I have purchased glasses for my family online. These glasses are very cheap when compared to the brick and mortar stores, but it is quite difficult to find glasses that fit. Therefore, I will list the things that one should look for when purchasing glasses from Clearly Contacts.
- Spring hinges on arms
- Nose piece or no nose piece
- Purchase 2 or 3 pairs
Glasses come in many forms, but the arm can be a problem when it hugs too tightly on the side of the face. Therefore, for those with larger faces, an arm that can bend outwards maybe required. These glasses have spring hinges that allow the arm to bend outwards.
Some glasses have a nose piece. It seems that the additional nose piece is designed for Asian noses. Caucasian noses usually are designed without the nose piece. Therefore, visit an eyeglass store to see what kind of glasses they recommend. One may find that one may fit great while the other does not.
All glasses come with a 30 day guarantee. Therefore, purchase 2 or 3 pairs. This will allow one to see if one fits better than another. One may find that the pair wanted will not fit properly, and the glasses are usually one size fit all.
Unfortunately, the buyer is responsible for the shipping cost, but that is the cost of purchasing online. Do not forget to purchase insurance on the package sent. Although the lost item maybe claimable through the credit card company, I like the peace of mind of purchasing insurance.
