Are Prescription Lenses Extra?

One of the best things about Pair Eyewear is that base frames include single-vision Rx lenses. That’s right, for $60, you get both the frame and prescription lenses for either distance or reading.

Progressive lenses incur an additional cost however, as well as additional treatments such as blue-light filtering or high-index (thinner) lenses.

Will Pair Eyewear Accept Expired Prescriptions?

Yes, you may purchase Pair Eyewear glasses with an expired prescription. They’ll require your acknowledgment that you’re using an expired prescription before processing the order. (Of course, ideally you should have a valid prescription for your own benefit.)

How Do The Toppers Attach To The Base Frame? Is It Hard To Secure Them On?

The top frames have small magnets at the top corner that attach to corresponding magnets on the base frame. They’re easy to put and on take off – simply line up the topper over the base frame, and it will snap into place. There is no need for additional tools or adjustments.

How Secure Are The Toppers?

The toppers stay put for the most part, but like any accessory with magnets, there is a chance they can come loose if caught on something or if they’re handled roughly.

How Do I Know If The Pair I Want Fits (My Child)?

The best way to determine if a pair of glasses will fit you or your child is to look at the 3-number measurements of your current pair of glasses. You can find these measurements on the inside of the temples (arm pieces) of your glasses.

The first number is the lens width, the second number is the bridge width, and the third number is the temple length. You can then compare those measurements to the corresponding numbers on the product page of the frame you’re interested in.

What’s The Difference Between Sunglasses and Sunglass Toppers?

Pair Eyewear sells both sunglasses and sunglass tops that fit over the top of a base frame. The sunglasses are regular shades with tinted lenses installed in the frame.

The sunglass tops have tinted lenses and attach to eyeglass frames to turn them into sunglasses. You’ll be looking through 2 lenses when wearing the sunglass toppers – the tinted lens and your optical (prescription) lens.

You can purchase regular tops without lenses to go over sunglass frames too.

Do The Base Frame and Toppers Come With A Case?

Yes, for each frame ordered, you’ll receive a case that can hold one frame and 2 tops. A lens cloth is also included.
