[Review] Goggles4U – 5# Request – Eyeglasses Lens 1.67 Super thin and sunglasses with Degree

In this article I talk about my fifth request in Goggles4U, the store that sells glasses straight from the outside with great prices. These were the two items I ordered:

  • Prescription glasses with lens 1.67 Super Thin (G4u Y3229 Rectangle 124477-c Eyeglasses)
  • Sunglasses with Degree, Black Dark Lens (G4u T3022 Rectangle Eyeglasses 124765-c)

Total cost of only $ 79,41 (R$ 283,44), including freight, What is much less than I would pay for eyeglasses similar in any optics in Brazil. I used a coupon 30% off, but currently there is a coupon 50% off (!!!), that is Dn50.

Motivation

Something that I've learned about eyewear with acrylic lenses is that lenses inevitably will be yellow after a few years. And that goes for any brand of lens, including the most famous and expensive. Then buy a new glasses after few years ends up being inevitable, still keep the same revenue.

I was with my glasses Goggles4U acquired in 2016, and I thought it was time to buy new glasses. My last prescription was 2012. So I made so consultation with an ophthalmologist to see if my eyes had changed in those 6 years.

Choice of glasses on Goggles4U

With the new prescription on hand, It was time to choose the frames and lenses in Goggles4U. In this section I will talk in more detail about each of the two pairs of glasses I picked.

Eyeglasses with transparent Lens 1.67

For the main goggles, This time I opted not to make photochromic lenses. Instead I chose to invest in a high index lens (1.67), to let the thinner lenses and fully transparent. Not that I don't like photochromic lenses. They are good to use during the day, in open places. But the impression is that they are never 100% transparent, even indoors. High index lenses 1.67 comes with anti-glare, UV filter, and anti-scratch.

To the frame of the main goggles, I chose the G4u Y3229 Rectangle 124477-c Eyeglasses, that is lightweight and unobtrusive, nylon yarn (halfrim). I know they are out of fashion and that end up highlighting thick lenses for not having the sleeve around. But is the model that I like. Also this time I opted for a Setup with larger lenses, increasing the field of view. This is another reason why I chose the high-index lenses (1.67) because, in the case of myopia, the larger the lens, thicker is the edge.

Here are the characteristics of the frame:

SKU: 124477-c
Frame Width: 150 mm
Eye Height: 34 mm
Eye Width: 55 mm
Nose Bridge: 17 mm
Temple Size: 140 mm
Size: X-Large (> 140 mm)
Available Lens Type: Distance, Reading, Bifocal, Progressive
Frame Shape: Rectangle
Material: Metal

There were two color options: black and gray. Opted for the gray. Both colors are still available. It costs $ 19,95 and the lens 1.67 super thin come out for $ 47,95. Total of $ 67,90, that was for $ 47,53 with the coupon 30% off.

Sunglasses with Degree with lens 1.57 CR39

To the frame of the sunglasses I opted for a setup of TR-100, a G4u T3022 Rectangle Eyeglasses 124765-c. Unfortunately she is not available and disappeared from the site, so I couldn't get other information at the time of writing the article. There were some color options and opted for bright black, I found more compatible with a sunglasses. In this case it is a frame with complete edges (fullrim).

I chose the black lenses on dark intensity. The colored lenses of the shop are all 1.57 CR39. I opted for the version with anti reflection, anti-scratch and UV filter.

The sunglasses left for only $ 29,85, being $ 19,95 by frame, US$ 4,95 through the lens 1.57 CR39 black, e US$ 4,95 anti reflection protectors, anti-scratch and UV filter. With the discount 30% was $ 20,89.

Purchase

The purchase was made in 19/04/2018 and on day 11/05/2018 the glasses arrived, in two separate packages, which is perhaps a strategy of Goggles4U to avoid taxation. We just 15 calendar days from sending to the arrival, including the passage by the United States, What is pretty quick considering how bad the post office usually. The freight cost only $ 11,95. Is pretty cheap for a USPS First Class, It costs more than that in most other stores. It's still cheap considering it was two separate packages.

Tracing

I don't know exactly where the glasses were manufactured. May still be in Pakistan, maybe not. But the fact is that they continue to be sent first to the U.S., and there are shipped to Brazil by USPS First Class.

Tests of Glasses

The glasses arrived on a Friday. I ended up doing what is not recommended and started using them soon on Saturday, before taking them to the eye doctor's Office to be conferred. Everything seemed normal at home, using the PC, watching TV and doing household chores. But when I went out for a walk with my dog I knew I was with some difficulty to read license plates. Very little, but noticeable. The problem seemed to be more in the right eye. I thought to myself: or typed the wrong prescription for the Goggles4U, or they were wrong by following a recipe or is the recipe is that I was wrong. I checked the website and I had typed the recipe straight arrow, no errors.

I started then to remember as the appointment with the eye doctor. I don't have much faith in this way glasses are prescribed. Those “Is better this or this?” Sometimes they leave me in doubt and I get the impression that if you repeat the test several times, I have several different results.

In the query, as always occurs, spent first by auto refractor with the Secretary, then I went to the query where the optician made me visual acuity testing using the old glasses. I couldn't see the minor characters and he said that my glasses were bad. Referred me back to the desktop, where she dripped the drops to dilator pupil to proceed.

After about half an hour, with the pupils already dilated and only able to see up close without the glasses, I went back to the test with the refractor. In a few moments I was having second thoughts among the options that he gave me and said both were bad. But he repeated some times the options until I indicate the best. No final, with both eyes apart couldn't see perfectly the smaller fonts.

But, I know the astigmatism is not deleted 100% with the use of lenses, so I was expecting not to get a perfect view. At the end of the exam the ophthalmologist told me to look with both eyes through the refractor and then compare with my glasses. And really the refractor was much better, so I convinced myself that if I didn't have a perfect vision, at least I'd have a much better than with the previous glasses, that turned out not to be what happened.

Then he made the whole retinal mapping, as it does in all queries. In the end I asked him to check the distance between the pupils, but he said it was better to do it with optical pupilômetro, because his manual measurement is less need.

I compared the two recipes, A 2012 e A 2018 and really the difference was considerable. The recipe for 2012 was so:

Spherical Cylindrical Axis
Constant Use Right Eye -4,00 -0,75 150º
Left Eye -4,00 -1,00 180º

And the income of 2018 was so:

Spherical Cylindrical Axis
Constant Use Right Eye -3,25 -0,75 140º
Left Eye -3,25 -1,25 175º

But there wasn't much to do but wait until Monday to see the glasses. I went back to using my previous glasses that weekend. On Monday I took both pairs of glasses to check. And both were correct. A Goggles4U hit! I concluded that the error had been to the eye doctor. Not say anything with his Secretary because it was determined to see other professional and get another prescription for compare. I was in the same professional since I was a teenager, and there was nothing to complain about, but with this recipe wrong I thought it was time to consult with each other and compare the recipes and procedures.

The New Query

In consultation with the new ophthalmologist, the attendance of the Secretaries was pretty bad, but I liked the first procedure. When passing through the auto refractor, the Secretary gave in my hand the printed report by machine so I even delivered to the eye doctor when he called me. It gave me time to analyze it and shooting it. I like to have access to this type of information, something that didn't happen in the other Office.

Report of the Auto Refractor, the second ophthalmologist.

Report of the Auto Refractor, the second ophthalmologist.

The report of the auto refractor was much more like my recipe of 2012 than with 2018, What ever gave me an indication that my prescription 2018 I was really wrong. Another advantage of having the report of the auto refractor in hands he gave me the PD of 71 mm, similar to the last in local optical glasses. This measure needs to be passed to the Goggles4U do your glasses. If the ophthalmologist doesn't make, you need to measure at home with methods that can be less accurate.

To start the query with the “new” ophthalmologist, He was already aware that I had consulted another Pro about a month ago, as this was asked in pre-interview with the Secretary. He told me not to say anything about the other query and that he wouldn't ask anything, because it is more ethical and thus he would consult me normally. And so was. Until I chose so to have no bias in prescribing him.

When passing through the refractor, I get some differences. First, This eye doctor does not use eye drops for pupil dilator prescribe glasses. Furthermore, He asks to ignore the small fonts, said “There is no source of this size”. So, on occasion I said that I could see with both options that he gave me. In this case, he said to look at the edges of the letters, and see which was the sharpest. I realized he wasn't going to beyond the sources indicate a visual acuity 20/20.

At the end of the test the following prescription, that was the same indicated by auto refractor, except for rounding on track:

Spherical Cylindrical Axis
Constant Use Right Eye -4,00 -0,50 150º
Left Eye -3,50 -1,00 180º

This prescription also has enough resemblance to my prescription 2012. And so things make more sense.

At the end of the query opened the game with the ophthalmologist, without citing the name of the previous, After all both are doctors, Faculty of the same University, most likely if you know. I asked the question of eye drops to dilator pupils. He replied that he no longer uses, even with children. He said he is a former, that is not wrong, but currently not the most recommended. The mapping of retina he also only do recommendation (diabetics, for example). There I am in doubt: I don't know if the other always professional by overzealous or to gain more health plan.

I can't tell because the requirements were so different, But if I had to bet on something, bet on drops to dilator pupils, or in this matter to focus on better defining the edges of fonts 20/20 instead of trying to see smaller fonts, that go beyond a visual acuity of 20/20.

The solution Goggles4U

I know that the problem in question had nothing to do with the Goggles4U, but anyways I contacted explaining the situation and asked if they could give me some discount or an Exchange. They have a policy of Exchange that can be used for a time even when the frame is no good or not good in face, so this Exchange should be embedded in the prices without they take damage. They asked then the two requirements. I sent both and the report of the auto refractor.

To my surprise, a Goggles4U offered to exchange for two pairs of glasses. In the case of the first one, the Exchange would be the same frame. In the case of sunglasses, the frame was no longer available, then allow me to choose any other until the amount of US $ 24,95. I didn't even have to send the two pairs who were with me back. It makes sense, since they only take the, and they should have a very low cost for them, less than the return freight. Note 10 for a Goggles4U who did much more than I expected, that wasn't even their obligation, to keep the customers happy.

I chose the new frame for sunglasses, I choose one with a little more time on the lenses, to cover more brightness. Also asked to change the intensity of black of dark to medium, because I thought that the dark is good for outdoor use, but too dark to use in the car, whose glasses already block some of the light.

Curiously Goggles4U did the new glasses following the axes of auto refractor, without rounding, instead of prescribing. I suppose rounding occur in prescriptions because the only move forward 5 refractors in 5th and why the patient couldn't say which lens is best with a variation of 1. 1 must be imperceptible differences.

But I'll leave the review the new glasses for a future article. Wait…

Final Considerations

This was my fifth request with the Goggles4U. I even quote prices with local optical, but there's no way, they can't compete on prices with the Goggles4U. Furthermore, I really liked the way that they acted to solve the problem of prescribing. I'm sure I will continue buying with them.

When I started buying on Goggles4U in 2012, There was more variety of frames and lenses. From then on they stopped working with Designer frames and more sophisticated lenses. But the basic frames, the own brand of them, and essential lenses are still all there and it is still possible to find something you like.

Caramba! That saga! I'm glad it all worked out. Goggles4u prices really are unbeatable when compared to Brazil's. I would like to take the chance to buy, However as already use bi-focal lens, the complexity in the filling recipe is a little bigger. I'm afraid to put some info wrong.
