How do I see what I've ordered in the past?

Readers.com changed its name in March 2013. We were formerly known as ReadingGlassesShopper.com. If you placed an order prior to March 19, 2013, you will not have a saved account with us. Just contact Customer Service, and we can share with you all previous orders. Once you create a login now, all orders you place online will be shown once you log in to your account. If you have created a login after March 19, 2013, and you are having difficulty logging in, please click here and enter your information.

How do I change or modify my order before it ships?

If you have made a mistake when placing your order, this is typically not a problem, but please call us right away. We do ship our orders quickly, so please do not hesitate! We are available by phone Monday-Friday from 9:00 am-6:00 pm ET.

How long does it take to ship my order?

All orders placed before 2:00 pm ET Monday-Friday will be shipped from our warehouse on the day the order is placed.* If you order after 2:00 p.m. ET on Friday, or anytime Saturday, Sunday, or on a holiday, your order will ship the following business day. For First-Class Mail shipping, orders take about 3-5 business days total for delivery. To see shipping estimates for other methods, and for complete details, please visit our Shipping Information page.

In addition, all items in your order will ship together if leaving from our warehouse.

Can I pick my order up from your warehouse?

We do offer an order "Pick-Up" option on the checkout page. All orders can be picked up at our front desk Monday-Friday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. If you order before 2:00 p.m. ET Monday-Friday, your order can be picked up between 3:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. that same day. Please note that we will need an electronic or printed version of your email confirmation to authorize your pick-up.

The pick-up address is: 1300 Windhorst Way, Ste A, Greenwood, IN, 46143.

How do I know if these glasses will fit me?

Our sizes describe the measurement from hinge to hinge. To find out which measurement is right for you, grab a measuring tape and measure the width of your face from one temple to the other. You may also measure a pair of glasses you currently own, and then compare that size to pairs you like on Readers.com.

  • Very Narrow 123mm or less
  • Narrow 124mm-129mm
  • Average 130mm-136mm
  • Wide 137mm-140mm
  • Very Wide 141mm or more

We do personally measure all our glasses, and each pair of glasses is available in only one size: small, medium, or wide. Once you click on a pair you like, you will see Item Details to the right of the glasses image. Just below the Item Details you will see the dimensions. For example, if the glasses say Medium Fit, they will come in that one size only. You may filter your product selections on the category pages at any time by selecting your size in the filtering options located on the left-hand side of the screen.

For more information on glasses parts, including where the hinges on your glasses are located, take a look at our Glasses Diagram.

Why are the readers I want only available in a limited quantity?

In order to bring you the lowest prices possible, we buy our reading glasses in bulk based on power. Because of this, our vendors aren't always able to supply us with a balanced shipment of colors and styles within each power. If you would like to order a style of readers in a specific power, color, and quantity, please contact us with this information and we will do our very best to fulfill your request!

I don't see my favorite pair of glasses on your website. How can I tell if they're in stock?

Our website is updated by the minute when items sell. If you do not see your glasses in your favorite power and color, this means they're not available. If you would like to be notified when the item is back in stock, please click here to send us an email. Please be sure to include the name of the glasses, color, and power you need.

You should have received an email notification once your package shipped. If you did not receive the email, please contact us.

Do your glasses come with a case?
