How It Works

How It Works

Welcome to trading! Trading is a new way of shopping that allows you to retain as much value as possible for your frames.
Do you have a pair of glasses or sunglasses?
Do you want a new style or design?
Then trade in your frames for other frames on Vision Interchange.
It costs just $39.
Follow our easy 1, 2, 3 steps to get started.

Step 1: What Frames Are You Trading?

To trade your frames, we will need some information about the frames you are trading in.
On each product page, there will be questions about your frames. Simply fill out the form to provide information about the frames that you are sending in to trade.
When you make an order, we will send you a prepaid package to mail in your frames. Upon receiving your frames, we verify that your information is correct. Then, we mail your selected frames.

Step 2: Lens Options

When you trade in your frames, you will receive frames only. Traded frames on Vision Interchange do not come with prescription lenses.
For your convenience, we offer lens options through our locally partnered optical centers. Our partnered optical centers will fill your prescription and non-prescription lens needs.
Lenses are offered at a high discount and are also covered through vision insurance. Contact information for our optical partners is provided with every purchase.

Step 3: Select Your New Frames

Select your new frames from the categories below. Frames are valued and based on LEVELS. Scroll through each level to find the one that your frames fall under. If you don't know the brand, then follow the pricing range for how much your frames cost originally.
