A valid prescription needs to include the following information:

 1) Prescriber's Information (Name, Address, Phone #)

 2) Valid Expiration Date (within 2 years or less from date of exam)

 3) Pupillary Distance (PD) measurement


*International prescriptions must be within 2 years from date of exam to be considered Valid.

[ What is a pupillary distance and how can I measure it if its not provied with my prescription? ]


Questions? Please contact us!

Your PD (pupillary distance) is the distance between your two pupils, expressed in millimeters. Sometimes the doctor will write two values (for each eye) or one value (for both eyes).

We need this measurement because it helps us position your lens prescription's focus in the right place for your frames.

 Below is an example image of a PD measurement:


If your doctor did not include a PD measurement in your prescription, please feel free to use our online PD measurement tool to measure your PD found in our prescription page.

If you are not comfortable with using our guide, you can reach out to your doctor to take your measurement.

You can also head to the nearest JINS, where our trained opticians will gladly take a measurement for you.

Progressive glasses, also called as multi-focal glasses, are usually for people who have presbyopia. The lenses have a smooth transition, with a gradual change in power from distance through reading. If you need progressives, your doctor should provide you a progressive prescription; otherwise, you don't need progressives.

What does a progressive prescription look like? Please refer to our Prescriptions page.

We display the Prop 65 warning because of the Bisphenol-A (BpA) found in polycarbonate lenses and some of our frame materials.

California Proposition 65, also known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, was created to protect California’s drinking water from contamination. California publishes a list of chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm, which is updated once a year. Recently, a chemical known as bisphenol A, BpA, was added to this list. BpA as many of you know, is found almost everywhere – food containers, compact discs and DVDs, bicycle helmets and electronic equipment. With only trace amounts of BpA detected in a polycarbonate lens and plastic eye wear frame, how much exposure are you really getting? The studies have shown that most exposure to BpA is largely ingested and that any exposure through skin contact is negligible.

For details on our various lens options, such as JINS Screen Blue Light or Sunglasses Lenses, please visit our Lens Guide!

The following is a chart listing the type of high-index lenses you will receive with your glasses based on your spherical power. We have determined these lens recommendations by optimizing the balance between visual acuity and lens thickness for your convenience.

(+) Sphere Prescription:

±0 --> +4.00 = 1.60 HIGH-INDEX PLASTIC

+4.00 --> +8.00 = 1.67 HIGH-INDEX PLASTIC

(-) Sphere Prescription:

±0 --> -5.00 = 1.60 HIGH-INDEX PLASTIC

-5.00 --> higher = 1.67 HIGH-INDEX PLASTIC

-8.00 --> -12.00 = 1.74 HIGH-INDEX PLASTIC

*1.74 index is available only for Single Vision clear lenses, and it is not always guaranteed to offer to all prescriptions with sphere power -8.00 and  high cylinder power of -2.00. Also, depending on your selection of lens option, the high index availability is limited. 


The following outlines lens characteristics and additional lens options:

1.60 High-index Plastic Lens Characteristics

  • Designed to be durable
  • Better visual acuity

1.67 High-index Plastic Lens Characteristics

  • Designed for strong prescription
  • Thinner, Lighter

We currently have three different fitment options for our frames: Standard Fit, Low Bridge Fit, and Adjustable Fit.  

Standard Fit is the standard found across a majority of retailers and fits individuals with higher or more prominent nose bridges. 

Low Bridge Fit (also known as Asian Fit or Global Fit) frames sit better on lower nose bridges via larger nose pads to prevent the frames from sitting too low or slipping down the face.

Adjustable Fit is designed with straight temple arms and a fixed nose bridge, these glasses fit many—but not all—wearers. People with higher nose bridges can usually wear standard-fit glasses without any problems.
