The Dangers of Buying Eyeglasses Online

Your College Station Optometrist Warns Patients of the Dangers of Buying Eyeglasses Online

Many of us have gotten used to buying the products and services we need everyday online. There are some benefits to buying online. It's convenient, generally affordable and we don't have to leave our house. There's nothing like the click-click-click of shopping for Christmas online. However, there are some things that you either don't want to, or shouldn't but online. Shoes or boots for example. These are items that need to fit perfectly to provide comfort and value. They are far better off being purchased in person. The same is true for eye wear.

Why Purchasing Online Eyeglasses is a Bad Idea

At Crystal Vision Center, your eye doctor in College Station, TX, it absolutely amazes us that some people choose to buy eyeglasses and frames online. Your vision, after all, is one of the great gifts you've been given. Trusting that vision to some online company who is margin-focused may not be the best solution to your eye care needs. That's why we encourage you to see us at Crystal Vision Center.

What Online Eye Care Providers Don't Provide that Your Optometrist Does

An online eye care provider isn't there to take measurements. They are an impersonal service that doesn't understand the importance of family history in eye care. They don't care about your vision as much as they care about making an online sale. They don't provide the quality, follow up, and peace of mind that your eye doctor in College Station provides. You end up sacrificing far too much for a few dollars saved when purchasing eyeglasses online.
