Geek Chic: Eyewear Made Easy by BonLook.com
Dec 07, 2011 - by Samantha Lim
Want to perfect your hipster/naughty librarian look with a pair of thick framed glasses but hate going to the eye doctor? BonLook is here to solve your needs. The insanely affordable eyewear site has incredibly flattering frames, a really cool "pupil reader" app, and an effortless checkout process that makes buying your next pair of glasses a breeze. Find out how we picked out our favorite new pair after the jump.
We first got on the site and chose between prescription glasses and sunglasses. Being a bit skeptical about ordering prescription ready glasses off a website with no consultation seemed a bit fishy...so of course we went for that option.
We picked out the most hipster looking pair and proceeded to the BonLook Virtual Try On application. The app allows your computer's camera to take a snap of your face (or you can upload a photo) and actually places their glasses on you! It shows how they fit and then pin points the exact measurements of your pupils so the prescription lenses are perfectly placed. Their direct to manufacturer relationship gets you uber high quality frames at killer prices (we're talking some at under $100!), so we got these at an absolute steal. A couple clicks later and this pair of stunners showed up at our door. You're welcome kids, buying eyewear just got easier.
