I don’t believe in paying a lot for glasses. I need my glasses to see, but I also think of them as a fashion accessory. I own about 5 pair. Why? Because I know how to get a great deal! And I love to change up my glasses with my look. I alternate wearing each pair to match my mood and my outfits. If you want to save on your glasses, the next time you get your eyes checked ask for a copy of your prescription. You should also ask for your PD (Pupillary Distance). This is the distance between your pupils. It is a number used to size your glasses.
Of course when you get your eyes checked you have the opportunity to buy glasses there. And if you are using your insurance and get a good deal, then by all means you should. However, if you are paying out of pocket for glasses, or you just want to find some more fashionable ones to switch up your look then you can order online. It is always great to have a backup pair of glasses anyway. This is especially true of children! They can be rough on their glasses.
You may wonder how you can order eyeglasses without trying them on. Each of the sites below includes a frame fitting tool. You upload your photo and you can see how the glasses will look. Neat, huh?
