If you live where I live, you’re probably used to the sun beating down on you every chance it gets. From driving to work or even just walking to the mailbox, the sun is always shining, which can be a headache for those of us who need corrective vision.
Although I wear contacts, I still limit my contact lens usage to special occasions or days where I’ll be out in the sun all day so that I can wear sunglasses uninterrupted. However, it’s such a pain to switch back and forth between contacts and regular glasses, especially if you suffer from chronic dry eye like me and your contacts dry out after a few hours!

After deciding to finally get some glasses with Transition lenses, the next obstacle ensued: who carries both Transition lenses and frames that can take me from day to night and can also match my personal style? Because I wear glasses daily, investing in a pair of fashionable frames is extremely important because an unflattering pair can not only be an outfit dealbreaker but can also hide the best features of your face.
With both affordability and style availability working against me, for several months I was really discouraged. But when I found several affordable options from Coastal.com, it was hard to pick just one pair of glasses – I got 2!
On Coastal.com, frames are as affordable as $19 and are available with prescription, non-prescription or Transition lenses. If you have an FSA (Flexible Spending Account) or HSA (Health Savings Account), you can also use your insurance benefits on Coastal as well!
Coastal makes it incredibly easy to buy prescription glasses online. All you have to do is check your current pair of glasses to find your measurements and then use the MyFit tool to find glasses that share a similar fit.
Not only is Coastal a great affordable option, but it’s the fashionable choice for people who wear glasses. I wound up getting a pair of Joseph Marc aviators as well as the cutest pair of cat eye frames from Derek Cardigan and received $156 in savings. If you’re into bigger brands, Coastal also carries brands like Ray-Ban, Oakley, and more.
Here are some of my favorite designer picks on sale:
Derek Cardigan 7007: $95

Calvin Klein CK5810:
Isaac Mizrahi 30007-50:
