Apprehensive about ordering glasses online
December 30, 2013 12:28 PM Subscribe
I need to wear glasses all the time for my job (and for seeing things in general). Unfortunately, they broke the day before Christmas, and, while I have repaired them, they're pretty unsightly. The only way I could replace them in the near future would be to order a pair online. However, I have kind of a small head and am apprehensive about not being able to try frames on before purchasing them. How have you folks done with ordering glasses online that fit comfortably? Where should I order from?

I should probably also mention that buying several sets of glasses in the hopes that one fits better than another is not really something I can afford right now, unless they're really inexpensive (like under $10 apiece). Fortunately I tend to prefer metal frames, which are easier to adjust, but I'm still pretty nervous about this.
Additionally, I need to get a new prescription before doing this; does anyone know where can I do this on the cheap in Rhode Island?
