We Tried Ordering A Wedding Dress Online — Here's How It Turned Out
I Bought Super-Cheap Prescription Glasses Online—Here's What Happened
Like most people, I've bought tons of random things online—swim caps, fitness watches, combination locks, lots of food, and even a new mattress. But one thing I've never been able to order and have shipped to my door is prescription glasses.
My friends rave about how easy it is to buy stylish and inexpensive eyewear from Warby Parker. Problem is, Warby Parker doesn't offer progressive lenses, which correct for both nearsightedness and farsightedness. When I found out two years ago, at age 21, that I needed progressive lenses, my eye doctor triple-checked my vision because apparently my combination of interesting genetics and eye strain is pretty rare.

With the most popular online eyeglass retailer out of the question for me, I bought my first few frames at my optometrist's office, shelling out hundreds per pair, even after insurance. Last month, I found out I'd need to update my prescription again, and Ireallydid not want to take such a big hit to my bank account. After some research into other places to buy cheap glasses online, I decided to try EyeBuyDirect, which offers frames for as low as and more lens options than many other online stores.
Watch how to treat a headache without drugs:
At first, I was skeptical—how could a pair of glasses that cheap possibly be any good? But, they offered total glasses packages, progressive lenses and all, for around , and my vision insurance would reimburse me for the cost. With the cost so low—and with a 14-day, no-questions-asked return policy—I figured it couldn't hurt to try a pair.
It took me three hours of deliberation before I finally picked frames I liked. Unlike Warby Parker, which has an excellent home-try-on program, EyeBuyDirect instead has a cool feature where you can upload a picture of yourself and try glasses on virtually. My face is a bit round, so usually round glasses don’t work for me. But, the slightly rounded, leopard-patterned style somehow looked the best on my Facebook picture.
