My specs are varifocals. Has anyone had success in ordering them online? If so, which company did you use?

I used glasses direct for varifocals.
I was very happy with them.
You need an extra measurement called Pupillary distance or something which doesn't always appear on standard optician prescription

I have used glasses direct for about 3 years, both normal specs and prescription sunglasses. I cant fault them, service is great. I have had to send back a couple of times because I didnt like them and its just been very easy.

I subsequently had laser correction to mimic varifocals but you still need corrective glasses for night driving. GD reglazed my varifocals to new prescription

I wouldn't order the prescription glasses online, because you are not able to try them at purchase and if there is anything you'd like to get it fixed, you are unable to get it done, plus considering all the time it takes to go back and forth its worth having one from the local store.
