A: All Fuse Lenses options are made from optical grade polycarbonate, filter out 100% of harmful UV light, and surpass all ANSI Z87.1 safety standards in independent tests. Fuse +Plus Premium Polarized lenses are all polarized for glare reduction, feature our Clear Guard hydroleophobic coating for easier cleaning, an Ion backside Anti-Reflective coating to block distracting light, and a stronger Fuse Force hard coating for up to 2.6 times more scratch resistance than our standard lenses. Fuse Standard Lenses are available in polarized or tinted (non-polarized) options and do not feature any special coatings. Check Out our Lens Science page for more details.
Are these OEM, and do they have the brands laser mark on them? e.g. Ray-Ban or Costa Del Mar
A: No, Fuse Lenses manufactures its own line of optical grade polycarbonate lenses. We are not affiliated with any other company. Our lenses are custom cut to fit into the brands and models of sunglasses listed. They are not OEM (Original) lenses and will not feature any other brand’s logo on them.
Is it easy for me to change the lenses in my sunglasses myself?
A: Yes! Here is a link to a video showing just how easy it is to install these lenses yourself: Fuse Lenses Videos. I think you may be surprised at how simple it is. We make our lenses in a way that is easy to interchange with your frames. This way, you can change your lenses to suit your mood without having to worry about damaging your frame.
I don't see my sunglasses listed, can I still get lenses?
A: Check out our Custom Lens Program! If you are a U.S. Resident, we offer a custom program where we email you a shipping label for your frame and a PayPal invoice (payable by any major credit card). Once your frame and your payment is received, we will process and ship your frames back to you with the lenses already installed. The cost is $20.00 for processing (includes shipping), plus the price of the lenses.
Q: Do you sell prescription lenses for sunglasses?
Q: Are both right & left lenses included? Do you sell just single left or right lens?
A: Each order includes a full set of lenses - Right & Left. We do not sell only a single left or right lens, as Fuse Lenses are custom colors and will not match OEM (Original) lenses.
Q: What is your darkest lens?
A: Our Fuse +Plus Glacier Mirror Polarized lenses are going to be the darkest polarized option, at 8 percent visible light transmission (VLT). Our darkest tinted (non-polarized) lenses are the Sapphire or Chrome Mirrors, with a VLT of 7 percent for both.
Q: Which lenses are best for fishing?
A: Offshore Bright Days - Grey Polarized Lenses: The dark color and low light transmission really helps with the glare and bright sun. The grey lens color also enhances the blue/green water. Flats, Beach, & Fly Fishing - Brown Polarized Lenses: These lenses will give you the best color contrast, which helps for sighting fish, seeing bottom contours, and wading. Low Light (Dawn, Dusk, Clouds & Rain) - Yellow Polarized Lenses: These lenses let in more light, which will change your vision from dark and dreary to bright and crisp. Note - Salt Water: Salt is corrosive to the metal on your sunglasses and the mirror finishes on lenses. Left to dry, salt can scratch lenses. Be sure to run your sunglasses under clean fresh water to remove salt and keep your glasses, and lenses, in top condition.
Q: Are tinted lenses polarized?
A: Nope! On our site, and in the optical world, anything that states the lens is “tinted” just means it is a colored, non-polarized lens. All listings that are polarized will be labeled as polarized.
Q: The lenses I am interested in are out of stock - when will you have them in?
A: We apologize for this inconvenience. Any items showing out of stock are on order and should arrive soon. If you wish to be notified when a lens is back in stock, please contact Customer Service with the lens you wanted and your email.
Q: How long until I get my lenses?
A: We get started custom cutting your lenses the next business day after your order is placed! Most domestic orders choosing free shipping will arrive within 7-10 business days. Priority Shipping also receives priority processing and will arrive sooner.
Q: How much is shipping - USA & International?
A: Fuse Lenses offers Free First Class shipping for domestic orders (including US Territories, Puerto Rico, USVI, Guam, APO, etc...). International First Class is $9. You can also pay to upgrade to priority or express mail. For more information, please visit our shipping information page.
Q: How do I add shipping to my order?
A: After you select your country, click on the black button that says “Add Shipping.” From there, you can choose either Standard, Priority, or Express shipping. Then, you can select your state and proceed to checkout.
I didn't receive an Order or Shipping Notification
A: An Order Confirmation email is sent as soon as you place your order. A Shipping Notification email is sent with the USPS Tracking Number when the order is shipped, usually 3 to 5 days later. Double check your Spam and Promotions folder, and that you have us added to your “safe senders list.” Some email services routinely send emails from companies to spam folders, and sometimes even delete the emails. Please check with your email provider.
Q: How do I track my order?
A: Fuse Lenses ships all orders through the United States Postal Service. You should receive an email containing your tracking number 3-5 days after placing your order. You can enter that number on the USPS website. Keep in mind, once the package leaves our lab, the shipment is out of our control. However, your satisfaction is still our priority and we will work with you to solve any problems. Note: If you think you did not receive an email with this information, please double-check your Spam & Promotion folders.
