Do your favorite frames need new Len's?Try 39DollarGlasses Lens Replacement Services
39DollarGlasses.com was developed by eye doctors to create an inexpensive method for people to acquire high-quality, finished prescription eyeglasses. From their experience in both private offices and retail establishments, the founders decided they could provide this service for people inexpensively, bypassing expensive retail establishments.
We use the same high-quality materials, but can offer them at a high discount because of our high volume, since we don't have the additional overhead constraints (such as retail rent space, behind-the-counter employees, and expensive displays) that your doctor's office or optical must overcome. Since operating this website is much less expensive than a typical retail establishment, we are able to pass these savings on to the general public.
All of our eyeglasses are custom made for your exact prescription. Please allow us 2-3 business days to make your eyeglasses. Rimless orders, Bifocals and Progressives orders, orders with Transitions™ Lenses, polarized lenses, or custom anti-reflective coatings may take an additional 1-2 business days.
About Your Prescription (Rx)
Your prescription provides us with your doctor's recommendation for clear and comfortable vision. Please take a brief moment now to review your information with our 3 samples shown here. They represent 3 different ways of writing the same prescription:
Your astigmatism correction ("cylinder"). Some doctors write their prescriptions in plus (+) cylinder and some in minus (-) cylinder. They are not the same. Take special note of this when entering your prescription later. If you don't see anything there, leave it blank.
"dist" (distance) is often abbreviated "D.V."
"near" (reading) is often abbreviated "N.V."
For reading-only glasses: Some doctors will write the reading prescription separately, in its entirety (as "NEAR" or "N.V." or "N.V.O."), as in SAMPLE Rx #3. If this is the case, enter the power in the BOTTOM half of the form (you'll see; it's easy), and leave the ADD power blank ("0.00").
If you do not understand ANY part of your prescription, please call us to ensure everything is entered correctly. Don't be shy; we are here to help, and we want your glasses to be made exactly to your doctor's specifications.
