Fitting your prescription lenses into our moisture chamber glasses

Most of our glasses can be fitted with prescription lenses up to specified limits on the powers that can be accommodated.

If you need prescription lenses to be fitted, here are the steps to follow:

Step 1: Tell us your needs

  • Email us the following information:
    • your current prescription
    • the size of your spectacle frame (width between arms, width and depth of lenses).
    • whether you want Single Vision Distance, Single Vision Near, Bifocal or Varifocal lenses.
    • when you need to wear our glasses, for example indoors, outdoors or both, playing golf, cycling, driving, using a computer.

Step 2: Order the glasses you want to try on

    • We will advise which of our glasses will be suitable for you.
    • Order the recommended glasses from our website. Many customers order two different models so they can judge which is the best fit.
    • We will send the glasses with non-prescription lenses so that you can check that they fit well. This is essential if the glasses are to provide the relief and protection that you require.

    Ziena or 7eye AirShield glasses?

    • Ziena glasses can accommodate stronger prescriptions than 7eye AirShield, so if your prescription is over +/- 2.0 in either the SPH or CYL measurement you need to be looking at either the KAI or MARINA.

    • 7eye AirShield glasses have a wraparound frame that requires curved lenses to be fitted. This puts a low limit on the prescription powers that can be accommodated.

    • Some 7eye frames, such as the Panhead or Notus are too curved to fit prescription lenses into at all.

    Step 3: Send them to an optical reglazing company

    We do not offer an optical reglazing service, so you will need to contact a company that specialises in that field.

    • It is up to you to select the optical reglazing company of your choice. You will find a selection of them through internet search. Some are online services and others have a workshop in major cities. 
    • Check that your chosen company has experience of fitting prescription lenses to wraparound frames and ideally has experience of reglazing 7eye and Ziena glasses.
    • Generally high street opticians such as Specsavers, Boots and Vision Express do not have access to the specialist experience and expertise to fit prescription lenses into 7eye AirShield or Ziena frames.
    • If you can't find a suitable optical glazing company, we can recommend you to the one that most of our customers and myself use.
    • Eyewear Accessories has no input to the prescription lens fitting process. Any issues or queries must be directed to the reglazing company. We are not able to refund the cost of the glasses once they have been fitted with prescription lenses.
