Your Choice of Custom Lens Options

Single vision lenses cost less than multifocal lenses. The type of lenses you choose, such as single vision or multifocal, can raise the price of even the most affordable frames to more than $40 with single-vision lenses, $78 with bifocal lenses, $98 with progressive lenses or $118 with premium progressive lenses.

Additional lens options, such as the use of high-definition digital equipment to make lenses or your choice of tints and coatings, also raise the price of lenses. Photochromic, mirrored or polarized sunglasses lenses cost more than standard tints. Options for thinner lenses or impact-rated polycarbonate safety lenses are also more expensive.

Shop Prescription-Ready Frames By Brand

Marvel Optics makes it easy to shop by brand or filter search results for designer sunglasses. High-end brands often factor the price of proprietary plano lenses into frame prices. The ability to customize any frames with tinted lenses can also help you save on eyewear.
