  • Are your wholesale optical lenses warrantied?
    Yes, indeed! Our commitment to our clients includes an array of warranties based on your price guide: Factory Scratch Resistance Warranty: Rest assured, all our factory scratch coatings are covered against scratches for a comprehensive 1-year period from the original manufacturing date. This encompasses protection against scratching and anti-reflective coating failures. Please note, exceptions include damages resulting from dog bites, intentional or excessive abuse, as well as any manufacturing or adjustment-related damage. Progressive Non-adapt Warranty: For our progressive lenses, we offer a 90-day patient non-adaptation guarantee. Within 90 days from the date of manufacture, should any issues arise, simply return the lenses to us. We'll craft new lenses once, free of charge. Dr. Rx Change: Any doctor-prescribed change made within 90 days of the original manufacturing date of the job will be fully honored, with only a nominal $15 processing fee. Steps to Address Any Issue: 1. Initiate a remake order through SpecCheck/RxWizard. 2. Clearly outline the warranty requirement and attach the original invoice in the service description. 3. Return the lenses to us to facilitate improvements in our processes.
  • Can AccuLab email me a shipping label?
    We furnish each of our clients with a unique login ID, granting them exclusive access to their personalized shipping labels accessible via the UPS portal. Furthermore, we ensure the inclusion of a return shipping label specifically for frames. Due to this convenient accessibility, we refrain from issuing shipping labels via email unless there is an issue with UPS.
  • I recently got my job back, but it seems like there might be an issue with the lenses. Any advice on what steps I should take?
    While unexpected, occasional occurrences may arise. Rest assured, sending back the lenses ensures our assistance in examining them for you! Here's how to proceed with having a lens remade: 1. Initiate a remake order via SpecCheck or RxWizard. 2. Be specific in the 'Service Description' about the lens issue. 3. Ensure that "REMAKE" is explicitly stated in the service description. 4. Return the lenses to enhance our operational efficiency.

  • Ordering Portal isn't allowing me to submit an order. Can I send a hard copy to AccuLab for manual entry?
    We strongly discourage choosing this option as there are charges for manual entries, and we aim to spare you from incurring them! Should you encounter any difficulties while submitting a job through SpecCheck, RxWizard, or VisionWeb, we recommend reaching out to us directly at 800-688-3904 or Our team is more than willing to assist you!
  • What's the speed at which AccuLab processes incoming jobs after they've been transmitted?
    We promptly receive jobs within 10 minutes of clients sending them our way. If a client has any questions regarding a recently submitted job before the 10-minute mark, we'll do our best to provide initial assistance. Our comprehensive support will be available after the job has been fully transmitted.
  • Does DVI RxWizard work with VisionWeb?
    While DVI RxWizard operates independently from VisionWeb, it seamlessly collaborates with VisionWeb to facilitate order transmission to our lab. However, remakes will require a different submission process compared to having RxWizard downloaded and accessible for use. This might involve initiating a new order and explicitly marking it as a 'REMAKE.'
  • My remake or second job won't transmit or shows an error in RxWizard. What do I do?
    Dependent on the nature of the error, DVI has implemented a fail-safe mechanism to prevent duplicate orders. It might flag a second job or remake as a duplicate if placed within a specific timeframe after the completion and shipment of the initial order. One effective workaround involves adding a numerical value next to the patient's name. Occasionally, you might need to adjust the text layout by removing a letter to accommodate the addition of a number beside the patient's name (e.g., "JOHN SMITH2"). Upon making this adjustment, attempt transmitting the order again. This method assists DVI in recognizing the revised entry as a distinct, non-duplicate order, enabling a successful transmission to us. Should this approach not yield results, carefully ensure that all sections, excluding the necessary ones, are entirely clear. RxWizard meticulously identifies even minor discrepancies such as an extra space or a stray period, considering them as errors and causing transmission to halt.
