Framesbuy offers a reglaze service which means you can get new lenses or new prescription lenses fitted to your existing frame. The service is affordable and is useful in case of damage or breakage of lenses, change in prescription or if you wish to replace the lenses. The reglazing process is carried out by experienced optical lab technicians. The service offered is quick, however the delivery time may vary according to the type of frames or lenses.
Once you place your order you will receive an email with details about how to send your frames to us. Your glasses will be reglazed in our lab and delivered back to you when complete. Please provide all required details to get perfectly reglazed glasses.
Whilst all care is taken by our technicians, reglazing old frames can occasionally result in damage to the frame due to ageing of the material. If breakages can be repaired, we will provide you with a quotation to do so. In some instances breakages may not be repairable. In this instance, you will be liable to pay for any lens processing that has already occurred. Framesbuy will not be held responsible for any damage to the frame incurred during the reglaze process.
Unless otherwise requested, your old lenses will be disposed of. If you wish to have the old lenses returned to you, please notify us when placing the order.
We recommend you to pack the frame appropriately, ideally in a hard case, to avoid damage in transit. Framesbuy will not be held responsible for damage whilst your frame, or your reglazed glasses are in transit. Before sending us your frames, please make sure that they comply with the following standards:
Plastic Frame: In case of plastic frames, ensure that there are no small cracks around the rim. Also it shouldn't be discolored or brittle.
Metal Frame: Ensure the screw holding the lenses are not damaged and the metal joints are firmly secure.
Rimless Frame: The lenses of the frame which you send are not secured with a permanent nut and bolt.
The payment will be accepted online through credit card or PayPal. You are ensured with same quality of work and feel as our new range of glasses.
