I'm sure it seems ridiculous, but I really don't like to miss out on things. Not as an eight year old and certainly not now.
|Sinclair in Greystone|
There's just too much beer to brew, friends to see, food to eat and trips to take - I'm just unwilling to miss those things so I can go see the eye doctor. So despite the countless layers of superglue on my glasses, I kept avoiding the eye doctor. I had a nice supply of my contacts and my vision was fine, so why bother, right? Enter Warby Parker.

I actually like most of their frames too, which was a nice plus. The few times we were out shopping and we'd stop into a glasses store, I'd try on ten or twenty frames and fine one, maybe two pairs of glasses that I tolerated.
My company switched insurance plans in January and by mid-February I had finally bothered to read up on my new vision coverage, which included a doctor that I had previously seen - one that offered weekend hours! I booked my appointment the same day and had a glasses prescription in just a few days. But which pair of Warby Parker's to get?
Hello Home Try-On Program!

Lets be clear, these are frames with blank lenses, so don't expect to get five pairs of prescription glasses, but who cares, leave your contacts in while you try them on like I did. The five day at home trial was great. I quickly picked out my favorites and was able to wear them them each for a whole day, judging the response from my coworkers and friends.

So, which frames did I pick? Well, I'm not telling yet, but I'll say this about each...
The Sinclair frames were my favorites online and I really wanted them to fit perfectly. In the end they were a tiny bit small on my face.
The Crosby were a tab bit big, but very comfortable to wear - I actually forgot that I was wearing them.
|Thatcher in Whiskey Tortoise|
The Beckett were my second favorite after Sinclair, but they two were a bit small.
The Thatcher were a nice balance between Beckett and Crosby and were also comfortable to wear.
@RooksJeff We're dying to know too!
