I have a sunglass frame and I want to use it for new prescription lenses. [Back to Top]

We can usually accommodate these requests if the frame is relatively new and in good condition and your correction power accomodates the shape and size of the sunglasses.  We need to know the type of lens and lens tint you are interested in having created for the frame, and then we need to receive the frame via mail.  The final decision on whether the frame is in good enough condition for the new lenses rests with the prescription lab.

You can order the lenses online.  Please call or write if you have questions about the type of lenses necessary for your frame.

Is more than one pair of glasses really necessary? [Back to Top]
One pair of glasses can't do it all.  Even if your primary pair of glasses is photochromic, it's helpful to have sunglasses for the car because when you drive into the sun, windshields block the UV rays that darken photochromic lenses.  Simply put, in this situation sunglasses are your best choice.  Occupational safety glasses, computer glasses, and specialized sports glasses can also all be invaluable.  Again, it all depends on the activities you are involved in.
