Why polycarbonate for Rx?

Polycarbonate lenses are a shatterproof, scratch-resistant material therefore an excellent choice for a sports wearer.

What is AR?

AR stands for anti-reflective coating. It is a coating that is applied to the surface of the lens. AR coating is designed to cut down glare off objects/surfaces and allows more light through to your eyes. AR also repels oil and smudges as well as moisture and water. AR coating is included to mirror options

What is a digital surface verses non-digital surface?

Digital surface is the newest process in prescription lenses manufacturing that optimizes the optical clarity, edge to edge clarity and minimizes distortion. A digital surface is especially important for stronger prescriptions to provide better and more improved optics. Non digital lenses are made by an abrasive grinding process and does not optimize the optical clarity as a digital lens.

What is PD?

PD stands for pupil distance. Visit and ask your current eyecare provider for your PD distance. Tifosi cannot fill a RX prescription order without PD.

Does Tifosi offer Progressive RX?

At this time, Tifosi does not offer Progressive prescription fills, just Single Vision.

How do you order a RX from Tifosi?

Pick your frame and the options that come up as you go through the process, at the end you will be asked to upload your RX from your eyecare professional.  Please ensure the PD is on the prescription before upload.  Upload, pay and your prescription order will be processed.
