If you wear glasses, you know that buying a new pair of specs can put a sizable dent in your saving account. For a premium pair of prescription glasses, the cost of the lenses alone can range from $500 to $1000. When you add on the price of frames, you might wonder if those top-of-the-line products are really worth their hefty price tags.

You might be able to get by with a $10 to $20 non-prescription/prescription pair of glasses if you need something only for reading or distance. The frames can also be fitted properly so that they are centered for your eyes. You will not experience blurred vision, eye strain or headaches. Actually, the price of glasses starts to go up with progressive lenses, which have a continuous change of strength, for the different distances we encounter, in one lens. The progressive lens brings your vision as close to normal as possible, with less distortion and less need to move your head to find the sweet spot.

$10-$20 eyeglasses are made of a variety of materials such as plastic, metal and some mixed materials and come in different styles such as fully rimmed eyeglasses, semi-rimmed glasses and rimless eyeglasses. If you want to choose a pair of $10-$20 eyeglasses, you should obtain a prescription from the local optic store before buying the prescription glasses. You can ask the optician at the local optic store to measure the papillary distance. The online eyeglasses store will require the information in the prescription glasses and papillary distance to make a pair of eyeglasses with accurate power. Then, you need to make sure your face shape. If your face shape is round, it is recommended that you wear square eyeglasses frames. If you have a face that is proportionally oval, all shapes of eyeglasses frames will be suitable to you. If you have a square face shape, you can wear eyeglasses frames that are circular or curved. If you have oblong face shape, you should choose triangular eyeglasses frame. Circular and rectangular eyeglasses frames are suitable for people that have oblong face shape. People with heart face shape should wear eyeglasses frames that have wider bottoms. People with diamond face shape should wear circular eyeglasses frame. You can also wear cat eye eyeglasses frames if you have diamond face shape. If you have a face with narrow forehead, it is recommended that you choose the base down triangle eyeglasses frame.
