Buy Glasses Online Zenni

Shopping for glasses from home can save you cash, too. Since having digital storefronts allows retailers to cut out the middlemen (like brick-and-mortar shops and third-party manufacturers) those savings are passed on to you. Furthermore, many online glasses companies also accept HSA and FSA funds, meaning no out-of-pocket costs for you.

Frames with non-prescription lenses are $50 while the rest range from $90 to $290 with single-vision (or reader or non-prescriptive) lenses included. Progressives tack on an extra $120 and special tints and transitional lenses are also an extra $120. For those wanting blue light blocking lenses, they cost either $30 or $60, depending on the type: Screen Daily Use lenses block 25% of blue light and Screen Heavy Use block 40%. And a final heads up for ordering: Unlike some other online glasses retailers, the field to add your prescription pops up after you place your order.

We spent hours researching popular eyewear companies and what they offer in terms of selection, value, insurance eligibility, return policy and turnaround time. We also thoroughly browsed each site to test out the user-friendliness of the glasses-buying process and discover special features like virtual or at-home try-ons and prescription renewals. Finally, we included firsthand recommendations from Forbes Vetted staffers like GlassesUSA, Zenni Optical and Warby Parker.

After additional testing, including ordering glasses with single-vision and photochromic prescription lenses, we still think Eyebuydirect and Zenni Optical are the best online glasses retailers for most people.

People who want to use certain vision insurance benefits without having to file a claim after purchase, or folks who want the option to buy or get frames fitted (or adjusted) in a store, may prefer ordering from Lenscrafters or Target Optical, which also offer online-only ordering.

Depending on your needs and preferences, you can save hundreds of dollars by buying prescription eyeglasses online instead of through an optician. After performing more than 120 hours of research over four years, talking to eight eye-care professionals, and testing dozens of comparable frame-and-lens pairings from 12 retailers since 2017, we recommend that you start your online glasses search at Eyebuydirect. It offers an extensive, easy-to-search selection of quality frames, multiple lens and coating options, and affordable prices when compared with the prominent competition.

To make the strongest possible direct comparisons across brands, we had each tester choose near-identical frames and lenses from each retailer. Of course, there were some slight differences in styles based on the options each retailer offered at the time of our testing. For example, some of the wire-framed glasses that Tester 1 ordered were a slightly different shape than others. The anti-glare and hydrophobic coatings we ordered differed slightly from pair to pair, depending upon retailer offerings and costs.

When we ordered my glasses (metal-and-plastic frames filled with comparatively stronger Rx lenses), we found that two retailers, Eyebuydirect and GlassesUSA, required that we order more-expensive lenses based on the prescription (costing an extra $79 and $70, respectively). Firmoo and Zenni allowed us to order basic lenses, with the option to upgrade.

Wondering what happens to returned spectacles? We asked each of the retailers we tested what they did with unwanted prescription glasses. Liingo said it reuses returned frames for its in-home try-on services, as well as donates glasses to various organizations. Eyebuydirect, Firmoo, GlassesUSA, and Warby Parker all said they partner with charities to distribute glasses to those in need. Zenni donates them to Lions Clubs International.

Orders over $119 ship for free (orders costing less incur a $6 shipping charge). Eyebuydirect says glasses can take one to two weeks to produce and mail, but all of our test pairs arrived within seven days of ordering, save for the more-complicated progressives, which arrived within the promised two weeks.

Eyebuydirect offers two-day delivery on single-vision prescription glasses in more than 300 frame options, for an additional fee of $19 (though you can usually pay less with a coupon code). We tried this service and were pleasantly surprised to receive our order within 33 hours of placing it.

In 2020, we ordered the exact same glasses that we ordered in 2019 to evaluate consistency. We were pleasantly surprised to note that not only was the prescription perfect, but the glasses were also slightly less expensive the second time around, thanks to the recent uptick in Zenni coupon codes.

Likewise, if the temple arms are too long for you, the glasses can slip forward and off your face or dig in behind your ears, an issue that can sometimes be mitigated with an in-person fitting with a professional (for which Liingo, one of our picks, offers a $25 credit; Eyeconic offers this service for free).

Lensabl says it can put Rx lenses in any frames for these flat rates. To test this claim, I bought an $8 pair of foldable reading glasses (currently unavailable). Within two weeks of sending the frames and prescription to Lensabl, I had a pair of perfectly prescribed folding eyeglasses for less than $100.

During the initial 30-day period, broken frames can be replaced at no charge. Additionally, while replacement nose pads and nose pad screws for rimless frames are offered for the life of the glasses, Zenni does not offer repair services.

Caring for your eyes is an important aspect of overall health. Older adults are at increased risk for age-related eye conditions like cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic eye disease1 Those with poor vision can also experience falls and mobility issues. In fact, a study of 1,500 older adults found that impaired vision was an independent risk factor for both recurring falls and fractures.2 The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) notes that impaired vision more than doubles the risk of experiencing a fall for Americans 65 and older.3 Thankfully, seeing clearly can sometimes be as simple as getting a new prescription and ordering a new pair of glasses.

Of all of our recommendations for online glasses, Eyebuydirect offers the fastest shipping option for those who need their glasses in a hurry. Select in-stock frames are available for two-day shipping through UPS for $19. After Eyebuydirect verifies your prescription, you can get seven to 14 day shipping for $5.95 via USPS. If you spend more than $119, shipping is free.

Just like GlassesUSA, Eyebuydirect offers an online quiz to help with frame selection. It offers a live try-on feature as well as the option to upload a still photo to see how your glasses will look on you.

Eyebuydirect offers frames that start at $6, and all frames include basic single-vision lenses for prescriptions with an SPH correction (a measurement of how far or nearsighted you are) of +/- 2.25 and below, or a CYL correction (a measurement of astigmatism) of +/- 1.50 and below. If you require a stronger prescription, your lenses cost extra. All glasses come with a one-year warranty against manufacturer defects and a 14-day trial period.

Eyebuydirect has a rating of 4.33 out of 5 stars from an average of 780 reviews on BBB. It has 4.4 out of 5 stars from an average of 19,000 reviews on Trustpilot. Customers mention low prices and excellent customer service in their positive reviews, while negative reviews mention problems submitting payment information when ordering, glasses that break, and difficulty reaching someone who could answer their questions.

Warby Parker lets you choose five frames to try on at home for five days before you send them back for free. This is a great feature for those who prefer to physically try glasses on before they buy them. You can also virtually try on frames, and the site offers a quiz to help you select your frames.

If your prescription expired, you may be able to renew it online for $15 with its Virtual Vision Test iPhone app. If you think your prescription has changed, you can use its MyVisionDirectory to book a comprehensive eye exam at a Warby Parker store in your area starting at $85. If you have a valid prescription, you can upload a photo of it during the checkout process or ask Warby Parker to contact your optometrist for you to get your most recent prescription. You can also choose to send it to Warby Parker after you place your order, in which case you will receive an email with instructions for how to do so.

Warby Parker offers a six-month no-scratch guarantee and will replace any scratched pair of glasses for free during this period. It contributes charitably with its Buy a Pair, Give a Pair program that partners with nonprofits worldwide to provide affordable or free eye exams and glasses to those in need. 041b061a72
