This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of as part of our Spring Guide. All opinions expressed are our own.

Back-to-School shopping can be an overwhelming task, especially if you wait until the last minute. We homeschool, however I still do all of the typical back-to-school shopping that other parents do. I find that if I start early enough I can score some awesome deals on the supplies that my kids need throughout the year.

One thing that a lot of parents don’t take into consideration at back-to-school time is prescription eyeglasses. This is a good time to have your child’s vision checked and pick up a new pair of eyeglasses. It’s also a good idea to pick up a back up pair (just in case). You just never know when your child might leave their glasses at school or at a friend’s house, or when they might accidentally sit on them or break them in gym class (trust me, it happens ALL of the time!)

We prefer to shop online for our prescription glasses. The main reason I do this is because of the money savings. I won’t lie, I have a rather big family and any little savings I can get is appreciated. With that being said, I don’t like to sacrifice quality for price cuts. This is why we prefer to get our glasses at With we can pick up a nice new pair of prescription eyeglasses for a fraction of the cost and still get the great quality and style that our kids (and ourselves) like.

    I find that getting eyeglasses online is so much better and the quality is superb and i have gotten eyeglasses online and I am going to check out this site to get glasses for back to school.

  2. James Robert says:

    Great information and I Have 2 that wear glasses so I need to check this out. Thank You!

  3. I have never tried getting glasses online. I have a friend who swears by it, though. In fact, I think she uses this site. Thanks!

  4. Glasses can get so expensive, especially when you have to purchase them for four different family members! I appreciate that this site offers a wide selection, as well as prescription sunglasses, and will definitely be checking them out.

    • Oh, I hear ya! Thankfully there are only 3 of us out of the 7 in glasses, but I have a feeling eventually more of my kids will need glasses. I’m just glad we have found a less expensive option b/c my boys are rough and tough on things!

  5. I have ordered glasses online and been pretty lucky so far.

  6. My wife and I are well beyond back-to-school shopping….THANK GOODNESS! We do, however, have a grand daughter and a great niece who are in elementary school. Both will be in the same class this year! YIKES! I feel for their teacher! I’m going to pass on these awesome tips for back-to school shopping to their parents!

    • No way! I would never have guessed that you and Becky were grandparents! That’s awesome though! The same class, huh? That could make for an interesting year! 😉

  7. In the past I was always afraid to order my glasses on line. Wasn’t sure about the quality and if they would get the right lenses. After reading this I will have to look into getting my glasses on line.

  8. This is a great post! I have worn glasses since I was 3! I am always looking for away to save money on my prescriptions. I think my dd5 may be getting glasses this fall, so I will really have to look into this!

    • You definitely should! Little ones can be so destructive with their glasses (our son was anyway!) I’m able to buy our son several pairs of glasses online for the price I paid for one pair at our eye doctor’s office.

  9. I need to check this company out. I need new glasses and so does lil Abby. Finding affordable ones would be great with all of the other back to school costs.

  10. I will have to check them out! I love using all the online eyeglass shops to get my eyeglasses! Easier than in the optical stores by far!

  11. Nice, I always love to find a deal. My kids don’t wear glasses at the moment, but they might down the line because I have terrible vision.

  12. I love the designs of their glasses. Getting prescription glasses can get really expensive. Thanks for sharing these great savings.

  13. It’s time for me to get my eyes checked. I’ll remember this place if I need new glasses.

  14. Heather says:

    My glasses have seen better days. Although the prescription is still good, I need a new pair. This is a great resource.

  15. I love being able to save on then essentials. Thanks for sharing!

  16. Sounds like a great place to get prescription glasses! It’s not exactly cheap to get a pair of glasses so I’m glad that there’s a place where we can get it for a lower price!

    • Oh, I know! When my son was younger and we were having to replace his glasses all of the time I decided that we had to find another option. I’m so glad you can buy them online now at a lower cost. Surprisingly, he hasn’t damaged his glasses in years!

  17. Dana Rodriguez says:

    I am due for some new glasses. I am going to check them out!

  18. What a nice way to save a bit of money. Anymore it seems everyone needs some sort of eye correction, so this is almost always helpful.

  19. I think this is a great idea especially for a back up pair of glasses. I ordered two pairs online and the second pair wasn’t what I was expecting.

    • When my oldest was younger we always ordered him 2 pair at a time. You just never knew when he was going to leave them at school or break them (he was so rough on things!)

  20. Mary Edwards says:

    Never tried to purchase glasses online. I will have to check it out. I need an updated eye exam first.

  21. I’m that girl that would buy everything online if that was an option #millennialproblem. Looks like has an amazing selection to choose from.

  22. We don’t wear glasses at home so I really haven’t tried ordering it online but I’m taking your word for it. I will order online should the need to order glasses arrive.

    • That’s great that no one in your family needs glasses. Definitely keep this in mind though if ever the time comes when you need them.

  23. Just got my son’s eyes checked a few weeks ago and thankfully he doesn’t need glasses. I need to get myself a new pair of glasses.

    • That’s great news that he doesn’t need glasses. Definitely check out the site for glasses for yourself. They have so many cute pairs!

  24. My son needs to have the lenses of his glasses replaced. I think I will look into He is no longer a student, he’s done with school and is now undergoing certification training which takes up most of his day. I think ordering online would be the best route for him to take so get new lenses or a whole new pair.

    • Yes, that does sound like a great option for your son! I know, as a busy mom myself, that time is precious and I’m always happy when I find ways to save myself time and money!

  25. I feel lucky that my kids and I all have good eyesight. Glasses are not cheap at all and I love that there’s a site that we can rely on for affordable specs! This is going to help a lot of people.

  26. Dana Matthews says:

    This is nice to know. My daughter no longer has vision care insurance. She will need glasses again before a policy will go into effect. Thanks for sharing!
