Out Of Range Lenses

At Glasses Frames & Lenses Online we can cater to almost all prescriptions something which many high street retailers struggle with. Out of range prescriptions can incur additional charges. Your prescription may incur additional costs if you require any of the following: high spherical powers, high cylinder powers and prescriptions with prism.

These additional charges only apply to the lens being manufactured with the high power. If only one eye has an out of range prescription power, you will only incur the additional charge on that eye. If you have high prescription powers on both eyes, then 2 sets of charges will apply. If you have a combination of high sphere and cylinder, then you many incur 2 charges on one eye. If you are unsure, please do not hesitate to email your prescription to us at [email protected] and we can send you a quote.
