Glasses FAQs

Can adults purchase glasses at PD Optics?
Yes, we fit adults too.  Many of the current styles are designed to appeal to teenagers as well as adults.  The same quality, service, and warranty applies to adults, even if you need bifocals or progressive lenses.

Do you carry sunglasses?
Yes. We carry non-prescription sunglasses for children and teens. In addition, any frame in the shop can be made into sunglasses with your child’s prescription. We also offer the option to have your child’s glasses made with Transitional Lenses, which get automatically darker when they are exposed to brighter light..

Do you carry ski and swim goggles?
Yes. Ski and swim goggles made with your child’s prescription can be ordered from the optical shop. We have made many swim goggles for children on swim teams and for kids who just want to see the bottom of the pool!

Can’t I just buy my child’s glasses online?
We recommend that you buy their eyeglasses in a store.  That will ensure the lens is made for their unique eye measurements.  Frame fit and adjustment is critical and hard to get online.

A lot of eyeglass stores advertise inexpensive glasses.  Wouldn’t it be cheaper to buy glasses there?
Not necessarily.  If you compare the same brands and styles of frames, and the same lenses, you’ll find that PD Optics has lower prices then most optical chains or discount stores.  We also have a better basic warranty, and we offer an extended warranty that helps cover breakage and loss!

Tell me more about your warranties?
We know that kids are tough on their glasses, and that’s why we provide a no-cost one year warranty on all frames and lenses.  You won’t find a comprehensive warranty like this anywhere else.  In addition, we offer an Extended Protection Plan that is good for the life of the prescription.  It helps cover the cost of glasses that have been broken multiple times, that the dog chewed, or that have just been lost.

Can I keep the same frames and just change the lens?
Yes.  You may need to leave the old frame with us so we can make sure the lenses are cut exactly to fit.  If your child can’t go without their glasses, ask the Optician about making special arrangements.

Do you accept my vision plan if I buy glasses for my child?
We do not participate with vision plans.  But, PD Optics has packages and specials that can cost the same or less than glasses priced through vision plans.  Ask the Optician to compare your plan with our prices.
