Tips On Buying Prescription Glasses Online
These days you can order anything online even prescription spectacles. This industry has reputable sellers as well as scammers looking to make a quick buck.
Opt for a recognized seller.
There are lots of eyewear shops online. The wise thing to do is order your spectacles from a reputable online store that has a lot of positive reviews and few negative posts. You can also check the rating of the supplier on the websites of consumer protection agencies that vet online eyewear companies. Getting a good seller is just the initial step in ordering prescription glasses online.
Have a current prescription
The process of buying prescription glasses online still requires some of the same procedures as an in-store purchase. You need to get a current prescription before you order prescription glasses online. In case you do not have a current prescription (that was issued less than a year ago) then you need to see your optometrist to get one. You also need to make sure that the distance between your pupils (pupillary distance) is measured. Pupillary distance helps the optician to know where to place the center of the lens in the frames. This is integral for online ordering because retailers want to make sure the lens measurements are accurate.
Find out the return policy on the spectacles
Not every prescription glasses are equal and not all of them are a good fit for you. In case the glasses are not a good fit, you need to know whether you can return them and get others. You need to know after how long you can return the spectacles. The more the number of days on the return policy the better. Make sure that the store that you order from has a return policy whose terms you are comfortable with.
Apart from the return policy you need to find out if the company offers some form of warranty on their products. You need to know if the spectacles have a warranty so that in the event that your lenses are scratched or get some cracks you can get a new pair. Choose a company that can offer to refund you almost the whole amount of the purchase and the shipping cost.
Special perks offered by the company
Some online eyewear companies include some special offers to their clients. Some of these companies allow you to order multiple frames, try each of them before settling on one frame then return the rest. Other eyewear companies include anti-glare and anti-scratch features in all their orders.
Other eyewear companies offer free shipping on spectacle orders above a certain price. Some online eye ear companies specialize in both prescription and non-prescription glasses. These companies are a good choice if you suffer from computer screen strain and just want great non-prescription glasses.
