Q: How do I buy eyeglasses and sunglasses on's web site?

Buying glasses on our website is easy and fast!  If you don’t know your frame size, look at frames you already own or stop by a local eyeglasses store to get them measured.

Q: What frame size do I need?

Knowing your frame size is an important part of buying eyeglasses and sunglasses. You can either find the size on a pair of frames you wear comfortably or visit a local optical store to get measured by a professional. You’ll get a better, more comfortable fit by going to a pro – eyeglasses and sunglasses should be custom fitted by an optician to fit your face and its shape correctly.
