Buying online

Is it time to get new glasses? Learning how to buy glasses online is easy. From finding the frames that will fit you best to entering the key details for your prescription, our guide will help you through every step.

Step 1

Choose your frames

Now it is even easier to choose your frames with virtual try on and recommendations. Simply click the ‘Virtual Try On’ button, and follow the prompts to visualize the selected frame on your face. Our Virtual Try On tool works best on iPhone X or newer iPhone models.

Step 2

Enter your prescription and measurements

You will need a copy of your prescription to buy glasses online. If you don’t know your prescription or if it has expired you can book an appointment online.

You will also need to measure your pupillary distance. Find out how.

When you’re buying glasses online, it’s also important to have your glasses measurements on hand. Knowing the measurements of your current glasses will help find the perfect fit for your next pair. Just take a look at the temple arm of your existing pair of eyeglasses or sunglasses to find the right figures.

Only single vision near or distance glasses can be purchased online. If you need progressive glasses, please contact your local Bailey Nelson store.

We also sell non-prescription clear lenses. Simply select ‘Non-prescription’ to buy glasses or sunglasses without a prescription. Please note you cannot claim non-prescription glasses using your health benefits.

Step 3

Choose your lenses

Next select the lens options and treatments to enhance your glasses.

Step 4


Once you’re happy with your order you can proceed to payment. Your glasses will then be custom made to order and delivered for free over $99. Orders usually take 15-20 business days to be delivered. Your new glasses will arrive ready to be slipped on and enjoyed!

If you have health benefits, you can claim your purchase via your health benefit's claims process once you've completed your purchase. Learn more about using your health insurance benefits here.
