Glasses Reglaze Guide
Fashion Eyewear offers a premium online service to reglaze glasses. This means you can replace your lenses and keep your frames. Not only does this cut costs, but it’s also better for the environment.
We offer high-quality and exceptional lenses from the three leading manufacturers, Nikon, Essilor and Zeiss. If you have Oakley glasses, you also have the option to choose Oakley True Digital Lenses. These lenses are designed for professional and amateur athletes to provide the best field of vision, even in heavily curved frames that improve peripheral vision.
What does reglazing glasses mean?
When you reglaze glasses, you’re essentially changing your glasses lenses while keeping the glasses frames. Whether your current lenses are damaged, you’ve had your prescription updated or you want to add anti-glare or anti-scratch layers (amongst other options), reglaze is an affordable solution.
How to reglaze your glasses
The ordering process for glasses reglazing is done entirely online. If you get stuck, you can chat to one of our consultants at any time by selecting the blue chat icon at the bottom right of your screen.
Before you start, it’s important to have your prescription from your optician ready.
Step 1 – Click on the ‘our lenses’ section on the homepage, then on the drop down click ‘reglaze your glasses’
Step 2 - Select the ‘Add Lenses’ option.
Are your glasses for:
- Work or computer use
- A combination of all the above (i.e., varifocal lenses)
Step 3 – Choose your type of lens.
We have three types of lenses available:
- Blue light computer lenses
- Photochromic lenses
You can choose from optician recommended lens coatings or create your own package. Fashion Eyewear offers four lens packages, namely bronze, silver, gold, and platinum, each with their own coating options and prices.
Step 4 – Add your most recent prescription.
With each option, you must provide your pupillary distance (PD). There are three ways to add your prescription:
- Enter it manually
- Upload a digital copy
- Send your prescription to [email protected] – it’s important to make a note of your order number to include on your prescription.
If you’re a returning Fashion Eyewear customer and your prescription has not changed, you don’t need to reload it.
Step 5 – Select your lens thickness and tint.
There are four thicknesses available:
- Standard - 1.5
- Thin and light - 1.6
- Thinner and lighter - 1.67
- Thinnest and lightest - 1.74
If you need varifocal lenses, we offer four types:
How much does it cost to reglaze glasses?
This entirely depends on what you need from your lenses. The standard reglazing fee is £30 plus any additional cost for the type of lens you choose. For instance, varifocal lenses are more intricate than occupational or fashion lenses, therefore might be more costly.
If you’re not sure what you need, be sure to read through our buying lenses guide.
