Spring is the time for new beginnings, and what better way to celebrate than get yourself a new pair of glasses so you can see the world as it were meant to be seen.  With a fresh new season upon us, our friends at have teamed up with us for a fun contest.

If you’re selected as our winner you will receive a pair of prescription glasses from or contact lenses for one month – FREE! Check out‘s virtual mirror, which allows you to try on hundreds of pairs of designer glasses virtually, if you need a little more inspiration:

For those of you who are unfamiliar, sells glasses and contacts at significantly lower prices than your local optician.  They have all the big brand names and will ship straight to your door.

A good friend of mine actually orders contacts from them all the time, and as a thank you for her loyalty, she received a pair of glasses for free!  Talk about great customer service and customer retention.  I’ve never heard of a company giving you something absolutely for free, just for continuing to shop there – especially when their prices make shopping there totally worth it!

    I’ve got a story for you. Well, it’s kind of embarrassing, but here goes nothing…

    To say my eyesight is weak is an understatement. I’m extremely nearsighted. Without glasses, I can’t read anything unless it’s right up to my nose. I can’t see details in pictures, or words on signs.

    Typically, when I wake up in the morning, I don’t put on my glasses until after I’ve washed my face. This means that the trek between my bedroom and bathroom is completed without glasses. That’s not a big deal considering it’s just a short walk, and I don’t have to do anything in between. Well, one morning, my adorable little dog decided to leave me a little, ahem, “present” in the bathroom, on the mat that sits on the tiles, in front of the sink. A dark coloured mat. You can probably guess what happened, but let me explain anyway. I woke up, staggered to the bathroom, and stepped right on top of his little present. If I had been wearing glasses, I probably could have avoided this. Needless to say, from that day forward, I definitely keep my glasses by the bed and put them on before I get up!

    Our northern town has a ‘gold rush’ themed festival every year with lots of action in the bars and taverns. When we got off work, my friend and I were to meet other friends at one of the very busy bars and then go on to dinner. We cleverly decided we would remove our eyeglasses for vanity’s sake. We walked through the upper level, didn’t see them, so we made our way down a set of stairs, arm-in-arm, and then stopped in the one place that was not jammed with people to search the crowd for our friends. Although we couldn’t see much, we could hear whistles and applause. Fortunately, one of our friends spotted us and dragged us over to their table. When we put on our glasses, we noticed the bare area of floor that we had stopped at was in fact, a “stage” and we were blocking the view of “Peaches” a stripper, doing her floor show. As we were then given the nicknames of “Peaches and Cream”, it took us a very long time to live that one down.

    One night while it was pouring rain, and my husband and I were asleep, I heard my cat meowing to come in. I went downstairs as fast as possible without my glasses ( it was pouring rain, and wanted to let him in quickly) I opened the door and let the cat in. I then went to the bathroom to get a towel to dry him off, and put on my glasses. I came back to where the cat was…and realized this was not my cat! The cat and I stared at each other confused, and I showed him out. a few minutes later my actual cat showed up, this time I was wearing my glasses.
