How do I measure my PD?

See our guide to easily measure PD on your own or follow these 3 simple steps:

  • 1. Look in the mirror and line up a ruler between your eyes.
  • 2. Make sure the ruler is lined exactly underneath the middle of the left pupil.
  • 3. Measure the exact distance between your left pupil and your right pupil in millimeters.

What is a PD value?

Great question! Your PD (pupillary distance) measures the distance from the center of one pupil to the other pupil in millimeters.

This measurement helps produce properly focused lenses for the most accurate vision. PD ensures that you’re looking through the optical center.

If you don’t know your PD, we’ll use the average PD which is 62 mm. It’s the most common measurement and it fits all.

Do you offer prescription sunglasses?

We sure do. Unless mentioned otherwise, all of our sunglasses, whether house or designer brand, are eligible with all types of prescription lenses: Reading, distance and multifocals.

How do I get my prescription?

Make an appointment with your optician or local vision centre for an eye exam. While you're there, be sure to ask for your PD (pupillary distance) measurements. If you've had an exam within the last two years, ask your doctor to send you a copy.

What if I don't have a valid prescription?

Sure. You can complete your order and send us your prescription after, via email ([email protected]) or fax (1-844-646-7470). We'll wait for your valid prescription before we start crafting your glasses.

Can I purchase just frames without the lenses?

Want glasses without prescription lenses? Simply choose ""Non-Prescription"" lenses in the lens selection page. You can remove the lenses once your order has arrived.

What is Prism correction?

Prism correction is used for people who experience some form of double vision or vision displacement (seeing separate images of the same object). With Prism, the separate images are aligned, and the person wearing the glasses no longer experiences double vision. If a Prism correction doesn’t appear on the prescription from your doctor, do not add when filling your RX online, as it will affect your vision negatively.

Should I select a Distance or Reading prescription?

You should choose Distance or Reading based on what you use your glasses for. If it’s for everyday use and multiple activities, select Distance. If it’s only for reading and seeing things up close, select Reading.

Do I need glasses with progressive lenses?

Progressive lenses include multiple vision corrections in one lens, for far away, intermediate and up close (reading). Each part of the lens is used for a different distance, with the reading section at the bottom of the lens. It requires looking through a different part of the lens for each distance in order to see clearly. Prescriptions for progressive glasses will include an ADD value, which is left empty on prescriptions for single-vision (Distance or Reading only) glasses.

Contact Lenses

How long does it take to validate my prescription?

Usually no longer than 48 hours. Just provide us with your doctor details and we will do the rest.

What if I wear a different brand on each eye?

On the product page make sure to uncheck the box next to "Left Eye" and enter your prescription in the "Right Eye" section. Once done, continue by clicking the "Add to Cart" button.

Now that you've done that, just proceed to your left eye's brand page by finding it on the left side navigation bar. Once you get to its product page, make sure to uncheck the "Right Eye" box. Enter your prescription in the "Left Eye"section. When you are finished, click Add to Cart.

Click the shopping cart and make sure that both brands appear there. Once you are sure your order is right, click "Continue Order" to proceed.

What is your return policy for contacts?

If your prescription has changed, you can return all unused lenses, as long as they're still sealed in their original packaging and as long as it’s within the first 30 days of receiving them. Once we confirm your new prescription, we will send your new lenses back to you.

How do I know if my prescription is still valid?

Eye health and safety tips during COVID-19.

At a time when we're all concerned about preventing the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19, experts agree: wash your hands well and often, and keep your hands away from your mouth, nose and especially your eyes.

Proper eye care is vital now more than ever. We at Benesee.com are particularly concerned with providing you reliable information about the best practices for protecting your eyes during the COVID-19. So remember:

  • -Resist the urge to touch or rub your eyes. If you must, it's preferable to use a tissue rather than your fingers.
  • -The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends thoroughly washing your hands with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds. (How long is that? Sing the "Happy Birthday" song to yourself twice.) Wash the back of your hands, wrists, between your fingers and under your fingernails.

For contact lens wearers, proper care and hygiene are especially vital. Anyone using contact lenses should heed the advice on proper contact lens use during this public health crisis, including the following recommendations:

1. Opt For Eyeglasses

  • -Consider switching to wearing your eyeglasses for a while. You'll completely avoid the need to deal with your lens care, cleaning and applying routines, and you'll be less inclined to rub your eyes. Who knows, you may even decide to don these stylish frames more often!
  • -It's good practice for contact lens wearers to maintain a pair of backup eyeglasses. Remember, Benesee.com makes it easy for you to find quality and affordable eyeglasses online.
  • -Browse our selection of thousands of frames, and even try them on with our Virtual Mirror, all from the convenience of your own home.


2. Practice Good Contact Lens Care

If you choose to continue to wear your contact lenses, you must be extra vigilant about following recommended practices.

  • -Maintain the recommended procedures for routine cleaning and storage of your lenses.
  • -Before touching your lenses, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds. Be sure to dry your hands completely before putting in your lenses.
  • -Do not wear your contact lenses for longer than the recommended period of time.
  • -Discontinue contact lens use and seek medical advice promptly if you experience any eye-related discomfort or symptoms such as redness, soreness or swelling.


3. Bad Contact Lens Habits to Avoid

These potentially harmful contact lens habits should always be avoided, but are especially unsafe during this COVID-19 outbreak:

  • -Never put in or take out your contact lenses using tap water or saliva. Always use the proper solutions.
  • -Do not put in a dropped lens without properly cleaning it first.
  • -Avoid touching or rubbing your eyes.
  • -Do not share your lenses.
  • -Do not reuse daily disposable lenses.

Keep yourself safe and informed.

How to keep my glasses from fogging up when wearing face masks.

One of the various health measurements taking during the Covid-19 pandemic, is the use of face masks when going out of the house. For people who wear glasses, this is a big problem, since glasses fog up every time you exhale. This is not only annoying, but also dangerous because you keep touching your face and eyes to wipe your glasses. Here are some tips & tricks you can follow to keep your glasses from fogging up:

  • - Place a tissue at the top of your mask over the bridge of your nose. This will absorb the moist coming from the face mask and stop your glasses from fogging up.


  • - Before putting on the mask, wash your glasses with soap water and shake off the excess. Then, let the lenses air dry or dry them with a cloth before putting them back on. cleaning the lenses with soapy water makes it more difficult for moisture to condense.


  • - Use a metal nose clip: purchasing face masks with nose clips or adding them yourself, allows you to create a better seal around your nose that will prevent you from getting your glasses fogged up. If you are making your own mask, you can add either a paper clip or a metal fastener, but be careful as these metal parts can get near your eyes.
