But some refuse.

A few ECPs have fit prescription lenses into Snapchat Spectacles, the popular new product that allows users to capture short videos.

Business Insider quotes a LensCrafters spokesperson saying the company has “fitted a handful of Snapchat spectacles with lenses in our stores.” But the service is on a “case-by-case basis,” the spokesperson said, noting: “Ultimately, we need to be sure every lens we create for a frame is done so to the highest standard of quality.”

One Twitter user posted that he’d had no luck with such an endeavor.
