Getting non-prescription lenses for glasses

Post by michaeljc70 » Tue May 14, 2019 2:26 pm

I am asking for a family member. They have a pair of designer glasses that were purchased to wear just for looks. When they got them, there were non-prescription demo lenses in them. However, they have the designers name in small letters on the right lens which they couldn't see in the online photo. I scraped the insignia with my fingernail and it isn't an easily removable sticker. Is there a way to remove this insignia? If not, where can you get non-prescription lenses for a reasonable price? I inquired at Costco and they said they don't offer non-prescription lenses. I looked on some websites where you send in frames and it seems they all want a prescription and don't mention non-prescription lenses. I'm sure an eye doctor place would be expensive.

The frames are by Zegna if it matters.

A quick google search shows this for $39

Thanks. I'll check it out. I think part of my problem was I think I was searching for "clear" or "blank" lenses which isn't the right term. That's what I originally had in the post but then updated it.
