Your optometrist might suggest getting replacement prescription lenses when you need a new prescription. Replacement lenses are exactly what they sound like — lenses that replace the ones currently in your frames.
There are a few reasons why you might choose to get them: you might have lost or broken your old glasses, your prescription has changed, or you want to try a different type of lens. In this article, we’ll tell you everything you need to know!
Replacement lenses are available in various materials, including glass, plastic, and polycarbonate.
Glass lenses are the most scratch-resistant and durable, but they’re also the heaviest.
Plastic lenses are lighter than glass, but they’re not resistant to scratches.
Polycarbonate lenses are lightweight and shatter-resistant, making them a good choice for children and athletes.
Replacement prescription lenses are something that many people don’t think about until they need them. And, even then, many people aren’t sure what their options are.
