How are Prescription Glasses Made?


Making prescription glasses is a meticulous process that involves several intricate stages, akin to crafting a masterpiece from raw materials. Here at Rx-Safety, we take pride in our craftsmanship and attention to detail, ensuring that each pair of glasses meets the precise requirements of our customers. Let’s take a closer look at the journey your prescription lenses undergo before they reach your hands.

Crafting Prescription Glasses: A Step-by-Step Journey


1. Frame Selection & Lens Retrieval

When your order lands in our lab, we handpick the perfect frame and pair it with semi-finished lenses from our vast stock.

2. Prescription Input & Tracing

Next, your prescription details are carefully entered into our computer system, guiding the tracing machine to outline the frame’s lens pocket accurately.


3. Lens Blocking & Prescription Generation

We securely attach small tools to the lenses, ensuring they stay in place during the shaping process without any damage. Your prescription is then meticulously applied to the lenses, akin to rough sanding wood, starting with opaque surfaces and refining them gradually.


4. Fining & Polishing

Through multiple polishing stages, we transform rough lenses into smooth, clear surfaces, resembling the art of refining wood with finer and finer sandpapers.


5. LENS Inspection

After polishing, lenses undergo rigorous inspection before receiving specialized coatings in-house or through external partners.

6. Edging

Next, the lenses are edged. Our precision CNC edging machines sculpt lenses to fit your frame flawlessly, considering both frame dimensions and optical requirements.


7. Final Inspection, Tinting, & Coating

Lenses are subjected to a final quality check, and additional treatments such as tinting or coatings are applied to meet your preferences.

8. Lens Placement & Quality Check

With lenses carefully inserted into the frame, a meticulous quality check ensures they meet stringent standards for clarity and accuracy.


9. Packing & Shipping

Once approved, your glasses are meticulously packed and dispatched, ready to enhance your vision and style!
