Where can you find the best Eyeglasses? If you have not purchased eyeglasses online before, you may not know just how easy it is to order prescription eyeglasses online. But how can you decide which eyeglass company to use?

Obviously, you want to find quality, affordable eyeglasses that look great on you! A lot of eyeglass companies have really simplified the process of online ordering and explain the steps to order in detail on their websites. Some companies even have the virtual mirror where you can virtually try on the glasses to see what they will look like on you prior to ordering.

Glasses Shop

GLASSES SHOP Visit Site

The Glasses Shop has been in business since 2004, and they offer a good variety of glasses and sunglasses. However while their website is attractive and easy to navigate were not able to see in the search exactly how many pairs of glasses were available.

The Glasses Shop provides their customers several ways to search for eyeglasses:

  • Gender
  • Size
  • Shape
  • Material
  • Frame
  • Color
  • Features

The Glasses Shop offers single vision, progressive, as well as a blue blocker lens, which is a digital protection lens. They seem to always have a promotion or sale, and their pricing are very competitive.

Customer service hours at The Glasses Shop are Monday-Friday 9-5, EST if you have any questions and need to contact them.

The Glasses Shop also has an interesting feature on their website which they clal their Look Book. This is where their customers can post pictures of themselves in their eyeglass from the Glasses Shop. If you post a photo of yourself in your new eyewear you can earn bonus shopping points towards discounts off of your future purchases.

The Glasses Shop provides a 90-day warranty for defects in materials and workmanship. They also offer free shipping on orders of $79 or greater.

We did find some customer complaints about the quality of the lenses and how long it takes to receive the merchandise. Products are made and shipped from China, so estimated delivery time can be 3-4 weeks.

Overall, The Glasses Shop is worth considering if you're looking for eyeglasses for a reasonable price.

Glasses Spot

GLASSES SPOT Visit Site

We found the Glasses Spot website to be one of the most confusing websites to navigate. For example, one place it states that they have free shipping on all orders - but then when you click on shipping it states that there is a $9.99 flat rate shipping charge on all orders under $100.

Glasses Spot advertises that they sell 58 name brands of eyeglasses. However when searching specifically for those brands, several only have 1 pair of glasses for a particular brand. At the time of our review it seemed like the website was also having some issues based on the searches we tried to perform. For example, when we clicked on eyeglasses at the top of the screen, only 2 pairs of eyeglasses came up. But if you search on the left side of the screen under frame style it reported there were 3,892 pair of eyeglasses. Frustratingly, though, we were unable to see those pairs.

Glasses Spot has progressive, anti-reflective, transition and polarized lenses. They offer a 14-day money back guarantee, however that is on the frames only and does not cover the lenses. All Deal of the Day purchases are final sales and they will not accept returns on them. Return shipping is also paid by you, the customer.

We also found customer complaints about the production time of their orders. Many reported an order taking several weeks instead of the days that are advertised on their website.

With their misleading "free shipping" claim, along with their almost non-existent eyeglass selection, Glass Spot falls well short compared to the other eyeglass companies that we reviewed. If we were actually able to see the selection of eyeglasses that they advertise we would be able to give them a higher rating.

Continued from above

As you consider the various companies that offer eyeglasses, keep in mind these basic criteria:

  • Selection: How may frames does the company offer? Do they have an easy to navigate website that allows you to easily search for the frame style and lens type that you are looking for?
  • Cost: Which eyeglasses are the best quality for the price? The overall cost of your eyeglasses also includes any shipping or return charges the company may charge as well. When looking at the cost of the eyeglasses you will also want to consider if they offer a warranty on their products.
  • Customer Service: Does the company have a 24/7 customer service number that you can call? Are their hours going to be conducive to your schedule if you need to contact them? Do they have a virtual customer service representative available 24/7? Does the company have a history of satisfied customers? All things to consider when you are evaluating the customer service of the company that you are choosing to do business with.
