What do I need to order Prescription Oakleys?

All you really need is your valid prescription, usually dated within the last year. If ordering through your optician, we’d suggest knowing the frame and lens combination you’d like by browsing Oakleys website in advance. If ordering direct from Oakley, you’ll proceed with order same as any sunglasses. After checkout you’ll be prompted to submit your prescription for review and order confirmation.

Where can I find discounts on Prescription Oakleys?

If you’re looking for cheap prescription Oakleys, you’ll want to shop around and keep an eye out for discounts at your optician of choice.

A better option to save may be to purchase the frames in a second hand market such as our Sunglasses Exchange area or eBay, saving off retail then bring them to your optician for lenses. Remember when buying second hand you’ll want to avoid fake Oakleys and make sure your eye doc will cut lenses for your Oakleys before buying!
