Seeing an Optician in White Plains Vs. Buying Online

July 22, 2020

It can be quite convenient to buy eyeglasses online. But by purchasing eyewear on the internet, you run a number of risks that could very well lead to dissatisfaction. Visiting an optician in White Plains comes with many advantages—each of which cannot be achieved when just buying online.

For many, it takes several attempts to find a pair of glasses that are just right for their face’s shape, eyesight, width, and other factors. When you visit Raffael Opticians, you can be sure that we can help you find the right pair of glasses for your prescription. And if we don’t offer the glasses you need, we can point you in the right direction.

With that in mind, here’s how buying glasses online and visiting an optician compare.

Why Visit an Optician?

Like most services, buying eyeglasses has made the shift online as well. It gives you the chance to check out literally thousands of options before you decide. It’s this selection that has helped drive the growth of online eyeglasses sales.

However, with this vast selection come some inherent risks and frustrations, like finding a pair that actually fits your face just right. This can lead to your ordering several pairs to try, only to be stuck with shipping them back and covering the costs. Not only is this frustrating, but it also adds to the time you have to wait to get an updated prescription or new pair to aid your vision.

But frames aside, ensuring you get the right prescription can be another frustration and a problem that can lead to headaches, nausea, or simply just not being able to see well and potentially place you and others in danger if operating a car or machinery.

The Benefits of Visiting an Optician

While online shopping for frames can help you get a better idea of the style and shape you’d like, it doesn’t give you the chance to speak with a trained optician who can help you find the frames that best fit your face. Even if you find a pair you like style-wise but don’t work for your face, your optician can help you understand why and assist you in finding another pair that’s similar.

The opticians at Raffy’s do this by measuring your face and eyes to pinpoint any potential glasses that might work for your face. This is especially helpful if you’ve had a difficult time in the past finding glasses. We can help you avoid potential frustration by saving you the time of trying on dozens of pairs of glasses that are just not the right design for your unique facial structure.

We, of course, want you to love the frames you buy, but they are not the only essential component. If you have specialized prescription needs, we can help you get the glasses to meet those requirements. Often, unique prescriptions can be difficult to find online. But when you come to Rafael Opticians, we can answer any questions you might have about your special prescription and get you the frames and lenses right for you.
