Want to experience eyewear shopping from the comfort of your couch? We’ve got you covered! With the right approach, shopping for eyewear online can be a convenient and cost-effective way to find your forever frames. You can enjoy a hassle-free shopping experience and get the best eyewear for your lifestyle, visual needs and style preferences. Read on for a comprehensive 101 on how to shop for eyewear online.

1. Determine Your Prescription: 

Prior to purchasing eyewear online, it's important to get your eyes tested! This helps in creating awareness about your specific visual needs. An eye exam conducted once a year, by a qualified optometrist ensures that you have an up-to-date prescription and that your eyes are in a healthy condition. Without this crucial check, there's a risk of purchasing glasses with an incorrect prescription or overlooking special needs like astigmatism or bifocal lenses.

The good news? You can step into any John Jacobs store near you for a no-strings-attached, free eye-exam conducted by qualified professionals! Visit today.

2. Find The Eyedeal Size:

Eyewear that is too large can slip down your nose, while glasses that are too small can create pressure points behind your ears and on your nose. Finding your right eyewear size before picking your frame is a significant step, because if the glasses do not fit properly, they can negatively impact the clarity and effectiveness of your vision. 

Want to know more? We’ve put down a comprehensive size guide, to help you effectively measure yourself and choose the best dimensions.

3. Pick The Correct Lenses:

When shopping for eyewear online, you'll be presented with a range of lens options, including single-vision lenses, bifocal lenses, progressive and high-index lens types. These options offer various benefits, such as reducing eye strain, enhancing color perception, or adapting to different lighting conditions. It's important to consider your lifestyle and specific requirements when selecting the appropriate lens options.
