Steps To Use Lenskart’s Virtual AR Tool
To start using this feature, all you need to do is download the Lenskart App on your device if you haven’t yet. The next steps are as easy as 1-2-3, literally!
Click on the ‘Try our Virtual AR Experience’ banner
Clicking the banner will turn on your front camera and you will notice a face scanner. All you need to do is, follow the instructions, and ensure that your face is aligned within the frame. Once you’ve got that right, simply click on the circular button on the screen to capture the image. Make sure you aren’t wearing any glasses during the entire process.
The second and the most crucial stage of this tool is face analysis. Once you’ve completed step number one, the tool scans the image you clicked, in order to identify your face shape and width. Based on the data received, it recommends frame shapes that will best suit your face shape and size.
Imagine doing this at a store, frame by frame! It’s the exact experience that has been virtually designed with this augmented reality tool. It’s so quick and accurate that we’re simply speechless!

Lenskart’s Virtual AR Experience- Editors’ Reviews
Finding the right pair of glasses at the comfort of my home? I’ll take it! The virtual AR feature on the Lenskart app is not just convenient and helpful but super fun to use. It is also user-friendly, no doubt! As I opened the tool, it detected my face shape and suggested a range of frames. It’s like a personal stylist! The best part? I got to see how amazing each frame (including the color variants) looked on me and the individual price. If I loved it, I could buy it at that moment, and if I liked it, I could add it to my favorites to compare my options. How cool! This feature did not limit me to shop from the recommended list only but gave me the freedom to make my own choice. Thanks to the filters I could select the price range, the frame size, frame shape and style, and voila, customized options at just a click of a button. I love this feature because I don’t have to visit the store to understand what frame style suits me, especially during COVID-19. It’s a must-try!
This is the best thing I’ve come across so far! This tool is so easy to use like I mentioned several times already. The instructions are crisp and clear so there’s no way you can get confused. My face is round and the face scanner got that on point, I was quite impressed with how quickly and accurately it got the details correct. Talking about the frame recommendations, it completely blew my mind away, there was so much to pick from, all of which looked amazing on me! The tool detects and reflects the price of each frame you try along with its colorful variants, which is quite cool TBH. To sum it up – I personally loved every feature of this tool and would highly recommend everyone to try it out.
