Ordering Glasses Online From Our Optometrist

Before ordering eyewear online, you’ll need a few things from your optometrist: a current eye prescription, your pupillary distance, and your insurance information if you have coverage. Follow these steps:

1. Choose Your Frames: This is likely the most challenging decision during the process. Take your time before placing an order.

2. Have Your Prescription Ready: Enter key information from your current prescription (within the last year) when ordering, including an eye care provider, script #, and other essential details.

3. Choose a Lens Type: Decide if you want impact-resistant lenses, sunglasses, bifocals, or traditional lenses. Consider any recommendations from our optical professionals.

4. Choose Your Lens Material: Common materials include plastic polycarbonate, photochromic, mirrored lenses, and night driving lenses.

5. Select Optional Lens Treatments: Explore various treatments such as transitional lenses, anti-fog coating, anti-scratch coating, anti-reflective coating, and UV protection.

6. Order Your Glasses: With this information, proceed to fill out your order.

How to Order Contact Lenses Online

With the right information and some research, obtaining contacts online becomes hassle-free. Follow these steps:

1. Get a Contact Lens Eye Exam: Similar to eyeglasses exams but with additional steps. The curvature of the eye is measured more intensely, and trial pairs are used to find a suitable brand and size.

2. Understand Your Prescription: Familiarize yourself with the measurements on the prescription, which you will need to enter when ordering online.

3. Do Some Research: Unless your eye doctor prescribes a specific brand, do some research to find lenses that meet your vision needs, considering factors like dry eyes or presbyopia.

4. Place Your Order: Enter your prescription information, measurements, and lens preferences. Press "place order," and your lenses will be on their way.
