What can I do if my frames don't fit perfectly?
Call / E-mail within 14 days after you've received the glasses. If the frame is defective, we’ll replace it with a new pair. If you picked a frame that's too big or too small, you can come back for a new pair in the correct size or we can size and fit your frame perfectly.
Do you sell frames without lenses?
Yes, you can purchase frames only without prescription lenses. In the steps of Lens Selection select NON-PRESCRIPTION lenses. If you decide to purchase lenses later, you can send your frames back to us and we will add the prescription lenses to them.
What kind of frames are sold at Shop Eyeglasses Today?
Shop Eyeglasses today offers quality lenses that are checked for perfection at every step of our manufacturing process.
We offer full rim, semi-rimless, and rimless frames to fit every style and budget.
How do I know which lens material to choose?
Plastic lenses are recommended for light prescriptions, ranging from no correction to +/1.75.
Polycarbonate lenses are 30% thinner and lighter than plastic and recommended for people with prescriptions ranging from +/- 2.00 to +/-4.00. Polycarbonate is also recommended for children under 18 years of age and anyone who has an active lifestyle, due to its impact-resistance. Rimless and semi-rimless frames also work best with polycarbonate lenses.
1.67 Hi-Index lenses are 45% thinner than plastic lenses and help reduce the distortion of your eyes that people see when they look at you through your glasses. This lens material is recommended for people with prescriptions of +/- 2.00 and greater.
All of our lenses automatically come with a scratch-resistant coating and edge polishing. Other coatings can be added to your lenses for an additional fee
Anti-reflective (AR) coating is a clear coating that minimizes the glare on the front and back of your lenses. AR is a must-have on coating any pair of glasses, since it reduces eye fatigue.
Transitions® lenses automatically lighten and darken to adjust to outdoor light conditions. This option is ideal for people who do not want to constantly switch back and forth between their prescription eyeglasses and prescription sunglasses.
UV Protection is a clear coating that blocks the sun's harmful UV rays from reaching your eyes. UV protection is so important that we automatically include it with all polycarbonate and hi-index lenses as well as any plastic lenses that use other add-on coatings.
Do you offer glasses that turn into sunglasses outdoors?
YES! We offer photochromic lenses and premium Transitions™ Adaptive® lenses. First select your eyeglasses frames and then select
LIGHT ADJUSTING after you enter your prescription during lens selection. We also offer a Transitions Progressive bundle that makes check out a breeze when ordering the two together.
- PRESCRIPTIONS (RX) -
What is pupillary distance (PD) and how do I measure mine?
PD, or pupillary distance, is the distance in millimeters between the center of one pupil to the other measured in millimeters. Your PD is usually included in your prescription.
Pupillary distance (PD) is simply the distance (in millimeters) between the centers of your pupils. PD is important because it helps our lab figure out where the optical center of your lenses should be. Ask your eye doctor to include your PD when they write out your prescription. If your eye care professional cannot provide your PD, we can help you determine this measurement using our proprietary tools.
