4 Things to Keep in Mind while Buying Prescription Glasses

Buying prescription glasses doesn’t have to be difficult or confusing; with these tips, you can find your perfect pair and know how to care for them so they last as long as possible. Knowing how to buy prescription glasses will ensure that you get the perfect pair every time and that you are able to use them comfortably, effectively, and reliably. Here are some of the things you should keep in mind while buying prescription glasses online.

Prescription should be latest:

When you are buying prescription glasses for yourself or for your family, make sure that your prescription is up-to-date. This will help you avoid unnecessary cost and expenses. Most eye care professionals and opticians will have a copy of your latest prescription when you visit them, so check with them if needed before buying any new frames or lenses. It is important to keep your eyes healthy by visiting an eye doctor regularly and getting an updated prescription every time, you do. 

Get your pupillary distance measured:

Before you go shopping for glasses, it’s important to know your pupillary distance. Without that number, you will not get accurate results from an online eyeglass-prescription test. So don’t just guess—find a local optometrist or ophthalmologist and ask for your PD measurement (typically found with a ruler under one eye).

You can also measure it yourself at home if you have a digital camera and ruler. If possible, try on both frame shapes: The most common frame shape is known as rectangular because it follows the natural shape of your face. 

Frames should be suits your face, shape, and your personality:

The first thing you should consider when buying prescription glasses is your face shape. The most common shapes are oval, round, square and rectangle. Frames that best suit your face shape are always a good starting point for picking a pair of glasses. However, you should also keep in mind that your personality has a lot to do with what kind of frames suit you best too.

For example, if you have an oval shaped face, then it’s probably best to stay away from round frames as they will make your face look even wider than it already is.

Need any especial coatings on your glasses:

Aside from your prescription, you may need special coatings on your glasses if you’re looking for something to protect your eyes from hazardous UV rays. While these may seem unnecessary, they’re an important factor when it comes to eye health. Ultraviolet light can lead to a number of medical issues, including cataracts and macular degeneration, so you should make sure that any lenses you get are 100% coated. If nothing else, they will help prevent minor annoyances like water spots and reflections. And don’t forget about sunglasses –these must be at least 99% UV coated as well.


Many people suffer from vision problems without realizing. Even minor problems can cause headaches, blurred vision and issues with depth perception. Wearing prescription glasses can help correct these problems and make it easier for you to go about your day. When buying prescription glasses, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First, be aware of any eye conditions you have that could complicate your purchase.

A Mama's Boy's Love for His Mother

Vicci™ Eyewear was inspired by a son’s love for his mother and his passion for fashion.

David Abramovici, the Founder of Vicci™ Eyewear, came from a family of artisans dedicated to craftsmanship since the 1920s.

David recalls that when his mother was around 65 years old, she would always ask him to stop by the local pharmacy to pick up some generic readers.

He would spend at least 20 minutes every time he went there, just standing in front of a rack full of tacky, ugly readers. It was difficult for him to choose a "nice" design that he thought would look good on his mother.

His mother enjoyed attending events and spending money on her dresses and accessories. Unfortunately, the readers are often underwhelming, and she was embarrassed to ever be seen wearing them. Like most women, she'd usually hide it in her lovely purse and would always look around before using them to read the menu or bill.

David wondered why there weren’t more choices for high-quality and fashionable custom readers for older women like his mother. Something she’d actually love to wear and be proud to be seen wearing.

And that’s when it hit him!
