Whatever be the reason, if you’ve decided to buy prescription glasses online, you need to follow some very essential tips. Even if you are not physically wearing and checking the glasses, you still can order perfect glasses by following these simple tips but before that


Here is a major tip that will ease your shopping experience online and that is

Search by filters

If you are a regular online shopper, of course, you might be knowing how search by filter effectively works to choose your favourable product. Most of the online eyewear shops offer search by filter for every category to ensure you find a perfect pair of glasses. Whether it’s the colour, shape, style, size, material, brand, gender or price, you can choose as per your need by applying filter. This way you can shop hassle-free and quickly.

Now let’s pay attention to the other important tips:

Frame size:

Nothing is more annoying then misfitting frames that either sits tight or slips down your nose. Picking the right frame size is quite crucial. Now you must be wondering, how to know the frame is the right fit, virtually. It is very easy, you need to consider the 3 measurements eye size, temple size and bridge size. You can check your previous glasses arm to know the measurements and accordingly look for glasses online. Online stores do display frame measurements, so it’s easy for you to check and choose.

Face shape:

Not only a vision correction device, but glasses are also now as a fashion accessory now. Make sure you pick glasses that complement your face shape. Right frame shape will not only enhance your look but also fit properly. Choose contrast frame, if you have a fuller face, search for frames with sharp edges while if your face is edgy look for frames with no angles like round, cat-eye or oval.


Since you are in need of prescription glasses, you have to consider frame material too. You will be wearing glasses almost all day long so it has to be comfortable. Plastic and acetate frames are lightweight and safe for skin sensitive people. You can also go for hypoallergenic titanium or metal frames. Make sure whatever frame you choose it is lightweight and irritation-free.

Virtual try:

If the online eyewear shop offers a virtual try then why not try! You can wear as many glasses as possible virtually and pick the frames that best suit your face. It’s quite easy and fun.

Apart from these factors while shopping for prescription glasses online, you also need to keep your latest prescription ready.

Also, do not forget to choose the lens coating offered by the store for more clear, enhanced and protected vision. Lens coating like UV coating to protect your eyes from harmful sun rays, AR coating to eliminate reflection or blue light filter to eliminate digital eye strain are readily available, so consider them as per your need.

Hope these tips help you to make the right choice.
