step in choosing the frames that would fit you better to enter the main information for your
prescription. Read on for everything you need to know about ordering online glasses, so you can
be sure to find the perfect pair (and enjoy all the benefits of shopping).
1. Know Your Prescription and Measurements
Make sure you have a backup of your existing, legitimate prescription glasses directly from your
eye care provider before you start shopping new lenses. If you have no prescription, arrange an
eye exam with your eye doctor.
Note - the treatments forcontact lenses and glasses are different. Not sure you've got your Rx
glasses Look at our guide on how to read your glasses and contact lens prescriptions.
When you're buying glasses online, it's also important to have your glasses measurements on hand. Knowing the measurements of your current glasses will help find the perfect fit for your next pair. Just take a look at the temple arm of your existing pair of eyeglasses or sunglasses to find the right figures.
Our guides on measurement of glasses and pupil distance (PD) provide more details on how to figure out your exact fit.
2. Pick your style and size
The vast number of options you have to choose from is one of the best parts about buying glasses
online! Look through our vast array of styles, frame sizes, shapes, and colors to find a pair that
suits your personality and taste.
Not sure what style suits you best When narrowing down your options, remember 3 key
- Which glasses complement my shape knowing which shape you most closely resemble
(heart, round, oval, or square) is the key to finding a pair of frames that suit you. If you
need help finding glasses that fit your face, check out our Face Shape Glass Guide.
- What sort of frame shows off my specific style? After you've narrowed down the frame
shapes match your design, you can pick a style that appeals to your distinctive personality.
Do you prefer something with a vintage flair, or a pair that is simple and sophisticated
Chances, you'll find yourself naturally attracted to a specific look – so go for it!
- Which frame color is best suited to me? For more tips and ideas to find the ideal color for
your glasses, check out our guide on how to choose the right frame color for your glasses.
You will learn which colors are recommended for your hair, eye color and skin tone.
If you've narrowed down the frame forms that match your design, you can pick a style
that appeals to your particular aesthetics. You like something with a little retro flare, or
something plain and elegant. It's up to you, so go crazy
I recommend that you choose a few different styles; I love having a simple pair for
everyday use and two alternate pairs that I can wear to change my look. I'm searching for
a frame with a tortoise pattern for my next set, so I'm going to use "Tortoise" as the color
to further improve my tests.
After searching through my options, I came across the Evergreen 6049 glasses in Deep
Tortoise. They're rectangular in shape, but have a softer line that won't be too harsh
against my angular features.
3. Our Lenses
After you've found the perfect frame, choosing your lenses is one of the last steps to buy
your lenses online.
There is a range of solutions, and you're sure to find an answer to your particular eye care
Depending on your prescription and the particular usage you need from your lenses, you
can choose thinner alternatives or even create your own prescription sunglasses. Both
lenses come with a scratch-resistant coating and you do have the option of upgrading to
high index thin lenses to guarantee that the lenses are even smaller, lighter and UV safety
With a low prescription, consider choosing Standard Index Lenses with Anti-Reflective coating, which means you don't have to worry about unwanted glare blocking your vision.
For those who spend quite a bit of time in front of digital screens on a daily basis, you can also order a pair of Blue Blocking lenses (more specifically Digital Protection lenses) to wear while you're working. If you spend extended periods of time in front of your computer, phone, or television, this is a great option.
