Are you looking to update your eyeglasses? It’s easier than you may think! You don’t need to shop in-store to get the right glasses. All you need are your current glasses prescription, pupillary distance measurement, a working internet connection, and a method of online payment (e.g., Visa/debit card or PayPal).

The Eyes

Current glasses prescriptions typically last between one and two years, but it may be shorter depending on how quickly your vision changes. If you don’t have an up-to-date prescription, consider seeing an ophthalmologist (eye doctor) for a check-up before ordering new glasses.

If you’re not familiar with the term ‘pupillary distance,’ never fear! It sounds more complicated than it is, but it can be measured at home with relative ease. It just refers to the distance in millimeters between the centers of your pupils. This measurement is essential because it will ensure your eyes align with the prescription. Plus, inaccurate PD numbers can have a handful of adverse outcomes, including headaches, eye strain, and blurred or distorted vision.

You can use a ruler (or your existing glasses) to take your PD, either by yourself or with the help of another person. You can find more detailed instructions here about how to measure your PD, both single and dual. Unfortunately, this method isn’t always precise, but you can still get a good result at home: just take multiple measurements and then calculate the average.

The Frames

So now that you’ve got your prescription and your PD, it’s time to find the perfect frames. This is the exciting part! Scrolling through the website to find the perfect set of frames is the digital equivalent of window shopping, and it’s fun to imagine how your choice of frames can affect your sense of style.

You don’t need to choose a particular style of frame to ‘match’ your face shape—it’s really about what makes you feel happy and confident! But if face shape is something that matters to you, it’s simple enough to figure it out for yourself; use this Cosmopolitan guide to find out your face shape. Just remember that not all face shapes fall neatly into a single category, and really, there’s no right way to accessorize your eyes! There are no rules in fashion… but Allure does offer a few suggestions.

The Lenses

Once you’ve found the frames with the right fit, you can proceed through the checkout. At this point, you’ll be able to enter your PD measurement, as well as your prescription information. This will ensure that your new glasses are fashionable, functional, and fit snugly to your face. You can also choose any other special lens modifications you may want, such as photochromatic lenses, blue light blocking ability, or anti-scratch coating.

Placing The Order

Now all that’s left to do is send the order through! Before you click the button, consider checking the return policy. While you’ve gone through all the trouble of making sure the fit and frames are right, it’s good to know that you’re able to return or exchange your new glasses if necessary.

Shop smart, shop clear, shop Klarvision.
