{Featured Brand} Shopping for Glasses Online

Shopping for glasses online is becoming more popular as we demand for things with the click of a button. Practically everything can now be bought or reserved online and that has become the norm of our generation. We are in the most technologically advanced era, its suffice to say our day-to-day life has some catching up to-do. In most respects it has and in others, it’s coming to terms with it but do we want it all? I am someone who has a 50/50 love/hate relationship with technological advancements we’ve made so far. Shopping online has made it so much easier to have access to many things at the click of a button. But at what cost? We’ve gone and lost that human connection you get from shopping in store.

Shopping for glasses online

Whilst I have this complaint about what we’ve lost due to shopping online, I have also embraced the ease of access it has brought. Today we live such busy lives that it’s hard to make time to just pop into your opticians and get your eyes checked. These days it’s more unless it’s affecting your work many companies want you to do it in your own time. When you do it, it’s either your glasses are not available or you’re unable to purchase them due to the price. And this is where shopping for glasses online comes in, because you can get prescription or non-prescription glasses online.

Shopping For Glasses Online

The brands featured today are all brands that I have worked with in the last 3 years, I will be starting with the latest. All these brands are online eye glass shops offering prescription and non-prescriptions services. These brands are all affordable and majority offer many designer brand frames at affordable prices.

Perfect Glasses

Last month (December 2016) I was fortunate enough to be contacted by the brand for a possible collaboration. I hadn’t heard of the brand prior to being contacted but I was happy with what I saw. Perfect Glasses are the UK’s largest online providers of sunglasses and prescription glasses. Launched in 2009, their aim is to not only be the most affordable online shop but providers of quality products.

CheapAss 

Prior to being contacted by CHEAPASS, I had not heard of the company before. I did have to do a little research (google) on the company before collaborating. I found the website easy to navigate and was able to quickly choose the glasses that I liked. The prices are really affordable, even though it isn’t the season for sunglasses it’s still good to purchase them now.

Glasses Shop

Before being contacted by the company, I had never heard of the glasses shop. They are an online eyeglasses shop offering doctor quality prescription and non-prescription glasses. What I love about these glasses is how they frame my face and offer great protection for my eyes from the sun.  Glasses Shop makes high quality designer eyewear available for every customer who wants a pair of eyeglasses customized for them.

Adlens Glasses

Prior to be contacted for a possible collaboration, I had seen many ads on the TV about Adlens view plus and I was curious. Adlens ViewPlus glasses are amazing non-prescription reading glasses which don’t only look cool but you can adjust them to your needs. I think this is what makes them standout of the crowd, you can adjust each lens dependent on the need and not have to keep going to the optician to keep changing lenses.

Firmoo Glasses 

Firmoo was the first eye-glass shop I collaborated with and I remember how happy and excited I was to be collaborating. I was very overwhelmed with the choice of glasses when I visited the Firmoo website. Firmoo has a huge selection of glasses which are very stylish, affordable and cheek. I think they have glasses and frames for everyone. You can also choose prescription or non-prescription glasses or just the frames. They come in different sizes and they deliver internationally but please check the website to see if your country is there.

And there you have it, 5 brands you can use when shopping for glasses online. Once you get that prescription from your optician, you can pick your favourite designer frames.

Have you ever heard or bought from these brands?

    Not many people have but that’s slowly changing

  2. January 28, 2017 / 9:08 am

    Very glad to hear that testimony

  3. January 28, 2017 / 8:58 am

    Thanks Beth, I think once you get tested and try out a few in store you then have more confidence buying what you like both on and offline

  4. January 25, 2017 / 2:15 pm

    I’ve never thought to look online but then again the last pair I bought I never used x

    • January 28, 2017 / 9:14 am

      Ah right lol

  5. January 23, 2017 / 7:22 am

    I would never think to shop for glasses online as I like to try them on to see if they suit me. Great idea!

    • January 28, 2017 / 9:14 am

      It’s definitely a new concept for many

    this looks like an amazing company, thanks for bringing it to my attention, CheapASS what a name x

    • January 28, 2017 / 9:13 am

      Hahaha I know right and you’re welcome

    Looks like a great company. Now if they could ship in the U.S. we could use them. My hubs wears bi-focals and they cost a fortune.

    • January 28, 2017 / 9:13 am

      Some of these companies ship worldwide so you’re covered Hun

    I have just taken my teen to get her eyes tested and she needs glasses it would have been great to be able to shop online

    • January 28, 2017 / 9:12 am

      You should definitely check these shops out once you get your prescription

    I have a couple of pairs of glasses from online and I love them! One pair is from Firmoo!

    • January 28, 2017 / 9:12 am

      Firmoo is just the best isn’t it

  10. January 22, 2017 / 5:32 pm

    I love getting glasses online and have used Firmoo before. I am interested in trying the others now too!

    • January 28, 2017 / 9:12 am

      Firmoo has been great to me and many others and glad to introduce new companies too

    • January 31, 2017 / 5:34 pm

      I will be looking for some new ones soon! x

    • January 28, 2017 / 9:11 am

      We used to buy on high street but rarely do now

    I dont wear glasses so I’ve never heard of any of these before, my hubby dies though and i didn’t know you could shop online for them, so much more choice!

    • January 28, 2017 / 9:11 am

      There is so much choice these days and the beauty about these companies is that it’s not just for those who wear glasses but those who need sunglasses too

  12. January 21, 2017 / 1:39 pm

    I bought eyewash from lenskart .That was pretty good.This I haven’t tried. Will check it out.

    • January 28, 2017 / 9:10 am

      Oh cool, you should for sure

  13. Annie Brooks
    January 21, 2017 / 8:26 am

    Never heard/tried this brand before. You can get some super cheap copies from all over the internet… question is how long will they actually last?

    • January 28, 2017 / 9:09 am

      That’s the question indeed, mine have last 2-3 years and counting

    The ‘perfect’ glasses are my favourite! I’m so lucky here in China that prescription glasses are SO cheap so I plan to stock up on them before I eave! x

    • January 28, 2017 / 9:09 am

      Oh wow that’s awesome, here they are all reasonably priced

  15. January 20, 2017 / 10:49 pm

    No, I haven’t heard of these brands at all, but they look great and really good prices too. I love stocking up on sunnies and I wear glasses too.

    • January 28, 2017 / 9:08 am

      I love stocking up on sunnies too

    I don’t wear glasses, but find glasses to be the one thing i’d prefer to go to an optician etc, and get general advice. Just me though! x,

    • January 28, 2017 / 9:08 am

      Oh absolutely this post is not about replacing the optician quite the opposite as you would need them first to tell you have lens you need then using that information you can then utilise the online resources

    My husband really needs some new glasses so thanks for some great tips!

      You’re most welcome

    This looks really convenient! I haven’t had my eyes checked out in quite some time. Maybe I should do that sometime soon…..

    • January 28, 2017 / 9:06 am

      Oh you should for sure. I have to too and see what glasses I need

  19. January 20, 2017 / 8:43 pm

    These look like awesome glasses. I’ve bought some online before and was happy. I’ve used Firmoo!

    • January 28, 2017 / 9:06 am

      Thanks and yes firmoo glasses are really awesome

  20. Ola Broom
    January 20, 2017 / 7:31 pm

    Thanks for this post. I’ve been thinking about using Firmoo for a while now. They have great prices! What did you think of the quality?

    • January 28, 2017 / 9:06 am

      You’re most welcome and the quality is second to none, I have had them for 2-3 years now as they still just as good

  21. January 20, 2017 / 7:05 pm

    Your collection of specs/ sunglasses are very nice. Looks like you have tried many brands.

    • January 28, 2017 / 9:05 am

      I sure have and can’t recommend them enough

  22. Mama Owl
    January 20, 2017 / 4:57 pm

    I’ve only ever bought glasses from my opticians after my eye tests. I’d consider buying some online if I found a style I liked though.

    • January 28, 2017 / 9:05 am

      That’s reasonable decision for sure

  23. LC @ A Life of Authenticity
    January 20, 2017 / 4:36 pm

    I’ve never bought glasses on line, but your post has helped me to reconsider that. I’m still a bit nervous because I like seeing what I look like in glasses and the touch and feel of the glasses. You do miss that tangible aspect of shopping when you go online.

    • January 28, 2017 / 9:04 am

      Oh absolutely and I think it should continue. You can buy your first pair in person and try different ones. Once you know which style is your favourite you can use that as your basis for buying online

    These glasses look great. I don’t wear mine a lot as i wear contacts x

    • January 28, 2017 / 9:03 am

      These are awesome brands for sure

  25. Carmen Hensley

    I usually buy my glasses from Zenni online! So much easier to buy online

    • January 28, 2017 / 9:03 am

      It sure is, I am not familiar with Zenni but will check them out

  26. January 20, 2017 / 3:18 pm

    I have thought a few times about buying glasses online as I have heard from others who do and really love it, but I have yet to give it a try. I really like being able to try on before I make a decision. The brands you have featured have some beautiful options though x

    • January 28, 2017 / 9:02 am

      It’s understandable but technology has come a long way now and you can just upload a recent picture and use that as your basis for choosing which glasses will fit you best

  27. Alicja(Architect of free time)
    January 20, 2017 / 3:09 pm

    I only buy glasses online, i hate all this trying and waiting. Love your pair from Firmoo.
    However, i’ve never heard about any of the brands you’ve mentioned.

    • January 28, 2017 / 9:01 am

      I am the same, don’t like waiting around

  28. January 20, 2017 / 3:05 pm

    Some really great brands there and the glasses look lovely, my issue is I like trying loads of things on before making decisions with glasses x

    • January 28, 2017 / 9:01 am

      That’s a good way to do it or you could upload your latest picture and that can give you an idea of how they will look on you

    Thanks for sharing these glasses online stores! I have two prescription glasses: 1 i bought from Zac Posen, and the other is from GlassesShop itself! Luxury meets practicality 🙂

    • January 28, 2017 / 8:59 am

      That’s the best description for these companies “luxury meets practicality”

  30. Donna
    January 20, 2017 / 2:17 pm

    Good tips! I always feel I need to try before I buy but never have enough time!

    • January 28, 2017 / 8:59 am

      And that’s what buying online eliminates. For most of these you can’t upload a recent picture to their site and see how it will look on your face

  31. January 20, 2017 / 12:49 pm

    I have to wear glasses and keep thinking I should head online for my next pair x

    • January 28, 2017 / 8:57 am

      You should for sure as there are many options these days

    I don’t wear glasses however I do love sunglasses. I was not really aware of these online shops and will definitely be checking them out now, thank you for sharing!

    • January 25, 2017 / 8:15 am

      You’re most welcome, I don’t normally wear glasses either but sunglasses are a must
