Designer Eyewear Dupes

Amanda Schafer

Designer Eyewear Dupes

For those that remember being judged in grade school for not wearing the latest name-brand clothing, shoes, or handbags, you may be pleased to know that times have changed. Wearing the more affordable option is no longer considered a “knock off” and is now called a “dupe”. Finding luxury dupes for expensive brands is all the rage right now. Since delivering high-quality products at affordable prices has always been our mantra, this is a perfect time for us to prove why we’re better than those overly expensive designer brands (and look similar, if not better, than them). As an added bonus, we're having a 40% off flash sale from April 10th to Friday the 14th!*

Where to Save & Where to Splurge

  • Save - Brand Names: Just because a frame is from a high-end brand, doesn’t always mean it is higher quality. For the price you pay for one pair of designer frames, you could get multiple similar pairs from an affordable retailer.
  • Save - Features: Frames come with multiple features to choose from. There are different hinge types and bridge types that offer various benefits such as extra comfort and mobility. However, these features are typically already included in the price and don’t cost extra.
  • Splurge - Lens Packages: What really sets one pair of glasses apart from another are the lenses. Not only are there different prescription lenses to choose from, but there are also optional lens packages that can be added. Anti-reflective, blue light, or Transitions enhancements are all great additions depending on when and where you choose to wear your glasses.
  • Splurge - Materials: Glasses are made from varied frame materials that offer different benefits. From acetate plastic to stainless steel and titanium, prices will vary because of their weight and durability.

Buying Glasses Online vs. In Store

One of the biggest advantages of shopping online is that you can browse however long you want in the comfort of your own home. Not only is it much more convenient, but you have a larger variety of eyewear to choose from. Every type of frame is at your fingertips and can even be filtered down to the exact price, color, and style that you’re searching for. Learn more about why to buy glasses online in our Blog.

Discount Glasses Perks

  • Online Vision Test: Do you prefer to sit at home on your comfortable couch over a cold, hard chair in a doctor’s office? If so, you’ll love using our online vision test. Those that qualify will be able to renew their prescription online for free!
  • Virtual Try-On: One thing you can’t do online that you can do in the store, is try glasses on—until now. Our virtual try-on feature allows you to picture yourself in different glasses before deciding to purchase. Learn how to use it here.
  • Site Sales: We have frequent site sales and coupon codes that can be used for large discounts throughout the year. We’ve already laid out the best time of year to buy glasses, so it’s up to you to keep an eye out. Subscribe to our emails or follow our social media to be amongst the first people to hear about our sales.
