Over the past few years, more and more people have been looking to buy glasses online. Who can blame them? Sometimes people want choice, of which there’s often a lack with in-person shopping at small eyewear stores. There’s a world of options out there on the internet, and there’s no better place to explore them than SmartBuyGlasses. One of the downsides to buying eyeglasses online, however, is that you can’t try them on and see how they look on you. Luckily, we’ve come up with a solution. It’s called Virtual Try-On. With this groundbreaking, easy-to-use technology, you can quickly and accurately see how some of our most popular styles look on your face. From Tom Ford to SmartBuy Collection, Ray-Ban to Arise Collective, the sheer amount of Virtual Try-On glasses available at SmartBuyGlasses today is unparalleled.
Before we show you our favourite Virtual Try-On glasses, we thought it would be best to answer a couple of your most burning questions.
How Does Virtual Try-On Glasses Work?
Our technology, powered by Ditto, captures a precise virtual map of your face and your personal style preferences to help you model the world’s leading brands from the comfort of your home. Using the virtual map of your face and 3D models of some of our best-selling glasses, the software overlays your selfie video with your chosen eyewear to transform your home into a virtual fashion studio at the click of a button.
It’s really, really simple – so we’ve condensed the process to two simple steps.
- RECORD YOUR SELFIE VIDEO – We’ll walk you through a simple process and show you how to use your desktop or mobile camera to record a quick, five-second selfie video. Basically, you turn your head from side to side and then hold up any card from their wallet to their forehead to add accurate scale.
