Online Shopping Tools
To make it as easy as possible to buy glasses online, we have a few tricks up our sleeve. Our favourite is the Virtual Try-On tool. All you have to do is take a quick selfie video and you can try on different frames. This gives you an accurate representation of how the frames would look on you in real life. The feature also alerts you to your face shape and which style would suit you as a consequence. For example, someone with a rounded face would not be recommended rounded glasses. The idea is to contrast your natural features with the design of the frame to create a sense of balance.
The other valuable resource available at SmartBuyGlasses is the Optical Centre. This holds loads of useful articles about all things eyecare and health. You can find professional advice about a whole host of issues and even the occasional style tip! The articles are easy to read, but if there is something not covered, don’t hesitate to contact our online opticians. You can ask them a question at any time of the day or night and receive personalised help at any stage of the buy glasses online process.
When you buy sunglasses online you don’t just get what you’re given, you have the opportunity to customise the order to your prescription and preferences. You can add your vision correction details at the checkout and receive prescription sunglasses ready to wear through the post.
There is also the possibility to add Transition lenses for a photochromic effect. The lens technology is incredibly advanced, with molecules reacting rapidly to exposure to UV rays and darkening or clearing the lenses as appropriate. These are particularly popular among those who spend a lot of time outside and don’t want to have separate pairs of prescription glasses and sunglasses.
You can also choose to have the lenses polarized with an optional coating. This is a very affordable option and will protect you from glare caused by the sun’s reflected rays. It is particularly popular among cyclists, runners, snow sports enthusiasts and water sport participants.
