Glasses Buying Guide - Everything you need to know before buying new fashion glasses

There are two important things to consider when buying new glasses - brilliant and relaxed vision (even if you don’t need prescription glasses) and great appearance. With different types of lenses available these days, we understand that it can get confusing to know which ones are right for you. So let us start with the lens and coatings options.

Different types of lens and coatings

1. On the basis of prescription

  • Clear or Non-Prescriptive Lenses - If you only need glasses for fashion, blue light protection, etc. They are sometimes also called fake glasses.
  • Prescription Lenses - Apart from single vision, you can also choose bi-focal or varifocal lenses. Single Vision lenses can include EITHER distance or near vision (Reading Glasses).

    Bifocal Lenses - In case you need vision correction for both near and far, you can choose bifocal lenses. They have a clear division near the bottom of the lenses - with the upper part to look at far off objects and the bottom part to look at near ones, for example while reading a book. This division line can be seen quite clearly.

    Varifocal Lenses - Also called progressive lenses across the pond, they offer both near and far vision correction but without any visible line on the lenses. They are technologically advanced lenses with a seamless transition between three parts starting from Distance at the top, to Intermediate in the middle, ending with Reading.

    Priced at £75, Our Premier HD Varifocal Lenses provide the widest field of view at all distances.
2. On the basis of coatings

While on other websites and opticians you may have to decide among anti-scratch, anti-UV and anti-glare coatings at extra costs, at Specscart we offer them for free (Necessity - why not complimentary?) Wondering what their exact benefits are? Read on!

  • Clear or Non-Prescriptive Lenses - If you only need glasses for fashion, blue light protection, etc. They are sometimes also called fake glasses.
  • Anti-glare lenses - Also called anti-reflective lenses, they allow all light to pass through for better visual clarity. Have you ever noticed those pesky white reflections on your glasses in photos? That is what anti-reflective lenses help prevent!

    Anti-UV lenses - These lenses are highly important to protect your eyes from the harmful UV rays from the sun.

    Anti-scratch lenses - AAs the name suggests, it prevents scratches on your lenses.

Apart from these 3 standard lenses, we also provide anti-blue light lenses. If you spend most of your day in‐front of digital devices such as Tablets, smartphones, computers, laptops etc. Blue light glasses are the answer to protect your eyes. Constant exposure to digital blue light could lead to minor headaches and eye‐fatigue. We’ve engineered the most advanced blue light filtering glasses ‐ The X Blue Ultraviolet.

In today’s world where we’re surrounded with all types of digital devices, a strong protection is much needed against them. Even small children are exposed to Tablet screens which could be harmful for their delicate eyes. We suggest users to use blue light blocking glasses not only as their most intimate accessory but also as a modern day protection against the digital screens.

Photochromic/Light Adaptive lenses - Transitions lenses are smart lenses that immediately change from clear to dark tints when exposed to sunlight. They are intelligent lenses that go darker with the relative exposure to sunlight. The transitions lenses will come back to the clear state immediately in the absence of sunlight. Also known as photochromic lenses, they change the shades whilst blocking 100% UVA & UVB rays. They have their own advantages and they’re available in three colours - grey, brown & green. You can get these for an extra £55.

3. On the basis of lens thickness

  • Basic lenses - Suitable for powers 0-3
  • Thin lenses - Suitable for powers 0-6
  • Ultra-thin lenses - Suitable for powers 0-8

Wide range of Non-Prescription and Prescription Glasses online

On Specscart., you can choose from a wide range of fashionable glasses - whether it is for prescription, digital protection or fashion. First, let us look at the following size guide.

What Do The Numbers On The Inside Of Glasses Mean?

Do you ever wonder about the weird numbers on your glasses? You’ll notice a number like 51-16-142 printed on the inside of the frames. You might think of it as a normal number but it says a lot about your glasses dimensions.

These numbers denote three vital pieces of information about your glasses frame size. Here’s our simple frame size guide to help you comprehend easily.

  • Lens Diameter - It represents the horizontal width of the lenses. A normal lens diameter falls in the range of 40mm to 62mm.
  • Bridge Width - It suggests the distance of the lenses and the size of the nose bridge of the frames. A normal bridge width ranges from 14mm to 24 mm.
  • Arm’s Length - It’s the measurements of the temple length, starting from the hinges to the end of temple tips. A normal arm length ranges from 120mm to 150mm.
What is Pupillary Distance?

You might have noticed the word PD or Pupillary Distance written on your prescription. It may sound something new to you, but it is actually a very important criteria when it comes to measurements of the eyeglasses frame and crafting the correct prescription glasses.

We all know that pupils are the center of the eyes i.e. the black coloured circle in the eyes, called the iris. Pupillary Distance (PD) or interpupillary distance (IPD) is the distance between the centers of the pupils of the eyes that is measured in millimetres and varies from one person to the other. Pupillary distance is required by the optician at the time of crafting the eyeglasses so that the lenses are positioned accurately. This horizontal distance is measured from the middle of one pupil to another considering the bridge of the nose at the center point.

Generally, the average adult has a PD that measures between 54mm to 74 mm. Regarding kids, it can be anywhere between 43mm to 58 mm.

Choosing the right glasses for your face shape -

Glasses possess the ability to affix themselves to a person’s identity, which is why choosing the right type is of vital importance, especially considering the number of options available today. One of the most crucial factors to be kept in mind while choosing a frame, which many often choose to ignore, is the shape of the wearer’s face. Here’s a guide to help you pick a frame which will best suit your face shape.

There are six basic face types: -

  • Round face shape: If you have a round face with wide cheekbones, and an equally wide jawline and forehead, you should opt for angular frames with bold lines. Wayfarers would be the perfect option. If you go for round frames, they will only draw more attention to your round cheeks; therefore, they should be avoided at all costs. Avoiding frames that are very small in size would also be a good idea.
  • Square face shape: Glasses with curved frames would suit you the best if you have a square shaped face with angular features. These can include round/oval frames, aviators, as well as cat-eyes. The idea is to opt for thin frames that are fairly wider than your cheekbones.
  • Rectangular face shape: If you have a rectangular face, where the length of your face is longer than its width, you should get yourself glasses with large frames. They will help balance your facial features by making the length of your face appear smaller than it is. Wayfarers and oversized cat-eye frames are beneficial choices.
  • Oblong face shape: In order to obtain the perfect glasses for a triangular face shape, where the jawline is wide and the forehead is rather narrow, you must pick angular frames with detailing on the upper portion; it will help create a pleasant parallel with your jawline. Browline and cat-eye frames will definitely enhance your features.
  • Heart face shape: Heart shaped faces have wide foreheads and a narrow jawline. The best way to balance your facial features would be to choose frames that come with a detailed lower portion and are slightly wider than your forehead. Wayfarers, aviators, squared, and rectangular frames would surely be the best choice for you.
  • Oval face shape: : If you have an oval-shaped face, you’re the luckiest one here. Almost every frame will suit you exceptionally well. With your wide cheekbones and equally narrow forehead and jawline, everything would look great on you; rounded frames or angular, feel free to explore. Cat-eye, butterfly, and other kinds of oversized frames, including aviators, will work wonders with your features. Just make sure to avoid small frames in order to completely do justice to your appearance.
Follow the colour wheel

The next step in selecting a frame is to choose colours that go with your natural colour palette. If your skin tone is cool, go for cool shades such as black, blue and grey. But, if your undertone is warm, earthy browns, tortoiseshells, yellow, golden, red or orange hues will complement your skin.

Most people settle for neutral shades to enjoy the freedom of effortless styling. But, adding a splash of colours to your designer glasses frames makes you look fun and interesting.

You can use the 3D virtual mirror to see which frame colour makes your skin tone pop. If you have beautiful eyes, you can choose glasses for different eye colours which is also easy.

Consider your lifestyle

We all come from different walks of life. Then why should our glasses be the same?

If you’re an athlete or have an active lifestyle, you need frames that could take your daily adventures and give you vision protection both indoor and outdoor. Transition glasses lenses go from clear to dark in the presence of UV light to protect your eyes from sun damage.

But if you’re a student, you could either play safe and go for transparent glasses or you can flaunt your quirky personality with geometric specs. For working professionals, rectangular glasses or browline specs will make you look corporate ready.

If you are an artist, you can draw style inspiration from vintage glasses. Wooden frame glasses will also be an interesting choice for you.

Don’t overlook the frame material

Glasses come in a range of frame materials all having their own exclusive qualities and benefits. When buying glasses, you’ll have the following options to choose from

  • Acetate: It is one of the most common materials used in eyewear. You could call it strong plastic without the harms and nuisance of plastic. Acetate is known for its durability and lightweight appeal.
  • Wood: Wooden glasses are practical and drawn from the goodness of nature. The unique texture of the wood gives an interesting spin to traditional designer glasses frames and help you stand out from the crowd.
  • Metal: Metal glasses are durable and give a polished finish to your look. They blend with your look and are comfortable to wear for long hours. Titanium glasses are the most popular among metal frames as they are built to last and feel comfortable on your skin.

You can also use these tips when shopping for sunglasses.
