State law requires that we must have a copy of a recent prescription (no more than a year old) to fill any custom RX order. This must be an eye wear prescription, measurements for contact lenses will not work. Please complete the prescription submit form and upload a scanned copy or clear/high quality photo here: Prescription Submission Form. If you cannot upload a copy of your prescription to our online form you can email a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please make sure that your prescription has your PD measurement – we cannot fill any RX order without this.
After you've submitted your order and valid eye wear prescription we will get to work on
crafting your unique set of glasses. Each pair of Heat Wave Visual prescription lenses are
hand cut to your exact measurements by experts with over 30 years of experience. Please
allow 1-2 weeks for processing.
We offer single vision prescription lenses in both clear and tinted sunglasses. Additionally you can upgrade with a durable, anti-reflective coating and a polarized option for tinted sunglasses lenses. All of our lenses are hand cut out of high-strength, lightweight polycarbonate by experts with over 30 years of experience.
RX Heat Wave Visual glasses use the same durable, customizable platform as our regular sunglasses. The body of the frames are injection molded polycarbonate and feature our hardware-less hinge design. Available in four different styles to suit a variety of face shapes and aesthetics.

For sure, we know that pulling the trigger on a pair of prescription glasses is a big move. We'll send you out a box with all 4 frame styles available for our prescription program. Try them on to see which style you'd prefer, then send them back to us with the included return label. We'll either put the cost towards a prescription order, or refund you the price when we receive the frames back. That way you can safely place an order knowing that the style you selected will fit you. Check out the at home fit pack HERE.
You can easily obtain your prescription from your current optometrist, who are legally obligated to provide you with a copy. If you do not have a current prescription (no more than a year old) you can visit an optometrist or prescription eye wear provider and have a new one taken – although you may have to pay to make an appointment with private optometrist.
Single vision corrective lens prescriptions are made up of 4 basic values:
