When looking for a new pair of glasses, it’s important to keep in mind the quality of the product you’re buying. Eye and vision health is important and can be compromised by choosing cheap eyeglasses, especially when purchased online.
High-quality eyeglasses use the latest technology to manufacture lenses and use superior materials in their frames resulting in the best vision correction. Cheap eyeglasses usually have to cut corners to keep prices low, compromising frame and lens integrity. You could end up with inferior or incorrect lenses. You also run the risk of buying glasses that only last a short time before breaking.
Another danger of cheap eyeglasses, especially online orders, is that you’re purchasing something that should be dispensed by a licensed professional. It’s imperative that you’re always using an updated prescription and that your pupillary distance (PD) is properly measured to correctly manufacture lenses. Trying to take a PD measurement at home can easily lead to mistakes which can cause a range of issues.
Since frames fit differently on every person, it’s not uncommon to have to make adjustments upon receiving your glasses. A benefit to purchasing glasses from a brick-and-mortar location is that you have access to an optician that has the ability to make adjustments to ensure optimal comfort.
Glasses are an investment for your health and wellbeing and you should not settle for cheap eyeglasses. Trust your eye and vision health to professionals that have the knowledge, training and certification to dispense and adjust your glasses.
