Buying Designer Glasses Online? What To Look Out For
The online shopping market has been growing steadily over recent years, with many consumers keen to embrace the convenience that comes with having everything just a few clicks away.
This growth as accelerated recently for a variety of reasons. Predominantly, it is down to the shelter in place orders in effect throughout the USA to stop the spread of the Coronavirus.
Improved eCommerce technology and innovative online promotions have also helped to boost online sales.
While buying groceries or even clothes online might seem easy, it can be harder to purchase glasses online, particularly from designer brands.
It’s easier for retailers to defraud customers with fake products and harder for buyers to know what they’re buying.
At Jackson Davenport, we understand the consumers might want to save themselves some money by buying designer glasses online, which is why we’ve put together a guide to help you find frames that will suit your style and budget.
Make Sure Your Prescription Is Correct
Whether you’re buying your new glasses online or in a store, you need to make sure that you have the right prescription before you start your search.
To do this, you need to have a new eye test. Even if you don’t think you need one, you should invest in an eye exam before you start your search for new eyewear, so that you don’t waste your money on glasses that don’t help your vision.
For an eye exam, you should visit an optometrist. Jackson Davenport’s expert team can guide you through your eye test and provide you with an up to date prescription.
While you’re at our store, you could check out our range of glasses. We have a wide range of designer brands to choose from, including Ray-Ban, Kate Spade, Marc Jacobs, and many more.
When you book an eye exam with us, there’s no obligation to buy our glasses, but if you find that you want personal support while choosing your frames, then feel free to come back. We’re always happy to see you!
Find The Frames That Suit Your Face
Choosing a pair of glasses is about more than just their color and style. You also need to find the shape frames that suit your face.
Take the time to find out your face shape, so that you can choose glasses that accentuate your features as well as improving your eyesight.
If you want to try on glasses and talk to a specialist, then you’ll need to visit a vision center like our Summerville location. Our team can find your face shape and help you to select the perfect pair of glasses.
However, when buying online, you don’t get this support or the ability to try on your frames before you order them. As a result, you might find yourself owning a pair of glasses that look cute, but don’t suit your face.
As such, we’d only recommend that you buy your glasses online if you’re confident of the style and shape that suits you. If you’re unsure, or you want to enjoy the benefit of an expert opinion, then work with a professional eye care specialist at a vision center.
Check The Credentials Of The Seller
If you have your heart set on a pair of glasses from an online retailer, then you need to make sure that you check that they are legitimate before you spend money with them.
After all, designer glasses can cost hundreds of dollars, meaning that there is the potential for fraud, particularly when buying eyewear online.
As such, you must check that your seller is legitimate before you buy from them. Read online reviews from other buyers to check that they’ve received the products and customer service they expect.
You also need to check that they are a verified seller of the brands that they are offering. If they do not have proof on their site, then get in touch with them to ask.
At Jackson Davenport, we carry a range of brands and offer genuine products, so that you can look good and enjoy the quality you expect. It can be hard to tell if an online seller is legitimate, so if you’re not sure, do not buy from them.
Visit A Respected Eyewear Specialist
