Warby Parker has added a “virtual try-on” feature to its iPhone app.

It allows users to see what frames would look like on them using augmented reality, Wired reports.

The system relies on Apple’s face-mapping technology. It uses the iPhone’s front-facing camera.

Wired reports that the feature gives you a preview in “impressive detail.”

The feature has been a long time in the making.

Warby Parker also offers a mail-order service in which customers can receive five frames to try for free before making a purchase.
