Finding the perfect frame usually involves trying on several different pairs of glasses, but traveling to an eye center can sometimes be a hassle. Fortunately, technology steps in to save the day with Illinois Eye Center’s new Virtual Try-on.
Virtual Try-On lets you see how you would look in different eyeglasses frames, and is as easy as looking in a mirror. Illinois Eye Center offers two try-on options that allow you to “try on” glasses from the comfort and convenience of your own home.
- Live Try-On: Advanced technology converts your computer camera into a virtual mirror, making it easy to see how various frames will look on you. You can even turn and tilt your head to see how they look as you move naturally.
- Photo Try-On: Try on frames using your own photo. Simply upload a face selfie and match it up with different frame options. For best result, upload a clear photo that uses natural lighting.
Browse through the frames catalog and click on a pair you like. Next, choose whether you would prefer the Live Try-on or the Photo Try-on and follow the simple instructions.
When you find a pair of frames you like, save them to your wishlist by clicking on the heart appearing to the upper right of the desired frames. Continue browsing and saving several pairs so that you have a wide variety of frames to try on. Once you have “favorited” your top picks, click on the heart located in the top right corner of the frames catalog. The number to the left of the heart shows how many pairs you have favorited.
Next, send your preferences to Illinois Eye Center by clicking into your wishlist. Click the email icon under “Share My Wishlist,” click “Send your selection to the optician,” fill in your email address and add your name to the message field. Be sure to add any comments you would like to send before clicking the “Send” icon. Let us know when you visit our Optical Boutique that you send us your wishlist so we can pull those frames for you!
