FAQs

The vast majority of our sunglasses can be fitted with prescription lenses. The few exceptions are when the shape or size of the frame or lens opening would distort the wearer's vision. Some sports sunglasses like ski goggles and single lens styles fall into this category.

At SmartBuyGlasses, we have tens of thousands of prescription sunglasses to choose from, so you’re bound to find the right pair for you.

The cost of prescription sunglasses can vary depending on the brand and frame style, as well as the thickness, tint, and coatings of the lens. 

We want to make quality eye care affordable for everyone. The exclusive SmartBuy Collection contains plenty of frames at reasonable prices, and you can customize your lens options to suit both your needs and your budget.

The short answer is yes. Exposure to UV rays can have harmful effects on your eye health, so prescription sunglasses are always a useful option, especially for those who can’t wear contact lenses.

Sorry! Unfortunately, we don't sell prescription sunglasses lenses by themselves.
