Ordering Frames and Lenses

All frames are available with clear prescription lenses, as prescription sunglasses, or as non-prescription sunglasses. You have the option of selecting your lens types, lens materials, tint colors, polarized lens colors, light adjusted (Transitions) lens colors, and anti reflective coatings. Our optics lab will craft your lenses to your prescription and lens options.

Ordering frames and lenses is normally done through the website. However, if you need some help, or have a question, please feel free to contact us. If you have just placed an order and realize you need to add or change something, please contact us as soon as possible. We'll be happy to review the order with you and make any adjustments needed.

What you will need:

1 - Your Frame Size

2 - Your PD (Pupillary Distance)

3 - Your Prescription

1) How To Find Your Frame Size

A. The easiest way to find your frame sizes is to look at the frames you already own.      Most manufactures write the frame size on the inside of the temple.

B. Try on some frames in a local store and note the frame size.

C. Measure your existing frames using a ruler in millimeter as in example below.

Frame Measurements

The examples below are for a frame size of 45-20-140

2) PD - Pupillary Distance

Pupillary Distance (PD) is the distance between the centers of the pupils in each eye measured in millimeters. This measurement is used when preparing to make prescription eyeglasses. Positioning lenses correctly in relation to the center of the pupils is especially important for higher powered lenses due to the location of the optical center of the lenses.

Obtaining Your PD

A - From Your Optometrist

Before you have your eyes examined, ask your Optometrist to provide you with your PD measurement. Note, the PD measurement is technically not part of your prescription, but a measurement for the purpose of creating eyeglass lenses, so you may be charged a small fee.

Most PDs are a single value and is entered into the form as a “Distance PD”. Under certain circumstances, your Optometrist may give you two PD's, one for each eye. This is called Monocular Distance PD and the measurement is taken from the bridge of the nose to the center of each pupil. In this case you would have a PD for the Right Eye and a PD for the Left Eye. Enter each value into the form for as indicated for “Two PDs”.

B - Measure Your PD Yourself.

You will need a ruler in mm (millimeters), a friend, or a mirror.

Average Pupillary Distance

    * 70mm Adult Male
    * 65mm Adult Female
    * 41mm Child, small
    * 55mm Child, large

1. Have your assistant line up the “0” line on the ruler with the center of your right
     pupil, then focus on a distant object, while your assist notes the reading, in millimeters,
     of the center of the left pupil.

2. In a mirror, line up the “0” line on the ruler with the center of your right pupil then
    use your right hand to mark the measurement at the center of your left pupil.

3. Enter the measurement into the “Distance PD” box on the form.
     The Distance PD is 65mm, in this example.

3) How To Obtain Your Prescription

To obtain your prescription you must have an eye exam from a licensed Optometrist.

1. Before your exam, ask your Optometrist to provide you with your PD (Pupillary Distance) measurement. If you were not provided with your PD, you can measure it yourself using the instructions above.

2. After the exam, ask your Optometrist to review your written prescription with you, to familiarize yourself with the abbreviations. Some of the blanks on the prescription form may not be filled in; that is fine, you should only need the information that is completed by your Optometrist. Also, ask for a recommendation on the type of Lenses (Single Vision, Progressive, Bifocal, etc...) and Lens Material (Plastic, Trivex, High Index, etc...) your Optometrist recommends for you based on your lifestyle and work.

Lens Types

Single Vision

Lenses have the same focal power throughout - top to bottom.

Single Vision HD

Fully individualized lens using High Definition 4-Axes Free-Form lens technology producing the ultimate Rx lens with a larger field of vision.

Progressive

Provide a smooth transition from distance correction to near correction, eliminating segment lines and allowing the viewing of all intermediate distances.

Bifocal Flat Top 28mm

The upper part of the lens is generally used for distance vision, while the lower part is used for near vision with a flat 28mm line separating the reading segment.

Bifocal Flat Top 35mm

The upper part of the lens is generally used for distance vision, while the lower part is used for near vision with a flat 35mm line separating the reading segment.

Bifocal RD 22mm

A Bifocal lens with a round 22mm reading segment - less visible in the lens.

Trifocal Flat Top 7x28

Similar to bifocals, except that the two focal areas are separated by a third middle area with intermediate focus correction with a 28mm line separating the reading segments on two parts.

Trifocal Flat Top 8x35

Similar to bifocals, except that the two focal areas are separated by a third middle area with intermediate focus correction with a 35mm line separating the reading segments on two parts.

Pupillary Distance (PD)

(PD) is the distance (measure in millimeters) between the centers of the pupils in each eye. This measurement is used when preparing to make prescription eyeglasses

PRISM

PRISM lenses are a specialty lens designed to reduce double vision.

Lens Materials

Plastic CR-39

Low cost scratch resistance plastics lens.

Trivex

Optically superior to Polycarbonate, with impact resistant, and inherent UV protection. Recommended for children & teenager's, and for rimless drillable frames.

Polycarbonate

25% thinner & lighter than normal plastic. Impact resistant. Recommended for children & teenager's, and for rimless drillable frames.

Mid Index 1.56

20% thinner & lighter than normal plastic. AR coating recommended.

High Index 1.6

30% thinner & lighter than normal plastic. Recommenced for rimless frames. AR coating recommended.

High Index 1.67

40% thinner & lighter than normal plastic. AR coating recommended.

High Index 1.74

Ultra thin. 50% thinner & lighter than normal plastic. AR coating recommended.

Lens Coatings

Anti Reflective (AR)

AR coatings eliminate reflective glare allowing people to see your eyes better and allowing you to see better with more light transmission through the lens. AR also reduces glare, reflections, improves night driving vision, and decreases eye strain. Recommended for all High Index lenses.

Super Hydrophobic AR

Super Hydrophobic AR coatings helps prevent water spots from forming and make lenses easier to clean.

Hydrophobic & Oleophobic AR

Hydrophobic & Oleophobic AR coatings helps prevent water spots from forming, repels skin oils, and makes it easier to remove smudges from the lenses.

Polarized

Increase color contrast and block blinding glare. Great for boaters and fishermen.

Light Adjusted

Activated by UV rays and sunlight. Clear indoors, automatically adjusting darker with changing light

Tint

Add style to your lenses with color.
