Relensing Glasses: Convenient and Ethical

Many of us have experienced the dilemma of deciding whether to buy a new frame or relens (fitting new lenses to) our current ones after a difference in prescription during an eye appointment. While some practices may push us to purchase a new frame, others may not allow us to relens unless it's their own brand, making the decision frustrating and expensive.

Relensing our existing frames offers both economic and environmental benefits. It saves us money, especially when our prescription is high or complex, as the lens technology becomes more sophisticated and costly. Moreover, it helps reduce waste and supports sustainability, as we don't contribute to fast fashion but rather to a more ethical and cyclical approach.

Relens my frames


To encourage a more conscious and sustainable approach, perhaps we should make a pact to relens our current frames and be more mindful when choosing our initial frames by opting for recycled and biodegradable materials instead of plastic.
