Do the glasses come with a hard case?Yes, all glasses come with a hard case!
How do I get my prescription?
You can get your prescription one of two ways. Visit your ophthalmologist or optometrist for both an eye exam or to get your prescription. They should provide you with a written copy of your prescription and you can always ask for one if they do not give one to you. Second you can also provide us with the Dr.’s office information and we will call to get your prescription for you. Please also request to have your PD (pupillary distance) measured and written on your prescription. Your PD is very important for us to make sure your eyeglasses fit you perfectly.
What if I don’t know my Pd?
Pupillary Distance, measures the distance between your pupils and is crucial to center the lenses correctly. You can ask your Dr. for your PD or it can be measured easily. Take a mm stick and place one end where your pupil is and measure from pupil to pupil, it will be easier to have a friend hold the mm stick and measure while you’re looking straight. If you’re still having trouble then please contact us and we can help.
Can I use my Flex Spending Account?
Absolutely! We just ask that you call in your payment rather than purchase online.

For your convenience we have standard CR-39 plastic lenses that weight half the amount of glass lenses. Standard Polycarbonate lenses are lighter than plastic and thinner also for those with a little stronger prescription.

Some of our smaller frames can accommodate stronger prescriptions; please call us to discuss your best options for frames.
Can I use Contact lens prescription to order glasses?
Contact lenses and eyeglass prescription lenses are different. Because contacts sit on your eyes while eyeglasses sit in front of your eyes, the prescription may appear similar but they differ in strengths and are not interchangeable. For your safety we cannot and will not use your contact lens prescription to make your glasses.
