Need glasses in a hurry?

Broken glasses? Left them on the bus? Dog eat them?

If you need prescription glasses in a hurry, order online or contact one of our workshops. We regularly help customers who can't see the way forward.

Need our glasses, now! Don’t want to take out a loan to get them?

We know how you feel. We’ve been there ourselves. In fact, the frustration of lost and broken glasses and the cost and hassle of replacing them inspired us to start Dresden in the first place.

We can help.

Existing customers

Stock lenses(Sphere ±4; Cylinder up to -2)

  • You can order online and we’ll ship within 24 hours.
  • Order online and contact us to tell us you are desperate. We’ll do it straight away.
  • If you are near a Dresden workshop phone ahead and we’ll try to have them ready when you show up.

More unusual prescriptions

  • If you have a higher prescription or multifocal lenses, it takes longer. We’ll phone our labs and ask them to rush the order through.
  • While you’re waiting we can help you get by with a pair of Dresden single-vision prescription glasses. For only 49 this can be a lifesaver.

(Please note: for our Canadian customers, you need to phone the workshop. Ontario law doesn’t let us ship you glasses so we post from Australia.)

  • You can order online and then contact us to tell us you are desperate. We’ll do it straight away.

Don't have your prescription?

We've got that sorted, too

  • If you are a Dresden customer we have it on file. Login or create an account with the email address we have on file and it will appear when you order.
  • Contact your current optometrist (or we’ll do it for you). Also ask them for your PD (distance between your pupils) if ordering online.
  • Make an appointment with one of our optometrists
  • If you have one of your lenses, we can read the script from that.

We want you to get back to whatever it was you were doing, as soon as possible. No up-sells, no rust proofing. Just super affordable transparent pricing, fast turn-around and high quality glasses, made while you wait.
