Replace Your Prescription Eye Glasses

You have this great set of eye glasses. But your prescription has changed or the lenses are scratched or you want a new lens material or look. But you love your frames, what do you do? You replace your eyeglass lenses.

Replacing Eye Glass Lenses – How To

We can’t tell you what the local eye care store will say about replacing eyeglass lenses only. Most stores are likely going to want to have you sit down for a new exam or try and sell you a new frame. Basically, get you to buy new eye glasses. Remember, the markup on frames is huge that’s where the money’s buried.

Your time is money, too and the price of gas isn’t exactly cheap, either, so before schlepping around half the globe, pick up the phone. Call the local places, especially your personal eye care professional. If they sold you the frames, they’d like to keep you as a customer. Find out the cost and how long it will take. If it is reasonable, then by all means use them. It’s great to have someone local that will offer you the customer service you deserve. But what if it isn’t?

Big box and mall stores don’t care if you’re local. They may not care to replace eye glass lenses only. As we said, the money’s in the frames and they want to make money. If you call around - please don’t drive around – and you can’t find anyone local who will replace eyeglass lenses for a reasonable price, then it’s onto the Internet.

The Internet can be a frightening spot and many people would rather not deal with a mysterious person lurking inside their monitor. But, many times, it is point, click and done. Saves on time and money driving, standing in line and waiting.

Many Internet eye glasses purveyors will replace eyeglass lenses. We’ll spare you the usual diatribe about Internet security and making sure you’re dealing with someone reputable. But if you feel any twinge of doubt, pick up the phone and call them. Make sure you understand the process.

Here’s How Replacing Lenses for Eye Glasses Online Works:

You pick out the lenses you want. You fill out a form informing them of your choice and of your prescription. They may also be able to read the prescription from the eye glasses but why take the chance. You mail the frames to them.

Here’s where there’s an issue. Mailing will take time. Speedy delivery will cost money. You have to decide. And it will take a good week after they arrive to get them back. But you mail them and wait.

Expect a working week before they send them back. It may or may not be free and it is likely going to be three days or longer of shipping time. If you need the glasses sooner than a two week process, look for an alternative, including picking up a cheap pair online.

Replacing eyeglass lenses in many ways works against the grain of the industry. They want to sell you a new pair of glasses and would love to dock you for another exam. However, many local eye care professionals appreciate repeat business and will likely be happy to help you. If not, there’s always the Internet and the only issue dealing with them is time.

You have this great set of eye glasses. But your prescription has changed or the lenses are scratched or you want a new lens material or look. But you love your frames, what do you do? You replace your eyeglass lenses.
