Traditionally, when you want a pair of eyeglasses you would walk into a retail store to accomplish this. Glasses.com sought out to change how people buy their glasses by offering an easy to use website with innovative tools.

One of their most unique tools is the virtual try-on feature. How this works is you create a 3D model of your face. Next, using that model, you select different frames from Glasses.com's extensive inventory to see how they would fit on your face.

There is also an in-home try-on feature. With this, you select the pair of glasses you want to try, then Glasses.com ships them to you. From there, you have 15 days to try them out. If you like them you can keep them and Glasses.com will charge your card. If you don't like them, you can send them back without incurring any charges.

Glasses.com's innovative tools make it simple for you to shop online for your next pair of glasses. Speaking of glasses, here is a closer look at the diversity of the inventory it has available for you.

Glasses.com - Types of Eyewear

Diversity is important, especially if your family is shopping for eyewear for multiple members. To this end, Glasses.com offers a good choice of eyewear types for men and women, where you can choose between eyeglasses, sunglasses and prescription sunglasses.

Currently, it carries only a limited selection of glasses for children. This means if you need glasses for all members of your family Glasses.com might not be the best option for you.

Glasses.com - Types of Frames

Frame options are also important because not all design tastes are alike. Glasses.com has three types of frames available including rimless, semi-rimless, and full rim in metal or plastic options.

In addition, you can select glasses based on your face shape. Presently, you have your choice between Oval, Round, Heart, Oblong, or Square shapes. Along with shapes, you have 14 color selections to choose from for your frames, providing you with ample variety when it comes to all facets of your eyeglass frame design.

Glasses.com - Types of Lenses

Glasses.com has several types of lenses available. It has Cr39, Polycarbonate, Ultra Lightweight High Index 1.67, and multifocal lenses. With multifocal lenses, you receive no-line bifocals with high quality similar to the Cr39 at a reasonable price.

One of the best ways it achieves this is through its free lenses feature. How this works is you select the frame you want, then, if you spend a certain amount, you receive the lenses for free. The intention behind this was Glasses.com wanted you to spend your money on contemporary designs so you feel more comfortable with your new look.

Glasses.com - Designer Frames

For some buyers, they have a familiarity with a specific brand. With this in mind, having access to the top brands can be the difference in whether they choose the supplier.

In the case of Glasses.com, you won't be disappointed with its inventory, as you have access to a wide variety of the top brands including Coach, Michael Kors, Ray-Ban, Burberry, and Oakley.

Glasses.com - Discount Glasses

The easiest way to find discounts on Glasses.com's current inventory is to visit its website, then scroll down to the bottom of the homepage then click on the sale link under the shop tab. This will take you to the page that has all the items on sale. Since its inventory changes, I recommend checking the site regularly to see what if any products it has available for sale.

Glasses.com Coupons and Promo Codes

Similar to finding discounts, Glasses.com has all of its promotions on its website. All you need to do to find them is to click on the deal and promotions link. Once there, you can see all the promotions it is currently running.

One of the current promotions is you can receive free lenses with the purchase of frames if you spend over a specified amount. Additionally, you can receive free shipping and returns on your orders. Currently, shipping times are five to seven business days. If you need a pair of glasses sooner, you can opt for express shipping for a small fee.

Glasses.com Customer Support

Glasses.com has several points of contact for customer support. You can contact it via phone, live chat, or email. Along with this, it has many resources available on its website where you can access how -to videos on various items such as how to care for your new lenses.

Customer reviews and company reputation are two great ways to determine whether or not you might enjoy a pair of glasses from Glasses.com. On the Better Business Bureau, Glasses.com is not an Accredited Business with an D- score. Keep in mind that the experiences of one customer are not representative of the company as a whole, but it is important to spot potential issues you may have with the company early nonetheless.

Glasses.com Review Recap

Glasses.com carries a diverse inventory from some of the top brands including Tory Burch and many more prominent designers. Along with its diversity, it keeps its costs low to accommodate most budgets.

The company has also partnered with LensCrafters, so if you ordered glasses through Glasses.com and need an adjustment, you can visit a local LensCrafters and have the adjustment done for free.

Meanwhile, there are drawbacks I discovered. For one, it has a limited children's section available whereas many other online eyeglass providers have more selections available. Therefore, Glasses.com won't be the best option for all families.

Overall, Glasses.com has innovative tools and services you won't find with other providers. For this reason, it is one of the better options to consider when looking for eyeglass providers.
