I recently bought new frames (I got these with the blue arms) but I was a little overwhelmed at the price of the glasses in pretty much every shop I visited. I was talking to a friend about this when she said she went to a warehouse and tried on frames through an online company called BonLook.
BonLook is an online retailer which sells frames for just $129 but lucky Montrealers can also visit their showroom which is handily located in St-Henri to try on frames. (There’s also a kiosk in Brossard)
I have the tiniest face so was curious as to what they would come up with for me through their ‘Perfect Fit‘ questionnaire. I was given four suggestions based on my preferences which I could then virtually try on alone in private in the comfort of my own home.
The only catch for me is that my prescription is so strong that they are actually unable to fill it. I’d have to see if an optician around here were willing to fill the frames with lenses. But, for your average joe (i.e. someone who isn’t semi-blind) I think this is such a great, much more affordable option.
They also offer sunglasses which are only $99!
