When buying new glasses online, you need to take a few considerations into account. Several factors, including frame color, model, designer, and material, can largely be dictated by personal preferences. Others, such as frame width and size of your lenses, are determined by your prescription, pupillary distance measurement (PMD), and face shape.
Finding the right prescription glasses begins with understanding your prescription. It’s important to know what your glasses are needed for, (e.g., to assist with distance vision or reading glasses), and when you are required to wear your eyeglasses, (e.g., all day or periodically). This information will help you make informed aesthetic decisions on the most appropriate brand, style, size, fit, shape, lenses, and material (and subsequent weight) of your glasses.
Hot tip: If you’re uncertain or have any eyewear or prescription-related questions while you shop, you can ask one of our friendly local optometrist partners online via the pop-up chat window on the bottom right of our website. We’ve also got a handy guide to face shapes ready to reference!
Our huge collection of designer glasses and lenses is carefully curated and can be filtered by category in our shop, allowing you to easily tailor your prescription glasses search results by things like clear glasses, blue light glasses, men’s sunglasses, and women’s sunglasses, as well as face shape, brand/designer, color, size, fit and material. You can even choose opt for prescription sunglasses.
When you see a frame or look that captures your eye, you can try them using our amazing Virtual Try-On tool. This lets you see how a particular pair of fashion glasses or lens style looks on your face shape before you order so that you can shop for eyeglasses with confidence.

Thanks to the support of our customers, we’ve donated over $1M retail value worth of optical eyeglasses and are working hard to help eradicate preventable blindness across the globe.

When you place your prescription eyeglasses order, we’ll first check if we have your chosen frames in stock at our secure local warehouse. If we don’t, we’ll source a pair from one of our global partners.
Once we have your frames, your order will progress to the customization stage where your prescription lenses will be manufactured according to your preferences, like multifocal lenses and add-ons like polarized lenses, and they will be added to your chosen frames. If your order is for clear, untreated lenses, your frames will skip this stage and ship out straight away.
All brands and models can be shipped to international and APO/FPO addresses. Generally, international deliveries take the same amount of time as domestic deliveries. Once your order has left our warehouse with one of our courier partners, you’ll receive full tracking details and can expect delivery of your brand new prescription glasses within 5 to 8 working days.
