How do I know which lens material to choose?
The ideal material for your lenses depends on your prescription.
• Plastic lenses are recommended for light prescriptions, ranging from no correction to +/-1.75.
• Polycarbonate lenses are 30% thinner and lighter than plastic and recommended for people with prescriptions ranging from +/- 2.00 to +/-4.00. Polycarbonate is also recommended for children under 18 years of age and anyone who has an active lifestyle, due to its impact-resistance. Rimless and semi-rimless frames also work best with polycarbonate lenses.
• 1.67 Hi-Index lenses are 45% thinner than plastic lenses and help reduce the distortion of your eyes that people see when they look at you through your glasses. This lens material is recommended for people with prescriptions of +/- 2.00 and greater.
Which lens features should I choose for my eyeglasses?
All of our lenses come with a scratch-resistant coating, UV protection. Premium features can be added to your lenses if you choose the premium lens options.
• UV Protection is a clear coating that blocks the sun's harmful UV rays from reaching your eyes. UV protection is so important that we automatically include it with your order.
• Anti-Reflective (AR) coating eliminates the glare on the front and back of your lenses. AR is a must-have on any pair of Rx glasses, since it reduces eye strain and has easy to clean (super hydrophobic) properties.
• Digital Light Protection is a precision engineered lens coating that can deflect a significant portion of harmful blue/violet light, leaving your eyes fresh, even after a long day at the office in front of a screen.
• Transitions Lenses automatically lighten and darken to adjust to outdoor light conditions. This option is ideal for people who do not want to constantly switch back and forth between their prescription eyeglasses and prescription sunglasses.
What is the difference between bi-focal and progressive lenses?
Bifocal lenses offers two different viewing zones: the top part of the lens is for distance (i.e. to help you see things far away) and the lower part for the lens is for reading (i.e. to help you see things up close). The viewing zones of bi-focal lenses are divided by a visible line.
Progressive lenses are essentially no-line bi-focal. But instead of offering just two different viewing zones (near and far vision), progressive lenses offer many different focal points by seamlessly transitioning from distance vision to intermediate and near vision and everything in between. Progressive lenses provide much more natural vision and are typically recommended over bi-focal lenses.
Can I order lenses only?
Yes, robertandsonsoptical.com will allow you to purchase prescription lenses only. However, you must send us your eyeglass or frames before we can process your order because we will need to cut the prescription lenses to fit your exact frame
Can you replace the lenses I have in my current frame?
Yes, robertandsonsoptical.com can replace the prescription lenses in your current frame. However, you must send us your eyeglass frames before we can process your order because we will need to cut the prescription lenses to fit your exact frame.
I work on a computer all day. Can this hurt my eyes?
Computer monitors emit levels of radiation that are considerably lower than the maximum allowed for safety. Using the computer all day can therefore affect your eyes.
How long does it take to get my glasses?
On average it takes about one week for your eyeglasses to be ready for pickup. Although for single vision orders we do offer 24 hour service. Occasionally we can rush progressives to only a three day waiting time.
Can I use my insurance to pay for my glasses or contacts lenses?
Yes, robertandsonsoptical.com is an out-of-network provider for most insurance plans. Once you've placed your order, you can submit your prescription eyewear or contact lens purchase for reimbursement through your vision insurance provider

Do you supply internationally?
Yes, we deliver products in the sub region.
What does single-vision mean?
Single-vision means that you are either near sighted or far sighted, but not both (as is the case with people who need bi-focal or progressive lenses). Single-vision is the term used to refer to corrective prescription lenses that do not have multiple viewing zones, like bi-focal and progressives do.
What is pupillary distance (PD) and how do I measure mine?
Pupillary distance (PD) is simply the distance (in millimeters) between the centers of your pupils. PD is important because it helps our lab figure out where the optical center of your lenses should be.
