As we all know, a pair of quality eyeglasses is costly. If you go to buy a pair in specialty stores, such as Pearle Vision and LensCrafters, it may cost you a big portion of your monthly salary. Therefore, shopping online will save you a lot of money.
However, many customers never try purchasing glasses on line even if they are network fans who spend a lot of time in shopping on line. Because they consider buying glasses to be very complex, which needs one to do optician’s practice, select spectacle frame and lenses and to process and assemble. They think that glasses bought on line can not be guaranteed to be qualified and suitable for them. As a matter of fact, all the above steps are necessary, but they don’t have to be done simultaneously.
You can firstly get a prescription from your eye doctor, and then choose respectively the frame and lenses on the Internet. After you receive your online order, take them to an optical store to ask for processing. Most optical stores have automatic machining which are able to process and assemble glasses according to different types and sizes. What’s more, the processing charges are fairly cheap. It is researched that by this way, 60% of your money can be saved. Actually I am one of the beneficiaries who have saved money by purchasing frame and lenses on line and processing in an optical store.
Like most of the customer mentioned above, I was also one of them who didn’t believe purchasing glasses on line possible. But as a student who hardly has any source of income apart from earning some penny by doing part time jobs, I can’t afford those expensive glasses in optical stores. When I was pondering how to save money one day, one of my classmates suggested me to buy frame and lenses on-line and then ask for processing in an optical store.
Recently I heard a even better way to buy online eyeglasses is to buy a finished eyeglasses from handful of websites, one is called Firmoo.com, this New York-based website offer variety of eyeglasses, freeing you from the hassle of going to optical stores for final fitting.
