Tips to successfully buy glasses online:

Fun fact: I worked as an eye consultant at one of the worlds leading eye companies. So I want to share with you all a few tips to make your online buying experience hassle-free.
  • Have your most updated prescription. It is important to have your prescription updated every 1-2 years.
  • Never guess or measure your pupillary distance (PD) yourself. Sometimes your eye doctor may not write it down on your prescription card, but they always check it. Simply call your office and ask for your PD
  • Read review, look at others with your similar face shape, and utilize the glasses try-on feature when available.
  • Ensure that the company has a return policy in case your glasses do not fit the right way or something about your prescription is wrong. Check out EyeBuyDirect policy here:
  • Know what your glasses use is for: distance, reading, non-prescription, multi-focal…Don’t guess, call and ask!
  • Never guess and enter your prescription. If you are confused, all reputable online glasses retailers will allow you to e-mail or fax in a picture of your prescription and they will enter it in for you correctly.
  • Overall, I really enjoyed my buying experience. My glasses came in 5 days, my prescription was correct, my frames fit nicely, the packaging was top-notch and the quality was worth more than $12.
