Through the hustle and bustle of back-to-school shopping, kids’ glasses may be overlooked on that long list of things to buy. However, if there’s a best time to buy eyeglasses, it’s the months before returning to school. Not only are there the best deals, but your kids should be looking and seeing their best in the classroom. So it’s not a question of whether to buy new glasses or not, it’s just figuring out when and where.
When it comes to price, it’s always better to buy glasses online vs. in the store. The cost of custom lenses and different enhancements and coatings can really add up if you’re not careful. According to Consumer Reports, people paid over $200 on average for glasses at the optical store versus under $100 online. There is also a much wider selection online, and some retailers even have their own in-house brands so your kids won’t end up with the same looks as the rest of their classmates! Our Picklez and Picklez Flex collections are popular amongst parents and kids for being comfortable, durable, and affordable—starting around just $40. Since kids can be prone to losing or damaging their glasses, we even have a 365-Day Kid-Proof Warranty that allows you to return or replace them within one year!
Even though kids don’t want to think about going back to school in July, that’s actually when all the retailers start their sales. The best online back-to-school sales on glasses for kids and teens rev up between July and August. From August 16th to the 29th, you can save 30% on all of our eyeglasses, sunglasses, and readers at DiscountGlasses.com. We also have student and teacher discounts all year round for 25% off the entire site!
Go back-to-school shopping without the fear of spending an arm and a leg on kids’ glasses. Your child and wallet will thank you!
