Progressive Rx Lenses

Progressive Rx Lenses

Progressive lenses correct for both your distance and your reading vision, and feature an intermediary correction in the transitional region.

To correct for presbyopia (a condition where the eye has trouble focusing on objects up close), we offer progressive lenses in place of bifocals or trifocals. Progressive lenses have a distance correction in the top half and a reading correction in the bottom half of the same lens, with an intermediate region in between. Over the years, progressives have replaced bifocals and trifocals as the lens of choice for multifocal prescriptions, as they offer a seamless transition from distance to near vision. We feature free–form high–definition progressive lenses that are made with computer–controlled surfacing equipment for the highest precision. These lenses also feature an algorithmically–determined segment height to ensure you have the widest field of vision at each focal point in the lens. Similar to our single–vision lenses, these lenses are highly shatter-proof and feature anti-scratch, anti-glare, and UVA/UVB protective coatings.

Single Vision Rx Lenses

Single Vision Rx Lenses

Single-vision lenses correct for either your distance or your reading vision and maintain the same prescription throughout the entire lens.

Single-vision prescription lenses are for people who need to correct one field of vision, either distance or near. Using the highest–quality CR–39 and polycarbonate lenses, we can fill prescriptions between -10.00 and +6.00 sphere, or up to +/-4.00 cylinder. Our CR–39 and polycarbonate lenses are lightweight, shatter-resistant, and feature anti-reflective, anti-scratch, and UVA/UVB protective coatings. Prescriptions milder than +/-2.00 sphere are made with CR–39 lenses – which have outstanding visual acuity – while all other prescriptions are made with polycarbonate lenses – which are thinner for stronger prescriptions.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Prescriptions and Rx Information

arrow

I want to buy some Classic Specs prescription glasses, but I can’t remember the last time I went to the eye doctor. Do you have an optometrist on staff?

At this time we do not have an optometrist on staff, but we can recommend several optometrists within walking distance of our showrooms, located in Brooklyn and Los Angeles.

What is my PD, and how do I get it?

Your PD is the distance between your pupils in millimeters, and it allows us to align your prescription perfectly with your unique eyes. The last optician who made glasses for you will have your PD on file – and don’t worry, it doesn’t change over time or expire. You can also have your PD measured in an instant in our showroom, or by your eye doctor.

When I was entering my prescription online, I noticed the price went up. What just happened?

You’ve been automatically upgraded to high index lenses! Some prescription are really strong, so we add ultra-thin and ultra-light lenses to your order to keep your lenses from getting too thick. High index also help to prevent the ”magnifying glass“ effect created by thicker lenses. They cost $30 more per pair.

I have a strong prescription, and I need thinner lenses. Do you offer those?

Yep, absolutely we do! We offer thinner, lighter lenses, called High Index Lenses (pl 1.67). We recommend them for all customers with strong prescriptions. They cost $30 more per pair.

What’s the strongest prescription that you can fill?

The highest prescription we recommend filling in sunwear is a +/-6 sphere. We can fill stronger prescriptions, but the lenses can get pretty thick.

What kind of lenses and AR coating do you use?

Our lenses are made from CR-39, an optical plastic with incredible visual acuity, thermoset monomers are one of the most shatter-resistant materials on earth! On top of that, every single pair of our lenses includes free anti-reflective, anti-scratch, and UV coatings.

Do you offer bifocal or progressive lenses?

Yes! We offer free-form HD progressive lenses. These lenses are made with the latest in precision computerized surfacing equipment for the greatest clarity and most accurate prescription. Progressive lenses and frames start at $275 and include free shipping anywhere in the United States (included HI and AK).

My prescription includes prisms, can you fill it?

Prism prescriptions are for sensitive eyes, and reducing muscular strain - They're best filled in person. We would recommend that you purchase our frames without lenses for $80.00 and then bring them to your optometrist to have your prescription filled.
