Buying glasses online

If you’ve ever been hesitant about buying glasses online, worry no more. We’re about to show you how easy we’ve made it — just follow these steps.

First things first

If you know your prescription from back to front, or don’t need a prescription at all, you can skip straight down to section number 2 where you can explore our collection.  

But, if you wanna learn more about your eye’s sphere measurement and pupillary distance — and we recommend you do  — let us guide you through some fundamentals.

1. Eye care support

Know your prescription

The numbers on your prescription are ingredients for the recipe that makes your glasses. We dive deep into it all here — give it a read to distinguish a sphere from a cylinder, or discover whether you’re long- or short-sighted. You might even find it interesting. Don’t have a prescription yet or have one that’s more than two years old? Visit one of our stores and get a free eye test.

Measure your PD

We can’t tell you how many people forget to measure their pupillary distance (PD) when ordering glasses — we need it to make sure your lenses align properly with your eyes. After you've placed your online order, we'll send you an email with a link to our online tool — you'll be able measure the distance between your pupils in just a few seconds.

By now, you’ve probably got a shortlist of styles, but if you’re still having trouble choosing, let us introduce you to Home Try-On (available in DE, UK, BE, AT and FR). 

Pick four frames (opticals only), have them delivered to your doorstep and spend five days getting familiar with them. When you’ve chosen the winner, send them back to us and order your future frame on our website.

Once ordered and depending on your prescription, your (sun)glasses will be ready within 1-2 weeks. And we’ll keep in touch so you know exactly when to expect your delivery — saves you waiting at the doorstep.

Glasses can be a tricky thing, however, and we understand that things don’t always go right on the first try.
