Frequently Asked Questions

I own a pair of Julbos. Can I purchase a set of Julbo RX Lab Prescription lenses for them?

All Julbo Rx lenses must be fitted into a new frame at our Lab in Jura, France. A big part of the process is ensuring a prescise fit of the lens into the frame. However, there is no cost associated with the new frame!

Will I need to adapt to my new Julbo Rx glasses?

In some cases it takes time for your eyes to adapt and adjust to new lenses, especially if you are utilizing a new prescription.

What is monocular pupillary distance (MPD)?
Monocular pupillary distance measures from the midline of your face, out to each pupil. This is a per-eye measurement, so there will be a right and a left eye value. Please note, this is different than the pupillary distance (PD), which measures from pupil to pupil. MPD is not necessarily the PD cut in half. The MPD helps account for asymmetries.

The prescription on my enclosed Rx card does not match my Rx

That is expected! The actual prescription built into your lenses will vary slightly based on factors such as distance from eye and curvature of the lens. Your Rx card will reflect your written prescription, and the actual prescription built into the lenses. 

How will I know what my frame/lens selection will look like?

The Julbo Rx-Team works with you before submitting anything to the lab. You will receive an email from our Rx team with a final quote of your order before it is sent to the RX Lab. 

This quote will have details of your order, as well as a reference of your color selections for you to review. Once approved, Julbo sends the order our state of the art Rx Lab.
