HOW to buy prescription eyeglasses online

  • Learn how to buy prescription eyewear from EyeBuyDirect Just because we have unbeatable selections of frames and lenses, doesn't mean you should be overwhelmed. We can show you the hassle-free way to order your perfect glasses from EyeBuyDirect.

    Hi there. Buying glasses online is just as easy as buying anything else: books, flights, clothes. But for all you first timers, this video is for you. Follow these simple instructions and your shopping experience will be smooth sailing.

    First, if you already wear glasses, take a second to look at the arm and you can see the size noted in small numbers. Just as with clothes, knowing your size will ake it much easier for you to narrow down your selection. There is no need to find frames with the exact same size, but you definitely want to keep this as a reference.

    Take a minute to understand your prescription. It’s really simple. Or you can take a look at my tutorial where I explain everything you need to know about it. Sharing is caring. So read customer reviews and look at photos shared by our community members on our Wall of Frame. (Should this be edited out?) Use the EyeTry virtual fitting room and get an idea of what the glasses you’re looking at would look like on your face.

    Last, experiment. With lenses and glasses at such affordable prices, now is the time to experiment with new shapes, colors and styles.
