Looking At The World Through My Firmoo Glasses


Hi everyone, Katie here.

I was recently contacted by the people at Firmoo.com, the Global Online Optical Store. They sent me numerous emails asking if I would please review their product on GLOGIRLY.com.  I thought I might have misread something...maybe the email came from FUR-moo. Or maybe it was a mistake, given the fact that I'm ...a CAT.

Glogirly and I conferred and decided I might actually enjoy a pair of fashionable prescription eyeglasses and that you might enjoy reading about them.

Furmoo, I mean Firmoo, known for their incredibly low priced eyewear, has launched a First Pair Free Program. (try to meow THAT ten times fast!) When you order your first pair of glasses, all you have to pay is the cost of shipping. When they wrote to me: "Perhaps your lovely readers will love this program, especially for those who are fond of glasses..." well we KNEW it was purrfect.


The ordering process is simple. Even for humans. All you need to start is nice mugshot of yourself, preferably facing straight forward, and your PD. That's pupillary distance for you eyeglass rookies – how many millimeters there are between your pupils. The ones in your eyes. Just upload the photo and try on your favorite glasses "virtually."



If you don't like how they look on you, you can see them on all sorts of different people. Maybe you want glasses that look good on this guy, for example.



Once you've chosen your frames, just enter your prescription information and you're done. You can get sunglasses too. In fact, there are options to upgrade to coated lenses, thin, thinner or thinnest lenses, etc... We didn't have these options for our free glasses, so mine are the basic model.


About a week after I placed my order, they arrived safely in this stylish case. I particularly love how I'm able to use the carrying case for other important items.

Here are my glasses are in action...


A fresh interpretation of the Aviator Silhouette, straight from the runway.

These glasses can go head to head against any wand toy out there.





Sorry, Waffles. Stripes on stripes are a bit much. Not the best selection for a tabby.






There. Much better.





Katie's Disclosure: 
Firmoo gave me my new glasses for free in exchange for this unbiased review. I'm guessing they had no idea they were dealing with a CAT.  So as part of my review process I had Glogirly give the glasses a test drive. She said they were very comfortable and extremely lightweight. Despite the fact that Gloman thinks they make her look like Napoleon Dynamite, I may let her borrow them from time to time. Firmoo is definitely NOT responsible for the content of this article.

    BTW, I see Waffles has pulled out ahead again! He may not have much fashion sense, but Waffles is WAY cuter than that dog entry.

  17. If you can see other people, I wonder what other people thought when they saw Katie.. :)

  18. Katie, you are such a perfect model! We're sure Firmoo will see a huge increase in sales now that you've done your review. We love all your commentary and all the photos, but the one we love best is the fact that you can use the carrying case for such important things. Waffles would never figure out how to open it! Though we are voting for him every day!

  19. Hilarious! And kudos to your camera girl! ;-D

    I wonder if this falls under "any publicity is good publicity" or if Google will start asking "Did you mean FUR-moo?" when people search for them?

  25. Great review. We heard from that company too, but never received a response from them when we wrote back.

  26. Those look great on Katie, she should be the official spokescat for Firmoo. Or maybe they should get a cow?

  29. LOL, this is hilarious! On a more serious note, I do order my glasses online and have not used Firmoo--but Zenni instead. I'll keep them in mind.

  30. You are so right, MOL, stripes on stripes, too much! So tell us what ever cat really needs to know about glasses.. how well do the ear stems chew? Do they get all kinds of tooth marks in a very satisfying way?

    ReplyDelete
  31. How cool is that?!?! And it was awfully nice of you to let GloGirly give them a try. We all know who they look best on. Ha roo!
    Play bows,

  33. Thank you for this very informative review, Katie and Waffles Too. It's about time the advertising executives finally realized who's in charge of this world... cats! I for one am looking forward to getting a new case like the one you have for your turkey bone to store my precious crown... purrs from Zoey

  36. I think I remember doing a sponsored tweet for them ages ago but I never got anything free.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Waffles. I heard a rumor that was REALLY REALLY shocking. I'm still reeling.

    And it has nuffing to do with eyewear, either, Buddy.

    Waffles, are you sinning above your station???

    ReplyDelete
  38. Great review! How do you think they'd work for dogs? We need a carrying case for our drumsticks, too. Woof from Jeffie and Rudy

    ReplyDelete
  39. This is great! I live in Burundi (central africa) and am wondering which of the wild animals here could be put forward to promote this add: crocodile? black mamba snake? dik-dik gazel? warthog?.... well, it would be eye-catching!
