5. User reviews and customer support


5.1 User review of TajimaTEMXC1501

Verified Buyer

“I’m very happy to write this review because i was unable to get my sunglasses fixed and discovered Tajima and now i so happy because i love my sunglasses. Thank you Tajima and I will direct others to you.”

“I ordered a prescription lens from Tajima Direct and I’m so happy with them. It’s the only place that customizes the lens to fit any type of frame. I’m glad that my favorite frame does not go to waste, on top of that I don’t have to spend more money on the frame, which can cost a lot of money. Their prices are comparable, but what sets them apart is their customer service. They are willing to assist you with any questions or walk you through to make sure you get the exact lenses that perfectly fit your frame. I strongly recommend Tajima Direct for any type of lens. Hopefully, the lens stays scratch-free for some time.”
