So you’ve already heard about the fascinating things that the internet could offer to us in terms of buying spectacles. I can quite think that your mates are already telling you to buy spectacles online because of cheaper prices, am I right?
Now let me ask you, do you know how to buy spectacles online? You are lucky to find this post on the internet because I will show how to buy spectacles online using simple and easy steps.
Before making your first online purchase of spectacles, you need to have your latest optical prescription from your yearly eye examination. If you haven’t got that, visit your optometrist to know the present status of your vision. Your prescription holds essential details that you are going to need if you plan to buy glasses online. These figures will serve as guides to various opticians in making your spectacles.
In this article, I will mainly focus on how you could buy glasses online in UK. I recently ordered my latest prescription specs in OptiShop (associated with Optical Mail Order Ltd.), an internet retailer in the UK. I was glad how they accommodate my order and I would highly recommend OptiShop to you.
First, open your browser and then type in the website address http://www.opticalmailorder.co.uk in the address bar.
At the left pane, you could see lots of options; pick whatever you like. For the sake of demonstration, let me teach you how to purchase designer specs because that was the thing I last purchased from OptiShop.
Find the Order Designer Frames tab and click it. Upon clicking, you will see varieties of designer spectacles. Each style has its description that include lens size, nose bridge, and side length. Images are also shown, depicting the actual style of the specs. You will also be notified on the available colors for each style.
At the button of each style, you will also be asked whether you are using single or bifocal lens. Refer to your optical prescription on what type of lens you are going to use. For me, I have chosen Single Vision. After you have made your choice, click on either the Single Vision or Bifocal button at the bottom of the selected style.
You will be directed to another page, which will require you to input important numbers from your optical prescription. Get hold of your optical prescription then from the drop down menu, select the exact values. Please be careful in selecting the values as the future of your eyesight depends on it. Likewise, you need to specify the purpose of your spectacles and then the pupillary distance.
If ever your values are not in the drop down menu, OptiShop recommends you to reach them. You don’t have to worry because you can contact them either by phone or email.
In addition, consumers are also given the option to add addition enhancements to their glasses. Options include the frame color, protective hard coating, photo chromatic or tint, anti reflective coating.
Read first the terms and agreements in the purchase by clicking the button TERMS at the bottom right of the order page.
After you agree with the TERMS, input the number of spectacles you wish to buy and then hit the Add to Basket Button.
Review what you have purchased and then click Checkout afterwards.
At the next page, enter your name, address, and other personal information. Be sure you are indicating the exact address because it will be needed in the delivery of the item. Again, review the details you have entered and click Next afterwards.
Select the payment method and your order is not on the process. The store will send you notice about the date of the delivery. The date of delivery concerns your location and the design of specs you ordered.
