Maddie and I like a lot of the same things.

We like the same food, traveling and eyeglasses! The last one we just figured out. It was time for Maddie to get some new contacts and I realized that she also could use some backup glasses for when her eyes were sensitive to the contacts. We started looking at the selection available at AC Lens and then we both picked out the same pair at the same time for her, which is pretty crazy when you think about how many pairs they offer.

There was just something about these glasses that drew us both in.

I think it’s pretty crazy that we both picked the same women’s eyeglasses at the same time. I picked these because I knew as soon as I saw them that they would look great on her, and she just picked them because she thought they had great style. Either way it was really nice being able to hang out with her and easily buy everything we needed for both of our eyes. Yep, I picked out something for myself too! There is a style to fit everyone in the family, from babies to grandparents and everyone in between. Maddie was able to get her contact lenses and prescription glasses and I found the perfect pair of sunglasses for myself. They have the widest range of products and more product categories than any other optical website, along with the widest range of contact lens prescriptions available online.

Aren’t these glasses cool! Made me almost wish I wore glasses too… almost.

Maddie get’s her eye sight (or lack there of) from Pete. It is really easy ordering from AC Lens. You just pick your glasses or frames, email your prescription or provide your eye doctor’s phone number, and then let AC Lens do the rest. They even check with your eye doctor to ensure quality, safety and accuracy. AC Lens also saves you money. Their contact lenses, frames and sunglasses are as much as 50-75% less expensive than if purchased in a doctor’s office.

Just a couple days after placing our order we received a well packed box and we were both really excited to see how she looked in them. I’d say we hit a home run! They are awesome!

She’s now set for the next year with both new glasses and new contacts. 


I love my new sunglasses too and I love that Maddie and I both had so much fun shopping for our new eye wear. She actually picked out my sunglasses and she got it exactly right. I love that these have more of a square look than my past glasses. I never would have thought to buy them and I’m so glad I went with her suggestion. It’s pretty awesome when your kids get older and you can be friends too. I’ll always be mom first, but it’s fun being friends too!

Looking to bond with your teen too? I highly recommend doing some shopping together at AC Lens. They are your online destination with everything for your eyes. It has unsurpassed selection, the latest styles, and superior customer service, all at the right price. I found them to be the ultimate time-saving solution for Mom’s to get all of her family’s eyewear needs, without having to leave the house. Plus they make it fun! AC Lens offers award-winning customer service with same-day shipping on contacts, free returns within one year, free lenses with every eyeglass frame purchase and a help line.

How do you spend time with your teen?
