In addition, some stores accept their own mall gift cards. SEE online accepts Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express. Sorry, we don’t barter for livestock or take I.O.U notes.
Q: Can I pay using my Flex Spending or Health Savings Account card?
A: Sure, as long as it is associated with a major credit card.
Q: What is your return policy?
A: Every order is custom, so we cannot return the glasses once the order is in process. For non-prescription sunglasses we don’t offer refunds, but store credit will be given within 10 days for glasses returned in spanking new condition.
Q: How do I change or cancel my order?
A: Not that we don’t love you, but orders can only be changed or canceled on the same day. Once in process we can’t cancel an order. Go ahead, call us ogres. Your glasses are being custom made just for you!
Q: What is your warranty policy?
A: We've put together some very special pricing to help take the pain out of replacing your SEE prescription glasses (this is a gouge free environment, remember?). If your SEE glasses need to be replaced because you dropped them while doing something uber exciting or you were just going about your biz and they were damaged somehow (lenses scratched, broken temples, etc.), bring them in and we'll get you a new pair for 50% off the total package price. If you only need new lenses, those are half off as well. When we say 50% off the total, that includes coatings, progressives, etc.
Now, let's say we don't have your exact frame because you obviously have stellar taste and we sold out of it. In that case, pick out something new and we'll still give you 50% off.
Fair enough, huh? Of course, we're talking the first year only, and just one time.
We know Fido has great taste in eyewear, but sometimes he can get carried away. With the exception of loss, your prescription glasses come with a 50% off warranty for damaged or broken frames and lenses one time in the first year.
Due to the delicate nature of the material and the limited supply of our SEE Buffalo Horn Capsule Collection, these frames are not subject to warranty. However, we’re not complete ogres so we would be happy to warranty 50% of your lenses within one year.
Q: Do you ever have sales? What about coupons?
A: Psh, who needs sales when you can get in on our Bribes and Secret Offers! Sign up for those and we’ll send you invites for our events, info on charity programs, and some really rad bribes.
Q: When you say “voted best eyewear,” what do you really mean?
A: Well, we don’t want to be major braggadocios but we’ve been voted “Best Eyewear” across the country! From Boston to San Francisco, Detroit to Nashville, we’re popping up on “Best of” lists year after year.
Q: Is SEE an acronym?
A: Yes, it stands for Selective Eyewear Elements.
Q: What type of lenses do you offer?
A: The very best available from names like Seiko and Essilor. They supply first quality hard-coated lenses with superior scratch resistance and UV protection.
Q: Can I get thin, lightweight lenses for my prescription?
A: Absolutely! We recommend polycarbonate, Trivex or Superthin High-Index lenses to produce a thin lightweight pair of eyeglasses.
Q: Do you offer bifocal or progressive lenses?
A: All of our SEE stores offer bifocal and progressive lenses! We strongly recommend our SEE HD lenses, which are made in Michigan at our state-of-the-art laboratory for the most precise vision at all distances (trust us, you’ll love them!).
Q: Do you offer special lenses for extended computer use?
A: We sure do! Our SEE HD Websight Lenses® are designed to provide the best vision for extended computer use. With wide intermediate and reading areas to accommodate clear vision at the computer monitor or laptop/tablet distance, these special purpose lenses are prescribed specifically to reduce eyestrain and give you the most comfortable vision possible in front of your computer/device.
Q: What applications do you recommend?
A: We highly recommend every pair of eyeglasses should have a multi-layered anti-reflection application. This sharpens your vision and allows others to see your beautiful eyes more clearly.
Q: What lenses do you recommend for sunglasses?
A: We recommend polarized sun lenses because they perform best outdoors. They block harmful UV rays and surface glare.
Q: Do you offer tinted fashion lenses?
A: But of course. Our SEE stores offer a rainbow of colors, tinted in solid, gradient and double gradient. In addition, we have our very own lens recipes consisting of vibrant colors in double gradients with a light flash mirror.
Q: What’s the best way to clean my lenses?

Q: My lenses are scratched. What should I do?
A: In most cases, new lenses are the best/only option. However, they may be covered under warranty if they are less than a year old. Feel free to check with the store where you ordered them.
Q: Can you replace lenses in my existing SEE frames?
A: We sure can, as long as the frame is in good condition. Stop by your local SEE store so we can evaluate and price new lenses for you.
Q: Can you replace the lenses in my non-SEE frames?
A: Yes, in most cases. Stop by your local SEE store so we can evaluate and price new lenses for you.
Q: How do I get a prescription?
A: You’ve come to the right place! Most SEE locations have an independent doctor of optometry on site to provide comprehensive eye exams, so you can schedule an exam with them and pick out a new pair of specs all in the same day! West Palm Beach and some California stores do not offer exams.
Q: How long is my prescription good for?
A: That’ll depend on your doctor, but the standard for most states is one year.
Q: Do you keep my prescription on file?
A: We know you won’t be able to resist buying new frames once in a while, so we certainly keep your prescription on file.

A: We can help you with PD measuring! Click here for instructions and to watch our super fun PD video.
Q: I have a contact lens prescription; can I use this for my glasses?
A: Your contact lens prescription and your eyeglass prescription are two different prescriptions. Eyeglass prescriptions can sometimes be more comprehensive for your vision, so your glasses will need to be made to your eyeglass prescription specifications.
Q: How do I get a copy of my prescription?
A: Easy! Call the Doctor where you had your last exam. The office should be able to email, fax, or mail it to you. If you have had your exam at your local SEE store, we will be happy to dispense your valid prescription to you.
Q: Can you use the prescription off of my current pair of glasses?
A: We want to give you the best, most accurate vision so that we can achieve the perfect specs for you. We will need a written copy of your valid prescription in order to do that.
