Site Spotlight: Glasses.com

(Source: Glasses.com; Ray-Ban Frames, $170)An online gem for those with less-than-perfect vision, Glasses.com was launched in 2011 by its sight-enhancing predecessor, 1-800-Contacts. The online shop carries frames by brands such as Chloé, Derek Lam, Ralph Lauren and Ray-Ban, all of which Glasses.com fills with free prescription lenses.

Browsing is simplified with frames grouped into style categories such as Timeless, Geek Chic and Retro/Vintage. To boot, if you’re in the market for new specs or shades (an extensive selection of prescription and non-prescription sunglasses is available, too) you can see how the pairs you’re considering look on you, thanks to the Glasses.com app.

Once the image is saved, you can virtually try on any of the site's 2,000-plus pairs of frames and see how they look from every angle. And since buying new glasses is a process often rife with indecision, the app allows you to share your bespectacled image with friends via email or on Facebook or Twitter.
