Ten Tips to Improve Your Eyesight
How to Choose Sunglasses
Buying prescription eyeglasses online starts with choosing your frames. This is the most time-consuming part of the process, as it involves your personal preference. If you already chose a frame then you can continue to the next step. If you don't have a frame in mind, choosing your frames is made easier when you keep the following things in mind:
You should know that different features in glasses will look flattering on your face. Certain frame shapes will compliment your features, while others may emphasize the wrong attributes. You can usually predict the best frames for your face using your face shape.
A narrow frame will tend to make your face look wider, while a wide frame will make your face look narrower. It is generally best to find a pair of frames that fits you well.If you have an old pair of glasses, this will be fairly easy as all frames come with measurements one the temple arm.
While you choose the frame color the last, it can be one of the most important things in determining the style and overall look of your new eyewear. Most frames come in several colors so you will never feel trapped in choosing one color on a frame you love.
Filter your frames with our tab that lets you choose based on color, shape, material, and features.
Once you have selected the types of frames and lenses you want in your glasses, the next step is customizing your frames and lenses to your unique specifications with your prescription. You must either enter in the values for each eye or upload your prescription directly. You must also add a PD (Pupil Distance) measurement to each description.
The quality and features of your lenses contribute most to your satisfaction with your glasses. You should pay close attention to the options available to you. Some of the things to keep in mind when placing an order for RX glasses include:
The most important part of choosing your lenses is selecting the right ones for your visual needs. Depending on your eyes and your personal needs, you may require single-vision or multi-focal lenses, as prescribed by your optometrist. You can choose from bifocals or digital progressive lenses for multi-focal lenses.
Once you have determined the right lenses for your needs, the next step is choosing the right kinds of coatings for your lifestyle. Anti-scratch, anti-reflection, blue light blocking for computer use, and tints with UV protective coatings for sunglasses like mirrored or polarized lenses are some of the many of the options available to you to protect your eyes and your glasses from different elements as well as daily wear and tear.
Once you have everything selected and input, double-check all of the values one more time to ensure you are ordering the correct frame, lenses, coatings, etc. Once you are sure of your order, you can enter your payment information in the secure TimetoShade.com checkout portal.
We take care of everything beyond that point. With those simple steps, you will have a new pair of fashionable glasses shipped to your doorstep!
