1. What does my purchase include?

When you order frames from Vint & York, your purchase includes high-quality eyeglass frames, single-vision polycarbonate lenses with UV coating, anti-reflective coating, anti-scratch coating. It also includes free shipping and free returns.
All purchases are covered by a 1-year limited warranty.

2. Do you offer progressive or bifocal lenses?

At this time, we are happy to offer Premium Progressive Lenses - available with most of our optical frames. You can customize your lenses options during the checkout process.  Vint & York uses HD digital free-form progressive lenses that are custom made for each customer considering their prescription specifics, the frame they chosen and other factors.

3. Do you offer progressive or bifocal lenses?

At this time, we only offer single-vision lenses. However, you can choose to order two frames and purchase one for reading and one for distance. If you’re set on progressive or bifocals, another good option is to purchase frames from Vint & York and have your optician fill your prescription.

4. How do I purchase multiple glasses with different prescriptions?

It’s easy: After you place the frames in your cart - start completing the checkout and you will be prompted to enter the prescription for each of the frames.

5. How long will it take for me to receive my finished prescription eyeglasses?

Most orders leave our facility within 3 to 5 business days, plus the time it takes either FedEx Ground or USPS Priority to deliver your order. (Expedited domestic shipping is available if you need your frames ASAP.)

6. How does your warranty work?

We provide our customers with a 1-year limited warranty from the date of purchase on all frames purchased through our site. This warranty covers normal wear and tear of the frames. Lenses, hinges, and nose pieces are not included under this warranty. If you decide to fill your lens prescription through a third party, this voids our limited warranty. All warranty inquiries should be directed to [email protected]

7. How do Vint & York frames compare to brand-name frames?

The quality of our frames is comparable to the high-priced brand-name frames you see in eyewear boutiques. We handpick the materials for our hipster, retro, and geek glasses for men and women and use only the highest quality celluloid acetate and nickel-free metal. Our designers choose the unique color combinations and textures and are not afraid to apply new materials to the classic timeless styles. All frames feature reinforced temples for comfort and to allow for frame adjustment for custom fit. Our materials are eco- friendly and animal-friendly. We don’t use the real wood or real animal products.

8. Is the PD (Pupillary Distance) measurement necessary for prescriptions?

It is not necessary for reading glasses. However, it is needed for prescription glasses. If you do not know your PD, we can measure it for you during checkout. All you need is a web cam and a standard-size credit card with magnetic strip to keep the image on certain scale. Once the pictures are taken, our opticians will measure your PD using our precise method.

Virtul Try On

A fear of some who have been reluctant to purchase their geek glasses for men and geek glasses for women online has been the problem of not knowing for sure how well a particular pair will match one's face. Some glasses are designed for a particular face shape and size, so knowing your own particular measurements will go a long way.

To find your measurements, look on the inside of your current frames, and you should see a series of numbers. Once you do, shop for glasses with similar measurements as these numbers, and you should be relatively safe in your selection. However, there are other solutions as well to ensure a proper match. At Vint and York, we make finding the right glasses for you easy.

We offer a Virtual Try-On service that enables you to model different pairs of glasses without leaving your desk that is also very easy to use. There are several ways you can add an image to the virtual try on service:

1) You can upload an image using your webcam;

2) You can upload an image from your computer drive;

3) You can import an image from your Facebook account.


From there, the particular frame you choose will be added to your image, so you have an idea of how they might look on you. If you don't have an image at this time, the Virtual Try-On service includes a number of model images to see how the glasses look on a specific face shape and size. If you're a proponent of trying something on before you buy it, the Virtual Try-On service will help ensure you find the perfect pair for you.
