Buying Eyewear Online

With shopping online for eyeglasses being a relatively new experience, it comes as no surprise that many feel uncertain or even intimidated by it.  However, once you get familiar with these simple concepts, it’s an easy and highly convenient experience.

Understand your frame size

The foremost step in looking for eyewear online is to choose frames with the correct size so that your comfort is not impaired. Your frame size comprises eye, bridge, and temple sizes and is vital in helping you search for suitable eyewear.

Select eyewear according to your face shape

The ideal eyewear is one that complements your facial features best. It can make even an ordinary appearance seem extraordinary. Therefore, it is important to know which frames will suit you best.
For more help, take a look at the handy Handbook of Facial Features on the Eyeweb site.

Look for frames to match your personality

Wherever you go your eyewear definitely speak volumes about your personality. Bright colors showcase a casual and fun demeanor while dark or neutral color tones display poise. Similarly, the material of the frame also plays an important role in determining its identity.

Choosing Lenses

Knowing in advance which lens type you require helps you enter your prescription correctly as well as choose the correct lens for yourself.  First, decide whether you need single or multi-focal lenses.  Single-vision lenses have one corrective power and are usually prescribed for those who are either near or far-sighted, but not both. Multi-focal lenses, on the other hand have more than one corrective power and are prescribed for people with difficulty seeing things both up close and far away. Multi-focal lenses can be bi-focal, tri-focal or progressive.
Next, you should decide among the three basic lens materials, each with a different cost and purpose – Plastic, Polycarbonate and High Index.
Finally, choose the lens coating that you need to add to your lens. For example, UV coating, as the name suggests, protects your eyes from the ultraviolet radiation of the sun, and AR (anti-reflective) coating is recommended for those who spend a lot of time on computer screens.

Understanding and Entering Your Prescription Information

Entering your prescription online is simply a matter of entering the correct numbers in the appropriate fields.  If you don’t find anything written for fields such as Base and Prism, simply leave those fields blank. Pupillary Distance (PD) is just as important as it is overlooked by many, so be sure to ask the eye specialist to write it down for you in the Prescription.  If you don’t have the PD on your prescription, you can upload your photo using our patented calibration strip and calculate this value.
