Questions About My Glasses
How long will it take for me to receive my glasses?
Associates should give customers placing in-store orders an exact day of when their glasses should arrive back at the store. Because we use a centralized lab, eyeglasses are typically ready for pick-up in 7-10 business days. If you would like to know the status of your order, please contact your local store.
What is your return policy for eyeglasses?
We offer a 30-day return policy on eyeglasses when accompanied by a receipt.
Does America's Best offer protection plans in case my frames break?
Customers can purchase our Product Protection Plan, which protects your eyeglass frames and lenses for one year for a low additional cost. If your frames break or your lenses become excessively scratched during the year, bring them to your local America's Best store so we can replace them (only 1 replacement allowed). This plan does not cover lost frames or lenses.
Will I find a wide selection of eyeglass frames and lenses at your store?
Most America's Best locations have hundreds of eyeglass frames in-store. Other optical chains might only offer a few dozen pairs as part of a special like ours, but America's Best offers almost 200 frames as part of our 2 pair for $69.95 deal (frames tagged at $59.95 with single vision uncoated plastic lenses). America's Best also offers designer brands – check out our selection!
We carry premium lens options at an additional cost like Transitions® Signature™, polarized sunglasses, impact-resistant polycarbonate material, Neverglare Advantage® anti-reflective coating. Other options include solid or gradient tints, scratch resistant coating, and a UV protective coating.
Coatings and tinting are available on most eyeglass lenses. If your prescription indicates another lens might be better suited to correct your vision, one of our associates will help you decide what's right for you. No matter what you choose, you'll always pay less at America's Best!
How can you help me save money if my kids are rough on eyeglasses?
Our 2 for $69.95 deal allows parents to always have a back-up pair of glasses for their children, and the KidsGear™ Breakage protection plan covers BOTH pairs of eyeglasses for only $32.
KidsGear™ Breakage protection plan includes additional protection for kids 13 and under with scratch resistant coating and UV protection. ALL kid's eyeglass lenses are upgraded to impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses for greater protection from breakage.
