Ordering Online Prescription Eyeglasses Chandler Arizona

Cheap Floral EyeglassesIf you have purchased prescription eyeglasses in Chandler AZ, then you are well aware of what a couple of glass lenses and a frame can cost, especially if you are wearing a pair of designer eyeglasses. Add to it the inconvenience and added expense of having to make an appointment with your Optometrist or Ophthalmologist, and it soon becomes an expensive proposition.  You may even have to wait for an appointment to open up sometime in the future.  But what if you could buy eyeglasses online instead?  And what if you could skip the office visit and purchase online right now from an eyewear vendor that could offer you a substantial discount compared to your Optometrist?  Does it sound too good to be true?  Well let’s take a look at how you can buy your next set of eyeglass frames and lenses online at a fraction of the cost you have been used to paying.

Purchasing Glasses Requires a Prescription

  • Prescription Glasses
  • Prescription Sunglasses
  • Reading Glasses
  • Prescription Safety Glasses
  • Designer Eyeglasses
  • Bifocals
  • Rimless Eyeglasses
  • And Kids Glasses

Many eyeglass websites will not require that you actually upload your scanned prescription or fax it to them.  What is important is that you provide the correct numbers and the type of lenses, i.e. single-vision or multi-focal.  If your Optometrist provides them in a handwritten format that is not easy to read, make sure that you confirm them for accuracy or ask for a typed version.

Provide Pupillary Distance for Online Glasses

There are self-measuring methods that you can use in a pinch, but having your doctor measure is the best method.  But be prepared when asking for your prescription and PD to receive a lecture about the risks of buying glasses online.  It may also provide an opportunity to discuss with your doctor if there is any reason why you should not buy glasses online due to the nature of your prescription or fitting requirements.

Order the Right Glasses and Frames

There are some additional things that you should keep in mind when ordering your glasses or sunglasses online to ensure that you are happy with your purchase.

  • Order the right frame size. Wearing glasses that don’t fit properly is both uncomfortable and unattractive.  Frames have three size components: eye size, bridge size and temple size.  Check to see what size your current frames are, or use the size guide that most websites provide.
  • Order glasses that complement your face. The right glasses can add to your appearance and the wrong ones can detract from it. Pick glasses that “fit” your face structure and are flattering.  Many websites have guidelines that will assist you in picking the right frames.
  • Order frames that fit your personality. Color, shape, and materials all add to eyewear style.  Be sure to pick frames that not only fit your personality, but also your wardrobes.  Don’t forget, you will most likely not only be wearing your glasses for casual events, but also for more formal ones as well as at work.
  • Order the right lens material and coatings. There are three basic types of eye lens material: plastic, polycarbonate and high index 1.67.   Each is appropriate for specific uses, such as polycarbonate for athletes, and high index 1.67 for high prescriptions. There are also a variety of coatings that you can have applied to your lenses, such as a UV coating to protect your eyes from the sun.

Some Fun Facts About Chandler Arizona

If you are living in the Chandler AZ area, following is some interesting background history and other facts that may find interesting as well as useful as you search for your new eyewear.

Chandler, Arizona

Chandler is a city in Maricopa County, Arizona, United States, and a prominent suburb of the Phoenix, Arizona, Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA). It is bordered to the north and west by Tempe, to the north by Mesa, to the west by Phoenix, to the south by the Gila River Indian Community, and to the east by Gilbert. As of July 2015, the population was 260,828 according to the United States Census Bureau,[4] According to the city's official website, Chandler's Transportation & Development Department estimated the population, as of May 2016, to be 247,328. It also has satellite locations for many technology companies, including Intel and Orbital ATK.

In 1891, Dr. Alexander John Chandler, the first veterinary surgeon in Arizona Territory, settled on a ranch south of Mesa, studying irrigation engineering. By 1900, he had acquired 18,000 acres (73 km2) of land, and began drawing up plans for a townsite on what was then known as the Chandler Ranch. The townsite office opened on May 17, 1912, the same year that Chandler High School was established.[5] The townsite was bounded by Galveston Street on the north, Frye Road on the south, Hartford Street on the west, and Hamilton Street on the east.[6] By 1913, a town center had become established, featuring the Hotel San Marcos, the first golf resort in the state.

Most of Chandler's economy was successfully sustained during the Great Depression (a second San Marcos hotel was canceled due to the Depression however), but the cotton crash a few years later had a much deeper impact on the city's residents. Later, the founding of Williams Air Force Base in 1941 led to a small surge in population, but Chandler still only held 3,800 people by 1950. By 1980, it had grown to 30,000, and it has since paced the Phoenix metropolitan area's high rate of growth, with vast suburban residential areas swallowing former agricultural plots. Some of this growth was fueled by the establishment of manufacturing plants for communications and computing firms such as Microchip, Motorola and Intel.
