What are Progressive 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.


Prescriptions and Rx Information

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.

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 use our handy PD ruler, or by your eye doctor.

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 $60 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 polycarbonate, an optical polymer that is strong and impact resistant. 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 $289 and include free shipping anywhere in the United States (including HI and AK).

My prescription includes prisms, can you fill it?

Unfortunately we don't offer a prism correction at this time. We would love to hear from you about this. Email to share your thoughts.
