We offer the finest high quality lens technology available today. All of our prescription lab work is done through Essilor, the world's leader in ophthalmic lenses.
We have made adding your prescription lenses into your new frames very easy. Simply choose what type of lens material, vision type, and any other options you desire for your new glasses. You must add both your frame and your prescription to the shopping bag separately.
At the very end of the checkout you will have a chance to input your prescription or once we process your order you will receive an email requesting for it to be emailed or faxed to us. Your prescription must include your O.D. (Right Eye), O.S. (Left Eye) and PD (Pupillary Distance). Lab work typically takes one week from the date the frame is in stock. If you decide to have your local optician do your prescription please be sure they are familiar with that particular designers frame; edge work is different per frame.
We understand the value of your new look and vision, if you prefer you can always contact us to speak to an optician over the phone. We want you to be as comfortable with your decision as possible.
**If you have any special requests regarding the lenses in your new frames or if you desire a specific brand of lenses please do not hesitate to ask. We work closely with our lab technicians and they can do practically anything with a lens.

AR Coating: Recommended with every prescription. Anti-Relfective Coating decreasing reflection and even makes frames aesthetically look better. It helps produce less glare, which is particularly noticeable when driving at night or working in front of a computer monitor. The decreased glare means that wearers often find their eyes are less tired, particularly at the end of the day. Allowing more light to pass through the lens also increases contrast and therefore increases visual acuity. Choosing any of our AR Coatings will also provide you with a 2 year lens warranty. We suggest Crizal AR Coatings as they are the best in the industry. To see the different benefits of each Crizal coating click HERE.
