If you have chosen rimless eyeglass frames then you must order 1.61 Index lenses or higher such as 1.67 or 1.74 Index. We also suggest MR-8™ 1.61 Index because of it's many advantages, the main one is that they function almost as good as glass lenses but are no where near the weight. In fact, most prescription strengths can be cut into these super strong lenses. In addition they are highly impact resistant, tough enough to withstand damage from the drilling of bolt holes often present in rimless frames. Finally they can hold a tint longer than other types of lens materials such as CR-39 and Polycarbonate. This same material is available for 1.67 MR-7 Index lenses as well.

The acronym PD stands for Pupillary Distance. This is the distance between your left and right pupil. It is measured as you look directly forward. This value is used to align the center of your view through the lenses inserted into your frames. If you don't have that number don't panic. Get yourself a ruler, stand in front of a mirror and align the center of your left pupil with the zero on the ruler and then when you look at the center of the right pupil look down at the number where the ruler lines up there. Do this 3 or 4 times and then take the middle number. If your ruler is in inches then use an online converter to change the measurement into millimetres.

Segment height is where the prescription in your progressive lenses changes its strength. This number is measured from the inside bottom of the lens to the center of your pupil when the glasses are on your face. It is different on every pair of glasses because the frames come with different widths and heights. If you don't have that number don't despair. The good news is that every frame we sell has a pre determined factory segment height. You can also send us a photo of your face wearing glasses which you already own. Don't forget to include the height and width measurement of the lenses. We can do the rest.

Different Types Of Lenses

To ensure a better shopping experience here is some information about lens options.

There are three basic lens materials that are offered on FuzWeb. The first and most common is CR-39. This acronym stands for Columbia Resin 39 a type of plastic used in eyeglass lens making. The second is Polycarbonate which is the plastic used to make shatterproof windows, while the third is MR-8™ which is a mix of a trademark secret plastic ingredients.

Index is how thick the lens is. The higher the number the thinner the lens. The higher the prescription strength the higher the lens index . This is suggested because the higher index lenses are able to be cut at stronger prescription strengths. For example most sunglasses with no prescription strength are 1.499 Index while prescriptions of + or -3.00 or stronger require 1.61 or higher index lenses.

Formerly known as "Transition Lenses", Photochromic lenses are light-adaptive lenses that adjust themselves to different lighting conditions. The more light exposed to, the darker the lens will become. This is because they contain trillions of molecules made of specialized dyes inside the resin material they are created from. The most important reason for choosing these lenses is
because of their ability to fully absorb both UVB and UVA rays. This means critical protection against retinal tissue damage resulting from excess radiation emissions from the sun.


The lifespan of photochromic lenses is on average about three years and can lose their capacity to darken gradually over time. When you notice the lenses have a visible yellow tinge to them when they are supposed to be clear and on the opposite end they will no longer fully darken
even when exposed to full sunlight.

Bifocal lenses are lenses that have two prescription strengths that are clearly visible because one strength is in a circular area near the bottom part of the lens and the other prescription is in the remainder of the lens. Some bifocal lenses have a round circular area and others have a round area with a flat top. Progressive lenses are an updated version of bifocal lenses. The advantage of progressive lenses versus bifocals is that the area of vision for both prescriptions fills the entire lens whereas bifocals only have the stronger prescription strength in a very small area of the lens. Because of advancements in the technology of lens creating and cutting and our growing use of computers for work, progressive lenses are now becoming a more popular choice when deciding on what glasses to purchase.

Shipping

Here are some frequently asked questions about the shipment of your eyeglasses.

Depending on how strong the prescription and if the lenses must be customized it will take anywhere between 3 and ten business days. The stronger the prescription strength, the more options in the lenses the more time it will take. After the lenses are created, they are assembled into the eyeglass frames and then they are placed in a queue line to package them for shipping.
