Eyeglass Lens Quality

Eyeglasses.com delivers custom lenses with the highest eyeglass lens quality standards, meeting or exceeding the industry standards. All of our lenses are made in our Essilor-partner lab. We never make or install glasses in-house like most of typical optical stores, because lab-quality lenses are much higher quality and have a much more consistent quality than lenses made in the back of an optical store. Essilor is the largest and highest quality lens maker in the world. We have also written an article about how eyeglass lenses are made.

Glass Eyeglass Lenses

In the past, eyeglass lenses had always been made with glass. With the advent of high quality plastics in the last 20 years, glass lenses have been replaced almost completely with plastic lenses. Glass lenses have a slightly better optical clarity than plastic lenses and do not scratch as easily. However, glass lenses can shatter and cause serious eye injury. We do offer glass eyeglass lenses which you can order through the Lens Wizard. Please allow 2-3 weeks for fabrication, due to the stringent U.S. government regulations.
