We can probably all say that, especially over the last eighteen months, we have shopped more and more online. We may not always like it but the fact is, the convenience has won us over. Online shopping in itself can be a great thing, but when it comes to buying glasses, your eyes really do deserve more than just a cheap purchase that arrives through the post. |
Eyewear is such an individual thing and buying glasses is not just about your prescription and a frame you quite fancy. Having your glasses fitted by experts is key to your comfort, which is why you should definitely choose your local optician over online purchasing. When it comes to what your local optician can offer you, it really is no contest.
There is no substitute for face to face customer service. That one to one interaction with someone can make all the difference between buying a good or a bad pair of glasses. Your highstreet opticians have teams of experts on hand who are experienced in reading their customers and discerning what frames will suit them best. They will talk to you about your lifestyle and what you want your glasses for, and take you through the whole process of choosing a design. Of course, optical stylists stay up to date with the latest fashion trends too, so they can guide you towards the look you’re trying to achieve.
There is no way that scrolling through endless frames on the internet, hoping to get an idea of how different ones might fit your face, comes close to having the individual service you get from a real person.

Online shopping can seem like a quick and easy option, but in reality delays often occur. There’s no guarantee that the frames will be as they looked on the website and no guarantee that they will fit. Consequently, there can be a lot of returning and re-ordering. When you visit your local optician, all it takes is one trip. You can try everything on and get a real feel for what’s comfortable and what suits your face and lifestyle.
Optical shops on the internet boast a huge selection of frames from all kinds of brands, but many are inexpensively created for the online market. For reassurance that the brand you are purchasing is what it says, a local optician is the best option. A reputable independent business will want to offer honesty and quality when it comes to the brands it stocks.
You may love a particular frame but it just doesn’t feel right on your face; this is where the experts in an optical shop come into their own as they may be able to make the necessary adjustments so that your favourite frame does fit comfortably. Custom frame and lens fitting has to be done in person if it is to be done right.
Your eyes are precious and if you want to take good care of them and wear frames and lenses that are 100% guaranteed in terms of comfort and quality, then it is a no brainer. A local optician is best every time!
