Reglaze - new lenses in old frames
Love your old glasses, but need new lenses?
This solution offers great value and gives you a low cost way to try out SpecsPost. Prices start from as little as £10.
Why reglaze your old specs? The main reasons our clients use this service are:-
- A change of prescription following an eye test
- Scratched or broken lenses
- Frame was purchased elsewhere, but they would like us to add quality prescription lenses at a budget price
- Require a different type of lens for example they want to add Transitions lenses or a tint to turn their glasses into prescription sunspecs.
Reglaze: When is it not appropriate to add new lenses to an old / existing glasses frame?
If your frame is not in good condition then you should not opt for reglazing glasses. Remember, we offer a complete pair of decent quality specs made up to your single vision prescription for £10 (plus postage and packaging) so it is often cheaper to just buy a new complete pair of specs.
Need varifocals for the first time? Generally varifocal lenses (unless you pay top, top lens prices) require a deeper frame and the odds are that if your frame previously housed single vision lenses (unless you chose oversized geek chic/retro glasses) the frame will not have sufficient depth to accommodate a functional varifocal lens at an economic price.
Customers who go for the reglaze option generally have a high value designer frame in good condition or another frame which they absolutely love and is not longer available to buy.
Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee frames to be reglazed. If the frame is damaged in glazing the laboratory will not cover the costs. This is a rare occurence and most frames withstand the reglazing process.

Or if you need some help or a bespoke quote, simply give us a call or send us an email and we can quote you to put new lenses in your old specs frames.
If you are happy with the price then you simply need to send us the glasses (complete with your old lenses) together with a cheque for the quoted amount. We would strongly recommend using recorded delivery postage as we cannot be responsible for frames that get lost in the post and do not reach us.
We will reglaze your glasses and post them back to you within 10 working days.
