Our eyeglass frames are made using high quality acetates and metals. We work very hard to design and source the best possible frames for the money. We create our own designs under our own private label, thereby avoiding the fees that other companies pay for brand licensing arrangements. We work very closely with our suppliers to ensure our frames are made exactly to our specifications.
With respect to our lenses, we have sourced high quality prescription lenses that come standard with anti-reflective and scratch coatings.
We offer two prescription lens choices: Polycarbonate and 1.67 High Index.
Our standard lenses for customers with prescriptions ranging from a Sphere of -6.00 to +4.00 and Cylinder up to -2.00 are polycarbonate. These lenses come with an anti-reflective and scratch coating.
For stronger prescriptions falling outside of this range, we provide 1.67 High Index lenses for a small upcharge. Through the use of this higher index lens material, these lenses are thinner and lighter than standard lenses and are ideal for stronger prescriptions. These lenses also have anti-reflective and scratch coatings.
Yes, our lenses come with scratch resistant and an anti-reflective coatings at no extra charge. Our lenses also block 100% of UVA and UVB rays.
At this time, we do not offer progressive or bifocals. This is something we are considering for the future.
“PD” stands for Pupillary Distance and is the measurement of the distance between the center of your pupils. The PD measurement is expressed in millimeters and is either provided as one number (binocular), or two numbers (monocular). It is important that you ask your eye doctor for this measurement when you obtain your eye exam.
Our business is co-located with an optical lab operation in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Our lab uses the latest optical technology and is staffed by experienced technicians who take great pride in their work.
We provide a six month warranty for manufacturer’s defects. This warranty does not cover broken frames or damaged lenses due to misuse. While other websites may claim to offer longer warranties or “no questions asked” lens replacements, ultimately you the customers pay for this. We believe our lenses are of superior quality to our competitors and will hold up quite nicely should they be properly cleaned and maintained.
Our buffalo horn frames are made from the horn of domesticated Asian water buffalo. These animals are domesticated and raised in Asia for dairy products, beef, and as labor on farms. None of these buffaloes are harvested only for their horn, nor are they from the wild. Each of our frames is hand crafted from a piece of horn. Because of this, each frame is completely unique...like a fingerprint! To check out our beautiful horn collection, click here.
