5 Tips for Buying Prescription Glasses Online

If you need new prescription glasses, purchasing them online can be a great way to save money. However, there are a few things to consider before making your purchase. Here are five suggestions for purchasing prescription glasses online:

#1: Make Sure the Site You're Buying from Is Reputable and Has a Good Return Policy

There are a few things to look for to ensure the site is legitimate:

  • First, see if the website has a good return policy. If the glasses do not fit properly or you are dissatisfied with them, you will be able to return them.
  • Second, see if the site offers a money-back guarantee. This will protect you if the glasses are not as described.
  • Finally, see if the site provides free shipping. This will result in savings on your purchase.

By following these guidelines, you can ensure that you are purchasing from a reputable site and that you will be pleased with your purchase.

#2: Check Out Other Customer Reviews to See What Kind of Experience They Had with The Site

If you're thinking about buying prescription glasses online, one of the best things you can do is read customer reviews to see what other people think. You should look for the following in customer reviews:

  • How easy was it to find the right glasses? Were the glasses’ descriptions clear and accurate?
  • How simple was it to get the glasses? Was the ordering procedure simple?
  • How long did it take to get your glasses? Were they delivered on time?

Take note of any negative reviews and see if there are any common complaints. This will give you an idea of what to expect and will help you decide if purchasing prescription glasses online is right for you.

#3: Compare Prices Between Different Sites Before Making a Purchase

When comparing prices between websites, keep the following points in mind:

  • To begin, make certain that you are comparing apples to apples. Make certain that the sites you're comparing sell the same type of glasses.
  • Second, consider the shipping and handling costs. Some websites provide free shipping, while others charge a fee.
  • Finally, go over the fine print. Some websites charge hidden fees, such as restocking fees, which can quickly add up.

By considering these factors, you can ensure that you are getting the best price on your prescription glasses.

#4: Be Sure to Provide Accurate Information About Your Prescription When Ordering Glasses Online

Although purchasing prescription glasses online can be a convenient and cost-effective option, you must provide accurate prescription information when ordering.

The first step is to obtain a copy of your prescription from your eye doctor. Before placing an order, update your information if your prescription has changed since your last eye exam.

This includes your prescription strength, pupillary distance, and frame size. Incorrect information may result in incorrectly sized glasses, causing eye strain and headaches.

Similarly, include any special requirements for your glasses (such as an unusually high or low prescription) when placing your order.

By taking a few extra minutes to double-check your information, you can help ensure that you get the right glasses the first time.

#5: Allow Enough Time for Delivery So You Can Try on Your New Glasses and Make Sure They Fit Properly

While most online retailers offer free shipping and returns, your glasses may still take a few days to arrive. And if they don't fit properly, it can take even longer to exchange or refund them.

So, when ordering your new glasses, keep shipping time in mind and allow yourself a few days to try them on and ensure a good fit. This way, you can avoid unnecessary delays or frustrations.


As you can see, there are numerous factors to consider when purchasing glasses online.

Fortunately, many of these hints are easily accessible via the Internet.

If you follow them all and do your research before placing an order, you should have no trouble determining what works best for your needs!

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!
