Easy Price Guide – Reglaze Glasses 4U
Don’t worry if you are in any way unsure about how to choose which lenses are the right ones for you. I’ll always advise you over the phone regarding which lenses are best suited to your own individual prescription.
Below is a simple guideline to help work out the cost of the new lenses.
Do you need standard lenses, thin lenses or
extra thin lenses and what’s the difference?
Generally speaking the stronger your prescription the thicker and heavier the lenses will be. Therefore standard lenses with a strong prescription could be very thick and unsightly. Looking at your optical prescription can give you a basic guide to choosing your lenses. Look at the Sphere box (sph) on your prescription.
We Recommend That You Choose
- A standard lens (1.5) if your prescription sphere (sph) value is les than 3.50 (plus or minus) – not suitable for rimless frames
- A thin lens (1.6) if your prescription sph value is between 3.50 and 6.00 (plus or minus) – suitable for all frames including rimless
- An extra thin lens (1.67) if your prescription sph value is 6.00 or over (plus or minus) – suitable for all frames including rimless
- Super thin lens (1.74) if your prescription sph value is 8.00 or over (plus or minus) – Note: not all lenses are available in 1.74 – not always suitable for rimless frames
Prism in lenses
We are often asked if we can supply lenses with prism. Yes we can. We need a little more information than a normal reglaze, but it isn’t a problem. We charge £10 per pair up to 2 base. The cost of prism over 2 base depends on the type of and brand of lenses we need to use to accommodate the prism.
