You may also ask your eyecare professional to send a copy of your prescription to us.


What if I don’t have my PD?
Your PD is the distance, in millimeters, between the centers of your pupils. This is important so we can position the lenses correctly in your frames.

PD’s for an adult typically fall between 54mm and 66mm.

NOTE: In States that Require it, PD must be done by a licensed optician or eye doctor.

How long after I order my eyeglasses can I expect to receive my order?
The production time for your eyeglasses includes several factors: the order options selected, if your prescription is complete, and when you place your order.

Because all of our eyeglasses come with custom manufactured lenses, most orders will be produced within 2-3 business days after your prescription has been verified. Orders received between 3:00 PM (MST) on Friday and 11:59 PM (MST) on Sunday will be processed the next business day.

Your glasses should arrive between 3-10 business days (including 1-4 days for shipping). Please contact us with any questions concerning the production and shipping time of your order.

Remember, if you choose to have Better Vision NJ validate your prescription or if the information is not complete, an extra day may be added to the production time of your eyeglasses. You will receive a shipment confirmation email when your order has been shipped from our lab.

What if my package is damaged when I receive it?
At Better Vision NJ we guarantee that you will receive exactly what you specified in your order and confirmed by your eye doctor’s prescription. We guarantee that all eyeglass orders will be delivered free of any manufacturer defects or we will replace them at no additional cost. If the package and eyeglasses are damaged, simply return the original package to be reprocessed using the packing slip included with your order.

If your package is not exactly as ordered when you receive it, contact our Customer Service professionals who will assist you and do whatever it takes to make things right.


How do I track my order?

How do I care for/clean my eyeglasses?
Proper care of your eyeglasses will increase your comfort and extend the life of your eyewear.
When not wearing your eyewear, keep them in their case. To avoid scratching, do not lay them face down.

Use both hands when removing your eyewear to maintain proper alignment.

Clean lenses with lens cleaner and cloth or warm water and mild soap with no additives. Additives can leave deposits on lenses.

Anti-reflective lenses require additional care to ensure your satisfaction
    •    Lens cleaner and cloth is recommended
    •    Dry lenses with a soft, lint-free cloth. Never use paper towels or other abrasive paper products.
    •    Avoid getting chemicals such as hair spray, cologne and household chemicals on the surface of your lenses.
    •    Do not leave your eyewear in the sun or in hot vehicles. Excessive heat can damage your frame, lenses and coatings.


Is it safe to use my credit card online?
Yes - Our e-commerce system uses SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) - the industry standard for encryption technology. It is used to create a secure transaction environment for commerce on the Internet. If your browser and local network support the use of encrypted data transmissions, our Secure Checkout mode locks all information (i.e.: your credit card number) passed from you to Better Vision NJ in an encrypted envelope, making it extremely difficult to be intercepted by an unauthorized party. SSL technology is compatible with most supported browsers.

When will my credit card be charged?
Your credit card will be processed at the time you place your order.

Do I need a copy of my prescription to order eyeglasses?
Better Vision NJ requires a valid prescription for all eyeglass orders. If you do not have a copy of your prescription, simply provide your eye doctor’s information during the ordering process and we would be happy to contact them for you to verify your prescription.  If you do have a copy, you may fax, e-mail, or upload a copy of the prescription during the ordering process for verification. NOTE: New York State residents must have their PD measured by a doctor or licensed optician.


How do I know if my prescription is valid?
Most prescriptions are valid for one or two years depending on the state. Better Vision NJ is an advocate of proper eye health and encourages all its customers to receive regular eye examinations. If your prescription is expired, a customer service representative will remind you to visit your eyecare professional and even help you make an appointment to receive a new or updated prescription.


How does prescription verification work?
During the registration process you will provide us with the name and phone number of the issuing authority and allow us to contact them and verify the validity and accuracy of your prescription information.


I have my contact prescription. Can I order glasses from it?
Unfortunately, No. Your eyeglass prescription is generally different from your contacts prescription.


How do I check on my order’s status?
Once you submit your order you will receive a confirmation e-mail. This is to let you know that we received your order. Prescription verification will take place to ensure we are sending you your glasses with the correct prescription. You will receive an e-mail confirming that your prescription has been verified and that your order is in process. Once your order is complete you will receive a third and final e-mail notifying you that your order has been shipped. In that e-mail we will provide you with a tracking number for your use.

If you have any further questions, please contact Customer Service using the information found at the bottom of the page.


Can I ship my eyeglasses to a location other than my billing address?
Yes. On the Confirm Purchase page, edit the shipping address.

We want you to be completely satisfied with your eyeglasses, so you may exchange or return them for a complete refund within 30 days from the date you first receive your eyewear.
