Eyewear

Sizing largely depends on your individual facial features and head size, as well as your personal style. The majority of MOSCOT wearers will fall into our “Average” size range. For more information about sizing read about our Style & Fit.

We have 16 MOSCOT Shops, and hundreds of Authorized MOSCOT Stockists worldwide.  Find the closest one to you here. Be sure to look out for the MOSCOT Authorized Stockist Badge!

MOSCOT’s sunglass lenses provide optimal protection against UV radiation (harmful rays from the sun).

Our acetate frames are custom crafted resulting in unique patterns distinctive to each product. In certain acetate colorways, the frame you receive may not look identical to the frame pictured online because of the unique nature of the custom crafted acetate used in each frame.

Available assortments may vary on MOSCOT.COM, in MOSCOT Shops and in Authorized MOSCOT Stockists. If you have a question regarding a frame you are unable to find on MOSCOT.COM please e-mail support@moscot.com or call us at 1.866.667.2687.

If the frame you’re looking for is out of stock, please sign up for out-of-stock notifications on the product page. After you select the size you would like, the out-of-stock field will appear. Please enter your email address and we’ll notify you when the frame is back in stock.

If you have a nickel allergy we recommend choosing an acetate frame from our Originals Collection. Shop them here.

Designed and prototyped in New York City by 5th Generation family member, Zack Moscot, all MOSCOT Eyewear is handmade, using the highest quality materials, real hardware, and hinges that are riveted through the temple and frame fronts to ensure the sturdiest construction possible. On average, a MOSCOT frame requires approximately 130+ steps until completion and is expertly crafted in our factory in China that has been a part of the family for nearly 50 years! Our prescription lenses are fabricated in our NYC Laboratory before we dispense them to you.

Yes! We will happily fabricate lenses for frames you already own in any of our MOSCOT New York City shops.  Of course we work very carefully, but this is done at your own risk and service fees may apply.

Care & Use

For a quick clean, blow loose particles off your frames first, and then clean with the MOSCOT Chamois provided with your glasses. We conveniently sell these as a three-pack for your office, home and everywhere in-between!

For a deep clean, add a drop of liquid dish soap (moisturizer-free) to a bowl of water big enough to submerge your frames. Soak for a few minutes, then wipe clean with a premium paper towel or a soft cloth.

On the rare occasion when you aren’t actually wearing your MOSCOT Eyewear, please store in its protective case to avoid damage or exposure to direct sunlight. Lenses are scratch resistant, but not scratch proof, so treat your frame gingerly. Follow this mantra: If not on your face, keep in the case!

Eyecare

A valid prescription is signed by a licensed eyecare provider and is not expired. Depending on local and state laws, your prescription may be considered valid between 1-2 years from the date of examination.

MOSCOT is an Out-of-Network provider for all insurances. As an Out-of-Network provider, we extend 15% off both our professional examination services as well as our retail pricing for a complete pair of prescription eyeglasses. If you are a new MOSCOT patient, we offer a $50 credit towards the examination service, and 15% off our retail pricing for a complete pair of prescription eyeglasses. This offer applies only in our US Shops. To take advantage of this offer, just show us proof of your active insurance membership! You can also submit your receipts to your insurance for any Out-Of-Network benefit reimbursements you may be due.

Unfortunately, MOSCOT.COM does not accept any insurance benefits on orders.

Our doctors of Optometry will work closely with you to ensure you have a full understanding of your vision conditions and needs. MOSCOT Eyecare provides a full range of comprehensive eye care services including: Annual Comprehensive Eye Examinations; Dilated Fundus Exams (DFE); First Time and Existing Contact Lens Patient Examinations; Dry Eye Examinations; Glaucoma Work Up Examinations; Ocular Damage from Diabetes and Hypertension Examinations; Emergency Examinations; and Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) Exams.

Yes, all of our doctors are Therapeutic Licensed Doctors of Optometry in New York State, with privileges to prescribe prescription eye drops.

The length of an eye exam depends on the type of exam, and whether or not your eyes are dilated. Please e-mail support@moscot.com or call us at 1.866.667.2687

Yes, appointments are strongly encouraged. However, we will take walk-ins if the schedule allows, or if you have an emergency.

You may use your FSA (Flexible Spending Account) or HSA (Health Savings Account) cards to make online purchases towards prescription glasses.

To schedule an appointment, you may click here, e-mail support@moscot.com or call us at 1.866.667.2687.

We strongly recommend you return for a follow-up exam because improperly fitting lenses may feel ok to the wearer, but can cause long-term ocular issues and problems. A follow–up exam ensures you have the most comfortable, best fitting, and healthiest lenses available specifically for your eyes. A follow-up exam is mandatory for first time contact lens patients.

In general we recommend a Comprehensive Eye Exam every 12 – 24 months. However, depending on your situation (e.g. family history of eye disease, past history of problems, etc.), and/or if you wear eyeglasses, and/or if you are over the age of 40, we recommend a Comprehensive Eye Exam every 12 months. Contact lenses wearers should have a Contact Lens Exam every year.

It depends on the prescription and frame ordered, but most glasses are available in one hour to same day. Contact lens patients receive a free trial pair during the exam, and their contact lens order within a week.
