SmartBuyGlasses Review – Tips To Choose Sunglasses Online

If you’ve seen our social media feed or any pictures on the blog you might easily figure out how much I love shades and I can never get enough of it. I would like to confess that I have a very bad habit of sneaking at least 4-5 shades in my travel bag when we travel.  Recently we were contacted by SmartBuy Glasses to pick shades from their collection and with no second thought, I picked my favorite Ray-Ban sunglasses.

In India, most of the time we do lack bountiful options when it comes to shades of different brands. Neither we do have a website selling all international brands nor do we get all brands available in shops. So, if you are anything like me and love flaunting shades on your travel then do give a look at SmartBuyGlasses website. They ship worldwide and oh boy!! They have over 180 brands and 80,000 products to choose from.

There are tons of options in their repository to choose from, starting from Prada to Tom Ford. I picked my favorite RayBan round ones and the hexagonal ones which are in trend. I was a little skeptical initially if it will fit me well or not. But the 360-degree video and the virtual try ON helped me to finalize my pick.

After reading the descriptions on the right-hand side, I opted for RayBan Round and RayBan Hexagonal Metal Flat Lens. Hexagonal ones are my current favorite and I am loving it. The sizes are clearly mentioned so make sure you choose the right one that enhances your look and personality.

The best feature that I liked about the website was an option to buy with prescriptions. Perfect for those who wear glasses all the time. You can choose from distance, reading, progressive and can upload, send or enter the details manually before ordering.


We received the order in a week’s time and they came in the same packaging as you get when you buy from any authorized shop. It came with the warranty card, product manual, and cleaning cloth all neatly packed in the carrying case. Overall, it was a satisfying experience, am sure am gonna order few more in the coming days. I do have an eye on few sunglasses from Quay Australia.

Sharing with you some tips to choose Sunglasses Online

Figure out the shape of your face — whether it is Oval, Round, Square or heart shape.

Shades these days come in various shapes and sizes — Round, Aviators, Wayfarers, Oversized, Cat eye, Shield. Pick the right style that fits you well and suits you.

Check the measurements & product descriptions ( Frame Size & Shape ). Polarized and anti-reflective sunglasses are good for protecting your eyes from harmful sun rays.

Make sure to check the material as well – Lens Material & Lens Tint

Last but not the least read reviews of other customers.

    This sounds perfect for me! I usually dislike buying new sunglasses because my face is a strange shape and lots of glasses look weird and really big on me. I bought my first pair of sunglasses more than 10 years ago and I’m still wearing them now. I’ll try this out.

    Love companies that also have a great cause behind them. I am always looking for the perfect shades and will love to give them a try. I like the option of virtual try on as I am always hesitant to purchase online as I do not know how it will look on me. Thanks for this great recommendation will give them a try.

    Great guide! I always get polarized, uva and uvb protected lenses since I love the rest outdoors!

    Fun shades! I love wearing sunglasses all the time and rarely go outside without a pair. I usually have to buy cheaper sunglasses because I’m so rough with them. I usually go through a pair a year! It’s really cool that this company has a pretty cool mission about donating a pair of glasses for every one purchased.

    It was a great time to come across this because my fake Ray Bans broke this morning and was looking for a place to buy them online. I also have a wide head, so it’s difficult to find ones that really fit mine well. I’ll definitely be looking at this guide if I buy them online and can’t try them on beforehand. They definitely look good in your photos!

    Interesting article as i always struggle to find the right sunglasses for my face. I must confess that I always buy the cheap ones though, as I or my son will accidentally brake them and that would be a waste if I would have the ‘real’ ray bans 😉

    This is so helpful. I’ve never bought sunglasses online because I felt like I needed to see them on first. But now I can buy online with confidence. Some really cute sunnies here. Plus, I love companies that do good.
