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 click on the product page and a new prescription page will open for you. On the prescription page choose the lens material, vision type, and any other options you desire for your new glasses. NOTE: 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 7-10 business days from the date the frame is in stock.
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.
When we make your new prescription lenses you automatically receive a 1 year lens warranty for a one-time replacement of your lenses, at no charge. Adding an Anti-Reflective coating will offer you an additional 1 year of coverage. This does not cover you for negligence against your lenses. NOTE: Warranty lens replacement is only for the original prescription used at the time of purchase.
If you receive your new prescription lenses and they are not correct in any way, we stand by our work, and will remake them for no charge within 30 days. This will not go against your warranty and additional shipping fees will not apply.
Single Vision: A regular vision that only has one focal point. Helps wearer to either see near or far but cannot do both.
- Nearsightedness (Myopia): A refractive disorder. In this condition, the eyeball is too long, meaning the eye cannot focus on faraway objects. It is commonly accepted that a combination of genetic and environmental factors play a role. Nearsightedness is much easier to correct through refractive surgery than farsightedness. Most ocular surgeons agree that due to the nature of the surgery, most patients need reading glasses past the age of 40.
- Farsightedness (Hyperopia): It is the opposite of nearsightedness. The eyeball is too short and cannot focus on near objects. Unlike nearsightedness, it generally believed that only a person's genetics determine whether he or she will develop this condition. Corrective lenses are the most common treatment.
Bifocal (Presbyopia): The lens is divided into two segments which offers distance viewing on the top and near vision on the smaller lower segment. You can see visible lines depicting the division of sight distance.
Progressive: Also known as trifocal, no-line bifocal, PAL or multifocal lenses. Offers the same functionality of a bifocal lens but allows smoother transition between the focal points. No visible line to separate the different prescription.
Plano (Non-RX): These lenses have no degree. They're basically just clear Plastic, Polycarbonate or Trivex lenses. Used in accessory glasses or in one side of glasses where the wearer only has bad eyesight in the other eye.
Plastic Lens: Plastic Lens or CR-39 have a refractive index of 1.53. It has comparable scratch resistance to glass and offers a low price solution for prescription lenses. We use a high quality Essilor lens for standard plastic progressive prescriptions or upgrade to a Varilux Physio or Shamir lens for a wider field of vision.
Polycarbonate Lens: Polycarbonate Lenses have a refractive index of 1.59. It is 35% thinner and 45% lighter and flatter than plastic lenses. It is 10 times more impact resistant and three times more scratch resistant than plastic. 100% UVA/UVB Protection. Ideal for rimless, drill mount frames and highly active people. We use a high quality Essilor lens for standard polycarbonate progressive prescriptions or upgrade to a Varilux Physio or Shamir lens for a wider field of vision.
Trivex Lens: Trivex Lenses have a refractive index of 1.54 and are ultra lightweight. It has similar impact resistance to polycarbonate but is more scratch resistant. 100% UVA/UVB Protection. Ideal for drill mount frames and highly active people. We use a high quality Essilor lens for standard Trivex progressive prescriptions or upgrade to a Varilux Physio or Shamir lens for a wider field of vision.
High Index Lens: High Index lenses represent the latest lens technology available today, it enhancing cosmetic appearance and offering perceived added value. High Index lenses reduce the thickness and weight of an eyeglass lens, particularly for individuals with a strong prescription. We use Varilux Physio lenses for ALL High Index progressive prescriptions unless requested otherwise.
Varilux Physio Lenses: Varilux Physio lenses will provide wearers with superior visual sharpness, much wider fields of vision and greater visual and postural comfort. High Resolution Vision will also be maintained whatever the situation and the lighting conditions. All Varilux Physio lenses are available with eyecode, resulting in lenses being more optically precise and offering instant and effortless vision.
Varilux S Design Lenses: BRAND NEW! Varilux S series is the new Varilux premium range of varifocal lenses that provide Unlimited Vision whatever the situation. If you already wear varifocal lenses you'll appreciate that no matter how much your glasses improve your vision there are some limitations. You may notice a swimming effect at the sides of your lenses or have a narrower field of vision than you would like. The Varilux S series range is the first and only varifocal lens that eliminates theses annoying constraints, giving you ultimate vision with no compromise! Currently only available for progressive Plastic, Polycarbonate and High Index 1.67 Lenses.
Anti-Reflective Coating: Recommended with every prescription. Anti-Reflective 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.
