Is it possible to get sunglasses written up as prescription

Is it possible to get sunglasses written up as prescription? if i plan to put prescription lenses in them?

Do any stores do this? To claim from benefits?

re-read what the OP said and you will know what he wants to do.

The OP wants to buy a pair of sunglasses, and have the optometrist write it up on the receipt as purchasing a pair of prescription glasses. Therefore he can claim from his company benefits.

Frauding his company = no no

You either need a hookup like a family or friend's eyewear store, or a very shady store that would do it for anyone...

Ohhh. Yeah. Okay. But like, if it were corrective lenses, it wouldn't be fraud!

^ i dont think you understand... have you worked for a company that pays for your prescription glasses or contact lens through benefits?

Companies allow you a new pair of precription glasses or prescription sunglasses once a year or 3 years or whatever...different policy for different companies.

However they dont allow you to buy non-prescription sunglasses , if you want them to pay for it.

Therefore, the OP is trying to find a optical store to buy non-prescription sunglasses but written as prescription glasses on the receipt so he can claim benefits so he doesnt have to pay for them. Which is frauding the comany.

I hope you understand it now

No, I do understand. You're not understanding what I'm saying. And yes, I understand how benefits work.

His original question did not specifically state whether or not the sunglasses he wanted to buy were with corrective lenses or not, I assumed they were prescription lenses.

Plus, he edited his original post, so yeah. His prescription sunglasses would be covered up to whatever benefits he has.

since you edited your post, it looks even more stupid.

If you get prescription sunglasses, of course the receipt will be written up as prescription sunglasses.
What else will they put on the receipt??

With most benefit plans, you have to send a copy of the receipt from the store that shows it as prescription eyewear, and send a copy of your prescription from the eye doctor. So to make this plan work, you need both a shady eyewear store and a shady eye doctor.

not even a shady eyewear store really... most places will do it as long as its not a big name store.

my coworker told me about his buddies place that does it, some place on denman. i went down and didnt see anything i liked. as i left and was walking back to my car, i dropped by another store i saw and asked the guy if he'd do it - he did. i got a quick eye exam and 'prescription' eyewear in about 15 mins, and saved $300.

okay this thread looks like it's about ripping a benefits program off so this is being shut down. Doing shit like this, no wonder they jack our rates up.
