I tried the Home Try-On twice and would have probably tried a few more times because I'm someone who likes to take my time and research all my options before I make a decision (let's be real, it's called 'being indecisive'). But when I was in San Francisco, I realized there was a brick and mortar location and decided to go for a visit. The staff were very friendly, not pushy, and gave their honest opinions when it came to what frames suited me best. Once I decided on my frames, I showed them a copy of my prescription, they measured my pupillary distance (PD), I paid, and soon received my new glasses in the mail.
- The Home Try-On is free and you can try it out as many times as you'd like.
- Affordable frames with many styles to choose from.
- Even if your prescription is strong and you require high-index lenses (to avoid the coke bottle look), the extra cost is not much more.
- You purchase a pair, someone in need also gets a pair (love this!).
- Many locations in major cities across the U.S.
- If you don't live near a WP location, finding a local retail store willing to fit your frames may be difficult.
- Again, if you don't live near a WP location, you must obtain your PD from your eye doctor and some may charge you for this info (plus side: WP will reimburse you up to $50).
- All or some of the price of a pair of glasses may be covered by your vision insurance coverage.
- If you find a local optical shop willing to help fit your WP frames and they charge a fee, WP will reimburse you up to $50.
