How Long Does It Take To Fill A Prescription
gles How long does it take to complete the recipe?
It really depends on where you are going and what you get with the lens. There is only one lab in our lab, but they rarely do anything else like smoke, glare protection, scratch resistance, etc. My experience is usually 57 days (I wear sunglasses for more than 20 years).
Some glass stores make springs on site and can be made in an hour or so.
Other stores or doctors do not have the ability to cut the lens to fit your frame or do not have many different prescriptions. They usually use sales delays to do this, and turnover times can be a few days a week at most.
Remember that even a store that does everything on site can't have more extensive recipes. But maybe they can do it the next day.
