• Do Not Buy Eyeglasses Online

    When it comes to clear vision, buying a pair of glasses "off the rack" just doesn't cut it - especially since every patient has unique vision needs. Wohl Optics understands the importance of providing patients with personalized and professional advice based on over 20 years of optical experience.

    If you have been thinking of ordering eyeglasses online, please don't. Eyeglasses are NOT "one size fits all." Prescription FIT is the most important part of having your best vision.  How can this be done online?  It cannot.

    When purchasing prescription eyewear online, people sacrifice the quality and fit of what is considered by the U.S. F.D.A. to be a Class 1 medical device. This has been a cause for great concern in the eye health industry.  When it comes to your eyes, please do not cut corners.

  • In a research study conducted by the Vision Council, researchers found that of the 200 pairs of eyeglasses received, 44.8% of them had incorrect prescriptions or safety issues outside of standardized guidelines. Several pairs had the wrong lens types. And even more alarming was the fact that 23% of adult eyeglasses and 29% of children’s failed to meet impact test standards.  According to a recent study by the American Optometric Association, over 50% of eyeglasses ordered online are inaccurate prescriptions or have safety issues.

    Eyeglasses are a custom product, with decades of technology put into every custom frame and lens.  Every pair of glasses must be custom fit by an experienced optician to ensure comfort, quality and prescription accuracy. If you are thinking of ordering eyeglasses online, please don't. 

    When ordering eyeglasses online,  you have no optician is there to assess exactly what part of the lens you are looking through. Generally, when you order online, companies place the vertical center of vision (as opposed to the horizontal center of vision, which is the PD, or pupillary distance) in the geometric center of the lens. 

    THE RESULT:  Eyeglasses that are not properly fit will result in discomfort, additional vision problems, headaches, and stress.

    Wohl Optics has extensive experience with all new lens technologies, as well as decades of training and knowledge manufacturing, repairing and finishing everything optical-related.  We provide unsurpassed fitting and prescription accuracy, especially if you have had a hard time getting an eyeglass prescription that works for you.  This is even more important when buying progressives, which are our specialty.
