Learning how to buy glasses online is easier than you think! Finding the frames that will fit you best to entering the key details for your prescription, our guide will help you through every step. Read on for everything you need to know about how to order glasses online, so you can feel confident about finding the perfect pair (and enjoy all the benefits of shopping for frames online).
Before you start browsing new frames, make sure you have a copy of your current, valid glasses prescription directly from your eye care professional. If you don't have a prescription, schedule an eye exam with your eye doctor.
Remember – contact lenses and glasses prescriptions are different. Not sure you have your glasses Rx Take a 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 about glasses measurements and pupillary distance (PD) provide more details on how to figure out your exact fit.
One of the best parts about buying glasses online is the vast number of options you have to choose from! Take a look through our huge variety of styles, frame sizes, shapes, and colors to find a pair that suits your taste and personality.
Not sure what style fits you best Consider three main things when narrowing down your selections:
Once you've narrowed down which frame shapes will complement your features, you can decide on a style that speaks to your unique aesthetic. Do you prefer something with a little vintage flair, or something simple and sophisticated This is completely up to you, so go wild.
I recommend choosing a few different styles; I love to have a simple pair for everyday use and two alternate pairs that I can wear to change up my look. For my next pair, I'm looking for a frame with a tortoise design, so I'm going to select "Tortoise" as the colour to refine my results even further.
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.
After you've found the perfect frame, choosing your lenses is one of the last steps to buying glasses online.
There are a number of options, so you're sure to find a solution for your individual eyecare needs.
Based on your prescription and the specific use you require from your lenses, you can select thinner options or even build your own prescription sunglasses. All lenses come with a scratch-resistant coating and you also have the option to upgrade to the high-index Thin Lenses to ensure your lenses are even thinner, lighter, and UV protected.
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.
