Scroll down to find an eye doctor near you that we know can put your prescription into our glasses.
This is by no means a comprehensive list of opticians that can do this. Ask your preferred optician if they can make curved lenses!
We continue to expand our network of eye care professionals that offer Flying Eyes prescription lenses. However, if you can't find an eye care professional or optician near you, you can also buy them directly from us online HERE.
If you don't have one of the above opticians near you, or you'd prefer to use another optician, this is generally the process for having your prescription filled for our frames:
- Contact the optician you'd like to use and confirm that they can make curved lenses for sunglass frames. Golden Eagle Sports and Hawk Convertibles have a base 8 curve lens, and our other styles use a base 6 curve. We strongly recommend Trivex lenses for the clarity, impact resistance, and minimal distortion.
- Once you've located an optician whose lab can make appropriately curved lenses, purchase the style you'd like from our website (or from one of our Retailers).
- Take the glasses into the optician and have them confirm your pupillary distance and the fitting/segment height for the frame (this is the distance between the bottom of the lens and your pupil).
- The optician will send your measurements, prescription, and the frame to their lens lab to have your lenses made in the correct shape and size. Either the lab or your optician will fit them into the frame, and you'll be contacted to pick up your new glasses!
Contact Us if you have any trouble or need any help during this process. Alternatively, your optician can contact us by phone (512-213-2390) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if they have any questions.
If you are a pilot and want an eye care professional who understands your unique vision needs, check out www.eyesthatfly.com to find a listing of eye care professionals who are also pilots. These practices do not carry our products, but they have a pilot on staff (or did at the time of being added to this list).
