I need to have three major components in my life that keep me afloat. These three are sleep, food and my eyeglasses. I have mentioned before that I have been wearing eyeglasses every since I was about 5 years old due to stigmatism and what not. So you can just imagine how many specs I have ruined, grew out of and just fell out of love with in the past 18 years(long time).
When OTTICA first reached out to me and offered a generous deal. I was ecstatic! I am still not used to people giving me free things(I don’t think I ever will). OTTICA is an online eyewear company that caters to literally every need an eyeglass wearer needs, from A to Z. But i’ll get to that in a bit.
They carry household brands that are loved by many like Ray Ban, Tory Burch, Michael Kors, Versace, to name a few. When ordering a pair, you can get them with no prescription, distance (single vision), reading (single vision), progressives (smooth transitions for all distances; I have this for my everyday eyewear) and bifocals (reading and distance). See I told you they do everything. But wait, there is more.
So when it came to what I wanted to get, I was thinking of getting a pair of specs but wasn’t too sure. I wanted something classic, a piece that will grow old with me(don’t want to grow old though), versatile, not too dressy and of course, the basic biatch I am, I wanted it to be casual. So after much thought and convincing, I decided to get a pair of Ray Ban Clubmasters in Tortoise. Here are the rest of the Ray Bans that they carry, link here!
When you order from OTTICA, they give you options for your decided thickness of your lenses. They have three options. They come in thin air (+2.00–2.00), advanced thin (25% lighter than normal lenses) and ultra thin (35% lighter than normal lenses).
At OTTICA, when you order a pair of sunglasses, you can upgrade your lenses to tinted shades (they come in Gray, Brown and Green; comes with purchase), polarized lenses (reduces glare) and Mirrored (comes in 5 shades; Red, Blue, Gold, Green and Silver).
When I placed my order, I was told that my package will come in 10-14 business days, which is about 3 weeks. I didn’t really mind since I knew that it was coming from overseas. I then got a text from a courier that it was arriving on June 6. I even prepared the 5% tax they usually ask for upon international delivery. But I guess that the tax fee came with the delivery charge, which was $25USD.
To my surprise, it arrived on a Thursday, not even a week since I ordered it. Now that’s service!
Did I mention that every purchase comes with a 365 day warranty or your money back! With free shipping and returns! OTTICA literally does all the stops!
