How to buy prescription glasses online

Shopping habits the world over have changed a lot the last number of years. More and more people are now going the online route, and there is good reason for that. Let’s, for instance, consider the following points:

  • Convenience – People lead busy lives, which means time is of the essence. If you can save a few minutes or a few hours, it means you have less stress and can get more things done. Example: Instead of getting the car out, finding parking in the city and standing in a queue at the shop, you do your shopping right from your home or office – even on the tube on your way to work. As long as you’re connected, you can shop from wherever you are.

  • No Interruptions – You can use as much or as little time as you like when you shop online. Nobody is telling you to hurry up and you can truly make an informed decision before you place your order. Here at The Glasses Company we believe in never pushing the client. Instead, we want them to find the exact pair that they want. We want everyone to be able to choose the exact frame form the brands of their choice, as well as the lenses most suitable to their eyes.

  • Service – When you’re dealing with a good, trusted online firm known for their great service levels you can be assured of receiving your order within the time frame agreed upon, at the address that you supply. It is really as simple as that.

The above gives an indication of some of the points we believe in at The Glasses Company. Depending on who you are ordering your glasses from, the next points will outline the basic process. Make sure you get in touch with an online provider that makes it easy and simple to deal with them, a firm that leads you through the process with a few simple steps. You are the client, and you can expect the best product and best service.

  • Type of Glasses – Not everybody needs the same glasses. Therefore you will buy the type of glasses you require. Once you have found the firm you want to buy your glasses from, make sure the steps to do so are easy to follow and allow you the following options:

  • Prescription – Before ordering your glasses you’ll have your eyes tested at your optometrist’s to establish what glasses you need, e.g. reading, distance, bifocal or varifocal.

  • Frame – The frame is often that feature that will make you and your glasses stand out. In addition to being practical the frame also makes a fashion statement, and a good optician or glasses company will offer you a selection of frames representing all the leading brands.

Now you follow the website’s instructions by choosing the frame and entering the details of your lenses which the optometrist has given you. That is really all there is to it: enter the prescription details correctly and choose a frame. Administrative processes such as online payment and supplying a few details like address for delivery complete this very easy process.

Also, buying online is often much cheaper than ordering your glasses from a shop on the high street: the dispenser does not have a shop front which can be expensive to rent, forcing him to push up his prices. He is able to keep costs down for his clients and still make his own profit.

There are firms out there offering great service and assistance. Should you feel uncertain about this process, please contact us here at The Glasses Company. We’d be delighted to help.
