In the United States, 64 percent of adults wear prescription eyewear. Why are replacement lenses a good option for these adults? While consumers plan to spend about $173 on each glasses purchase, most glasses need to be replaced every one to three years due to scratches, breaks, wear, and vision changes.
Glasses frames often outlive the lenses, and consumers may consider changing their replacement lenses if their frame style is no longer available, hard to find, or a part of a growing glasses collection. With better vision and the same glasses, replacement lenses can upgrade any frame to the latest lens tech.
Multifocal lenses, for instance, are divided into segments to allow correction for both near and far vision. Progressive lenses, on the other hand, combine multiple prescriptions without the harsh transitions of multifocal lenses to achieve less distortion, wider viewing area, smaller frames, and easier adaptation. High-index lenses are specially designed for those with a strong prescription, alleviating the typical problem of thicker lenses for thinner, lighter, and more visually appealing glasses.
When choosing replacement lenses, you can take your pick of materials and lens coatings for added benefits and coatings that allow scratch resistance, UV protection, anti-reflection, blue-blocking, and anti-fog benefits. Tinted and sunglasses lenses can also be added to any frames with or without a prescription. Receive your glasses in as little as five days and extend the life of your favorite pair.
