Pilla Prescription Costs

Recommended Posts

Hi there

Does anybody have a ball park cost on obtaining prescription lenses for the Outlaw inserts? 

Cheers

Here in 'merica, the land of hyper-expensive, the RX insert (for Outlaws, without lenses) is $180 plus the cost of lenses (for which Pilla recommends Trivex lenses with an anti-glare treatment).  If you paid full suggested Pilla retail for just the single vision prescription lenses and insert, that would be $390, without the price of the " color-enhancing mask plus temples."  I get my local optometrist to fill the lens prescription, which is less, but I don't recall off the top of my head how "much" less than Pilla's suggested prices.

Most online opticians will fit lenses in inserts. Not expensive.

Sorry for the tardy reply but tip-top is correct. My local optician made and then fitted them for me while I waited for around £50

All depends on your prescription and what lenses you want to fit.

My single vision ultra-thin lightweight lenses cost around £160 but they were made and fitted for me in the Zeiss factory.

Unfortunately I have a rather strong prescription in my right eye and cheaper lenses tend to give me peripheral distortion.
