STEP 4 OF 4: Choose Lenses Material
A high index lens provides a number of benefits to the wearer:
- Are thinner and less noticeable in the profile of the glasses.
- High index lenses reduce eye distortion. (also known as the "coke bottle" effect)
- These lenses are more lightweight making the glasses more comfortable to wear.
I've bought 2 frames at the same time, the one I received (felicita) is wonderful.
I am really anxious about when grandiose will arrive.
This GRANDIOSE pair was too large & kept sliding down my face. As such, I had to return them because its width across the nasal bridge rendered it unusable for me.
However, they are beautiful eyeglasses & if the fit was correct, I would have kept them.
Absolutely beautiful and I've received tons of compliments!!
Love these frames but note that some retailers won’t put lenses in these thick frames. Lenscrafters and in house both will but you will want your pupils measured professionally for the correct placement if you need bifocals lenses.
I absolutely love them!!! The only minor thing is they slide down at times but I will get them adjusted soon. However, the classic modernity of these glasses is exactly what I was looking for. I got the black ones - great quality. I have received countless compliments of them. So worth it!
