Buy Glasses Online: My Review! (A Positive Experience)

by on Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

I recently ventured into territory I’ve never been into before – getting glasses online. The truth you can’t argue is that you can buy glasses online cheap, much cheaper than when you buy glasses the “normal” way in stores. I was wary, of course. I’m a cynic, guys! But I talked this over with my eye doctor.

While the receptionist had the expected reaction – telling me all sorts of reasons not to do it, the doctor was bluntly honest with me. He said that online sites have prices that there’s no way that they can beat and that many of his patients have had success in purchasing the glasses online. The one downside he mentioned to me is that if you need bifocals it can be more difficult to purchase the right glasses.

But I have singular vision! So, yay! And it turns out that all glasses have three numbers on the inside of the frame to tell you the size – so you can easily figure out what size to get. I got my glasses from Just Eyewear, and they have an easy way of typing in what your glasses size is and then showing you what glasses they have for you.

(Well, you don’t need to see a doctor if you just had a prescription a few months ago, but you’ll still need those numbers.) The one number you might have to ask them to give you is the PD – pupillary distance. Turns out they can measure that for you quickly and easily!

The Just Eyewear site is run by people that are SO nice. I e-mailed them (without them knowing I was writing a review) using an anonymous name/e-mail with some questions. See, I had glasses where the numbers were weird and I wanted to see if they could translate the numbers – they could and did! I also asked them some specific questions about a few different pairs of glasses. The person who e-mailed me back was open and friendly (I didn’t get a “you are annoying me” vibe that you get from some sites online when they e-mail you.)

They also have a 100% guarantee – if you don’t love your glasses for ANY reason, you can return them within 30 days for a full exchange or refund.

My glasses arrived today and I LOVE them. And I managed to get the frames and the lenses for about $50 (plus with the addition of having them made as thin lenses.) My last pair of glasses was like $300! That’s an amazing price reduction. And what about the glasses? They fit well and I don’t even need to go in and get them adjusted!

While I don’t know if I can recommend buying glasses online cheap if you need progressive lenses, if you have singular vision then this is something you MUST try out! You can’t afford not to – get my pun? Because it’s so much cheaper? Yea, I’m a genius with puns.
