Glasses at Home is revolutionising the eyewear industry
We offer a unique blend of in-person care and online convenience and understand that buying prescription glasses should not be a compromise between quality and cost. That’s why we’ve created a solution that bridges the gap between traditional high street opticians and online eyewear companies.
When it comes to eyewear, most people follow a common path: get an eye test at the optician and purchase glasses if needed right there. However, what many don’t realise is that, by law, they’re entitled to a copy of their prescription to purchase glasses wherever they prefer. Unfortunately, the seamless handover between the eye test and choosing frames isn’t always smooth. High street opticians might encourage you to buy expensive frames and lenses, but the options don’t end there.
The Online Choice
When you consider the convenience and cost savings, it’s tempting to buy glasses online. Many online companies offer home trials, sending frames to your doorstep for selection. However, significant issues arise with this approach. The frames might feel okay initially, but without professional fitting, they may start slipping or become uncomfortable.
Another crucial element is the Pupillary Distance (PD), the space between your pupils in millimeters. This measurement is rarely included in your prescription but is essential for precise eyeglass fitting. Online companies typically ask you to measure your PD using a ruler and webcam, but this method lacks the precision of a trained professional.
The Varifocal Conundrum
For those who need varifocal glasses, the challenges are even greater. Varifocals demand not only properly fitted frames but also precise measurements for different lens zones. Online companies try to solve this complex issue by having customers self-measure, but this often results in misaligned lenses and frustrating experiences.
Glasses at Home is a Northern Ireland-based company founded by experienced registered optometrists and optical consultants. We’ve combined the advantages of online shopping with the expertise of in-person care to provide a unique solution. Our process is simple and effective:

Frame Fitting: We ensure your chosen frames fit perfectly, and any necessary adjustments are made right there.
Precise Measurements: For complex lenses, like varifocals, we take into account your typical close-up and near work environment, body posture, and other factors to ensure accurate PD measurements and lens alignment.
