I have endeavored to make the most of “Quarantine Life” and it’s involved a little (ok, a lot of) online shopping. In addition to my growing collection of leisure wear, I have amassed quite the collection of glasses and sunglasses during this time. I recently bought some glasses online from SmartBuyGlasses and had a great experience. (Tip: scroll to the bottom of the site to select your country.)
It has become increasingly convenient to get glasses online — now with the onset of Covid and big worries about germs. SmartBuyGlasses is a shopper’s paradise with a huge selection and a multitude of ways to narrow your search field. Additionally, they guarantee the best price — if you see the same frames on another site for less, they will absolutely refund the difference.
What really made the difference in shopping with them was the support from their optician. After I placed my order she emailed me, asking me some questions about my prescription. She was kind, helpful and prompt; she helped me understand what “lens index” means and why it matters. I appreciated that they went the extra mile for me. In all, it took much less time than going in for an appointment with my Optometrist.
The last thing that may have held me back from buying glasses online was the try-on experience, but who wants to go into a store right now and put a bunch of glasses on their face? I was very happy using SBG’s virtual try-on tool which helps you accurately see how new glasses would look on. It’s easy to take a selfie video on their website, which then tells you your face shape and suggests the kind of frames that would flatter the most.
One more product reco if you’re not on this train yet — get some Blue Light glasses. We’re all sitting in front of screens more than ever these days and I promise it will save you some literal headaches. It’s also been a strategic way to calm my eyes and brain down a couple hours before I need to go to sleep — did you know that too much blue light blocks melatonin production? That’s the hormone that helps us go to sleep. (Note: You don’t have to have a prescription to get a pair.)
Stay tuned for selfies of me in my new pair once they arrive!
