Picking the perfect glasses sounds easy doesn’t it? But it’s actually a bit of a minefield and something I’ve always struggled with. I have quite a round face so there’s certain styles that I tend to stick to. I choose glasses that are wider than they are tall, as wider frames give the illusion of a slimmer face. Also glasses with prints, bright colours and other embellishments all add contrast and definition to the face.


I do most of my shopping online, preferring to avoid the crowds and shop in the comfort of my own home. You’d think that shopping for glasses online would be tricky, as most people like to try before they buy. But sites like PerfectGlasses have taken this into consideration and offer a ‘virtual mirror’, which is a try on feature, allowing you to see exactly how you’d look in your chosen specs before you buy. Even when they turn up, if they aren’t quite what you imagined for example, you can send them back (within 7 days) and request a full refund or exchange – no questions asked!


The variety of mens and womens glasses on offer is impressive, with brands such as Marc Jacobs, Police, Jimmy Choo and Dior all heavily featured across the site. I’d go as far to say that you get a much better selection here than you would in any high street shop and with every pair of glasses you order you get free single vision lenses with a scratch resistant coating.


It’s not just sunglasses that Perfect Glasses offer either, there’s over 1000 styles of designer glasses available too. Simply choose a pair of prescription glasses from the site and enter your prescription which your optician has given you. Then just sit back and wait – your new glasses will be with you within 7 days.

Not only is online shopping hassle free but it’s where you find the best prices too. Sites like PerfectGlasses save money as they don’t have shop overheads for example, meaning they can pass these savings direct to their customers. But don’t just take my word for it – head over and read all the great customer reviews they have and see for yourself why you should make the switch to buying your glasses online.
