Frame Eligibility Guide
DOES YOUR FRAME QUALIFY FOR LENS REPLACEMENT?
RLE is an expert at replacing prescription lenses into your new or existing frame, we have been re-lensing frames with new lenses for over 10 years. While most frames can be re-lensed there are a few frame brands and or frame types that are either not designed to have the lenses replaced or are just too delicate for the re-lensing process.
We can re-lens the most popular designer and non-designer frame brands like Nike, Kate Spade, Nine west, Gucci, Prada, Versace, Ray Ban, Oakley, Pro Design, and so many more. We also can re-lens any of our competitor frames from Warby Parker and Zenni Optical.
ELIGIBLE FRAMES REQUIREMENTS
Rimless Drill mounted frames – Like Silhouette – please be aware that rimless drill mounted frames cannot be mounted into standard CR-39 plastic lens material.
Metal Grooved Frames - This frame has a very thin metal rim that is embedded into the lenses – please be aware that metal grooved frames cannot be mounted into standard CR-39 plastic lens material.
Semi-Rimless Frames - These frames usually have metal or plastic top and an invisible bottom and are best made in Polycarbonate or Trivex lens materials.
Metal Frames that have screws to release the lenses
Plastic frames – Almost every plastic frame is eligible for lens replacement
Safety frames - Either metal or plastic frames are eligible, and we even monogram the lenses too!Please note that some safety frame may require an RX-able insert that would sit behind the original lenes in the frame.
FRAMES THAT ARE NOT ELIGIBLE
Swiss-Flex pressure mounted drilled rimless frames
Shield lenses or Uni-lenses - The lens is a single piece mostly found in snow goggles and sunglass lenses.
Although this list is short, there are still some frames that cannot be re-lensed. If you are unsure if your frame is eligible for the re-lensing process you can email us at email@example.com and we will let you know.
In the event that your frame is not rx-able we will contact you and see if you would like to send in a different frame or if you would like to cancel your order. If you cancel your order, we will promptly return your frame and issue you a refund for the purchase price, minus the shipping charges incurred by us to return your frame to you.
