Single Vision lenses correct distance vision
only. There is no magnification for reading in the bottom of the lens. If
you never wear reading glasses, choose a Single Vision lens here.
Progressive lenses have a reading portion in
the lower portion of the lens that gets progressively stronger toward the
bottom of the lens. They are available in any Rx-able frame.
If you're ordering
sunglasses and you don’t wear progressive lenses every day, you may not want to
get acclimated to your first pair while participating in a sport or riding a
motorcycle. We typically use Short Corridor progressive lenses in sports
eyewear. You can expect the reading area in our sports sunglasses to be a
bit lower than you have in your everyday progressive lenses. Once again,
we are assuming that distance vision is a bigger priority than near
vision. Let us know if you are ordering glasses for fishing, or if you
want a larger reading area. If you're ordering a progressive lens we will
send you a pair of the glasses so you can get a picture of the glasses on your
face. We will use Photoshop and the known height of the lens to calculate where
to place the reading corridor in the lens.
Oakley True Digital Edge
Oakley True Digital Edge lenses increase the
prescription range, in most frames, to +4.00 to -6.00, while allowing for a
lens that is up to 40% thinner than what previous technology allowed for
prescriptions in this range.

Iridium & Prism
Polarized, Transitions, or
their patented Iridium or Prism
lenses in all types of lenses. This includes Tinted, Polarized,
and even in Photochromic (Transitions) lenses. These Iridium or Prism
layers are IN the lens, not ON the lens. These provide an additional layer
of contrast that highlight specific parts of the color spectrum. These
layers often create a very mirrored look.
a film sandwiched inside a lens that only allows light through in a
straight line, so glare, or scattered light is eliminated. A Polarized lens
is absolutely the best way to cut glare. Reducing glare keeps you from
squinting, therefore muscles are more relaxed and you can enjoy your time
in the sun more comfortably. Polarized lenses are never clear. So
there are no good options that are both polarized and photochromic.
(Photochromic = Transitions lenses that darken in sunlight.)
lenses get darker as the sun gets
brighter. These are clear at night, and either grey or brown in
sunlight. Transitions lenses will NOT darken in your car because your
windshield blocks UV Light required to darken the lens. Here are a few
other things to be aware of when ordering Transitions lenses:
When you check the “Yes” box for “Send a Try-Out Pair First” the price of the prescription lens you selected will be deducted from your total. We will send you a non-prescription version of this frame to try on, and you will receive a 100% refund on the frame as soon as it is returned. Your only expense to try on these frames is the cost of return shipping. (We pay for the outbound shipping, but not the return shipping.)
You can order as many tryout frames as you like, you're under no obligation to order prescription lenses, and there is never a restocking fee. We want you to be absolutely certain you are enthusiastic about wearing these frames before we make your prescription lenses.
If you like the glasses, email us at [email protected] or call (800) 381-9083 toll-free and confirm that you want the prescription version. Then return the Try-Out pair of glasses in the same box that we used to ship them to you. Include all the original documentation and accessories that were with the glasses when you received them. If you do NOT return the glasses, or if they are not in re-sellable condition, you will not receive your refund. For this reason, we recommend insuring these glasses in transit.
