Everything You Need To Know Before You Order Glasses Online

Order Glasses Online

There are plenty of options for glasses all over the internet right now, but what should you take into consideration before you go ahead and choose a retailer to order glasses online? From frame size to lens type, everything makes a difference in how you will enjoy your new pair of glasses.

Why Buy Glasses Online?

Buying glasses online has never been easier as it is today. With a huge selection of style options that are trendy and affordable available for people from all walks of life, purchasing glasses online is a fast, convenient, and straightforward alternative to going to your local optical store.

What else should tick your check list when choosing where to buy your glasses online from, though? Let’s take a look in more detail…

Affordable Styles

Buy Glasses Online

Online glasses retailers should stock frames that fit the latest trends and your budget, so you can always find a great pair that will match your wardrobe. We’re proud of our wide and varied collections for men and women and offer great prices on brands you love like RayBan, Tom Ford, Flexon glasses and Aura glasses, as well as more budget brands, so you can always be in fashion without breaking the bank.

In fact, most of our frames are at 50% off normal retail prices for veterans, active military, and their families, meaning you get to enjoy great designer looks while making savings.


Whether you need a new pair of glasses or just want to expand your eyewear wardrobe with a pair of sunglasses or spare pair of specs, we know how important it is to get them made up quickly and easily for you. That’s why you should always look for a company that delivers glasses within your preferred time frame. Luckily, we deliver your eyewear right to your door with free, fast Fedex shipping to anywhere in the US. Simply choose a pair you like, enter your prescription and lens choice, sit back and let us get to work. Your new pair of glasses will be in your hands before you know it!

Shop Glasses Online

Just as receiving your new glasses fast is important, ensuring you can send them back if there are any issue is equally as important. That’s why it’s always a good idea to check the returns policy when you buy prescription glasses online. We are proud to a 30-day money-back guarantee for all eyewear bought on our website, so you can use your hard-earned money to choose another pair that suits your visual and lifestyle needs.

Cost Savings

It costs a lot of money to run a brick-and-mortar store. Rent, salaries, and inventory can artificially drive up the price of your glasses. That’s why online stores are often better from a price point of view, and ours is no different. At just a click away, we can invest dollars that would have gone into a physical store back into providing you with amazing frames and lenses that improve your vision and save you money in true style. We even provide you with standard single vision prescription lenses for free with your frames!

Lens Options

Choose Glasses Lenses

As well as having plenty of frame styles and colors to choose from, it’s essential that the online eyewear store you commit to purchasing from offers high quality lenses too. This means you’ll get the most bespoke glasses or sunglasses for your individual needs.

We offer a great selection of eyeglass lenses from industry leading suppliers Essilor. World-renowned for providing the very best in lens technology, when you choose Essilor lenses, you can guarantee that you’ll be enhancing your visual experience for the ultimate clarity and comfort whether you’re looking for Transitions light adaptive lenses, progressives, or blue blocking glasses.

How Do You Know Which Frame Is Right For You?

Not sure which frame is right for you? Keep a look out for a frame guide wherever you choose to buy glasses online!

One example is our comprehensive blog on choosing the best glasses to suit your face shape – take a look here.

Which Frame Is Right for me

Our amazing virtual try-on tool will also let you get a good idea at what you will look like in your new pair of glasses from the comfort of your own home. Simply let the camera capture your face and then it will be able to track your movements, so you can turn your head and get a complete view of how the frame will look on you from all sides!

Frame Dimensions

Each frame has its own size and shape. Looking for the frame dimension on each model will help you determine whether it will be too big or too small. All our frames list the dimensions in the information box.

For example, the Rogue RO 1018 is a 50-18-138.

  • 50 refers to the eye size
  • 18 is the bridge size
  • 138 indicates the length of the frame arm from the bridge to ear

We Stand Behind Our Glasses

While it’s great to have an all-virtual experience without having to wait for someone to help you, sometimes the human touch is still necessary to seal the deal on your glasses. You’ll be pleased to know that our optical experts are always just a click away!

Buy Prescription Glasses Online

If you’re having trouble picking a frame or want to clarify how your prescription will be incorporated into your chosen frames, simply send us a message, or give us a call, and we will make sure one of our leading technicians goes through everything with you so you know you are getting the right glasses to suit your specific vision needs.
