Please understand that no two pieces of wood are identical. Therefore, no two pairs of Shwood wooden sunglasses will be exactly alike. Product photos on this website should be used solely as a guide to what a product will resemble, not as an exact representation. Minute differences should be expected in each product’s construction, as minor deviations are inherent to Shwood’s handcrafted manufacturing process. Fortunately, Shwood’s one-by-one product construction guarantees individual attention to detail and quality assurance in every pair of eyewear to leave the wood shop.
Shwood is not responsible for any actions taken by the customs or the chosen package delivery service. Shwood has NO control over this. The customer is responsible for any customs charges that may be applied to the shipment. Customs determines these charges and Shwood has no way of knowing what these charges may be.

Nice catch! There is, indeed, a difference between the two. Our Rx “All-Wood” models include our patent-pending “Super-Groove”. This adds extra strength and stability that is necessary for Prescription lenses, as each pair of lenses may be a different size.
Please do not attempt to put prescription lenses in your Shwood Original or Select frames, as they will likely break and we will not be able to offer warranty services on them.
You will need a valid and non-expired prescription or your doctor’s contact information. You will also need to know your pupillary distance (PD) which is not always noted on prescriptions. The PD is the distance between your pupils measured in millimeters. Your doctor should have that information on file. Your local optical shop should also be able to measure your PD for you for a small fee. You can even measure your PD yourself if you like - just follow the instructions found while adding a prescription to your Shwood frames (Look for "How do I measure my PD?").
You have a few different options if you are unsure what your prescription is:
If you are able to locate your prescription, you may take a picture or photocopy of it and send it in along with your order. We can, at that point enter your information into the order form for you.
If you cannot locate your prescription, you can still complete your order and give us the rest of the required information at a later time. This way we can start working on your frame right away.
If you are unable to locate your prescription, you can opt for our “call my doctor” option. We will get in touch with your doctor and retrieve your prescription for you. Please note that this option will take additional time.
We, currently, only offer Single Vision lenses (SV).
Most likely, your doctor has recommended a certain type lens and we encourage you to listen to your doctor! When ordering your Shwood eyeglasses you will, however, have the following lens options:
- SV Polycarbonate
- SV High Index
- SV Sun Polycarbonate (Polarized)
- SV Sun High Index (Polarized)
In addition, you can add Anti-Reflective (AR) Coating to you lens selection. We strongly encourage choosing our anti-reflective coating if your prescription is stronger than +/- 2.00 in at least one eye.
Those are a lot of options! What the difference between them all?
We have two different materials to choose from and each type has their own advantages.
- Polycarbonate is very impact resistant and is your least expensive option.
- High Index is a material that is thinner and lighter than Polycarbonate. This helps avoid the "Coke-bottle lens" effect with stronger prescriptions. We recommend HI lenses if your sphere value exceeds -4.00 or +2.00 or the combined sphere and cylinder value exceeds -4.00 or +2.00.
Depending on model, the limit on prescription strength is as follows:
Sphere: -6.00 to +3.00
Cylinder (Astigmatism): -2.00 to +2.00
Axis: 1 to 180
PD (Pupillary distance): 50-75
The combined sphere and cylinder powers should not be over -6.00
Acetate & Titanium Frames:
Sphere: -8.00 to +4.00
Cylinder (Astigmatism): -2.00 to +2.00
Axis: 1 to 180
PD (Pupillary distance): 50-75
The combined sphere and cylinder powers should not be over -8.00
We do offer all of our Rx frames with reading lenses in the following strengths:
To purchase reading glasses, select "Rx" lenses on an Rx product page. When you click "Add Prescription, you will be presented with the option to select "Reading" lenses.
