About Fitz

What is Fitz’s Mission?
Everyone deserves to have their own style. But we believe it doesn’t have to be at the expense of our planet. That’s why we only print glasses once we receive an order. No back stock. No contribution to the enormous amount of fashion waste. Just really great glasses, exactly when you need them, with a significantly reduced carbon

What is Fitz?
Fitz is a made-to-measure custom eyeglasses company. Using our easy-to-use app to take precise measurements of your face, we 3D print custom eyeglasses in a wide range of styles and colors, and use a
variety of lenses. We also employ an Augmented-Reality virtual try-on that
allows you to choose the style and color that best suits your unique
personality, all without having to set food in a store. In addition to
prescription lenses, we offer non-prescription sunglasses and blue-light glasses.

3D Printing & The Glasses

What is 3D printing?
3D printing or additive manufacturing, is a process of building three dimensional objects from a digital file. In 3D printing, the object is created by laying down successive layers of material until the object is fully formed. This technique is used extensively in medical devices (like custom implants), aerospace (yes, rockets), and now glasses. Additive manufacturing allows us to create a new, fully custom pair of frames from the ground up for each and every one of
our customers. And
them to customize the inner temple with their name, favorite animal, or phone number.

Where are Fitz Frames made?
We are proud that all
Fitz glasses are both designed in the USA and manufactured at our facility in Youngstown, Ohio.

Why is there a warning sticker in my box?
Prop 65 is a law which
requires that all Californian companies who have polycarbonate in their product include this warning.
We are a California based company and adhere to the FDA requirement and Proposition 65 law which requires that all medical devices include a notification if there
is a possibility of trace amounts of BPA. Our lenses are made of polycarbonate as required for children’s glasses.

Detachable Temples

What’s up with the detachable temples?
Each pair of Fitz glasses is manufactured to fit the exact dimensions of your face; therefore each pair of glasses feature custom detachable temples. Everyone’s face is different, and sometimes even two sides of your face can differ by a few mm. For further information regarding the temples please reference our website.

How do I detach the temples?
Please reference our hinge page for instructions on how to detach the temples.

Lose a temple?
We’re happy to send you a replacement pair for a small fee. Just email

Are the new quarter-twist temples compatible with the original snap-fit frames?
Unfortunately no, but we’re happy to provide existing customers with a discount code if you’d like to upgrade.
