5 reasons to buy prescription glasses online

We got used to booking a taxi with Uber, pay with a card online, and it takes only 30 minutes to have fresh pizza since our last click in a mobile app. The year 2020 took many of us to online meetings with colleagues for the first time, and we became quite familiar also with home delivery. You can have some doubts when it comes to shopping for eyewear online but read at least these 5 reasons to get a better perspective. They may convince you:

Buying glasses online is more than 50% cheaper

Just compare it on your own. Online you can buy glasses for half the price of the same glasses in a physical store. When it comes to prescription glasses with lenses, the difference is even bigger. This has a reason: In a physical store, the price of glasses must also include the cost of renting premises in the city center, energy, distributor, more employees, etc.

Buying glasses online is more than 50% cheaper

We sell hundreds of glasses a day in 15 countries so we have direct relationships with manufacturers and world-famous brands. Because of big volumes, we have big discounts. Besides that, we don’t need any middlemen and you don’t have to pay them either. Everything stays just between us, which also makes things faster.

It is simple

The best thing about online shopping is that you don't have to leave a house, you don't wait anywhere in line and a courier will bring them to your door for free. The topic of glasses often seems unnecessarily complicated. Myopia, cylinder, astigmatism… Our new configurator will accompany you throughout the purchase and explain all technicalities. If you have a problem filling in your prescription, just send it to us and we will take care of everything.
