Your glasses suck. They do. Really. Unless they are Frameri glasses, they’re out to get you. Maybe they look cool and maybe they were as expensive or cheap as you wanted them to be, but they don’t have your best interest at heart. The company that made your glasses wants to you have to re-order prescription lenses every time you get new frames. In other words, when you get rid of one, you’ve got to get rid of both.

Frameri is different. Frameri decided that it would be cool if you could keep your lenses and swap out the frames as often as you want. Cool, right? It only makes sense. If you wear glasses, why not be able to change the frames as often as you change other pieces of your wardrobe like shirts and pants?

They’ll make it through almost anything a normal person’s normal day might throw at them: and then some. So these are really, really tough glasses.

But that doesn’t mean they’re bulky or heavy. They’re not. In fact, they’re really, really light.

One cool thing that is worth mentioning is that Frameri has cut a deal with EnChroma to bring color to the color blind.

So I’m actually not a glasses wearer. Well I don’t wear prescription glasses. I’m one of those lucky people who still has perfect eyesight past age 30 (don’t hate too hard in the comments). But I do wear sunglasses. And I do know people who wear prescription glasses. So in order to facilitate this review I ...
