I have been wearing glasses now probably for more than 25 years of my life. Over the years I have had some pretty interesting glasses and most of the time my choice of glasses was determined by the factor of money.Last year I had an eye test done and opted to just get new lenses put into my old frame as it was cheaper than getting a new pair. As much as I love my glasses I felt after four years I needed a new look. And then enter the team of Ootrey offering me the opportunity to collaborate with them. I was over the moon as I had seen this local company online and seen them work with local bloggers.
Who are Ootrey ?
Ootrey can best be described as an online optician that offers one services in the comfort of their home at an affordable cost.The company is locally based and does not have a branches all over the country thus making service personal and really efficient.
The word Ootrey is derived from the word outre which means “passing the bounds of what is considered normal and proper , unconventional and bizarre. Such a perfect name for a brand that is breaking boundaries of the traditional process of getting glasses.
5 reasons why I love Ootrey
1. I love the fact that with my crazy lifestyle of balancing work and blog I can order my glasses online without having to go into a store and make an appointment.
2. The cost factor is a huge thing for me as 4 years ago when I got my last pair of glasses it wiped out all my medical aid savings and I still had to pay in an amount. So finding out that all glasses including lenses will only cost me R899 now that is a huge bargain.
3. The selection of frames are pretty cool with unique designs and the fact that each frame has a name rather than a code is pretty cool.
4.The try on home service is such a great way to try on frames in the comfort of your home or office and get your loved ones to help you pick a pair.After spending hours on the site I wanted ALL the glasses so this try on service was perfect for me.
5.The speed and efficiency in service.
How does the Ootrey home try on service work?
After spending ages on the Ootrey website and consulting several friends, I picked the frames I liked the most.Once that was done within two days I was sent my box of frames to try on.I was most impressed with the packaging as glasses are so fragile.Inside the box was also an already written out form for when I had to return the frames saving me time.So when I frames arrived ,I tried each one on and asked my followers on my various social media platforms to help me decide which one to pick.I love the fact that all frames are plastic and there are so many to pick.After trying on all the different pairs I knew that I wanted a new look and something very different to my current pair of glasses.I still could not decide and then threw caution to the wind and decided on Peggy.
