This blog focuses a a great deal of attention on the eyes and, separately, on Black Friday deals.
I’ve outlined 17 alternatives to Warby Parker that will let you try on eyeglasses at home, uncovered where to buy the cheapest possible prescription eyeglasses online, and investigated whether blue light blocking glasses really work.
Separately, I have been monitoring Black Friday clothing and apparel sales Every. Year. Since. 2012. (Check out my 2019 list of curated clothing, footwear and lifestyle sales for an overview of this year’s codes and deals.)
This year, I decided to break out separately the best Black Friday discounts, codes and deals on eyeglasses. Or, rather, the best Cyberweek sales and deals, since Black Friday as a standalone day is pretty much dead.
