If you think tape and glue will no longer do it for your glasses, it’s time for you to get a brand new pair online. With a wide range of frames to select from, online eyewear stores, especially Specscart offer great glasses at half the price.
As someone buying prescription glasses online for the first time, you may have your doubts. But fret not, because we have all the best tips for you!
- Keep your prescription handy and know your PD
If you are reading this blog, chances are, you have already had an eye test done! Your prescription should be usually less than two years old if you want to buy glasses online. In your prescription, SPH stands for sphere and this usually corrects near-sightedness or far-sightedness. CYL or cylindrical vision measurements in the prescription are used to correct astigmatism. You may also have +/- signs accompanying the SPH and CYL numbers on your prescription. A ‘+’ sign usually denotes a pair of reading glasses and a ‘- ’sign is used if you have problems seeing things far away!
Secondly, knowing your Pupillary Distance or PD is important. This is because if you have new glasses altered for your PD, you don’t have to stress your eyes while adjusting to your new pair of glasses.
When ordering online, it’s great to keep your prescription or a photo of the prescription handy. Specscart provides you the option to upload a photo of the prescription so that you don’t have to take the pains to enter it manually, but you can enter it manually too. We also provide an option to send us your prescriptions via email after you’ve ordered a pair of glasses.
