If you’re looking to purchase cheap spectacles, then you had better be aware of of the quality and value of the spectacles you buy. There are a number of wholesalers online that sell cheap goods, for me the word cheap associates itself with low quality or even second hand goods. So be aware of stores that sell low quality goods at a cheap prices. But on the other hand there are genuine store the sell quality goods at a low cost price all that’s needed is good background research before you start spending your hard earned money.
One should firstly search around for a reputable dealer that is willing to give you advice on what you should except if you buy them second hand, although I would suspect that he would tell you that buying cheap spectacles should not be recommended, and I would agree because when it concerns your vision, you really only have one chance to get it right, other wise you will find it very expensive in the long term. If you do purchase cheap spectacles, have them checked over buy your doctor, he should be able to tell you if there are any flaws in the specs. If you are still unsure then it may pay you to take someone along with you that knows what to look for.
If you want to check them yourself then here are a couple of things to look for, first check the surface of the lenses, if you see any signs of pits or striations on the lens, that’s a flaw. Also make sure the lens is securely mounted into the frame of the spectacles itself. With all these things considered if you still are going to buy spectacles at a cheap price then you can expect cheap value for your money. So I do recommend that you consult your doctor first before heading down that path, you will be well aware of the consequences if you don’t. If possible check out the goods before you buy them and make sure to tell the store owner if you detect any flaws in the merchandise.
