And how much? My son has started to wear glasses and although they are not a strong prescription he only takes them off at bed time.

Might get a spare set over there???

If they glasses for your son are single lense (as in not bifocal or multifocal) and the frames you choose are not rimless (which you would not choose for a young man) they should be done in about 48 hours.

Anything complicated gets done in Jakarta which takes up to 1 week.

Hope that helps

our001 thank you so much. I'll get some on our first day I think :)

Just today I watched him walk out of his room wearing his glasses after he woke! He must like to see clearly as they are a very weak prescription!
