Do you offer children's frames?

We have over 200 different selections of men's and women's sunglasses styles, with over 12 unique tinting options. You can also turn any eyeglasses frame into a pair of shades with our Sun tint option.


Do you offer glasses that turn into sunglasses outdoors?

Yes! We offer photochromic lenses and premium  lenses. First select your eyeglasses frames and then select LIGHT ADJUSTING after you enter your prescription during lens selection.


Are there any limitations for bifocals or progressive lenses?

For bifocals, frames must be at least 28mm. Progressive lenses require a lens height of 30mm.


How do I measure my frames?

Knowing the right measurement for your frames is important when shopping for glasses online. Check the inside of the temple arm and there should be some numbers there. These numbers are your frame measurements. Check out our tutorial on how to read frame measurements so you can be sure your're selecting glasses from EBD that fit you best.


If you can no longer read the numbers on the inside of your frame, you can always try measuring by hand. Just remember, when measuring frame width, you need to measure from temple screw to temple screw. For temple length you need to measure from the temple screw to the temple tip.

What kind of frames are sold at Glexal?

Glexal offers quality lenses that are checked for perfection at every step of our manufacturing process. We offer full rim, semi-rimless, and rimless frames to fit every style and budget.

Can I order lenses that are both color tinted and photochromic?

Unfortunately, no. Due to the way basic color tint and photochromic are applied, they cannot be applied to the same lens and you must choose one or the other.


Can I buy the frames alone?

Want to get some glasses and don't require a prescription? Choose "Non-prescription" lenses while in the "Usage" section of our lens selection process.


You should also select this option if you plan on taking your frame to an optician and have your lenses fitted by them since Glexal does not offer frames without lenses.


You can remove your lenses at home once your order has arrived.



What payment method do you accept?

We accept PayPal and Credit/Debit Card(including Master, Visa, Express, Discover) for our customers to effect payment. Currently, we do not accept check or money order.

What is "PD" and how do I get mine?

PD, or pupilalry distance, is the distance in millimeters between the center of one pupil to the other measured in millimeters. Your PD is usually included in your prescription. If not, you can measure your PD yourself.


How can I measure my PD?

You can do it yourself or have someone else measure it using a mirror and a ruler. Place a ruler, milimeter side up, directly under the center of your right or left pupil. While looking straight ahead, measure the distance from the center of your left pupil to the center of your right pupil. Repeat for accuracy. Note that the average PD is between 57 and 65mm.

Contact prescriptions and eyeglasses prescriptions differ and using them interchangeably will result in problems with your glasses. Make sure you have the correct prescription before entering it.
