We assume a certain level of understanding of your requirements for eyewear. If you have *ANY* questions, we encourage you to e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We strongly suggest that you register on the website prior to the selection of frames and lenses to ensure full accessibility to the lens and frame options available.
Once you know what you want, choose from the menu items across the top of the page or the menu items on the left side. These menu items are self-explanatory.
In the Filter Eyewear category, we offer 6 different styles or types of filters. This category is to select the FILTER ONLY.
Once you have selected and added your filter to the shopping cart, the next step is to select a frame. Click on the Continue Shopping button and you will be back to the Filter Type Selection page. In the middle of your screen, you will see "Find-A-Frame".
We can custom-fit our lenses into a frame that you supply. However, we are taking a stricter approach to the types of frames we accept. Thin-rim and sunglass frames are no longer accepted without prior approval as we cannot guarantee that the lenses will fit properly in the frame due to the lens retention rim found on the backside of the lens bevel in the frame.
We ask that frames sent into us for filter insertion be capable of handling a prescription thickness lens – this means that frames should be prescription-style instead of sunglass-style.
We also have some restrictions on the size of the frame and how the lenses are mounted (these are noted in the selection for "Your Frame"), so it's best to contact us via e-mail and we can properly discuss the frame you would like to use. Pictures are always helpful, but if you don't have a picture, send a link to the frame and we can take a look.
If you would like us to install our lenses into your supplied frame, click on the 'Find-A-Frame' icon and select 'Your Frame' for the frame selection. Finish the checkout (including registration if necessary), then pack up your frame and send it to us with a copy of your order.
SPECIAL NOTE: Frames supplied to us by you are not warrantied. You are supplying them at YOUR RISK. We will always make our best effort to ensure that the frames are handled safely and correctly, but we cannot guarantee that they will stay that way once they leave our hands.
If you are buying one of our frames, click on any frame-line icon to see that particular list of available frames. In each grouping, you can narrow the selection by filtering by Frame Style, Frame Material, Spring Hinges, and Face Fit.
That's pretty much all there is to it.
Thank you for selecting Aura Visual Concepts as your filter eyewear provider!
