Bobster® provides the opportunity for customized prescription lenses for the majority of eyewear styles available. Prescription lenses take between 2-3 weeks to complete with the lenses ground and mounted into newly or previously purchased eyewear. Before placing your prescription order please check to make sure your prescription fits within the Rx limitations of your specific style of eyewear, which can be found on the individual product page in their specifications tab. The eyewear (frame or bezel lenses) must be sent to Bobster® along with your prescription order form in order to have your prescription lenses properly mounted (unless you purchase both your frames and RX lenses at the same time through the website). A photocopy of your complete prescription (PD# MUST be included) from your optometrist is required to start processing the prescription lens order. Without the PD# (Pupil Distance) included on the prescription orders cannot begin processing and will result in a delay. If the prescription itself is more than two years old, an updated form must be written by your optometrist for accurate information. Eyewear may also be purchased at the same time the prescription order is placed although it is recommended to first ensure the eyewear fit is acceptable before a prescription order is set up.
All RX sales are final
There are Rx limitations to all of the Rx ready eyewear depending on several different factors. Your prescription will be modified to compensate for the wrap angle of the frame. This will allow the lenses to be effectively mounted into the frame or bezels while achieving the necessary ability of your prescription.
Frames with interchangeable non-prescription lenses will no longer be interchangeable (unless the eyewear has bezel lenses—see bezel lens description below) because the newly ground prescription lenses must be permanently mounted into the frame to correctly retrofit the lenses to your prescription. You may also find extra frame fronts available for purchase in order to have multiple prescription lenses/colors for a single style.

Bezel Lens Description:
Specific styles of Bobster® are made to hold and easily interchange bezel lenses. Lenses are fit into a “rim” which clips in and out of the eyewear frame making it quick and easy to interchange between day and night. This is also a great way to have versatility when having a prescription done in multiple shades of lenses.
**Any Bobster Ballistics item that uses bezel lenses for RX capability is not approved for ballistics usage and has not been tested for ballistics impact because currently there is no MCEPS testing standard for RX bezel lenses. However the bezel lenses have been fully certified to the ANSI Z87.1 + testing and impact standards.

Q: Where can I find the price of RX lenses?
A: Either on the order form or click on one of the lenses above to find the price.
Q: Does the price of the RX lens include the cost of the eyewear?
A: No you must purchase the eyewear separately and also purchase the lenses.
Q: Are the lenses still interchangeable once I put a prescription lens in them?
A: Only if the eyewear offers bezel lenses which have a plastic piece holding the prescription lens. There is also the option of purchasing a 2nd frame front (if the eyewear is convertible) so they can be interchanged.
Q: What kind of warranty do RX orders have?
A: If there is a defect in the frame or some other component of the eyewear we will remount the lenses, but we do not warranty any part of the lenses.
Q: Does Bobster accept any vision insurance?
Q: What is PD and how do I get that number?
A: Pupilliary distance (PD) is the distance between your pupils and without this we are unable to determine where the center of the eye is in relation to the lenses, which can cause eye strain, headaches, fatigue and/or dizziness. You can get your PD measured by any licensed eye doctor or optician and most optical stores will provide this service free of charge.
Q: What lens material is used for prescription orders?
A: We only use high impact polycarbonate lenses unless otherwise noted.
