    sun glasses

    if you buy a pair of sun glasses from a shop/net can you get your lenses put in sun glasses evan if you havnt bought the glasses from a optician?
    hope this makes sense!

    You can, but they will complain - a lot! Persist with them and they will do it.

    It does depend on the curve of the frame and size of frame as if too curved you cant bend a prescription lens and if its too big you wont fit a blank size in it..ie size of lens they need to glaze into. Vision express does this all the time only quibble they would say is that its done at your own risk as frames can break during process and as its your own frame so your responsiblity. x Oh and some frames just aren't suitable to be glazed into prescription esp if shops own like new look or top shop etc Oh and if they are rimless ie screwed into lens then this prob cant be done either.

    some places are funny about doing this.x

    okay thanx for your advice,
    i popped into asda opticians y'day and they had some metal frame glassses with a magnetic sunglass lense that u can take on and off - they fit perfect onto my glassses BUT she said you cant buy them seperate!

    no they arent sold seperatly but you can get ones that clip on round your own frames in different sizes I know vision express sell these think for £12
