My left and right eyes require different strengths.  Can you accommodate me? 

YES!  We can accommodate this type of request for a fee of $15.00.  Due to the customization required, we ask that you call our Peeps to place this order by phone at 800-348-2508.  Here’s how it works:

  •  Choose your frame (metal and rimless frames cannot be altered, unfortunately)
  •  Purchase one in each desired strength (our readers are fully assembled, so we do have to             charge you for two complete pair).
  •  Our expert warehouse team will disassemble the two pair and create a custom frame, created to your desired strength specifications.
  • You will receive the extra frame and screws to be used if needed.


          For example:

  • You wear +1.25 in your L eye and +2.50 in your R. 
  • You choose item #814 Clark in golden tortoise. 
  • You then purchase two frames - one +1.25 and one +2.50 ($22 each)
  • With the customization fee of $15, your total will be $59.00 (orders over $42 quality for free shipping!)

What is the difference between Peepers and drugstore readers?

Peepers offers a variety of fun and funky styles that you’ll never see in a drug store. We offer flexible hinges to keep frames comfortably in place. All of our readers offer Aspheric lenses, providing clearer vision and offering a wider, distortion field of view. We also have a Signature line called Peepsakes that features handmade materials and optical quality frames. Drugstore readers cannot compare with our selection and quality product.

What strengths do Peepers come in?

 The majority of our styles come in 1.25 through 3.00.  We carry strengths down to 1.00 and all the way up to 4.00 in select styles.  Simply type in the strength you would like in our search area OR narrow your results while shopping by clicking on the strength desired. 

How do I know what strength to wear?

The strength should be displayed on the inside of one of the side arms of your current pair. If you ordered from us previously we should have a copy of the strengths you ordered. If you are buying reading glasses for the first time, please visit our Vision Chart section.
