Reasons Not to Buy Eye Glasses Online

Written by our eye doctors in Chesapeake

  • You don’t get to try the glasses on or have someone help you in person.
  • It may be hard to measure your own pupil distance, which you need to order your glasses. Some experts say it’s like trying to cut your own hair.
  • It may be difficult to return the glasses.
  • A large study found about half the online glasses had the wrong prescription or other problems.
  • An incorrect prescription may give you blurred vision or make your eyes feel uncomfortable.
  • Some websites may not take insurance.
