Now You Can See
By Mike Lipshultz
If you wear prescription eyewear and
want to save some money… In some cases BIG money then you need to read this!
Personally I have been wearing glasses
for over 50 years, so I have bought a lot of glasses.
Also due to my prescription, my glasses are never cheep! You see If I do not order those high end “thin” lenses my
glasses would have that “Coke bottle” look to them.
Add to that, that I go with a no line progressive, and even at places
like Costco or Sam’s Club, using “cheep” or free frames, a pair of glasses
can run me easily over $300.00! And
again, due to my prescription the lenses must always be done at an “outside”
facility and can not be done in house or in one day.
I have bought glasses at discount shops,
membership clubs, and even in Mexico. But
those were all done face to face. This
year I did it differently. I bought
my glasses online and saved a ton of money!
And you can to!
So read on and see your way to saving
Come-on, buying prescription eyewear
online! Like how does that work????
Well first if you are going to do this, it really is easy, but you should
follow some simply guidelines.
To make sure you get the right fit and
so on here is the trick to making it work.
Get an updated eye exam. Make
sure you have your Papillary Distance measured and put on your prescription.
There should never be an extra charge to do this.
Also there should be no extra charge to give you your written Rx.
Now you can measure your Papillary Distance yourself, but if you make a
mistake it is one you. And you
really should start with a fresh prescription, so let the ophthalmologist note
it on your prescription.
Also look at a pair of glasses you have
that fit you well. Most likely on
one of the temples, on the inside, you will find several numbers.
If you “like” the way they fit, just use those numbers to find and
select the frames that will fit you as nicely.
This web page at 39DollarGlasses http://www.39dollarglasses.com/help/Product-Questions/Choosing-the-right-frame.html
explains it well.
So how will your “new” glasses look
on you? Well most online retailers
actually have a way to upload a photo of yourself, and then you can “see”
different frames on your face! Not
The hardest part of doing this, is
simply over coming doing something you have not done before.
Is it worth doing? You bet it is!
I saved hundreds of dollars on my
glasses. I bought two pairs of
glasses. A high end pair from http://www.39dollarglasses.com
and a low end pair from http://www.eyebuydirect.com
. Please read our test review
article on buying from and dealing with these two companies called “Buying
Glasses Online? Yes, We Saw Big
So check things out for yourself. It really is easy to do.
Great styles and selections to select from. Great products and lens choices, and you can save big money!
In closing can you really get your
glasses for “free”. Well we
found lots of web sites stating that they would give you your first pair free
just for giving them a try. They
understandable limit the frames you can get.
They also do not give you any of the coatings for free.
We wanted to try a few of these “free” glasses.
But none of the glass wearers around here had a prescription that could
qualify for those “free” glasses!
