Today my new glasses from GlassesShop.com arrived in the post. Mine are prescription glasses and I love them! In fact I spent quite some time choosing the frames I wanted, trying to narrow it down from about 20 pairs to just one!
You can also get sunglasses if you’re that way inclined, I’m not really a sunglasses kinda girl though.
Anyway, I thought I’d give you some tips on buying glasses online to demystify the experience for you and make it a bit easier if it’s your first time.
Top Tip #1
Get a printed prescription from your optician: I had some fun deciphering my handwritten prescription in order to place my order!
Top Tip #2
Measure your PD (the distance between your pupils): This is made easier if someone else does it for you, maybe ask your optician to measure it for you while you’re there.
Top Tip #3
Try on some frames in the shop to get an idea what suits you, and then use the virtual trying on service on the GlassesShop website to double check.
So there you have it, my top tips to buying eyeglasses online. Why not check out GlassesShop for your next pair?
