EyeBuyDirect vs. Glasses.com
Glasses.com offer an array of designer glasses, sunglasses, and safety glasses with minimal shipping times due to their in-house laboratory. They also provide helpful resources and virtual try-on features through their app.
Even though EyeBuyDirect deliver both nationally and internationally, they only offer free domestic shipping if you spend over $99. They also have a unique pricing proposition where the prices listed on the site are for the frames only. If you want advanced or even basic lenses, you will need to keep in mind the added cost as you’re shopping.
Even though Glasses.com allow free shipping for their US customers, they don’t ship internationally. In addition, they don’t offer contact lenses, and some of their frames have extremely high price points for those with lower disposable income.
EyeBuyDirect have a fashionable and affordable eyewear range. Their passion to make glasses accessible is apparent in everything that they do, from producing their frames in-house to offering their own innovative brand to donating to charities who share their vision. The EyeBuyDirect website is minimalistic and user-friendly which makes it incredibly easy to shop with them. It’s just a shame that their pricing policy isn’t straightforward and you have to spend so much to qualify for free shipping.
Glasses.com are much more fashion-forward than your standard eyewear retailer, providing an extensive range of on-trend designer sunglasses at high-end price points. The shipping costs and times are ideal if you live in the US; however, it’s a shame that they don’t ship internationally.
