Get an updated prescription

The standard validity of a prescription for an adult is two years and for youngsters, it is one year. If the prescription is outdated, it only makes sense to get your eyesight examined by an optician and get an updated prescription before you start looking for a pair of eyeglasses

Know your PD

PD is the abbreviation for Pupillary Distance, which is the distance between the pupils. It is usually measured in millimeters and it typically ranges from 48mm to 54mm. Don’t try to measure the PD yourself, it is almost impossible to get it right and is best advised to get it measured by the optician. As the optician to mention this number in your prescription letter; you would need it while buying eyeglasses online

Choose the right frame

The secret to finding the perfect pair of prescription eyeglasses online is to know your frame size and type. The online stores offer a huge selection of frames in different sizes, colors, and shapes. If you have a heart shaped for diamond shaped face type with a large forehead, you can choose a round frame with a wide top to create a nice contrast. For people with an oval shaped face, a pair of symmetrical will look good. 

Avoid the Add-ons

The online eyeglass store would tempt you to opt for various add-ons such as anti-scratch and anti-reflective coating, these add-ons only increase the price of the glasses and you may not necessarily need them. Know exactly what you need and compare the prices of the exact same glass at a couple of different online stores, some retailers offer the add-ons for free and others don’t. 

Read the return policy

Before making the final purchase, make sure that you read the return policy. If you don’t like the glass or if you find that it is not the right fit for you, you must be able to exchange it without any hassles.
