How to order online spectacles from Webglasses

All you need to do to place an order with WebGlasses is follow our Three Simple Steps.

1. Obtain a current spectacle prescription from your local optometrist

Make an appointment to have your eyes tested and request a copy of your prescription. By law, the optometrist must provide you with a clear, readable copy of the prescription when requested, at no additional cost. Alternatively, you can use a previous prescription that is less than 2 years old.

How to Read your Spectacle Prescription

A prescription is made up of a number of parts. Sph or sphere is usually the first number and will either have a plus sign (+) or a minus sign (-). On some prescriptions there will also be a cyl or cylinder component. This is usually a number with a minus sign (-) and an axis (number 0 to 180 with an "x" preceding it). For people who require a reading prescription, there may also be an 'add' which is usually a number with a plus sign between +0.75 to +3.00. Except for the axis, all other numbers will end in either "00", "25", "50" or "75".
