10 Tips for Choosing the Perfect Pair of Eyeglasses Online

Shopping for eyeglasses online can be a convenient and cost-effective way to find the perfect pair of glasses. However, with so many options available, it can be overwhelming to choose the right pair. Here are 10 tips to help you choose the perfect pair of eyeglasses online:

  1. Start with your prescription: Make sure you have an up-to-date prescription from your eye doctor before you start shopping online. This will ensure that you are getting the correct lenses for your vision needs. The prescription expires in 2 years.

  2. Measure your PD (pupillary distance): Your pupillary distance is the distance between the centers of your pupils. This measurement is important for ensuring that your glasses are positioned correctly on your face. For more info about HOW TO MEASURE YOUR PD please click here.

  3. Check your coverage for optical if you have insurance: Lenzzy is registered in most of the insurance companies to make it faster for you to get your reimbursement.

  4. Consider the price: Determine your budget before shopping for eyeglasses online if you don't have insurance.

  5. Consider your face shape: If you have an oval face, you can generally pull off any frame shape. If you have a round face, opt for angular frames to elongate your face. Square frames are best for heart-shaped faces, while round frames suit those with square faces.

  6. Think about your lifestyle: Consider your daily activities and choose eyeglasses that will be comfortable and practical for your lifestyle. If you are active, look for frames that are lightweight (titanium)  and durable.

  7. Choose the right material: Eyeglass frames are typically made from metal, plastic, or a combination of both. Metal frames are strong, durable and can be lightweight if titanium. Plastic frames are lighter and better for skin allergies.

  8. Consider the colour and pattern of the frames: Choose eyeglass frames that complement your skin tone and personal style. If you have a warm skin tone, opt for frames in golden, copper, or bronze hues. If you have a cool skin tone, go for frames in silver, red, or blue. 

  9. Choose the right look for your personality: Plastic frames usually give you a younger, fun look and metal frames give the business, elegant look.

  10. Look for an online store where you can get one-to-one customer service communications that you can depend on for advice or troubleshooting for your order. In Canada, Lenzzy Optical is a great option for purchasing glasses online. Lenzzy offers phone calls and zoom meetings to make sure all your questions and concerns are answered on time. 

By following these tips, you can find the perfect pair of eyeglasses online with confidence. 
Happy shopping!
