Step Seven: Send Us Your Prescription (optional)

 At L.A. Lens we offer a number of different options for Prescription lens wearers. Depending on the type of loupes you choose (TTL or Flip-Up) and your frame choice, the prescription placement location will vary. We are able to place your prescription in either the back of the optical barrels, in the frame lenses, or both. Where we place it will depend on the type of loupes and fame choice. 
Please see our chart below for the prescription option for our Through-The-Lens and Flip-Up loupes.
We will need to receive a written copy of your current eyeglass prescription that includes your Pupillary Distance (PD) measurement before processing your order. Please ask your optician to fax your prescription to (424) 327- 2543.
