Eyeglasses are fragile items and anything can happen to them from them being broken, lost or accidentally crushed. Most times, you damage them even without your knowledge. When this happens, one thing that usually worries most of us is how to quickly replace them – especially if for some reason you cannot be able to get in touch with an optician. This is even worse for people with prescription glasses who totally depend on them for improved vision.

If you are currently experiencing this kind of situation, it must be a relief to learn that there are some eyewear online companies and retailer shops that offer fast delivery of prescription glasses. This article gives a highlight on what to do if you urgently need to replace your prescription glasses. 

Step 1: Choose a Frame

The first step to take when ordering prescription glasses online is choosing a frame. Frames come in different shapes and sizes which cater for people with different facial figures and sizes. Frames come in shapes such as the aviator, oval-shaped frames or even rectangle-shaped frames.

So, all you need to do is browse around and select the one you want. There are some online eyewear shops that have the ‘virtual mirror’ feature in which you can use to check how the glasses look on you – just like in a physical store! You can use either the video option or you can upload your picture.

After you’ve settled on a frame, the next step is choosing the lenses. This basically involves identifying a lense that fits your needs. You can also choose the size and thickness of the lens you want. There are different types of lenses i.e polarized, blue armor, transition, and clear lenses and they are usually available in either thinner or standard size.

Step 3: Enter your prescription details

The next step involves filling in your prescription details which include information such as spherical power, cylinder power, and Pupillary Distance. You may be required to upload a prescription image that will be used to match the details you’ve entered with the prescription image for accuracy purposes. 

Step 4: Review your order

The last step is basically a review of your order. Checking whether the details captured is exactly what you want and once you are satisfied, you can then confirm the order.


Once you are finished with all the steps above, the shop or company will then custom make the glasses for you and send them through the quality check procedures before packaging and delivering the prescription glasses to your doorstep. This normally takes 2 to 3 days though there are some shops that can do this within 24hrs.


You shouldn’t be worried anymore about replacing your broken, lost or worn out prescription eyeglasses anymore. Always remember that ‘eyes are the jewels of the body’, take care of it and you’ll continue to see all the wonderful and great things this planet has to offer.
