Prescription FAQ

What material are the prescription lenses made out of?
Our prescription lenses are made from a polycarbonate material, that is up to 10x stronger than standard quality lenses.
 
What are High Index 1.67 lenses?
High Index 1.67 lenses have the most clarity out of any lens and can be up to 40% thinner than polycarbonate lenses. Typically you want High Index lenses when your prescription is ±4.00 or higher. Although, you can order High Index lenses with any prescription if you want the sharpest clarity available.
 
How do I add on Anti-Reflective and Anti-Scratch to my glasses?
All of our prescription lenses come with Anti-Reflective and Anti-Scratch included. We want you to have the best eyeglasses available.
 
Do we make prescription sunglasses?

What is Pupillary Distance (PD)?
Your PD is the measurement in millimeters of the distance between your pupils. This measurement is for the optical lab to align your prescription perfectly for your eyes. 
 
What if I don’t have a prescription?
If you don’t have a prescription, you can always just call a local optometrist and schedule an eye exam. Once they give you a prescription, you can choose whichever glasses you like on our website and upload the prescription to your order. Once you have done that, we will be sending your glasses with your prescription lenses directly to your door.
 
Do I need a prescription to order glasses?
You don’t need a prescription to order eyeglasses. If you want clear lenses without a prescription, you can just put that in the notes when you order. Or, you can email us the prescription later. 
 
How long does it take to get my prescription glasses?
If you live in the US, it should take you about 7-10 days to get your prescription glasses.
 
What if I have an astigmatism?
