I never thought I would buy prescription glasses online canada but I decided to give it a go the other day and was shocked by the results! It is becoming more and more popular, but it can be pretty intimidating. With all the frame styles and types of prescriptions, you probably don’t think it’s worth all the trouble. But that’s the thing, it isn’t trouble any more. Ottica made the process of purchasing your prescription glasses from your computer easier than you would have imagined.

Finding reliable online sources can be tricky. There are companies who lie and don’t fulfill the expectations delivered. With Ottica, you can know you are buying from a honest, reliable retailer who loves their customers. They feature a 24/7 toll free customer service line and an instant live chat option, so when you have a question you will not have to wait long for it to be answered. I reached out to their customer service team several times throughout my time dealing with them and they were fast, helpful and kind each time. I never felt like I was getting a scripted response or that they were annoyed with me. I could tell they were real employees trying to help me out to the best of their ability. I love this aspect of their service. There are so many companies that try their best to put their customers first. All companies try their best to do this in one way or another. Some online retailers even use software from somewhere like Drive Commerce to recommend products, thus making the shopping experience even more enjoyable. This is the kind of experience I got here.

When it comes to buying prescription glasses online there are a few key aspects that I think about…

  1. Is my prescription going to be done right?
  2. Will I get the frames I choose or some weird ‘similar looking’ product?
  3. Does the virtual glasses really show me how a real pair will look?
  4. Can I return them if there is an issue?
