What You Should Know About Replacement Prescription Lenses

Replacement prescription lenses are a great way to get new glasses without going through the rigors of trying on frames and all that hassle. These lenses can be made from many materials, including single vision plastic, polycarbonate, or a hybrid. The type you choose will depend on your lifestyle and what you need them for. Contact our optometrist today if you have any questions about this or which one would work best for you!

1) What are the benefits of this?

These lenses are much easier to fit than having new frames made. These lenses come in many different materials, each with its strength and durability needs. Replacement prescriptions can be used for just about any type of glass lens that an optometrist or ophthalmologist has previously prescribed.

2) What could go wrong?

These lenses cannot always replicate the same look like your original glasses. There is only one set of measurements when you get a custom pair made up originally. These lenses also may not offer the same level of protection against scratching or shattering, so they need to be handled carefully if you want them to last longer than expected!
