Half Of Glasses Bought Online Fail Rx Or Safety Specifications
A good pair of glasses can feel like a big expense… Especially when there are online options that appear to provide everything easily and cheap. But there’s a clear value difference between getting your glasses online and getting them from our eye care practice.
A 50/50 Shot Isn’t Worth The Risk
In a survey conducted by the American Optometric Association, it was found that up to HALF of the glasses ordered online are faulty—either in prescription or safety specifications. You can read more about the study by clicking on the image below:
You May Not Think About It Often, But Safety Is Especially Important
When we’re considering new glasses, most of us think about two things—the prescription and the style. But safety and impact-resistance should also be a very important consideration. This is especially important for parents with reportedly 1 in 4 children’s glasses purchased online failing impact resistance tests. A child’s rambunctious lifestyle is more likely to test the shatter-resistance of those lenses.
