5 Reasons you Shouldn't Buy Replacement Sunglass Lenses (And Why You Should Ignore Them)

If you're considering replacing the lenses on your favorite sunglasses, you may have heard some objections, or even thought of some of these yourself. But don't let them get you down! Here are five common reasons not to buy replacement sunglass lenses, and why you should ignore them.

  1. "It's cheaper to buy a new pair of sunglasses."

Sure, if you're made of money, go ahead and splurge on a new pair of shades. But if you're like the rest of us, replacing your lenses is the more affordable option. There may be cheaper sunglass frames out there, but in most cases, you are sacrificing lens durability and visual acuity to save few bucks. Plus, you get to keep your beloved frames! It's a win-win.

  1. "The replacement lenses won't fit your frames."

With Fuse, this doesn't even need to be on your radar! We have replacement lenses that are made to fit a variety of frames, including popular brands like Ray-Ban and Oakley. Plus, even if you end up with the wrong model or size lenses, we've got you covered with our fit guarantee and can even bring your frames into our lab to create custom lenses, made for you! So go ahead, give them a try worry-free! 

  1. "The replacement lenses won't be as high-quality as my original lenses."

At Fuse, we use optical grade Polycarbonate for our lenses that are the same (or better) material than the top sunglass brands. We even have color enhancing lens technology that some name brands don't even offer! You don't have to take our word for it though, you can read reviews from hundreds of customers across our site. So don't be afraid to give them a shot!

  1. "You have to wait too long to get your sunglasses back."

What if I told you you don't even have to send your frames in? All you need to do is search for your sunglass model on our site, choose your lenses, and we send out the lenses for you to install at home. Easy. The only time we require the frames is for custom or prescription lenses. And then, the wait will be worth it when you have your favorite sunglasses back in action.

  1. "It's not worth the hassle of sending your sunglasses in for replacement."

Even if you are ordering custom lenses and need to send in your sunglasses, the process is actually pretty easy. After checkout, our team even ships you out a pre-paid shipping box with everything you need! All you need is to pop your shades back in your mailbox, no extra trips or hassle required. Plus, our customer service is here to help you out with any questions you may have. You got this!


In conclusion, don't let the haters get you down! Replacing your sunglass lenses is a smart and cost-effective choice. Ignore the objections and go for it. Your favorite sunglasses will thank you. Plus, with Fuse Lenses' 60-day guarantee and included warranty on every purchase - what do you have to lose?
