Lens Reglazing by Archibald

Give your favourite pair of glasses (or sunglasses) a new lease on life with our premium lens replacement service.

When we started Archibald, we realized that the world of lenses was muddled. Opticians had exceptionally high mark-ups on both cheap and high-grade offerings, while online retailers provided low-grade lenses expertly veiled behind a ‘free prescription’ gimmick.

At Archibald, we knew there was little point in offering frames meticulously crafted by our team of Japanese master craftsmen if the lenses we paired them were simply sub-par.

So, as our young collection continued to grow, we sought to develop our lenses by working closely with one of Japan's leading lens manufacturers to curate our own line of premium optics and sunglasses lenses.

Thanks to the many of you who have come to realize the difference in our lenses, we decided to offer a re-glazing service--so you can fit your frames with an updated pair and say goodbye to ridiculous mark-ups on poor-quality lenses. And, as our way of apologizing for not having our act together quick enough, we decided to extend this service to any non-Archibald frames as well.

What type of frames do you own?

Select the lens colour you would like.


Select your Prescription Type

Choose "Near" if you need your glasses for close range use, such as reading a book, or "Distance" if you need the pair to see things in the distance, such as driving. Progressive (Varifocal) lenses allow both the ''Distance'' and ''Near'' prescription in one (i.e. using the pair for both driving and looking at a map), where the strength gradually changes from the top of the lens to the bottom. These come with an extra charge of £126. Reading glasses are also for close range use, however these work more like magnifying glasses - more for people who do not require astigmatism correction.


Please insert your prescription details.

Sph Cyl Axis Add Pd
Right (OD)
Left (OS)
Note: In general an extra charge of £35 will be charged for CYL values higher than +2.00 and below -2.00 and for SPH values higher than +6.00 and below -6.00. For any other high prescription circumstances, we will get in touch via email prior to proceeding.
Reading prescription


Select the type of lenses you would like.

All our lenses come complete with double anti-scratch, anti-reflective and super water repellent coatings. The index refers to the thickness of the lens. The higher the index, the thinner and lighter the lens. 1.67 Index Lenses represent our standard offering and generally recommended for most cases. Blue filter lenses protect against harmful blue light emitted from electronic devices such as smartphones and computers. The blue filter coating replaces the front anti-reflective coating and this lens type is only available in 1.60 and 1.70 indexes.
We recommend our polarised sunglasses lenses, which provide up to 4x the polarisation of conventional polarised lenses. 1.67 Index Ultra Thin Lenses are our standard offering for sunglasses and is our recommendation for most cases, from readers to standard and high prescriptions. 1.74 Index Hyper Thin Lenses are recommended in case of very high prescriptions (SPH +/- 8.00 and above). Please note that the tint for the 1.74 option will be lighter compared to our standard tint due to the different material composition. For progressive (or varifocal) prescriptions, an extra charge of £126 will be applied during the "prescription" step of the checkout process. Additional options are also available during checkout.


You're almost ready

What's next?

Please Note

As the reglazing service consists of many variables, the price to reglaze may vary following an order. Rest assured; should there be any change in price, we will reach out to confirm the changes before proceeding.
