Everyday Problems Sorted!

Q. I need new glasses but have no idea which ones suit me - and there's too much choice at my opticians. Any suggestions?
A. A new website called eyeBuddy (www.eyebuddy.co.uk) allows you to try on frames virtually (log in required). Not only will you be able to see which glasses suit you but you'll also get a perfect fit. "Until now, online companies have 'guesstimated' the distance between your pupils (PD) which ensures best fit," says eyeBuddy's Mary Jane Greenhalgh. Opticians measure PD, but may leave it off a prescription or charge up to £100 for it. EyeBuddy's high-tech system can accurately measure PD on a photograph of your face. Just upload a photo, then select and drop on different styles until you find the perfect pair. There are over 20,000 styles to choose from - and advice on glasses to suit your face shape.
