Prescriptions

I have a strong prescription — are you able to fill it? What if I have astigmatism?

We can provide lenses for a wide range of prescriptions including scripts with astigmatism.

If you have a SPH value stronger than ±4.00 & CYL value stronger than ±3.00 on your prescription, you will be given an option in the checkout to upgrade to high index lenses.

If you have astigmatism, a CYL value will also be on your prescription.

If you wish to only wish to purchase the frames alone and visit your local optician to fill your lenses, when adding your frame selection to cart - please select the option to enter in your prescription and select SPH 0.00 (plano).

What is my pupillary distance and how do I measure it?

Your pupillary distance (PD) is the distance in millimetres between the center of one pupil to the center of the other pupil. This measurement is used to determine the location of the optical center to correctly position lenses.

If your PD is not recorded on your prescription, visit your optician or a nearby optical store to have it measured professionally. We are also happy to measure your PD if you visit us at one of our stores.

Do you offer multifocal or progressive lenses?

Yes we do! Although, you must visit one of our six stores to be correctly measured for these lenses. Total cost for Multifocal / Progressive lenses and frames are $349. Please email us if you have any questions!

Otherwise, you can always purchase the frames as non prescription and visit your local optician to fill your lenses. 

Do you offer reading glasses?

Of course we do! Just select the frames you’d like to buy and click the “Add to Cart” button to add them to your shopping cart. During checkout, you’ll be given the option to purchase prescription or non-prescription, distance or reading glasses. Select “Single Vision Near” and you’ll be able to select the appropriate lens magnification strength.

Can I use my contact lens prescription to order glasses?

The prescriptions used for contact lenses and eyeglasses are different. Glasses sit approximately 12 millimetres away from the eye, whilst contact lenses sit directly on the eye. Because of this difference, the lenses used will differ in strength and aren’t interchangeable. For legal and safety reasons, we cannot use your contact lenses prescription to fill your order.

How do I get my prescription?

If you don’t have a copy of your prescription handy, and you’ve recently had an eye exam, simply call your optician and ask them to provide the information needed. They are required by law to provide you with this information.

If your prescription has expired, you’ll need to visit your optician to take an eye exam and obtain an up-to-date prescription. You can always book an eye test at any Oscar Wylee store.

If the prescription provided from an external optometrist is incorrect or if the prescription is no longer valid, purchasers agree that Oscar Wylee is not responsible for the cost of remake.

I don’t know how to enter my prescription on your website. Can I send it to you another way?

You sure can. Simply email us a copy at info@oscarwylee.com, or fax it to us at (02) 8355 4640. When you send us your prescription, please include your name, email address and order number. If you have any questions, feel free to call us at (02) 8355 4646.

My prescription doesn’t have a “CYL” or “AXIS” value.

All this means is that you don’t have astigmatism. If you don’t have a “CYL” or “AXIS” value, your optician will either leave the column blank, or write “SPH” or “DS” to clarify you only have a Sphere measurement for this eye. If this is the case, simply leave the "CYL" and "AXIS" fields empty during the checkout process.

Can I order frames without prescription lenses?

Yes! While adding your product to cart, please select the 'non-prescription' to enter in your prescription and follow the remaining prompts.
