If you have had an eye test:

If you have already had an eye test, then it may be that you already have a prescription that lists your sphere (SF or SPH), pupillary distance (PD) and possibly the presence of astigmatism (C or CYL) and an axis (A, As, AXI, AXS or AXIS). You will need this prescription to order glasses. If you want to order reading or varifocal glasses then you will also need the reading addition (ADD).

If you do not know your prescription, it can be measured by an optician or optometrist by means of an eye test. Do not forget to take a copy of your prescription home with you after your test.

We offer free appointment based eye-tests in all of our stores. You can plan in an appointment here.
The following information must be on your prescription:

  • The sphere (S, SF or SPH) and/or cylinder value of each eye (C or CYL)
  • If there is a cylinder value, there must also be an axis value (A, As, AXI, AXS or AXIS). Please note that not everyone has a cylinder, so this information might not be on your prescription. If not, please fill in the cylinder and axis as 0.
  • The pupillary distance (PD) of each eye


When you want to order a pair of varifocal or reading lenses, we also need your reading addition (ADD).

It is also possible to place your order and send us your prescription details at a later time. We will reserve the frames for you and start with your new pair as soon as we have all your details complete.
There a few different ways for you to submit your prescription during the order process:

  • You can fill in the prescription yourself
  • You can upload a picture of your prescription
  • You can choose the option to send us your prescription later. You can send us your prescription to hello@aceandtate.com once you’ve obtained it.


If you’re having trouble filling in your prescription, please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.
We’re afraid not – contact lens prescriptions are not the same as spectacles prescriptions. As contact lenses sit on your eyes, and lenses of glasses sit before your eyes, they vary in strength. In order to make sure that you will receive a pair of frames that you can use comfortably, it is necessary to use a prescription that is specifically measured for glasses.
Yes – as glasses wearers ourselves, we pride ourselves on offering a serious range for all prescriptions, and not just for the amateur appreciator of eyewear. We make prescription lenses with a sphere (SPH) up to -10.00 or +10.00 and a cylinder up to -4.00 or +4.00.

For prescriptions stronger than 3.25, we use high-index lenses. This lens is slimmer, and won’t warp the size of your eyes as the standard lens does at this prescription. We don't charge any additional costs for this option and we will use the same lenses for both eyes.

If you have any additional questions about your prescription or our lenses, please feel free to contact us.
Yes! We make prescription lenses with a maximum cylinder between -4.00 and +4.00. In order for us to be able to make your lenses we just need the values of your cylinder (C or Cyl) and the axis (A, AXI, AXS). We charge no additional costs for a cylinder, so you will never pay more than the price that is stated on our website.
Unfortunately, we are currently unable to provide lenses for prescriptions with a prism correction. The measurement is prone to error, and if not done correctly, it can increase the affliction. Prism correction makes an assessment involving binocular research, which is not specified in a standard eye measurement.

However, it is possible and relatively simple to buy Ace & Tate frames without lenses, and have lenses with prism correction inserted by your optician. We are able to offer a 10% discount on this option. Select ‘single vision lenses’ and then ‘No lenses’ at checkout. The discount will then automatically be applied to your order.
Yes, we definitely offer varifocal glasses. Varifocal (sun)lenses allow you to see clearly at every distance without you having to carry around and swap your frames for different uses.

Varifocal lenses provide a smooth transition from a prescription for distance (at the top of the lens) to a reading prescription (at the bottom of the lens). When looking through the lens, you can see long distances through the top, short distances through the bottom and use the middle part of the lens for everything in-between.

A pair of varifocal glasses including prescription lenses costs €249. The price for our varifocal sunglasses is €299. All of our lenses are produced with an anti-reflective coating, UV protection coating, anti-scratch coating and a dirt resistant coating.

Furthermore, we can ensure you that we use the thinnest glass possible based on your prescription for no additional costs.
All of our frames are available with special computer lenses. This type of lenses is perfect for those who want to use their glasses to both read and work behind their computer for longer periods. You will be able to clearly see your screen through the top part of the lens, while the bottom half of the lens will make sure you can read everything clearly. The width of the reading part is bigger than varifocal lenses, so this type of glasses is much more suited for long-term work behind a computer.

At the moment you can only order computer glasses in one of our stores. If you are unsure about your prescription you can always plan in a free eye test on our website so our optician can give advice on the perfect prescription for you.

AA pair of computer glasses including prescription lenses costs €249. The lenses are produced with an anti-reflective coating, UV protection coating, anti-scratch coating and a water- and dirt resistant coating.
