When we initially thought of buying glasses online for our son, I just knew it would be a hassle.  But, it turns out that GlassesUSA.com makes buying glasses online very easy.  When we received Mackell’s new glasses in the mail they fit perfectly and he was very excited to put them on.

Now that I look back on the ease of ordering his first pair from GlassesUSA, and the super affordable pricing, I regret having purchased so many pairs of glasses in-store.  GlassesUSA has some great online tools that ensure you’ll be happy with your purchase.

[icon name=”fa-camera” size=”18px” color=”#ff87ab” link=””] First there’s the Virtual Mirror.  It allows buyers to take a photo of themselves and upload it to the GlassesUSA website and try on glasses from the comfort of your home.  I don’t wear glasses, but it was fun to try out the Virtual Mirror just for kicks.


[icon name=”fa-list-alt” size=”18px” color=”#ff87ab” link=””] GlassesUSA also allows users to enter their prescription online.  Once you’ve created an account, just upload your prescription and send it to the GlassesUSA team.  Or, you can just fax it.

[icon name=”fa-eye” size=”18px” color=”#ff87ab” link=””] GlassesUSA also has an awesome Virtual Optician that can help you find the right frames and the right fit, this includes videos that show buyers how to measure their pupillary distance.


Also, did I mention how affordable his glasses were.  We normally pay over $100 for a quality pair of glasses for my son, but the GlassesUSA price for his frames were just $68.  I could have purchased two frames for just $30 more than I usually pay for one.  My husband wears glasses too.  We’ve already decided to begin buying glasses online from GlassesUSA for him as well.

Overall Thoughts on Buying Glasses Online

[callout title=’5-Star Review’ text=’Buying glasses online with GlassesUSA was very easy. Glasses were affordable and prescription accuracy for my son was spot on. Shipping took 4 days and the fitting was perfect. Plus, we saved a ton of cash.’ button_text=’Buy Your Glasses Online’ button_link=’https://www.glassesusa.com/’]

In exchange for this review, my son was given a free pair of glasses from GlassesUSA.  However, the opinions here are all my own and if I’d had a bad experience, I would tell you.
