REGLAZE (LENS REPLACEMENT)

REGLAZE (LENS REPLACEMENT)

           Reglaze (Lens Replacement)    

Here at internetspecs.co.uk, we offer a very competitively priced Lens Replacement (Reglaze) service. 

  • Perhaps your current lenses are damaged?
  • Or maybe your prescription has changed?
  • Perhaps you wish to change your lenses to thinner lenses
    or different lenses?

Rather than buying new glasses, you can keep your frame by posting your glasses to us and we will replace the lenses.

Our single vision reglaze price starts from £35 for Kodak CleAR 1.6 Thin & Lightweight Anti-Reflection (AR) coated lenses.

(We're not currently offering a reglaze service for varifocal or bifocal lenses).

Simply select which lenses you require, enter your prescription (or scan it (and then upload it on this page, or upload it on our 'Contact Us' page) or post it to us) and we will reglaze your frame and have your glasses back to you as soon as possible (usually in 5 to 10 working days).

  • Our reglazing prices are for FULL FRAME and SEMI-RIMLESS
    (supra) glasses
    . We do not reglaze rimless glasses unless we
    supplied the frame originally. If we did sell you the rimless
    frames, please get in touch with us through our 'Contact Us'
    page for the reglaze price.

     
  • If you know your pupillary distance (PD) reading, please
    enter the figure onto our form opposite. However, we will
    be able to measure your PD from your glasses that you
    send to us if you do not provide us with a figure.

     
  • Please post your glasses to our address found on our
    'Contact Us' page. Inside the box that you post your
    glasses in, please include your name and address
    . If it is
    possible, you could also include a copy of your
    prescription. We recommend sending them either by
    'Signed For' (insured up to the value of £50 or, if your
    glasses are expensive, by Royal Mail Special Delivery
    Postage (special delivery for the UK only). We will return
    them to you, for free, using either Royal Mail Special
    Delivery (UK) or Royal Mail 'Signed For' (rest of the
    world).

     
  • Please note that if the frame of your glasses is in a
    poor condition, we will not be able to offer you our
    reglazing service.


Reglazing is a delicate process and very occasionally, a frame can break due to the dry solder (with metal frames) or brittleness (in the case of plastic frames). In the unlikely event that this occurs to your frame, we are sorry to say that we will not be liable for the cost of your frame.

             Help with your Lens Options

Here at internetspecs.co.uk, we have kept our Lens Replacement (Reglaze) options simple and at a great price. Because of their high overheads, high street opticians charge a lot to put new lenses into your old frame. Our overheads are not high so there is no need to have our prices high - good for you! We are also confident we have some of the best reglaze prices on the web.
  • Our Lens Replacement (Reglaze) service offers Single Vision
    Kodak 'CleAR' 1.6 Thin & Lightweight Anti-Reflection (AR)
    Lenses
    * for just £35. These lenses will be noticeably thinner
    and more lightweight than standard 1.5 or 1.56 lenses. For
    those who are long sighted (a positive (+) Sphere (SPH)
    reading, we will use 1.6 Aspheric lenses which will make the
    centre of the lenses even thinner.

    (You may have noticed that our Cylinder (CYL) drop-down 
    forms for the left and right eye only go up to -2.00. However,
    for our 1.6 lenses, if you have a negative Sphere (SPH)
    reading, we are still able to supply, for free, CYL's higher than
    -2.00, up to -4.00. You won't be able to input this onto our
    forms so please either upload a copy of your prescription to
    us or tell us in the 'Any Additional Information' form).

     
  • For those that have a high prescription (Sphere (SPH)
    reading above +/-2), we recommend our Kodak 'CleAR' 1.67
    Extra-Thin Anti-Reflection (AR) lenses for which our reglaze
    service is just £43.50. This will make your lenses even
    thinner and more lightweight. Our 1.67 AR lenses are
    always Aspheric, no matter what your prescription is.
    Aspheric lenses allow the lenses to be made thinner and
    flatter.

    (You may have noticed that our Cylinder (CYL) drop-down
    forms for the left and right eye only go up to -2.00. However,
    for our 1.67 lenses, if you have a negative Sphere (SPH)
    reading, we are still able to supply, for no extra cost, CYL's
    higher than -2.00, up to -4.00. You won't be able to input
    this onto our forms so please either upload a copy of your
    prescription to us or tell us in the 'Any Additional
    Information' form).

     
  • Our Kodak 'CleAR' 1.74 Ultra-Thin Anti-Reflection (AR)
    lenses are the thinnest and most lightweight plastic lenses
    available. To replace your lenses with 1.74 AR lenses will
    cost £90. They are only available from us if you have a
    negative prescription (the Sphere (SPH) reading). We
    recommend choosing a 1.74 lens if your prescription is
    higher than -4.50 for Sphere (SPH) reading (i.e: from -4.50
    to -8.00). Our 1.74 lenses are also Aspheric which
    contributes to the lenses being thinner and flatter.

     
  • Our 1.5 and 1.6 Transition® lenses (known as 
    'Photochromatic Lenses' and available in either grey,
    brown or green) change colour in sunlight meaning that
    you can use them during the day or at night. They are
    temperature dependent, darkening better in colder
    climates such as Northern Europe (in snowy conditions,
    they become extra dark due to the intense ultraviolet
    light. Transitions® need ultraviolet rays from sunlight
    to darken, meaning they're not always suitable for
    behind a car windscreen (Our Polarised lenses are 

    good during sunny driving conditions - please see
    below). The lenses without anti-reflection (AR) coating
    are darker in sunny conditions, whereas with 
    anti-reflection (AR) coating, they are better inside and
    at night because they are lighter in colour. The thin 
    1.6 Transition® lenses come with anti-reflection (AR)
    coating. The higher lens index value (1.6) causes
    reflections to increase. Having an AR coating helps
    to eliminate this.

     
  • Our 1.59 Anti-Reflection (AR) Polycarbonate Lenses
    are good for sport as they are tougher than normal
    lenses. They're known as 'plastic aluminium' - weight
    for weight, they're 4 times the strength of aluminium
    - the material is used for riot shields. Because they're 
    1.59, they're also thin lenses.

          Please note: our grey, brown and green 1.5
          Transitions®, our green 1.6 Transitions® and
          our 1.59 Polycarbonate lenses have a more 
          limited prescription range than we have for all
          our other lenses. Certain prescriptions will 
          require more expensive 'surfaced' lenses. If this 
          is the case for you, we will contact you very soon
          after you place your order to ask if you wish to
          pay the extra cost for 'surfaced' lenses or, in the
          case of the 1.5 Transition® lenses, if you wish to
          upgrade to 1.6 Transitions® in either grey or 
          brown, or if you wish to change or cancel your
          order.

     
  • Our 1.5 Polarised sun lenses are tinted and
    eliminate glare, offering 100% protection from
    harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. They're ideal for those
    sunny sunrises & sunsets when you can be 'blinded'
    by the sun, even when wearing 'normal' sunglasses.
    Polarised lenses must not be worn while driving at
    night. They come in 2 different colours: grey and
    brown.

     
  • Our standard Kodak 1.5 Tinted Sun Lenses and
    our thin & lightweight Kodak 1.6 Tinted AR Sun
    lenses
     are 'fixed tint' (they are always coloured
    and so are for day use only). They will absorb
    85% of sunlight.

     

*  Occasionally, for those with a low prescription 
    (Sphere (SPH) reading around Plano (0) to 1, 
    sending us a pair of semi-rimless glasses, we may
    have to use a thicker lens (1.5 or 1.56) to enable

    glazing to occur. Here is the technical bit! - for
    semi-rimless glasses, the edges of the lenses 
    have to be thick enough to allow a groove to be
    cut to hold the nylon thread. On occasion, a 
    1.6 lens will be just too thin. Please be assured
    that we'll contact you before we do this to make
    sure you're happy with us using a thicker lens.

*  For the rare occurrence that you have a 
    positive (+) prescription Sphere (SPH) reading,
    you have a small pupillary distance
    measurement and you send us a wide frame,
    we may have to use a special lens (known as
    a 'surfaced' lens to get the centre of the lens
    in the correct place. In the unlikely event that
    this occurs for you, we will need to ask you for
    an additional payment. Please be assured that
    if this arises for you, we will contact you soon
    after you place your order to ask if you wish 
    to pay for the special lenses or if you wish to
    cancel your order.

 

            Help with your Prescription 

Before you order prescription lenses at internetspecs.co.uk, you need to have a copy of your prescription that was given to you at your last eye test. To order from us, this needs to have been within the last 2 years. If it has been longer than this time (or you have never had your eyes tested), please go to an optician and get an eye test.

After the examination,
ask for a copy of your prescription - the optician is legally obliged to give it to you. Then you'll be ready to order your lenses from us. You can also ask the optician to give you your Pupillary Distance (PD) measurement (the distance, in millimetres, between the pupils of each eye), although he/she does not have to give you this (there may be a small fee). For Lens Replacement (Reglazes), it's not important that you have a Pupillary Distance (PD) measurement because if you don't, we can measure your PD from the pair of glasses that you send to us.
 

On your prescription, abbreviations will more than likely be used:


•  ‘R’  will refer to your   ‘Right Eye

•  ‘L’  will refer to your    ‘Left Eye’   
                        

•  ‘SPH’  will refer to      ‘SPHERE’    
 

•  ‘CYL’  will refer to       ‘CYLINDER’    
 
•  ‘ADD’  or  ‘NEAR’ refers to ‘NEAR
    ADDITION
’         


SPHERE (SPH)

This figure designates the strength of lens needed to correct your focus:  A positive (+) SPH for long sightedness (problems focusing on close objects) and a negative (-) SPH to correct short sightedness (problems focusing on far objects). If you are neither short nor long sighted, on your prescription, you will see the word PLANO or PL, or the figure 0 (sometimes 0.00), or the sign for infinity:  ∞   However, this does not necessarily mean you have perfect eyesight as you may have an astigmatism (see below).


CYLINDER (CYL) 

The CYL figure helps to correct an Astigmatism - which means the eye has problems focusing at
particular angles. The eye will be slightly rugby ball shaped rather than football (soccer for our American customers!) shaped. This box on your prescription MAY BE EMPTY, in which case you do not have to put anything in the ‘CYL’ part on our prescription form. Similarly, an optician may write: ‘DS’ in the CYL box. If you see this, you can ignore the ‘CYL’ part of our form.


AXIS                   

There will only be an AXIS figure if you have a CYL figure. It tells us where exactly on your eye the astigmatism is. Be particularly careful inputting this figure to us. It is measured in degrees from 0 to 180. Occasionally there will be a 1/2 or .5 figure.


NEAR ADDITION (ADD)                 

The ADD('s) is the Additional correction needed for READING
and/or COMPUTER USE. The figure is almost always the same for each eye so if it is just written once on your prescription, do not be confused - you can just add the same figure into both boxes on our form.

          
          SOME IMPORTANT POINTS  

   Some prescriptions will include a figure in the
    PRISM section. The prism helps to correct such
    conditions as muscle
imbalance problems. If
    your prescription
includes a figure in the prism
    box, please get in touch with us through our
    ‘Contact Us’ page and we may be able to
help
    you but it will involve an additional cost.


•  Please double check you have entered the (+)
    and (-) correctly
into our form

•  Sometimes an optician may, for example, write:
    +050  or  +175  for the SPH, CYL or the ADD.
    He/she has
simply omitted the dot and you can
    enter into our form as:  +0.50  or  +1.75

 
•  Sometimes, an optician may write
the + or -
    above the figure like this:  +       or this:   -

                                                     0.5                 1.5


IF YOU ARE IN ANY WAY UNSURE ABOUT
YOUR PRESCRIPTION,
KNOW THAT YOU CAN:

reglazed existing sunglasses
Friday, 10 June 2016  |  Lesley

I am highly delighted with the service from Internet Specs both in terms of the quality of the customer care and cost and quality of the product - my existing sunglasses have been re glazed for just £35.00 compared to an extortionate price quoted by my optician - I would have no hesitation in both recommending Mark and using Internet specs again.

Excellent Service
Monday, 1 February 2016  |  Andrew

I had recently purchased some new frames whilst on a trip to America and was looking for someone to put lenses in them for me. After a crazy price from my local opticians I thought I would take a look on the internet and found internetspecs.co.uk and was so glad that I did. I dropped them an email about my requirements and within a couple of minutes received a call from Mark Sceats who was extremely helpful and talked over my prescription and what I needed to do. I was a little worried about sending my frames off and having lenses made but I needn't have been, the whole process was easy and the service was amazing. I had my glasses back within a week and at a fraction of the cost my local optician had quoted me! I will be recommending internet specs to everyone and will definitely be using their services again. Thanks

Great product and service
Monday, 6 October 2014  |  Todd

I had my own frames, which I mailed to internetspecs for lenses (reglazing). The price quote was the best I'd found, and the finished product was of a very high quality. Also, communication from the staff and service were top-notch all the way.
