Rockville, MD (Vocus) December 5, 2009
In the current down economy, people have to cut costs—even by putting off necessities like a new pair of eyeglasses. A solution: buying prescription eyeglasses online. Many people have not heard of or even considered buying glasses online as an alternative to traditional glasses stores, but they’ll certainly want to now. With up to 90% savings over traditional stores, online glasses retailers save consumers an average of at least $150 per glasses pair. Yet even with such vast savings, some glasses wearers are understandably hesitant to make the switch to online.
Because buying prescription eyeglasses online is a new experience for many consumers, Just Eyewear, an online glasses retailer, demystifies shopping for glasses online with an impartial, step-by-step “How to Buy Glasses Online,” which includes links to all of the leading online glasses retailers. The guide explains that to buy glasses online you need to know:
1. Your frame choice (a style of your choice based on the fit of a previous pair of glasses),
2. Your prescription, and
3. Your pupillary distance (PD).
Once consumers have their prescription and their PD, they are then free to browse the thousands of frames available to find attractive glasses that aren’t insanely expensive.
“Three months ago, I had never heard of buying glasses online,” says Jocelyn Gibbons, the marketing director of Just Eyewear. “Honestly—it’s one of those things you never even think can be done online, until you try it—which I did. I saved over $300 on a pair of titanium frames for my husband. Now I’m converted to buying online.”
Empowered by online retailers, glasses wearers can now affordably own several pairs of glasses—for diverse occasions, styles, moods—instead of just one pair day in and out. The trick is in knowing the information needed to buy online, which can be a little challenging the first time around.
But what if you order a pair of glasses you don't like? While you can save a significant amount of money by shopping for your next pair of glasses online, the biggest drawback is you aren't able to try them on. To fix that, Just Eyewear has a 100% satisfaction guarantee policy—simply return any purchase for any reason for a full refund, no questions asked.
