Finding Your Frame

 When purchasing a new pair of glasses, make sure you select a frame that accommodates your comfort, style, and an appropriate lens package. One major factor to consider is the size of your frame. Everyone has a size they feel comfortable wearing. For some, it’s a small frame that perfectly fits their face. For others, it’s a large frame that makes them stand out from the rest. Some people enjoy wearing both! Whatever size you choose, make sure it’s something you’ll enjoy wearing almost everyday.

Be sure to keep in mind that certain frames are more suitable for particular lens packages. For example, those who wear progressives may want to select a frame with taller lenses to have a greater field of vision. Comfort is key.

What Kind of Lenses do you need?

Different types of vision impairments call for different lenses other than single-vision. We here at 39dollarglasses.com do not only carry single-vision lenses, we also have lined-bifocals and progressives (no-line bifocals) for both reading and distance. Ask yourself these questions: do I want sunglasses or options such as Premium Anti-Reflective Coating? Some companies offer Blue-Light Blocker Coating to protect against harmful blue light emitted from your computer, tablet or phone screens. In addition to protecting your eyes from blue light, 39DollarGlasses.com’s Blue Light Blocking Premium Anti-Reflective Coating will increase visual performance and improve the overall health of your retina.

How Much Will They Cost You?

We certainly can’t ignore price! We pride ourselves on offering affordable, quality glasses that are 70% cheaper than retail prices. We offer hundreds of styles for men, women, and kids. Furthermore, take into consideration how much you’re paying in regards to certain lenses compared to local retailers. Progressives and bifocals will always be a bit pricier than single-vision lenses but you can always find a good deal if you look in the right places. Just make sure you’re comparing the same lens type as well as lens material.

What’s Your Style?

There are so many styles to choose from when it comes to glasses, but which one best suits you? Are you a casual or sporty dresser? Will you wear the glasses to work or for leisure activities? All these factors play a major role in which pair of glasses will leave you happy with your choice. There’s nothing wrong with choosing a few pairs for different occasions. Perhaps you prefer to wear a sleek black frame for work but you want to change it up on the weekends with a retro wayfarer pair? A semi-rimless browline frame may be the best choice for your sunglasses, but maybe you would prefer a smaller, square frame for eyeglasses. Ordering glasses online offers you the option to order both straight from your computer or phone and have it conveniently delivered to your home or office.

Do You Have an Updated Prescription?

Be sure to have an updated prescription on you when ordering glasses online. Your prescription may have changed since your last eye exam. It is important to have your eyes checked once a year. An annual eye exam can also help detect eye related diseases such as Glaucoma, cataracts, or macular degeneration. An updated prescription will not only increase your chances of feeling completely satisfied with your new glasses, but also reassure you that you made the right decision to buy online.

Some people may have the option to order multiple pairs of glasses from their doctor’s office but may be limited in their selection due to the restrictions from their insurance companies. When you order online, you will not be restricted to a certain number of glasses or price range. Ordering glasses online allows you to order insurance-free and hassle-free.
