Things To Consider When Choosing Prescription Glasses Online
These days you can order eye ware from an online seller. This industry has reputable sellers as well as scammers looking to make a quick buck.
Select a reputable seller.
There are many online eyewear shops. The wise thing to do is order your spectacles from a reputable online store that has a lot of positive reviews and few negative posts. You also need to check the reliability of the online shop from the websites of consumer protection agencies. Making sure that you get a reliable seller is just the first step.
Get your prescription
The process of buying prescription glasses online still requires some of the same procedures as an in-store purchase. You need to get a current prescription before you order prescription glasses online. If you do not have a current prescription (that has been issued over the last 12 months) then you need to visit your optometrist. The prescription needs to include your pupillary distance (distance between your pupils). The pupillary distance is what the optician will use to place the centre of the lens. This measurements decreases the chances of getting the measurements wrongly when placing the lens.
Find out the return policy on the spectacles
All prescription glasses are not the same and different people like different kinds of glasses. You have to know if the company you are ordering from has a return policy so that if the glasses do not fit then you can return them. You also need to find out duration of the days on the return policy of spectacles. The longer the duration of return the better. Make sure that the store that you order from has a return policy whose terms you are comfortable with.
You also need to make sure that the website offers a warranty on their products. You need to know if the spectacles have a warranty so that in the event that your lenses are scratched or get some cracks you can get a new pair. When looking at the warranty assess the terms of a refund and whether you get the whole amount refunded (plus or minus the shipping cost).
Special offers by the seller
Some online eyewear companies offer various benefits when you buy from them. Some eyewear companies allow you to choose multiple frames, try them over a couple of days then choose the one that appeals to you. There are other companies that include anti-glare and anti-scratch features in all their spectacles.
Other eyewear companies offer free shipping on spectacle orders above a certain price. Other companies also offer non-prescription spectacles as well as prescription glasses. These companies are a good choice if you suffer from computer screen strain and just want great non-prescription glasses.
