My Experience of Buying Discount Eyeglasses Online

February 22nd, 2011

I always like to keep up with the fashion trend. And I’m the first person to try shopping online in my families and friends. At first, I planned to buy clothes at online shops, they persuaded me not to buy things from there. They worried about that I would be cheated by the online retailers. Finally, when they saw my ordered clothes were high-qualified, they began to buy some daily necessaries from the online shops one by one. It seems that they have enjoyed the benefits.

Nowadays, I also begin to purchase eyeglasses online. I have worn eyeglasses for many years because of my near-sightedness. At early time, I like to walk into the optical stores to try on eyeglasses. After having a comprehensive eye exam, I can get accurate prescription. And then with the help of optometrist, I will pick out glasses depending on my face shape, skin tone and personality. All the people in the local optical stores are friendly. And the relaxed air makes me feel comfortable.

One time, I took a fancy to a pair of designer glasses in the local eyeglasses market. However, its high price made me stupefied. Oh, my god. It really will cost my one-month salary. I would pinch and save in the next days if I bought it. So, I decided to have a look at from the Internet. To my surprise, I really found the same one as my beloved one. However, they are much cheaper. As I liked it very much, I bought them without hesitation after telling prescription. About four days later, I received my glasses. To my delight, they didn’t let me down. My friends said that these glasses looked good on me.

I dare say that I have rich experiences in shopping online. And most online optical stores offer discount eyeglasses. But you should make comparison between different shops and pay close attention to the feedback from the former customers.

How to adjust metal discount glasses bought online?

October 28th, 2009

Surfing around the internet, you will find the best way to buy discount glasses is through online retailers. There are many advantages of online purchase of discounted eyeglasses, but one disadvantage is very apparent, which is that you need to adjust the frame if it doesn’t fit or easily fall off the nose.

When this happens, the best way is to ask for local optician’s help. But as your discount glasses are not sold there, optician has the right not to help you. Therefore you need to learn how to adjust your discount glasses by yourself.

If you have bought metal discount glasses, then you are lucky. Metal frames are the most bendable, and not so easy to break. Basically you can adjust four parts, which are the nose bridge, the nose pads, the temples arms and the ear hooks on the temples. For the nose bridge and the temple arms, you may use hand force to bend or twist these parts gently and carefully without any tools, and stop when you feel comfortable after putting on your face. For the nose pads, some of them can be adjusted by hand, while others can only be done by pliers. Remember to wrap the tips of the pliers with rubber and layers of cloth, so it won’t damage the surface of the metal. Please note the nose pads are joined to the rims with a very fine metal wire, this is very easy to break. The ear hooks are normally wrapped by plastic cover, so you need to heat this part before adjusting its angle. Some people recommend to use oven as the heat source by keeping some distance from the visible fire (not too faraway and not to close). But keep in mind not to overheat, and you need to test the pliability of the ear hook the way you go. This part needs to be done with caution.

Discount glasses are really cheap, but before your discount glasses can work for you, you need to do some work.

Is it intelligent to purchase discount eyeglass online?

October 17th, 2009

Some people argue that it is not a good choice to buy discount eyeglasses online. Their argument is that each person only has one pair of eyes, and therefore people should protect their eyes and as a result the eyes can serve people better.

Opponents of buying discount eyeglass online worry that the online retailers can not make the PD correctly so that the wearer may not get clear vision, some even will get headache. They also worry about that the buyer will finally end up with a wrong frame in wrong size and shape. They are the strong supporters of traditional way of buying discount eyeglass from stores.

This argument scared some buyers of discount eyeglass away in the previous years. Now the things are changing, as the first group of daring consumers bought the discount eyeglasses online, and reviewed with very positive feedback, now more and more people are trying to buy discount eyeglasses online as the second pair for back-up.

The fact if discount eyeglasses online is that, as long as you can get your prescription correct, there is no reason for online retailers to mess up the powers of the lenses and PD measurement. Furthermore, buyers only pay 1/10 to 1/5 of the traditional price, this is seductive enough to accept the likelihood that the discount eyeglass bought online ends up with a useless one even.

Actually the only shortcoming for online discount eyeglass is the lack of frame adjustment. So far as the adjustment is concerned, metal discount eyeglass is easy to adjust by yourself. There exist a bit tricky job for plastic discount eyeglasses, but still most buyers can manage to work it out.
