do your frames qualify?

our frame specs

We replace lenses for many brand named frames: Chanel, Prada, Versace, Gucci, Brooks Brothers, Warby Parker, Persol, Vogue, RayBan and many other designer and non-designer brands too.

At Today’s Optician, we have experience and expertise handling many types of frames.  Most frames on the market today can be replaced with new lenses, however some are not designed to have lenses removed, or are too delicate.

Qualifying Frames

Full-rim plastic/zyl

Made of a basic plastic,  stronger acetate or lightweight zyl material and they surround the lens entirely.  All lens materials are compatible with this type of frame, including plastic CR39, polycarbonate, trivex and 1.67/1.74 hi-index.

Sun lenses

Full-rim metal

Usually made of stainless-steel, nickel monel, or titanium, these frames surround the lens entirely.  All lens materials are compatible with this type of frame, including plastic CR39, polycarbonate, trivex, and 1.67/1.74 hi-index.

Sun lenses

Semi-rimless

These frames will have a metal, or plastic top rim with the bottom lens having a groove only.  As a result, the exposed part of the lens should be a lens material that won’t chip, such as polycarbonate, trivex and 1.67/1.74 hi-index.  Must include lenses to trace the proper shape.

Clear lenses

 

Transitions™

Vintage

These classic frames, if metal,  can be re-lensed as long as they are free from corrosion and have not been soldered.  Or if they are plastic, be free of cracks, and stress fractures.

Sunglass frames

Most sunglass frames can be re-lensed as long as they are not Oakley®, Maui Jim®, Ray-Ban®, and Costa Del Mar®.  These frames require authentic lenses only and cannot be re-lensed with our lenses.

Sun lenses

 

Children’s frames

These types of frames are built for durability.  They are mostly made of strong plastic materials.  We recommend using polycarbonate, trivex and hi-index.
