumili :) btw ingat po kayu lagi and I am praying for your safe delivery , Goodluck and Godbless and Congrats nadin :)
