What is Reglazing and Why Should I Reglaze?

What is reglazing?

Reglazing your glasses is reusing your old, favourite or even a new frame and having your old prescription or scratched/damaged lenses replaced with your new prescription. We can also provide you with new non-prescription sunglasses, transition or clear lenses.

Why should you reglaze your glasses?

  • Your Favourite Frames are like your favourite pair of slippers, once they have been worn in, they are very comfortable on you and fit perfectly, having to go to your opticians to have your new glasses fitted and then adjusting to your new frame can take time and be a pain. So, if you’re happy with your frame why change it if it’s not broken? Reglaze your favourite frame with Lenses in Glasses to extend the life of your frame and enjoy it for that little bit longer.
  • Reglazing your old or favourite frame reduces The Environmental Impact, throwing away your frame after purchasing a new one might not seem like a big deal as the need for a new frame may not be often, however, when everyone thinks like this all of these frames add up! Most frames will end up in landfill once someone has purchased a new pair, even if they are in good condition. Using our online reglaze service allows you to keep your frame for longer and helps to reduce the number of perfectly useable frames from going straight to landfill.
  • It Saves You Money! Reglazing your frames takes away the biggest expense when you have a change of prescription, the actual frame itself! The only thing that really needs replaced when you have a change in prescription is the lenses. Designer frames can cost hundreds of pounds adding a great amount to the cost of getting new glasses. By using Lenses in Glasses you can have your new prescription lenses replaced into your favourite frame from as little as £19.00 for single vision lenses.
  • Last of all, we can Refurbish and Repolish certain acetate frames and can replace nose pads on your metal frames to help make them look and feel like brand new again, giving them a new lease of life!
