I honestly don’t get glasses from brick and mortar stores anymore. Come to think of it, the last time I did was two years ago! Since I’ve been buying eyeglasses online since 2006, I certainly can speak to the ease and convenience of it. Once you have your script and know your PD (pupiliary distance; you can have your eyeglasses scanned for this or use a tiny ruler and measure it yourself), you are pretty much good to go!
I was recently introduced to Vusion Glasses, which offers vintage-inspired eyewear that is fun, fashion forward, and ultra easy to select. The company offers a try-on option so that you can upload your photo and see what the frames look like on you before making a purchase, as well as super cool PD meter function to get your pupiliary distance.

Shop for Rx eyeglasses, Rx sunglasses, regular sunglasses and plano glasses, for those of you that are blessed with good eyesight and don’t need to nerd out with eyeglasses all the time. Courtesy of the brand, I participated in the Vusion vision experience, and picked out a pair oft the VIENN Rubber Gray eyeglasses.
When they arrived (within three days-it was crazy fast!) the packaging and presentation was perfect, with a cool, sleek case, a branded cleaning cloth, and of course, my glasses that looked even better in person! Prescription frames and lenses on the site come to just $88, with no shipping cost. PLUS, we’ve got a Fashion Pulse Daily exclusive for you!
