First time buying reading glasses online? This guide is for you!

By: Admin Super

Need a new pair of reading glasses because the pair you have has got more scratches than you can count? With a new normal coming about, it’s time to get your new pair online. While navigating the internet for your perfect pair may seem daunting, we are here to help you through the process.

Head to Specscart

Yes, if you reside anywhere in the United Kingdom, Specscart is the best place to buy your reading glasses from. With fully loaded glasses from £25, Specscart should be your first choice if you’re looking for glasses worth-the-price! We also deliver our glasses to you for free and also try to dispatch most of our frames within 24-hours.

Select frames that complement your face.

Whether you’re 30 or 80, selecting frames according to face shape is necessary because you should always look your best! You can go through the plethora of guides available online. Or you could follow the easy rule-of-thumb, which is if you have a rounder face, go for frames with sharp angles because they sharpen your features. But if your face has sharp features, you should go for rounder and curvier frames. But then again the choice is yours and we offer you all we can. Yes, the Specscart filter allows you to sort frames based on frame material and shape so if you want a retro acetate frame, we’re not stopping you because we have reading glasses women and men will rock.

Also, get your prescription ready!

The National Health Service (NHS) recommends that you have at least one eye test in every two years. And if you have recently got a prescription for you reading glasses, keep it ready before you order a pair online. Most websites ask you to upload a photo of your prescription and some may ask you to manually enter it online. So, the next thing you should do is get your prescription ready.

  • What if I don’t have a prescription for reading glasses? 

That’s not a problem! If you are confident about doing a self-exam at home, you can use resources available. Most of these ask you to look at printed texts at a distance of 5-15 inches from your eyes!

But if you’re not confident about knowing the strength of reading glasses on your own, you can avail virtual optometrist consultations from Specscart.

  • What if I have to find my prescription?

Specscart provides you with an option to email your prescription after you have placed your order. So, you can easily order your favourite frames for glasses and send in the prescription later. To maximise your comfort with glasses, we don’t consider prescriptions older than two years for your reading glasses.

Know about the lens coatings!

Often, we buy reading glasses to help with reading texts at closer distances. If you use reading glasses for work, you may also have to keep the pair of readers on when you’re working on your computer. That’s why it is a great idea to get blue light protection coatings on your glasses. These blue light glasses not only help you in reading, but they also filter the harmful blue light you may be exposed to when you’re looking at the screen. Yes, blue light is harmful because it can cause digital strain and a lot of other problems.

Say goodbye to ‘squinting and reading’ because the designer frames at Specscart are waiting to be delivered to you. Or, how about you treat yourself with a new pair of reader glasses because you deserve it! Whatever it is, we’re happy to help you find a pair of your dreams.
