If you wear glasses, chances are you have seen hundreds of tv ads and received countless emails telling you that you can buy glasses for a ridiculously cheap price.

Know what you want
The first step to grabbing a bargain is to know what you want. If you know which style of glasses you want to purchase, it makes finding a pair within your budget a lot easier. If you do not know what style you want, do some research, there are lots of tools online to help you choose the perfect style for you.
Visit an optician
The best way to tell what kind of style you like is to try some pairs on in real life. That means even if you want to buy online, you may be better of heading to an optician and trying a few different pairs on. When you found the style, you like you can go home and search for the same style online and save some money.
What lenses and add-ons do you want?
Make sure you know what kind of lenses you want in your glasses before searching for bargains online. If you need help in the sun, look at getting some photochromic lenses, if you need help reading up close, get some progressive ones. If you know you scratch your lenses a lot, maybe look at getting some scratch-proof coating on your lenses, and if you work at a computer all day, look into blue light reducing or anti-glare coatings.
Check the reviews
If you are buying a pair online, make sure you read the reviews. If other people are saying really good things about the pair you are looking at, the chances are, you are going to love them too.
If there are a huge number of bad reviews about a pair that you have your eye on, you should probably stay clear.
Make sure your glasses come with a good warranty too. Most online retailers will allow you to return any glasses you buy if you don’t like the look of them when you get them, and most brands should come with a no question asked warranty for if they break or do not perform as they should.
