Why You Should Never Order Your Eyeglasses Online

Have you thought about buying your next pair of eyeglasses online? While the lure of low costs & more convenience is compelling, it may not be the ideal choice for everyone. 

There is no doubt that online shopping has its conveniences, including not having to leave your home, lower costs and huge selections. But that doesn’t mean it should be a go-to solution for all your needs.

While buying prescription eyeglasses online might initially seem like a brilliant idea, it does have drawbacks which could significantly impact the:

  • Health of your eyes
  • Comfort of your vision
  • Quality of your life

At Market Mall Optometry, we provide a wide range of affordable, quality services that you cannot access online, including children’s eye exams, dry eye care and contact lens fittings to protect your family’s eye health and ensure the comfort and clarity of your vision.

Are you or a family member struggling with a vision problem? We can help!


Why You Should Think Twice Before Ordering Eyeglasses Online

If you are currently in need of new prescription eyeglasses, here are just a few reasons why you should avoid shopping for them online and head straight to your local Calgary eye doctor instead:


1. You Need an Eye Exam First

Whether you are looking for eyeglasses for adults or children, visiting your optometrist for an eye exam to determine your prescription is absolutely necessary before making any purchases

Buying spectacles online with the wrong prescription lenses can have many unpleasant side effects including:

  • Nausea
  • Headaches
  • Blurred vision
  • Strained eyes
  • Vertigo

At Market Mall Optometry, we provide comprehensive eye exams for children and adults to determine the correct prescription strength to fit your vision difficulties and allow you to see as clearly as possible.


2. You Need To Choose The Right Lenses

The lenses you choose for your eyeglasses - even more than the frame - will often determine how happy you are with your spectacles. However, given the vast number of choices for coatings & materials, it’s easy to become confused and purchase the wrong product.

Working with a qualified eye doctor can avoid such costly mistakes.

During an eye exam, your optometrist can take into consideration your lifestyle, prescription & age to help determine which type of lens will offer the best value for your needs.


3. Finding The Right Pair of Eyeglasses Is Not Always Easy

When you choose to buy your eyeglasses online, you will not be able to try them on. Instead, you simply have to cross your fingers and hope that, when you receive them, they will look good on you.

However, when you visit an optician, they will take your face measurements and help you choose from spectacles that suit your unique face shape and size, saving you time and any unnecessary stress that comes from picking the wrong pair.


4. Additional Services

Choosing to visit your local optometrist instead of buying your spectacles online can have great benefits, not only for your appearance, but also for the health of your eyes.

At Market Mall Optometry, we are able to offer a wide range of services that are not available online to help protect your vision and ensure your eyesight is always clear and comfortable including:

Whatever your eye care needs, we provide affordable and quality vision services to you and your family to ensure your eyes stay healthy for many years to come.
