    Good lenses - bad frame. Can I buy a new frame for my old lenses?


    I have a pair of glasses that is perhaps 20 years old.

    The lenses are made of glass (not plastic). The lenses are in great shape.

    Unfortunately, the frame is in bad shape.

    I would like to buy a new frame for these lenses. I want to remove these lenses from the old frame and insert the lenses into a new frame. I do not want to get a new eye exam, just to get a new prescription for the same lenses.

    Is there a store (brick-and-mortar or online) that can help me out?

    Thank you.

    As per the forum rules:

    All the professional Opticians on this site would love to help you solve your problems or answer your questions about your eye care and eye wear need! But vision and visual solutions can have thousands of correct as well as incorrect answers.
