GlassesUSA is changing the way people buy glasses and helping them keep more money in their pockets.
If you wear glasses like 60% of the population you must be finding it really annoying to dish out hundreds of dollars on a pair of prescription glasses at your local retailer. You would probably find it frustrating if you knew that brick and mortar stores were making a 500-600% mark-up on each and every frame they’re selling. We’re sorry to be the bearers of such bad news, but these stores are responsible for inflating the price of prescription eyewear.
Fortunately, there is some good news… The Internet has changed the retail game for good. It allows retailers to avoid the huge overhead of rent, staff, insurance and so on and so forth. With this premise in mind, GlassesUSA.com was created back in 2008, built on the philosophy that customers have the right not to overpay on such a basic thing as prescription eyewear. By going exclusively online, GlassesUSA.com has eliminated all the unnecessary overhead and can deliver the same product at a fraction of the cost. Prescription glasses that once cost hundreds of dollars are now being sold for prices starting at $24.
The biggest obstacle in selling eyewear is that people don’t know if the frames would sit well on their faces.
GlassesUSA.com understood that this was one of the biggest issues facing the consumer and decided to develop their industry-leading Risk-Free Everything policy. Free shipping and returns on all of their glasses.
Essentially, you have nothing to lose. And to further ease the buying process, the Virtual-Try-On was developed as an interactive way for the customer to see how the glasses actually look on their face from the comfort of their desktop.
Eyewear is the meeting point between fashion and eyesight. On the one hand you want to look great, on the other, you need to see great. From the onset, GlassesUSA.com created a state-of-the-art lab wherein their in-house optical experts cut all lenses to precision, glaze to specification and assemble the finished pair of glasses. This 5-stripe process picks out distortions that are often missed by other labs.
No matter how big the brick and mortar store, an online store is bigger.
Unlimited by shelf space, online stores can easily showcase thousands of frames that can easily be filtered by every imaginable filter such as brand, frame style, face shape, color, gender and so on.
GlassesUSA.com features a wide range of top brands such as Ray-Ban, Tom Ford, Oakley, Calvin Klein to name just a few.
They also feature premium non-branded frames that are manufactured in the same factories as the top brand names but cost significantly less.
When something is too good to be true, it usually is. But that’s just it, buying prescription eyewear online is so easy, affordable and risk-free you would be foolish to at least not give it a chance. At the end of the day you have nothing to lose (aside from over $300 in savings on a pair of glasses!).
