Try Before You Buy
If you'd like to try our frames before buying our lenses,
Because prescription glasses are not returnable, you may want to make sure the frame fits before we start grinding lenses. To help facilitate this, we give you an opportunity to try out a non-prescription version first.
You can get Try-Out glasses by ordering the prescription version of the glasses just as if you were ordering the finished product. Order as many glasses as you would like to try on. Select the frame color, Rx lens type, and color for each model that you want to try on. As you order each one, check YES for "Send a pair to try out". This will change the price of the prescription lenses in your cart to zero.
Fill in the prescription form just as you would if you had ordered prescription lenses. This will give us an opportunity to check the compatibility of the glasses you chose with your prescription.
Your credit card will be charged for the frames, but not the prescription lenses. You will receive 100% credit when it is returned. We do not pay for the return shipping, so your only expense for this service is the cost to send the glasses back to us.
Shipping is always done at no charge on orders over $100.00, as long as you live in the 48 contiguous United States. The standard shipping rates will apply on try-out glasses sent to Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, and other foreign countries.
If you like the glasses, email us at Rx@ADSEyewear.com or call (800) 381-9083 and confirm that you want the prescription version. Then return the plano (non-prescription) glasses in the same box that we used to ship them to you. (You have up to 10 business days to return the try-out pair.) Include all the original documentation and accessories that were with the glasses when you received them. Naturally, if we don't get the plano pair of glasses back, or if they are not in re-sellable condition, you will be charged for those as well. For this reason, we recommend insuring glasses in transit.
You're under no obligation to buy, there is never a restocking fee, and we don't want you to keep anything that you're not enthusiastic about wearing.
To help expedite this process, we may not send your Try-Out pair of glasses in the exact color that you ordered. We will match your color preference as closely as possible, but our goal is to let you check out the feel and fit of the glasses. If you REALLY need to try out glasses that will be identical to the prescription version that you want, drop us an email and let us know. If we do not have what you want in stock, we will promptly order them and ship them to you as soon as we get them. All shipping from ADS Sports Eyewear will be done at no charge to you.
