1. A Medley of Materials

When on the fence about purchasing eyeglass lenses online start small – begin with lens materials. Lenses are made of varying materials. With the progression of technology, lenses have advanced too.

Now that you’ve picked your lens material, let’s move to the coating. You can choose from a range of coatings for your lens as per your needs: blue light blocking, anti-glare, hydrophobic (water-resistant), these lenses keep snow, fog, and rain at bay. That’s not all, there are more to choose from: scratch-resistant lenses, photochromatic lenses (these change to a dark shade in the sunlight and turn clear indoors), and UV protection lenses. Pick a coating based on your daily needs and lifestyle.

3. Wallet Woes?

Now that you have these two factors in place, go ahead and go on your shopping spree online. If you’re worried about stores being more expensive online don’t be. You can purchase eyeglass lenses online at a lower price range in comparison to their offline counterparts.

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!
