6 Reasons You Should Not Buy Eyeglasses Online

Buying prescription eyeglasses online can be a risky decision due to the fact that an incorrect prescription can cause permanent eye damage. Furthermore, a consumer is unable to try on the frame to ensure they are comfortable and the appropriate size. It can also be difficult to assess the quality of the lenses and frames that would be provided. Additionally, prescription eyeglasses are heavily regulated by the FDA and a consumer can’t be sure if the lenses they are buying are in compliance with regulations. In order to ensure the safety and accuracy of their eyewear, consumers should always purchase prescription glasses from an optician or optometrist.

Don't be fooled by ads for online prescription eyewear. Good glasses equal good vision. Eyedeal Optical is here to make sure your eyeglasses fit you properly and work with your prescription. Here are a few things to consider when purchasing your frames and lenses online:

  • You don't get to try the glasses on or have someone help you in person.

  • It is hard to measure your own pupil distance, which you need to order your glasses. Some experts say it's like trying to cut your own hair.

  • It may be difficult to return the glasses.

  • A large study found about half the online glasses had the wrong prescription or other problems.

  • An incorrect prescription may give you blurred vision or make your eyes feel uncomfortable.

  • Especially with progressive glasses, there are other fitting measurements that need to be exact that are usually measured in person when you try on the frames.
