I have done a few reviews of online eyeglass and contact lens retailers in the past few months and it is time for another! This review is for Just Eyewear.
You can save a lot of money by purchasing your eyeglasses online. You can find name brand eyeglasses for much less if you use an online retailer. The average pair of eyeglasses purchased through Just Eyewear is only $40.
Purchasing eyeglasses online is simple. Your doctor will give you your eyeglass prescription. Instead of taking that to their shop simply use it to purchase glasses online. Just Eyewear has a great tutorial on the subject. The biggest difference between this site and the other eyeglass sites I have tried is that this one asked for Pupillary Distance. The other sites just used an average. Your eye doctor will give you this number just make sure that you ask.
The glasses I received are of good quality. The color and look was well represented on the site. I love the tutorials on the site. Make sure you have a ruler handy when you order so you can draw out how large the glasses are (visualizing what they look like is the hardest part about ordering glasses online).
The glasses came quickly once they were shipped. I had made a mistake with my prescription the first time I ordered and so they were put on hold. A month later I contacted them and they told me what had happened. I did not use my email address so there was no way of contacting me (and I never got a shipping notice). When you checkout filling in an email address is optional but I strongly recommend doing it!
