Common questions

How long does it take to get eyewear at HEYWEAR?

You can get your eyewear in less than 30 minutes at HEYWEAR Studio in NoHo. Our Brooklyn Studio makes same day Rx eyewear that you can pickup after 4:30pm. If you'd rather shop online, we make orders as they come in and typically ship out same day.

What's included in the exam and how much does it cost?

Exams are included with every eyewear purchase at HEYWEAR. You can also have an exam without purchasing eyewear for a flat $50 with no insurance required.

During your comprehensive eye screening a doctor will determine your eyewear prescription and evaluate your eye health through advanced imaging of the anterior and posterior of your eyes. Tests also will be performed on your pupils, muscles, visual field, as well as pressure checks for glaucoma screening. While HEYWEAR does not perform dilation, It is still recommended that if you have not your eyes dilated in over 3 years or are at higher risk that you schedule a dilated eye exam with your regular Optometry office.

Post exam you'll receive your updated Rx and exam summary via secure email.

Do I need to book an exam or can I walk in?

We encourage booking an appointment at our Brooklyn or Manhattan Studio if you plan on having an exam. Otherwise, you can walk in anytime during Studio hours to try on styles in our showrooms or have eyewear made on the spot using an existing prescription.

Do you carry every Rx?

The top of our prescription range is -12 and +6. Our astigmatism limitation is -4.00. We offer single vision and sun lenses that are cut for your prescription on the spot. We generally stock lenses to accommodate these prescriptions in both sun and clear lenses.

In the rare case we're out of stock, we'll order your Rx and send you an e-mail when they're back in the Studio.
