My prescription doesn’t look right, what should I do?

With your new glasses / prescription your eyes may take time to adjust to the new lens. This can take up 1 – 2 weeks. If you are still experiencing issues after this period, then please get in touch with us at

What is my pupillary distance (PD)?

Pupillary Distance (PD) is the distance between the centre of both pupils in millimetres. Our lab requires your PD in order to fit your lens accurately. Your PD measurement doesn’t form part of a standard eye examination. It's the responsibility of the dispensing practitioner to measure this for you as part of dispensing glasses. If you cannot find your PD you can call your optician who carried out your previous eye examination. If you are still unable to obtain your PD then please follow the instructions below.

Can I take a PD measurement myself?

If you are unable to obtain your Pupillary Distance from your previous optician and you're unable to visit us in store, then you can follow these instructions to measure your PD yourself at home (this is much easier with help from someone):

1.) Find a ruler

2.) Hold the ruler on your eyebrows, close your right eye and line up the 0mm with the centre of your left pupil (ensure you are looking straight ahead).

3.) Close your left eye and open your right, your pupilary distance will be the figure that lines up with the centre of your pupil on your left eye.

4.) We would recommend doing this more than once as to improve the accuracy of your measurement. The average PD for an adult is between 54mm - 74mm.

Why can’t I choose prescription on any Zero frames?

Our Zero frame has base 0 lens, meaning they are completely flat. This removes any ability to add a prescription to this frame without completely removing the outer lens rim.

Can I return my order if it included a prescription?

If you change your mind about the prescription sunglasses, although we cannot offer a refund, we can arrange an exchange for a different colour frame in the same style that you have ordered. An exchange is available within 30 days of purchase. The frames must be in their original condition. To arrange an exchange please email
