Hi there, how can we help?
Why should I choose LOOK?
50% of adults will need vision correction by their mid-30’s and 70% by their mid-50’s. Just because your eyesight is changing, doesn’t mean you have to. LOOK readers are ultra-lightweight (so they never leave a mark), use the finest Italian designed spring-hinges, to ensure your comfort, and have prescription quality lenses allowing you to see the world like never before.
Why didn’t my optometrist recommend over the counter readers?
Optometrists have little incentive to tell you about over the counter readers as they specialize in helping you find the right frames and lenses. Before you get mad at your optometrist, to be fair, there are few options for readers that are of sufficiently high quality and design to warrant a recommendation from anyone, much less your optometrist.
Will readers negatively affect my vision?
There is no evidence that reading glasses will hurt your eyes or accelerate vision problems. Your lifestyle will suffer, however, if you can’t comfortably read a menu in a restaurant or a work email on a tablet or mobile device. Regardless, we do recommend that you see your ophthalmologist regularly to make sure readers are right for you and to obtain the correct prescription.

REPAIRS AND WARRANTIES
What if my LOOK glasses break?
If a screw becomes loose, which rarely happens, we hope that you can easily take care of that at home. If within one year of purchase, however, your LOOK OPTIC frames or lenses break as result of normal use, just send them back and we will either replace or repair them at no charge. A few examples of things that aren’t normal use include scratched lenses from throwing them in your purse or pocket, accidentally driving over them, stepping or sitting on them, or your dog eating your glasses. But if a hinge breaks within a year of purchase as a result of opening and closing the readers, we will be happy to issue a replacement.
Fitting and Care
What should I do if my LOOK OPTIC glasses do not fit properly?
Every pair of LOOK OPTIC frames come with Italian spring hinges and a wire core in the temples that should allow you to adjust the frames to suit your needs. However, you can always stop by an optical shop where a qualified optician can adjust them for you as well. Most optical stores will do the adjustments for a small fee or for free if you ask nicely.
How do I care for my glasses?
Like any pair of glasses keep them in their case when not being used, and try not to clean them with your shirt or other clothing that has been washed in chemicals or is abrasive. Use the LOOK case which comes with an attached microfiber cleaner so you won't lose it. We took special care to attach the microfiber because we couldn’t stop losing ours!
How do I know what lenses to choose?
If you are having trouble reading the fine print, we suggest you first visit your optometrist to ensure readers are right for you. When you’re ready to get your new LOOK glasses, we offer five different lens strengths to choose from. You can also print out an eye-chart here.
Do you offer frames with no magnification?
Our full line of Sun and Blue-light Readers are available with no magnification. You can also add Prescription Lenses to any of our frames. However, we no longer offer this service.
What are Blue-light readers?
Blue-light Readers help prevent Computer Vision Syndrome, or Digital Eye Strain, by blocking the blue light transmitted from your computer monitor, smart phone and tablet. Some studies suggest that too much exposure to blue light at night can disturb your sleep cycle, leading to problems sleeping and overall fatigue.
LOOK Blue-light Readers use RetinaShield TM Blue technology to provide clear lenses that filter out the dangerous band of blue-light from the UV spectrum. In addition, rather than using a coating like most blue-light protection lenses, RetniaShield TM lenses disperse the UV inhibitor in the lens material itself.
RetniaShield’s "in-mass" technology blocks light by absorbing it, while providing superior performance and longer lasting lenses (because scratches to the surface do not degrade their function). The “in-mass” technology also delivers a clear lens without a bluish reflection, so you can wear them anytime day or night, whether you are on your device or not.
Can I buy LOOK OPTIC in stores?
Do LOOK OPTIC readers come with a case?
Yes! You will receive a complimentary felt case with each frame you purchase. If you lose your case, just let us know and we will send you a new one for the cost of the shipping. Both the case that comes with your initial purchase and any replacement case you order will come with a microfiber cloth for safely cleaning your lenses. The microfiber is attached to the case so you won’t lose it and will always have handy a safe way to clean your lenses.
Who designs LOOK frames?
The individual who designed our original collection worked for Oliver Peoples earlier in his career, which explains the classic, timeless, styles. The overall collection and colors were curated by a close friend of LOOK who was recently admitted into the CFDA as one of the top new designers.
Our manufacturer is one of the best in the industry, making frames for many of the leading designer eye-wear brands in the world. LOOK glasses are the only reader they make and before they would agree to do business with us, we had to agree to adhere to that same level of quality as all of their other high-end brands. As a result, our lenses and hinges are sourced from around the world, and the custom finish is one of a kind when it comes to readers.
