64% of US adults wear prescription eyewear. That means every 1 to 3 years, over a hundred million Americans replace their glasses. Buying new glasses can cost hundreds of dollars. Did you know there’s an easy way to save money on glasses? Keep your frames and buy replacement lenses.

Replacement lenses are exactly what they sound like. Whenever old lenses wear out or a prescription changes, you don’t have to break out Benjamins. You can buy new lenses for a fraction of the cost of new glasses. With your savings on frames, you can make additional investments into the latest glasses tech. For example, bifocals have 2 lens segments to support reading and distance vision. If you have a strong prescription, high-index lenses support your needs at a fraction of the weight.

Buying replacement lenses is easy. All you have to do is ship your frames and prescription information to the lens lab. There, new lenses are created and fitted to your frames. Once the new lenses are installed, your ready to wear frames are shipped back to you. The whole process can take as little as 5 days. Starting today, upgrading your prescription won’t require upgrading your whole look.
