Ordering Prescription Safety Glasses

Prescription (Rx) safety glasses can be ordered by following the process below.

NOTE: See the ordering information on the AggieSupply Scientific Store web page for other safety items. Safety Services Safety Net 5 has more information about eye and face safety protection.

Ordering Process

Essilor Products

We recommend that you use the university agreement with Essilor.  Before proceeding, check with your department regarding the amount of your prescription safety glasses allowance.

  1. Create a Requisition in the Kuali Financial System (KFS), citing agreement number A55333.
  2. After the Requisition is fully approved, the Purchase Order is created. 
  3. Bring the printed P.O. to an eye care professional of your choosing that provides Essilor products and services.
  4. When you receive the invoice against the Purchase Order, a PDF copy should be emailed to the AP Invoicing Service desk at invoicing@ucdavis.edu for payment processing.

Note: If visiting Dr. Dennis J. Guerrieri in Davis, please bring this form. Your eye care provider or your department may have its own form.

Other Brands

If your eye care professional does not offer Essilor products, or, if you would prefer prescription safety glasses from a provider other than Essilor, follow the process above, but do not cite an agreement number on the requisition.

Using a P-Card

A Procurement Card (P-Card) may also be used to pay for prescription safety glasses. If your provider encounters issues processing the payment, contact Bank Card Manager Vartan Vartkessian at vvartkessian@ucdavis.edu for assistance.

Eye Examination Process

The cost of an eye exam is at your own expense, or through your own medical insurance coverage.

You will need an eye exam if It has been over one year since your last exam, or you do not have your lens prescription and cannot get it from your eye doctor.

You do not need an eye exam if you have a current prescription. You can call your eye doctor and they can send the prescription to you, if the exam was less than one year ago.
