Little things mean a lot right now (how excited do you get when the mail arrives? See?). And while we can’t do all of our self-care favorites—get a massage at a spa, say, or go shopping IRL—we can get new glasses. An array of online retailers makes it easy.

Warby Parker even offers a handy Home Try-On service—simply select five frames to test out for five days and the retailer will ship them to you—for free! Prefer contacts? Check out the new Scout by Warby Parker daily contact lenses, too.

If you’re on the market for a fresh set of prescription frames, you’ll find fabulous, flattering options below—and all are under $100.

Get ready for a raft of compliments at next week’s Zoom meeting. You’re about to look mah-velous.
