Remember when spectacles used to be something that old people and nerds wore? These days though (if you haven’t noticed) folks with four eyes may actually outnumber those with two. Now as much a fashion statement as a pair of shoes, specs are both needed and wanted by an ever increasing number of people. (Smart phone screen eye strain anyone?).
For those who have bought a set of frames before, you’ll know that as soon as you get into prescription territory you’re looking at some serious cash.
Enter the online optical store. With low overhead costs, these stores can deliver specs to your door for a fraction of the traditional shopfront price.
