How to Place Your Order

FRAMES

We have the largest selection of kids’ frames on the planet. We carry the top brands like MiraFlex, Nano Vista, and more.

FIT

Some frames will fit your kiddo better than others. Take the easy path and use our quick Fit Wizard to get recommended frames.

LENSES

If you want prescription lenses, you’ll be asked to choose from lens options including materials, coatings, and treatments.

RX

To make prescription lenses, we need a current (within the past 12 months) prescription from an optometrist or ophthalmologist.

PUPILLARY DISTANCE

PD tells us the optical center of a lens; see step-by-step how to measure PD with a downloadable ruler. We need the PD to process your order.

PAYMENTS

We’ll provide a receipt with the codes you need to file an insurance claim. If you don’t have insurance, we offer a buy now, pay later program.

What to Expect After Your Order

Why Parents Love Optiwow

Optiwow delivers more than any other online optical store for children. If you want top brands, a hand-curated fit, and precision lenses, Optiwow is the only choice for all three.

FRAME SELECTION

We carry every possible frame, including swim goggles, protective eyewear for sports, and dive masks. We also offer many different colors and materials, including plastic, flexible plastic, metal, flexible metal, titanium, hypoallergenic, rubber, wood, and earth-friendly materials.

FRAME FIT

Kids simply won’t wear frames that are uncomfortable. And an inaccurate fit can harm a kiddo’s developing eyes because the optical path does not connect perfectly to the brain. We offer 3 ways to get a good fit: use our Frame Fit Wizard, download our frame size chart, or get a personal recommendation.

PRESCRIPTION LENSES

We can fill any prescription for any frame. And we know from experience what frames work best with certain lens thicknesses. Strong prescriptions (those above a (+) or (-) 3.00) will likely require thick lenses unless you upgrade to thinner and lighter polycarbonate aspheric lenses.
