Ordering Online Prescription Eyeglasses Marana Arizona

Cheap Floral EyeglassesIf you have purchased prescription eyeglasses in Marana 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 Marana Arizona

If you are living in the Marana 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.

Marana, Arizona

Marana is a town in Pima County, Arizona, located northwest of Tucson, with a small portion in Pinal County.[4][5] According to the 2010 census, the population of the town is 34,961. Marana was the fourth fastest-growing place among all cities and towns in Arizona of any size from 1990 to 2000.[citation needed]

According to historian David Leighton, the first member of the Anway family in the Tucson area was Charles B. Anway, who arrived as a result of contracting tuberculosis. In 1919, brother William and his two children Louis and Ila arrived in town but they decided to settle in an area northwest of Tucson called Postvale, Arizona. In 1920, William who had been widowed for many years married Orpha Ralston, who was a member for many years in the Postvale Co-operative Women's Club. This club was involved in getting the local post office renamed from Postvale to the area's first known name Marana and in time the town name became Marana.[7]

The southern portion of Marana has grown considerably since the early 1990s with the addition of businesses and some housing, much of it due to annexation of existing unincorporated areas. In 1992, the Marana Town Council voted to annex an area of unincorporated Pima County that was located to the southeast of the town limits. The area selected was a narrow corridor of land that snaked its way south along Interstate 10, then to the east along Ina Road, and then south along Thornydale Road. These areas were mainly high density commercial businesses and shopping centers, including large retailers such as Super KMart (now closed), Costco Wholesale, Target, and Home Depot. The areas were selected by Marana to be annexed, by their own admission, for their sales tax revenue.[8][9] The large residential areas behind these commercial areas were not annexed.[10][11] As a result, the city of Tucson filed a lawsuit in the Superior Court of the State of Arizona in and for the County of Pima (City of Tucson v Town of Marana) claiming that Marana illegally annexed the unincorporated areas in violation of existing state laws. However, on April 4, 1994, Judge Lina Rodriguez ruled in favor of Marana, allowing the annexation to stand.[12] Following this suit, the Arizona State annexation laws were changed, forbidding municipalities from annexing small strips of land without taking large surrounding parcels as well. A "strip annexation" is no longer allowed under Arizona law.[13]
