How To Buy The Perfect Glasses Online with MarvelOptics

It's our goal to making purchasing prescription eye glasses online quick, simple, and economical. We take the extra steps to ensure you have all the details you need to make a satisfying decision. Our guide to buying glasses online revolves around the three simple steps below:

1. Select your frame

Your frame selection should be based on three factors: style, size and price.

To make this easy for you, we provide an array of filtering options that will help you quickly narrow the inventory to your preference. Use the style options on the left to select the shape, type, material, and color of your glasses. For expended choices, you can select multiple options. You can view the pros and cons of each category by clicking the additional details button.

You can further narrow your preference for the frames by price. Simply drag the right slider under the price section to select your minimum price and the left slider to your maximum price. This will automatically display the frames available in your price range.

For size, you can look inside your existing frame to get the size of the frame. You will notice a series of numbers like 51-19-140. This is the size of your existing frames for lens width, bridge size, and temple length respectively. Once you've identified the size, you can use the filtering options to search for frames in your size. These measurements are in millimeters, so they only need to be close, not exact.

Finally, use the picture below to understand different measurements.
