Disclaimer:
UI Optical is not responsible for the fabrication, quality or fit of eyewear purchased through an online vendor. We will provide measurements to help aid in the ordering of online eyewear; verify that the prescription was fabricated correctly; and make any needed adjustments to the frame after purchasing to achieve the best fit possible for the frame acquired. UI Optical assumes no responsibility for any damage that might occur to a frame purchased elsewhere during the adjustment of the frame. All eyewear purchased online is done so at the purchaser’s own risk.
