Accurate Measurements

When you are shopping for glasses online, it is important to make sure that you have accurate measurements of your face. This includes the size of your face, the bridge of your nose, and the distance between your eyes. This will ensure that the prescription glasses you purchase will fit properly and be comfortable to wear.

Materials of the Glasses

Certain prescription glasses require a specific material. Many glasses are made from plastic or metal and different materials will provide individual levels of durability, comfort, and style.
