fitting your prescription lenses
You’re searching for eyewear that is not only a reflection of your personal style but can home your prescription lenses too. We’re here to ensure that your eyewear purchasing journey is as seamless and as memorable as possible.
Although you can have your prescription lenses homed by one of our iamtrend frames, it is important to note that there is always risk involved when having your prescription lenses fitted into a new frame. As a general rule, most optometrists caution that prescription lenses are fitted at the customer’s own risk. Your optometrist will have the option to decline to fit a particular prescription depending on the frame style and the thickness of your lens, which is why we would like you to consider the below before making your purchase:
- Your face shape should play a role in your selection process as it will assist you in choosing a silhouette that flatters and complements your facial features. Whether your face is round, heart-shaped, oval, or square, our ‘Find Your Face Shape‘ guide will help you determine where you fit in. The best part? You can browse eyewear styles that are recommended specifically for you!
- Not only is your face shape important to know, but finding a frame that accommodates your face size will allow for the most comfortable fit. Consider our ‘Find Your Face Size‘ guide; this will ensure that your new frames aren’t too large or too tight when looking for an everyday frame.
- Opt for styles that will complement your skin tone. Warm Skin Tones – If your complexion leans more toward the bronze, yellow, or honey scale on the colour spectrum, you may fall within the warmer skin tone category. It is recommended to choose earth-toned colours that match your look for the most flattering aesthetic. Look for gorgeous tortoiseshell, brown, olive, ecru, or gold-toned hues. Cool Skin Tones – If your complexion is more cool-toned, you will notice a blue or pink undertone visible within your complexion. Your most flattering colours will be the ones that add lustre to your overall look. Choose vivid colours and make your eyewear stand out. Black, pink, blue, and grey are all for you!
- As you may know, not all prescription lenses are the same and depending on their refractive index, they’ll vary in weight and thickness. It is, therefore, important to choose frames that can support your lens specifications. The Wayfarer style, for example, is suited for thicker lenses with a higher prescription as the frame offers a supportive structure. Rimless or semi-rimless silhouettes, on the other hand, fit a lower prescription better as they tend to be thinner.
Having your prescription lenses fitted in an iamtrend frame is done at your own risk, and iamtrend will not be liable for any damage done to your frame or your prescription before, during, or after the fitting of your lenses. In addition, iamtrend will not be liable for an optometrist that is unable to fit your prescription lenses into your chosen frames; the iamtrend customer will be held liable for the refund and exchange delivery fees.
In general, different frame styles and shapes offer varying suitability for prescription lenses. It could be beneficial to consult your optometrist on whether they have any recommendations based on your prescription.
