What happens if the lenses and frames I pick out are not compatible?

When you place your order, we do not charge your credit card, we just authorize it.  Your order is reviewed by customer service.  If we have any questions or see any problems or incompatibility in your order, you will be contacted within one business day of receiving your order.  If everything looks good, we will not contact you until we ship your glasses, at which point we will send you an email with a tracking number, and we will charge your credit card at that time.

Is their someone on your site who will advise new customers on the best selection for their needs?

Yes.  In fact, we urge you to call customer service with any questions.  We can help you find the best frames and lenses for your unique circumstances.

How do I get the right frame size for my face?

We have written a whole article on this topic (Link: eyeglasses size).  In short, use your current glasses as a benchmark for new glasses.

How are the eyeglasses adjusted for a customer's use?

We have written a whole article on this topic too (Link: Adjusting eyeglasses).  In short, if an adjustment is needed, you cn learn to do it yourself, or take it to a local optical shop and pay them a small fee to adjust the glasses.

How do I send you my prescription?

By phone, fax, email, upload to website, letter, telegram, telex, or carrier pigeon...whatever is easiest for you.  However, be sure to place your order first, or, call customer service to do it all at once.

I wear contacts (for 20 years now) the RX for them is: +150 for each eye. I live on a fixed income (Medicare) and want to order glasses on line, how do I figure out what the RX for glasses should be?
