Glasses.com vs. Coastal Glasses
Coastal.com produce an extensive range of own-label and designer eyeglasses with a virtual try-on feature. Their base contact lenses are impact-resistant and have a number of different coating options.
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.
It can take up to 16 days for your new frames to be delivered to you according to Coastal’s shipping policy. It can take even longer for your new contact lenses to arrive as they also have to go through an initial verification process.
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.
Coastal offer a variety of options for your next pair of eyeglasses or lenses. Each pair of frames is available in different colours and sizes, which creates an abundance of choice, and the virtual try-on feature is super handy. Stylish and affordable, you can’t go wrong with Coastal eyewear - you just have to be prepared to endure their long processing and shipping times.
