    • Acetate is a plant-based, non-petroleum product derived from wood pulp and cotton, allowing it to be stronger, more durable and more flexible than regular plastic. Consequently frames made with acetate are more resistant to pressure placed upon frames, which means it can be bent further before breaking. Eyewear that are made from acetate are environmentally friendly and considerably high quality.
    • Polycarbonate lenses are made of a more impact-resistant plastic than regular plastic lenses. Polycarbonate lenses are also significantly thinner and lighter than glass lenses. Polycarbonate is considerably a high quality plastic frame which is ideal for lightweight comfort to wear all day.

    • My finished frames arrived, but they fit crooked or too high/low. What should I do? This misfit can affect your vision if the lenses are not properly aligned with your pupils (PD measurement).

    What Is PD and how is it measured?

    • PD means “pupillary distance,” which is the distance between the center of each pupil. This measurement is used to determine where you look through the lens of your glasses. This is an extremely important number because it measures the distance between your eyes to ensure your pupils match up with the optical center of your lenses. If there is no PD on your prescription, checking with your eye doctor is recommended.
    • Please note that the average PD is between 54 and 78mm. This might be slightly different compared to practical measurements. Please be sure to measure your PD at least twice to get accurate results. 
    • Our advanced Virtual Try on automatically measures your PD with over a 90% accuracy fitting, please be sure to match our PD with the PD provided by your optometrist.
