Goggles 4 U Review

good

Experts tout the customer service and quick problem resolution with Goggles 4 U and an unusual re-lensing option (new lenses for old frames), although reports of poorly crafted lenses occasionally surface in consumer reviews. Repeat purchasers qualify for discounts.

Experts at Eyeglass Retailer Reviews and the Glassy Eyes blog are impressed with this online eyewear store's responsive customer service, according to their Goggles 4 U reviews. The retailer also offers good discounts and a plentiful supply of online coupons, the reviews continue, and patrons are positive overall about their experiences. Recent Goggles 4 U reviews at Reseller Ratings give this discount eyewear provider 7.9 out of 10 possible stars. Quite a few customers who posted on this site are repeat buyers or order several pairs at once. The draw? Low prices, comfortable fit, stylish looks, and helpful customer service; one review reports that missing screws and replacement for a lost nose pad were quickly sent out. However, we also read reviews carping about slow delivery and order processing, and quality problems such as a low base curvature (in the lens) that's too flat for some consumers and rimless glasses with excessively long or ill-fitting screws.

Based in the U.S., Goggles 4 U is accredited by the Better Business Bureau and ships out of Pakistan. This website offers a wide range of eyewear styles but carries only a few of each model. Prices include anti-reflective, anti-scratch, and UV coatings and free worldwide shipping. Experts and users consider the company's customer service to be tip-top, but instances of poorly crafted lenses seem slightly higher than with other vendors. Goggles 4 U (starting at $7) offers repeat customers discounts off future purchases and seems to resolve issues quickly. Goggles 4 U will also make new lenses for frames you already own.

When we initially researched Goggles 4 U in 2011, prices started at $30, which fell in the middle of the cheap eyeglasses frames range. Extras like free worldwide shipping and free anti-reflective, anti-scratch, and UV coatings were included in the cost of the frames. Recently, Goggles 4 U dropped prices to match the competition, with hundreds of pairs commanding less than $7 apiece. This new, lower price point still includes single-vision lenses, anti-scratch and UV coatings; an anti-reflective coating now costs $4.95, U.S. shipping runs $4.95, and international shipping is an additional $9.95.

These extras add up, but the base price is low and most customers seem satisfied. If you find frames that appeal, this online eyewear retailer is worth a try.
