What type of lens coating do you need?
There are 3 types of coatings traditionally applied to eyeglass lenses: anti-scratch, anti-glare, & mirrored lens coatings. From eliminating reflections & glare to extending the life of your lenses, these coatings help to provide the best lenses for every individual application. We also offer lens tints in numerous colors and densities.

The anti-scratch coating is a protective coating applied to the front and back lens surfaces to protect against scratching. Our anti-scratch coatings are all premium and increase a lens' resistance to scratching, but there is no such thing as a scratch-proof lens. The best way to prevent scratching is to make sure that nothing hard (i.e. keys, pavement, etc) comes into contact with the lens surfaces.
Anti-glare (a.k.a. 'anti-reflective') coatings reduce reflections and glare, drastically improving both your vision and your look. Since our anti-glare coatings eliminate 99.5% of reflections, more light passes through the lens into your eye, giving you a clearer picture of the world. Our coatings are produced with clarity and durability in mind using the latest vacuum coating technology. See specific anti-glare classifications below.
Anti-Glare (Standard vs. Premium)
The standard, 7 layer anti-glare coating eliminates 99.5% of reflections, giving a clearer picture, and a cosmetically superior look. The premium anti-glare adds an additional protective super slick, hydrophobic, oleophobic top layer, making the lens easier to clean and less likely to scratch.
Anti-Glare (Computer and Blue-Blocking)
Coatings are now available specifically to work with digital device use. Blue blocking anti-glare coatings protect your eyes from the harmful effects of blue light (HEV) emitted from digital devices. Blue color hue, not recommended for all around use. Available on select products
The sunglass anti-glare coating is our premium coating applied to the back side of dark sunglass lenses & mirror coated lenses in order to eliminate light reflecting off the back side of the lens and into the eye. Add this coating to any sunglass lens product.
Crizal is the brand of anti-glare coatings produced by the largest optical company, Essilor. They offer a wide variety of coatings, the most popular of which is the Crizal Avance. The Crizal premium anti-glare coatings are great quality and available only on single vision or Varilux Products. Click for Crizal Website
Mirror coatings darken the lens and add a 'mirror-like' finish to the front lens surface. We offer mirror coatings in silver, blue, black, green, rose, red, violet, yellow, and gold colors. They include a Sunglass (back-side) Anti-Glare coating to prevent back side reflections. Enhance your look with a mirror!
Tinted eyeglass lenses are dipped in dye to make the lens darker. They include UV protection in all materials EXCEPT standard plastic CR39, which has 85% UV Protection. Select from a variety of colors and tint styles.

What measurements and prescription information do I need?
There are three items necessary for successful eyeglass lens orders: Your Prescription, Pupillary Distance, & Vertical Height. At ReplaceALens, ordering eyeglass lenses online produces top-quality lenses equal to or better than what you'll find in most physical optical shops. How? We guide our customers through the process with streamlined product selection, relevant questioning, and simple instructions, leaving little room for error.
1. A Valid Prescription
We recommend a current, not expired, prescription from an eye doctor. We can also duplicate the prescription off any pair of complete glasses at your risk.
2. Your Pupillary Distance
You cannot measure your PD yourself. The PD (pupillary distance), tells us where to place the optical center of the lens horizontally. There are a few options to provide your PD: 1. We can read the PD off any pair of prescription lenses that worked for you. 2. You can call any lens producer that has made lenses for you before and they may have it on file. 3. You can have your PD professionally measured. 4. For NON-Progressive lenses, you can have someone take a picture of you from 5 feet away, with a level head, while wearing the glasses you are sending in. You can email this to info@ReplaceALens.com with your name and contact information in lieu of a PD measurement.
3. Your Vertical Pupil Height
The pupil (or segment) height, which tells us where to place the optical center of the lens vertically. This is especially important for multi-focal lenses. We can copy this off of your current lenses, you can measure it yourself by having someone 'dot your pupils,' or you can have someone take a picture of you wearing the glasses from 5 feet away with a level head. To dot your pupils, put your glasses on where they normally sit, look into the distance with a level head, and have a family member or friend place a dot on the lens at the location of the center of your pupils. See below for a diagram on how to dot your pupils:
