Ordering Online Prescription Eyeglasses Maricopa Arizona

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

If you are living in the Maricopa 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.

Maricopa, Arizona

Maricopa is a city in the Gila River Valley in Arizona. With an estimated 51,977 residents as of 2018[4], Maricopa is the second most populous incorporated city in Pinal County and eighteenth most populous in Arizona.[2] Maricopa forms part of the Phoenix metropolitan area.

Maricopa has had three locations over the years: Maricopa Wells, Maricopaville and Maricopa Junction; the latter gradually became known as Maricopa. It started as an oasis around a series of watering holes eight miles north of present-day Maricopa, and about a mile west of Pima Butte. European-American traders and travelers called it Maricopa Wells. Several of Arizona’s rivers, the Gila, Santa Cruz, Vekol and Santa Rosa provided this oasis in the desert with an ample supply of water during this period of time.

During the late 1800s, Maricopa Wells was one of the most important relay stations along the San Antonio-San Diego Mail Line and the later more famous Butterfield Overland Mail Route. Although little remains of this once bustling community, it played an important part in the progress and development of the Southwest. It was one of the best-known spots in Arizona during this period of time because it had a reliable source of water, and offered an abundant supply of food. The peaceful Pima and Maricopa farmers who lived and farmed nearby sold supplies to travelers and migrants.
