[2020 Update: Eyedoo is no longer trading. I won’t be deleting this post because of SEO and the barrage of broken links it will cause.]
Be warned, you are going to ‘see’ a fair few visual related puns in this round-up of the Eyedoo pop-up launch. I headed on down to the pop-up in Marylebone station, managing to navigate myself through all the commuters and find some solace in the store.
I was actually in need of some new glasses as my prescription had changed (I contribute this to old age) and had yet to choose a new pair of specs. I have been buying my glasses online for the past few years but to be honest, the quality is terrible, they take ages to be delivered and they look cheap. You get what you pay for as they say.
Anyway, in essence, Eyedoo is an online provider of spectacles at a fixed price of £49 for single vision glasses and £75 for sunglasses. They have a huge range available and ordering them couldn’t be any simpler. The quality is fantastic and you can see for yourself by visiting the pop-up in person. Here are a few I tried on for good measure… can you guess which ones I ordered?
Best of all, for every purchase, 5% goes to Vision Care for Homeless People (VCHP). If that isn’t more reason to shop with Eyedoo, then what is?
But even if you’re not able to visit the pop-up this month, their website has an innovative tool that allows you to virtually try different styles on. we all know the pressure of having an eye test and being forced to have a look at glasses there and then. Sometimes you just want a second opinion and you may be on a budget so you can’t afford to spend hundreds on a pair of designer glasses. After all who is really looking at the logo emblazoned on the handle?
And again if you’re still not 100% not sure, Eyedoo will send you up to four different frames for you to try on in the comfort of your own home. Sometimes you just need to be sure especially as the lighting in stores is questionable!
If you’re not able to make it to the Marylebone Station pop-up (Open until March 30th 2017), you can take a look at the website here. Best of all, use code #eyedoo for 10% off your new specs purchase (Expires 30th April 2017). For Twitter updates, find them here.
