Will these Frames work for Send in Your FramesUpdated 5 months ago

Frame Selection is Important

You want to choose a frame that will provide you sufficient coverage, as Avulux lenses are meant to specifically filter light to help you combat light sensitivity throughout your days (avoid frames requiring short/small lenses). Purchasing a new frame will ensure your glasses have the longest life, as old frames can become brittle after already being mounted with lenses.

We cannot process:
-Old frames.
-Frames requiring oversized lenses.
-Frames with extreme curve or wraps, such as Cocoons or 7eye frames.
-Frames with novelty shapes (e.g. heart shaped glasses)
-Rimless or Half-rim frames (glasses with nylon string that are to be tucked into the lens).


If you're ordering prescription Avulux lenses, we cannot process Rx jobs requiring a step bevel.

The below frames can cause problems with edging and mounting. Avulux lenses are created specifically to filter out the most harmful light consistently. Because of the requirement to consistently filter light, the lens is designed in a way that limits which frames it can be placed into. Avulux lenses are individual lenses that can be placed into individual eye sockets on a frame.

Avoid these frames:

Avoid Half-Rim/Nylor Frames

Avoid Rimless or Novelty Shape Frames

Avoid Single/Unilens Lens Frames
