Finding the perfect eyeglass frames that complement your face can be tricky. And buying glasses the traditional way is expensive! The good news is that you can save a lot of money by ordering online. Thanks to modern technology you can try on eyeglass frames from the comfort of your home, choose the ones you love, and have your glasses made at a fraction of what you’d pay from an optometrist or the store at the mall. How? By using the PAIR Virtual Try On Tool. Then you can change your look in a snap by using one of PAIR’s hundreds of frame toppers. They come in every color imaginable plus prints and fun patterns for holidays, sports teams, Marvel, Harry Potter and more.
All you’ll need is a computer, tablet or cell phone with a camera. Here are step-by-step instructions:
Here are some visuals I put together to show you how the screenshots I snapped using the Virtual Try On Tool compare the actual eyeglass frames. The tool does an outstanding job of showing you exactly how the frames will look on your face.
PAIR eyeglass frames and toppers let you change your look in a snap. First you choose a “base” frame which comes in a variety of colors ranging from clear to dark. You can wear the base frame alone, or instantly change your look by adding a magnetic frame topper.
The toppers come in every color as well as “specialty” patterns and prints that include Marvel, Harry Potter, Sesame Street, NHL and The NBA There are new toppers released every month so be warned that you’re going to want to keep buying them. The good news is that they’re only $25 each. So compared the price of new glasses, they’re a steal.
You can even buy sunglass toppers which is much more convenient that switching glasses when you head outdoors.
The BEST way to see if eyeglass frames are flattering is to do an online virtual try on. Here are a few other things you might want to consider:
The average cost for prescription glasses in the US is $300. And that price only gives you ONE look. Compare that to PAIR:
Plus, PAIR has free shipping and returns and a 30-day risk-free trial period.
And, PAIR gives back. For ever pair of glasses purchased, PAIR Eyewear partners with The Eyelliance to provide a free pair of glasses to a child in the developing world.

Virtual Try on isn’t working!
I just tried it and it’s working. Maybe it was a glitch.
