#IciasList: Four Eyes – Review


I’ve been meaning to buy a new pair of glasses for months now but I just don’t have the time. Wearing contacts everyday can be a chore at times plus the process of going to the optical shop is just way too bothersome for my taste.

I heard about http://www.foureyes.com.ph at a Social Media Convention I attended a few months ago. It promises to give you prescription lenses without ever leaving your house. At first I was quite skeptic about this whole thing. Online shopping can only go a long way, but can they really make this work?

So how exactly can you order your own prescription lenses online? It’s a lot easier if you already know your prescription if not then you can schedule a home eye check-up for only Php 150 (appointment needed). All you need to do is choose from their variety of frames and either do a “Home Try-On” or a “Virtual Try-On” (I’ll go into details with that later). From there you just place your order with your required prescription and voila! Glasses delivered at your door step.

See below for a step by step guide:

  1. Go to http://www.foureyes.com.ph and click either Women / Men


2. Choose up to 5 of your favorite frames and click: HOME TRY ON. 


3. If the Home Try-on is not your style you may try Virtual Try-On instead. Just upload a photo of yourself and click “Virtual Try-on” to see how these frames fit your face.



So did Four Eyes deliver their promise of convenience? Read my own experience below:

Day 1 – October 5, 1:30 p.m.: I called to inquire regarding their “Home Try-On” procedure. The customer service was pretty good and answered all my questions at ease.  They said their representative will come over the next day at around 3:00 – 4:00 p.m.

Day 2 – Tuesday: No Show

Day 3 – Wednesday: No Show. At 5:00 p.m. I called again asking for an update. This time I talked to a different person named Kate (everyone I suggest you look for Ms Kate, she’s very accommodating). I told her my concern and asked for an update on when I will receive the home try-on frames. She kindly asked if I wanted the frames to be delivered the next day in the morning or in the afternoon, I said morning.

Day 4 – Thursday, 9:30 a.m.: Bright and early, Four Eyes representative delivered my 5 chosen frames. We’re allotted 30 minutes to try these frames on and make a decision. I chose the frame “Oxford” and provided my prescription details to their representative.

I highly recommend Four Eyes to provide you with all your spectacle needs. It’s VERY convenient and budget friendly.
