Online shopping is the biggest boom of this century (well atleast I think so :P). It saves so much time and effort. Anything and everything is just a click away. I love online shopping, but haven’t been brave enough to buy things like eye glasses, lenses or sunglasses online. I always considered the conventional way more trustworthy in this case..as I would never buy eye glasses or sunglasses without trying them out…what if the size is too big, what if the frame doesn’t fit well or more importantly what if the glasses don’t suit my face?? However when I lost my sunglasses suddenly and had absolutely no time to wander into stores to find another one I decided to give Lenskart – a website dedicated to eye wear shopping, a try.
Now, for those of you, who do not know, lenskart.com is an online website for eyeglasses, sunglasses (even power sunglasses), lenses and prescription lens. Infact they also provide the service of home eye check up at minimal cost in all major cities across India.They have wide range of products from various brands all across the world. be it full rim, rimless, half rim or reading, you name it and you will find it here.I personally love their collection of cat eye frames, they are so trendy !!! Apart from that you can find aviators, oval, round, rectangle and wayfarer styles of frame too.
Anyways getting back to the my shopping experience, so after browsing through the site for an hour I manage to select Vincent Chase Tortoise Brown Brown Gradient Wayfarer Sunglasses. Now like I have mentioned before, I had lot of apprehension on ordering sunglasses online but lenskart had the solution to all my apprehensions.The site had detailed frame details about the sunglasses, bridge size, temple size and eye size, everything was clearly mentioned (If you do not know what it means, there are details regarding what these mean along with pictures for better understanding). Lenskart also gave me an option of trying on the glasses before purchasing – there are various pictures (all of different face styles & shapes) on which you can try the selected eye wear virtually, infact you can upload your own picture and see how it looks on you too. I love the fact, that the website had gone to great extent to help the customers clear all their doubts before making any purchase.
So once I ordered, I immediately received and email and sms confirmation of the same and where sent regular updates about the order processing,dispatch,shipping etc. It took about 5 days to get the product delivered including a weekend. (Hoping they can reduce this in near future). Anyways, I was extremely excited when the package arrived at my door. The product was well packed & sealed in a cardboard packaging and the sunglasses reached me without any damage (Yay!!). As far as quality is concerned, I am pretty happy with my sunglasses, though I can’t vouch for other products I am sure the website has strict standards as far as quality is concerned.
Overall, I am very pleased with my shopping experience at Lenskart. I love the way their site is designed, you can get all the information and even try the eye ware (virtually) before selecting the perfect one.Its a kudos from my side for this website.
