If everything from clothes to groceries can be purchased online, why not eyewear and contact lenses? And if you are buying eyewear online, what should you look out for? Read on for my take on online shopping for eyewear…
I have a new pair of Dior sunglasses from Glasses Online. Needless to say, I love the color and the design of the frame (‘cos I picked it out myself) and I must say it was worth the wait. Sure, there are some items which are tagged “Fast Shipping” so you can receive your purchase in about 7 working days’ time but this particular pair took slightly longer to reach me.
From this online shopping experience alone, I’ve found three benefits when it comes to buying sunglasses online:
- Price Comparisons – You can search for the same item on different sites (please check that their products are authentic and backed up with a guarantee) and ensure you are getting the lowest price for whichever pair you fancy.
- Shop According to Face Shape, Frame Shape, Color, Budget and Brand – You save a lot of time as you can filter search results to show you only those frames which go well with your face shape, and are in your favorite color, desired brand, and within your budget.
- Pay Using PayPal – one reason why I love shopping online! :)
What are the cons of shopping online? You might experience one or more of these: long waiting time for some items, payment of GST if it’s a pricey item shipped in from overseas, product defects or “surface imperfections” (a term made popular by HDB. Ha!), a troublesome returns process, etc.
Why shop with Glasses Online though?
The site offers many benefits – Free Delivery, Free 30 Days Return, 12 Month Warranty, 100% Authentic Products – so you might want to check it out for your next purchase of contact lenses, glasses or sunglasses. :)
The company is expanding rapidly, having opened an office in Berlin this year as well as new websites for Germany, Netherlands, UK and Denmark! So you can shop with confidence with them.
This time, I’ve picked this Dior pair because of its unique two-tone frame – white outside and blue inside. I really like its understated elegance. :)
And here are two other pairs of sunglasses that I’ve been eyeing (hur hur) [*Pic credit: GlassesOnline]

A bit of sparkle and a touch of kawaii. *wink*
& Happy Shopping!
