For one thing, you won't have to leave your home to buy your new glasses. You don't even have to get up out of your chair or leave your Netflix episode, or your cat, or your bed for that matter. Perhaps the better question is why wouldn't you buy glasses online?
Whether you're a seasoned expert, or you literally don't know a darn thing about eyewear, you might want to brush up on a few things to understand the most important aspects of purchasing glasses online. However, fear not. SportRx is here to help equip you with all the proper tools of how to buy glasses and sunglasses - both Rx & non-Rx - online.
Online Buying Basics
Your pupillary distance (PD) is important to know when you buy a pair of sunglasses online. How do I measure my pupillary distance you ask? It's simple, and SportRx can help. If you can't get the info from the last place you purchased prescription glasses from, no problem. Take out your wallet, grab a credit card, hold it backwards so that the numbers don't show (for security's sake) and snap a photo of it on your forehead. Email that picture to us and we'll measure your pupil distance. You can also refer to How to Measure Pupillary Distance for additional options and further details for measuring your PD from home.

Check out SportRX's Top 10 Tips for Buying Glasses Online for a thorough overview of key features to look for in your glasses and info to know ahead of time for a smooth online buying experience.
Options, Options, Options
Sure, you might prefer to visit a brick and mortar establishment to actually try a few pairs on, and you know what? That's totally cool, it's expected even, but online buying is all about convenience. Utilize the power of Google to browse almost any piece of eyewear in existence! On sites like SportRX, your options are greatly expanded and you can tailor your search based on your sport or activity, the shape of frame that best suits you, color options, price goals, and so on and so forth. Shopping in-store limits your choices and forces you to pick from what they have available. Buying glasses online positions you to find exactly what you're looking for, no matter how specific your parameters.
Access to Opticians
Are you worried about the fit and whether or not the glasses will look great on you? We can help with that! Our team of opticians are exceptionally skilled at being able to look at a picture of you and make suggestions as to what frame and lens will satisfy your specific wants and needs. They've done it before. Countless times in fact, and they'll do it again with a smile on their face because it's their passion. Every optician we have at SportRx lives and breathes eyewear, both ophthalmic and sunglasses, and to fulfill the eyewear needs of a fellow comrade is the very reason they wake up in the morning. Our opticians are available 7 days a week to give you a more personalized experience than an in-store salesperson.
We may be biased, but the frequent promos on all of your favorite brands for prescription eyewear are pretty unbeatable. Shopping for prescription glasses or prescription sunglasses online gets exponentially better when you take advantage of the online deals. Browsing online also gives you a better price comparison because you can see different retailers side by side and make an informed decision. When you're in-store, what you see is what you get.
Free Shipping & Easy Returns
Our See Better Guarantee alleviates any stress you might have when purchasing products online. If you don't like the way the frame fits, looks, or feels on your face, just send the frames back to us for a full refund. Please note that, should you order, some frames may not require you to send the entire frame back to us, as we have several models available that have the interchangeable lens option.
As always, feel free to give us a call or go online and chat with one of our opticians. They'll make your life easy and you'll see why ordering prescription glasses online is the most convenient and stress-free way to go about getting your eyewear. Buying glasses online means you can spend your time doing the things you really love!
