Q&A with Dr. Neiheiser
Dr. Neiheiser Answers Your Eyecare Questions
I hear a lot about buying glasses online – is it a good idea?
That’s a very hot topic right now, with more and more online suppliers of eyewear. I understand their appeal: Potential cost savings, convenience of at-home shopping, and a large selection. Let me tell you why it’s generally not a good idea.
1) Glasses should be custom-fit to optimize comfort and meet the specific prescriptive needs. There’s nothing worse than an uncomfortable pair of glasses. And prescription power matters when it comes to frame selection. If you have a high prescription, a difference between the two eyes, astigmatism, a progressive, or a bifocal, you probably already know that accurate measurements and fit are necessary.
2) Fashion and function necessitate a true try-on. For the same reason that a great looking sweater in the catalog sometimes becomes a disappointment once you try it on, glasses should be actually put on your face to see how they look and feel. Sometimes a great looking frame online has temples (the arms of the glasses) that are the wrong length or a bridge (the part that sits on the nose) that’s too wide or narrow, making the glasses feel uncomfortable or look funny. Colors are often very different in print versus in person.
3) Safety and accuracy suffer miserably with online eyeglass purchases. A recent study by the American Optometric Association, the Optical LaboratoriesAssociation, and The Vision Council, discovered that nearly half of online eyeglasses had incorrect prescriptions or safety issues. Alarmingly, about one-fourth failed impact resistance testing, a major safety issue. Worse yet, about 30% of children’s glasses failed this testing. That’s unacceptable and dangerous. The mantra “you get what you pay for” applies here.
4) Warranties, returns, shipping, adjustments and maintenance should all be thoroughly investigated with online stores. Is the company with which you are about to make a major purchase reputable?
Allied Vision Services has been around for decades. We stand behind everything we sell. Our prices are fair and our service is friendly. We don’t rush your order at the expense of accuracy and safety. And, we will be here tomorrow if there’s an issue. There’s nothing wrong with smart shopping. But smart means more than just a low price.
