Why You Should Think Twice About Purchasing Eyeglasses on the Internet

While many Internet users are used to buying anything and everything on the Web, eyeglasses are a product that you should consider purchasing in person. Why? Although you may encounter reduced rates on the Web, the benefits of going to an opticians Fairview store far outweigh the ''deals'' you might score online.

One of the best reasons for purchasing glasses at an optical Plano TX boutique rather than online is that you have an experienced optician to advise you in your selection. Our opticians can walk you through the many considerations you will account for in purchasing the right glasses. In instances where you purchase online, you don't have the experienced input of a professional optician.

Because each of us has a unique shape and structure, it is hard to identify properly fitted eyeglasses without first trying them on. An optometrist Plano TX will take your measurements and suggest a pair of glasses that are a good fit and won't cause discomfort. Frames that are too small tend to pinch the sides of your head, while those that are too big can quickly fall off the bridge of your nose. Online optical sites may offer suggestions, however it is challenging to try and fit yourself.

Even more than the comfort and alignment of your glasses, proper vision requires accurate PD measurement. The optical focus of your lenses gives you the truest vision, making it essential to properly determine the pupillary distance, or PD. It can be complicated to measure your PD by yourself, but without this measurement, your lenses won't be positioned correctly in the frames.

Yes, Internet buying is often great for other products, but with glasses you're best off staying with your local optometry office where you are able to benefit from the staff expertise and advice.

Because of the COVID 19 Virus we will only be staying open to meet the needs of patients with eye problems and emergency exams.

We will be deferring routine exams and delaying contact lens exams until further notice. We will be supporting our patients who were unable to come for their contact lens exams, due to these new restrictions, by extending your current contact lens prescriptions, whenever possible. Please call to discuss this option with us.

When all is settled, we will be calling our postponed patients to get them back in for those exams.

Patients over the age of 60 or in a high risk category will not be seen so please call ahead and speak to us before you come by.

If you have an emergency or medical issue, call us! We’re here to help!

Thank you so much!!! 972-210-2100
