Online (fast fashion):

Advantages:

  • Convenient
  • Allows you to shop in the comfort of your Home
  • Cheap
  • Fast response time

Disadvantages:

  • You most likely have a customer service representative with minimal knowledge of optics
  • Probably lower quality frames and lenses
  • Risk of frames not fitting correctly
  • Risk of ill-fitting lenses
    • they usually ask for your pupillary distance measurements, which leaves room for error or an extra step to get it from your doctor
    • they most likely do not take vertical measurements – will center or use an average/algorithm
