Ordering Glasses Online: Perfect Glasses Review & Giveaway

Collaborative Post

I’ve been wearing glasses for 18 years (gosh, I feel old working that out!) and I actually really like wearing them. I had a brief summer fling with contact lenses during my early twenties, but other than that, I’ve been a glasses girl all the way!

  • They give me a chance to change my appearance / look when I feel like it
  • They draw attention to my eyes (and away from my nose!)
  • They hide the bags under my eyes (!)

Have you ever bought your glasses online, though? I have to confess that, although I do 95% of my shopping over the internet, I’ve never ordered glasses from a website. I’ve always been put off by the thought of not being able to try them on before buying.

However, I recently discovered Perfect Glasses. They’re an online prescription glasses retailer, specialising in adult glasses, and they’ve come up with an ingenious solution. All you have to do is take a quick snap of yourself with your webcam (or upload a photo you already have) and suddenly, you can try on any of their fantastic glasses you like!

There are detailed measurements of all the glasses so you can compare the dimensions to your current ones. You can also select whether you have a broad, average, or narrow face.


That’s the technical stuff out of the way. Now comes the fun bit – choosing your glasses! Perfect Glasses stock a really wide range of frames and have some great advice about which face shapes suit which style. There are over 1000 styles to choose from.

I had so much fun “trying on” the glasses (and yes Hubby and I got a bit silly and tried on glasses that were way too cool for us… but nobody saw so it’s okay!) It was really easy to do and it meant that I felt really confident when I needed to make my decision.

What really surprised me was the price – with the current 50% sale on, you can buy your glasses online for just £9! That includes the scratch-resistant coating and lenses created to your exact prescription.

Perfect Glasses also stock a lot of designer brands, including Gucci, Marc Jacobs and their fab Hugo Boss Collection. These (along with all the other glasses on the site) can also be ordered prescription-free if you just want them for fashion purposes.


Perfect Glasses is also a great place to buy your prescription sunglasses. As well as stocking an extensive range of sunglasses, you can also customise the regular glasses by adding tints or transition lenses.

Our verdict

In all honesty, I regret that I’ve only discovered Perfect Glasses 18 years into my glasses-wearing-journey! The glasses that we ordered look absolutely fab (as I knew they would from the photo software). But they also feel really good quality too, even though they’re so much cheaper than high street glasses.

The prescription is spot on and I was able to start wearing them straight away without any issues. I was also pleased that the glasses arrived wrapped in foam (as well as a hard glasses case) so that they weren’t damaged at all in transit.


I will definitely be promoting this service to my own friends and family, and if you’d like to buy your own, the URL is:

    I much prefer regular tinted glasses over transition. I find transition can sometimes be a little slow at changing between light and dark situations

    I prefer regular tinted to transition, as they don’t change back fast enough for me when I’m in the sun, but then walk inside a shop.

    I prefer regular tinted lenses because I wear contact lenses, however if I would love a pair of transition prescription glasses so that I could bask in the sun without wearing my contacts and give my eyes a rest. I am very shortsighted!

    I remember my dad having transition glasses years ago and they were really slow to change which seemed quite dangerous but if the technology has changed then they have to be the ideal.

      They’re definitely worth a try. It can mean you don’t need to carry 2 pairs of glasses around with you. Although, being a sun-lover myself, I found they changed a little too quickly for my taste! Haha

    I prefer regular tinted sunglasses so I can pick and choose which ones I want to wear, guess I like to have the control and it’s what I’m used to!

    I have actually never had the transitions lenses just prescription tinted ones. But I think transition ones would be ideal for me as it would save me from keep swapping glasses.

    Transitions are great. I like to ‘see’ as much as I can so having the clearer lenses in the low light help and the added tinted protection when it’s too bright is perfect for me.

    Transitions are great but I need tinted glasses as I’m hopeless with any sunlight and sometimes transitions are to slow to change.

    I’ve never tried transition lenses, but I think I’ve always gone for tinted glasses because it’s easier to control when the colour changes. With transition lenses, you only have to go into a too-bright room and they’ll change colour, and that’s not always what I need. I’ve never seen anyone my age wear transition lenses, which also has something to do with it, I think!

    I much prefer transition lenses. I have always liked the idea of glasses adapting to the light and find this much better than having a permanent tint when I need to see things clearer !

    I wear the regular lens. To be honest I haven’t tried transitions or mirrored lenses. I only need to wear glasses for driving which is great but the prescription sunglasses I have are slightly too wide on my head which means when you want to wear them on your head pushing your hair back, they fall off easily!

    Marie Clifton

    I prefer tinted glasses because it’s what I’m used to, and I like to have a different style of sunglasses from my regular glasses.

    REGULAR prescription sunglasses. Haven’t gone for everyday tinted yet. sceptical that they may change when i dont want them too

    Alison Johnson

    I prefer regular tinted glasses. I tried Transition lenses & found they didn’t suit me. If I’m wearing sunglasses I just want to be wearing sunglasses.

    Nancy Bradford

    I prefer regular tinted glasses. The others seem to not always change when they are meat to an you end up with half tinted lenses when you are inside.

  16. 82

    I prefer regular tinted glasses as transitions are ok but in the car due to the glass they do not darken which is a pain when driving

  17. 83

    Reading this is giving me a prompt to get online and order mine. I’ve been going to do this for 12months now…
