CBS News Reports:

Pros and cons of buying eyeglasses online


  • Low prices: as much as 70 percent less than in traditional optical stores.
  • Convenience: Shop from home and have your glasses delivered to your door.
  • Selection: thousands of frames to choose from at the click of a mouse.


  • Can’t actually try them on.
  • Possible return hassles.
  • Still may have to have your frames professionally adjusted.

That’s just a portion of a pretty well-done article, really it is a lot like this article that I wrote four years ago. Clearly, the whole saving-a-bunch-of-money thing on prescription eyewear has broad appeal.
