  • Do you offer warranties or repairs?
    Yes! All of our inserts come with a free 1-year remounting warranty. Our performance insert is one of the most durable rimless inserts available but it is not indestructible. That being said, if your lenses should start to detach or your nose piece begins to break we will remount your lenses to a new nose piece at no charge except shipping. If you need to start a warranty, visit our Warranty & Repair page here.
  • How do I order Rx inserts?
    Before you get started you need to have 3 things ready: Your Frame Model (frame purchased separately), Most Recent Prescription, and Pupil Distance (PD). Once you have those 3 things you can get started below. Go to the Main Menu and select “Start Order” then go to “Rx Insert Orders". Add the SVED Rx Insert to your cart. Go to your Cart Page and select "HAVE A CURRENT PRESCRIPTION?" or "SEND PRESCRIPTION LATER". Click “Proceed to Checkout”. Your form will let us know your frame model, PD and prescription. Once you are back to the cart page, scroll down to "Checkout" and complete your payment.
  • Do I have to mail my frame in?
    Check here.
  • Do I need to mail in my Pit Viper Exciters for prescription lenses?
    Yes. Prescription lenses have different thicknesses and lens curvatures which is why they require more attention to achieve a proper fit.
  • How long does it take to make my insert?
    Orders can take up to 10 business days to complete. You will receive a confirmation email when your order is placed and an email with tracking information when your order ships.
  • Are prescription Pit Viper Exciters lenses Z87 rated?
    No, these lenses do not meet the requirements to constitute as ANSI Z87 Safety Lenses.
  • Does Anti-Reflective Coating do anything on prescription inserts?
    Anti-Reflective Coating allows more light to pass through the lens which reduces eye fatigue and glare on the backside of the lens. Without it, depending on the light conditions, you'd be able to see reflections on the back of your lenses.
  • Are the inserts visible from the front of my sunglasses?
    Typically no, but it does depend on the sunglass lenses as well as the direction of the sun light. For example, gradient tints that are dark at the top and lighter at the bottom allow more light to pass through the lens making the insert more visible. If you don't want your insert to be seen, choose a pair of sunglasses that have dark lenses, polarization and mirror coat helps too. The Pit Vipers below are in direct sunlight with a SVED Rx Insert: It should be noted that our inserts have the best possible chance of not being seen compared to any other insert, due to the fact that our lenses are cut in a rimless fashion to optimal size and shape and securely attached to your nose piece using our long-lasing suspension system.
  • How do I remove the nose piece from my frame and install my new insert?
    Sounds like you need to take a little trip to our Instructions & Care page.
  • Do the prescription lenses touch the sunglass lenses?
    Sometimes. Since our inserts are custom made we cannot say if they will or not. Some sunglasses are more wrapped than others causing them to touch. The lens touching does not effect your vision in any way. We compensate your Rx for wrap and tilt to give you a performance in vision like none other. Below you can see the lenses are not touching in this Pit Viper frame with this specific RX:
  • What happens if I leave my insert in my car?
    Not good! HEAT + INSERT = BAD IDEA Heat could melt your insert nosepiece!
  • Why am I experiencing a fishbowl effect in my prescription insert?
    The main reason for the fishbowl effect is wrong pupil distance (PD). Make sure you have your PD exactly right. Go to an optical shop and have an optician take it if possible. Some people may experience a distortion in their peripheral vision (commonly known as the fish bowl effect) after receiving their insert. This occurrence can be the result of a curved lens which is typically why people with stronger prescriptions may experience it more. Adjustment Period: Adjusting to your new Rx insert can take a few days to a few weeks. Even if you are getting new glasses with the same prescription, different frames and lens styles can alter your vision until you get used to the new eyewear. Speeding Up Your Adaptation Period: As long as you can perform tasks safely, wear your new eyewear for as long as you can each day while keeping yourself busy. Try to refrain swapping to a different pair of glasses, this tends to make it harder for you to adapt. SVED Optical’s Non-Adapt Policy: You have 30-days to test drive your new insert. If for any reason you are not happy, you can send it back and we can troubleshoot the problem or you can get a full refund. Bottom line, don't sweat the bowl. Also, Just send us an email on our site if you are having issues and we’ll be happy to help you troubleshoot any problem.
  • What frame can I use?
    Lots! All we need is a removable nosepiece or frame with interchangeable lenses. If it's a style we haven't seen before it could take a little longer to manufacture. But we will get it done. We see frames like Pit Viper, Oakley, and Heat Wave all the time.
  • What are the benefits of an Rx insert?
    Where do I begin! Prescription inserts are thinner and lighter due to the fact that we can order your lenses much smaller. They are durable, with incredible optical clarity! Our inserts are also virtually unnoticeable because they are rimless and not housed by a plastic eyewire that blocks field of vision. Oh yea! And they're super affordable compared to presciption sunglasses from competitors. Is that enough yet?
  • Will my sunglasses fit like normal with the SVED Rx insert?
    Yes, absolutely! We only make changes to the nosepiece and those changes do not affect the way they fit.
  • Will my eyelashes touch the prescription lenses?
    The lenses fit as close to the sunglass lens as possible to help prevent this from happening. If you have any issues let us know!
  • Do you make Rx inserts for kids?
    Yes, the inserts work great for kids too! Keep in mind, it's very important that we have the correct Pupil Distance (PD).
  • Will the insert lenses scratch sunglasses lens?
    It is possible over time that they may make a mark on the back of the sunglass lens, but it will be outside your field of vision and not noticeable from the front of sunglasses.
  • Do you ship internationally?
    Yes, we do ship internationally vis USPS and the cost varies based on country. All international orders are subject to duties and fees.
  • What is pupil distance (PD)?
    There are two types of pupil distance (PD). There's a distance PD which is what we need and a near PD. Pupil distance is always written in millimeters (mm) and the larger number is always your distance PD. Now, it can be written two ways. Monocular or Binocular. When a PD is taken monocularly you will see a reading of about 25-35mm for each eye. If taken binocularly you will see something like 55-75mm total PD.
  • How do I figure out my PD if I don't have it?
    Three ways to get your P.D. Ask your eye doctor to take the measurement during the exam. Call the last place you bought glasses and ask for it. Ask your local optical professional to take the measurement.
