How does iLeasing work?

Select your new frames and customize your lenses, much like you would if you were buying.

Then at checkout, select iLease, and we perform some simple math:

A 20% initial payment, 60% split into twelve, interest-free monthly payments, with 20% left over at the end as a “buyback” payment.

As an example, let’s say you iLease a pair of glasses valued at $300.

  • Your 20% initial payment is $60.
  • Then you pay $15 per month for 12 months.
  • Then your buyback payment, due on the 13th month, is $60. But you have some options at the end of the lease!

What are your options at the end of the lease period?

  • Keep the glasses you own and we’ll simply process the buyback payment. Done, they’re yours!
  • Choose to lease a new pair (and keep the old pair) and receive 50% off the buyback payment. A 10% discount off the old pair, and the start of a new lease!
  • Or, return the glasses and we will automatically cancel the buyback payment. Yours for one year at 20% off the purchase cost!


If you decide at any time during your leasing period that you’d like to upgrade to a new pair, Trade-Ins are easy too!

Log in to your iLook account using your email and the password you set up when you made a purchase. Then, when you check out, you’ll see any pair you’re currently leasing listed under Trade-In.

Select the pair you’d like to return, and process the iLease payment normally. You’ll be charged a new 20% initial payment, and your new trade terms will appear when you confirm your order (you can view them in your Order History as well).

Payments on your old order will automatically be paused. When the new pair arrives, a return label will be included. Simply return your old pair within two weeks of receiving the new ones, and your new iLease begins!

What if I lose the glasses I’m leasing?

We can’t be held responsible if you lose your glasses. You’ll have to finish out the terms of the lease. However, you can begin a new iLease right away.

What if my glasses start to feel uncomfortable?

Come by one of our stores for a free adjustment.

When will my glasses arrive?

Our turnaround time for glasses is 10 days. Some orders that require additional work or sending for custom parts may take longer; we will contact you if your glasses will require a little more time.
