FAQ’s

What do I need before ordering from you?

All you need to shop with us is your prescription which should not be more than two years old. You can however, place an order and forward your prescription to us afterwards.

How do I obtain my prescription?

If you are in Australia, then in accordance with the Australian Opticians Act, it is the obligation of any optician to provide you with your prescription. The optician will provide you with a thorough eye examination and is required by law to provide you with a copy of your prescription for your own records. You are not under any obligation to purchase your glasses from your optician - so do not feel pressured into doing so!

How do I get prescription lenses for the frames I like?

Please select the frame and lens of your choice, email or download your prescription and we will process your order.

Will the frames I’ve chosen, accommodate my prescription?

Most of our frames accommodate all prescriptions. Please send us your latest prescription details and we will take a look for you. You can send an email to sales@spiritualeyes.com.au 

Do you sell prescription glasses for children?

Yes, we have a beautiful range of frames that we can make into prescription glasses for your child, we do recommend that you upgrade to a thin lens for durability. 

Do I need to send you a copy of my prescription?

Yes, but not right away. You can either email your prescription details at the time of order or upload a copy on our site. We always advise that you have an up to date prescription (i.e. not more than two years old, when ordering).

I can't find an 'addition' reading on my prescription - what do I do?

If your glasses are for distance only, you don't need to worry about the addition. The addition value is only required if the glasses are going to be used for reading or other close-distance work. Sometimes opticians use the word 'ADD' or 'Near' instead of 'addition'. They may also write it just once, but, since it normally applies to both eyes, is almost always the same value for both.  

How strong a prescription can you cater for?

We cater for most complex prescriptions, please send your prescription through and we will take a look, before advising you of your best lens and frame options.

Can I use my contact lenses prescription for ordering glasses from you?

No, your contact lenses will have a different prescription as these are worn on the eye, whereas your glasses rest a short distance away from the eye.

I'm unsure about how to enter my prescription online. Can I send it to you instead?

Yes, you can. If you are uncertain as to how to go about it, you can email us a copy of your prescription and we will attach it to your order for you. Send to sales@spiritualeyes.com.au 

What is my pupillary distance (PD), and how do I find out what it is?

PD (pupillary distance) is the distance measured in millimeters between the centers of the pupils of the eyes. We will need your PD to complete your order and it can be written on your prescription.

If we are styling you in person, all measurements are taken for you. 

To place an on line order, there are 3 easy ways to obtain your PD: 

1) You can contact your optometrist and ask them for your PD

2) Follow the link to measure it yourself

*Please note all glasses will be made to the measurement you provide.

Why are SpiritualEyes prices low?

Our prices are lower than those you would find in high street stores as we are a mobile/ online  service with lower operating costs, for example we do not have to rent expensive prime location property or pay for the upkeep of numerous items of expensive eye testing machinery. The savings we make are passed on to you, our customers, through the low prices of our products. 

What material are the lenses made of?

The glasses we supply come with plastic optical lenses which comply with FDA certified requirements. 

 Don't plastic lenses scratch?

Even though plastic lenses are softer than the traditional glass lenses, they are considerably lighter and much safer. Our lenses have a hard scratch-resistant protection built into the lens, a hard treatment that is specifically designed to resist scratches, however, please note that it is not scratch proof.  

Do you sell varifocal/multifocal/progressive lenses?

Yes, we do. Multifocal progressive lenses contain 2 or more lens powers to help you see objects at all distances after losing the ability to naturally change the focus of your eyes due to age (presbyopia).

I love my existing frame. Can you reglaze this for me?

Yes, we can! Our reglazing service starts from just AUD $50.00. Just email your prescription to us for an exact quote and our customer service team will contact you to discuss the cost of fitting lenses into your own frame and the risks involved. 

Do I need to order thin lenses?

The need to order thin lenses depends on your prescription and the frame you choose. We recommend thin lenses if your spherical power is +2.50 or -2.50 or above. This is particularly important if you are choosing a semi-rimless or nylon frame. These frames expose the lenses and choosing thin lenses improves aesthetics and overall face value! 

What sort of frames will suit me?

The shape of your face is an important factor, along with colour and personality.  The list below should give a broad idea as to frame designs:

  • Round Faces- Rectangular frames would be most suitable.
  • Oval Faces- Most frames suit this face shape; size is the most important point when deciding here.
  • Triangular Faces- Rectangular frames would be most suitable.
  • Square Faces- Oval or round frames would be most suitable.
  • Rectangular Faces- Oval and round frames would be most suitable with medium - or larger-sized models.

What is the cost of shipping (postage & packaging)?

The cost of shipping for orders will be calculated at checkout. Note though, you can choose a delivery address that is different from the billing address. So, for example, your billing address can be your home address, but you can choose to have the glasses delivered to your office, or even another state or country if purchasing as a gift. The shipping costs will always be calculated on the delivery address provided.

Please note that any local duties and taxes levied by your country of destination are to be paid by the customer. We have no jurisdiction on such charges.
