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’ll start with the obvious; yes I’m a guy and these are women’s frames. I much prefer the color, shape and how the frame geometry complements my face shape as well as how the frame softens my facial features. With that, this was my first experience with V&Y and was pleasantly surprised. The virtual try on is about 90% accurate, and turnaround time from order to delivery was about 1.5 weeks. All I needed to do when I opened the box was adjust the temples to fit, but that’s expected. The brown of the frame is translucent as is the off-white base color. The prescription, pupillary distance and fit was spot on. After adjustment, they’re quite comfortable. They’re also a bit on the wider side, so keep that in mind. Overall, I really like this pair and will add it to my rotation. The only thing I would do different is maybe a tint, but I don’t know what V&Y’s tint density is; a 20% brown gradient would make these perfect.
I love these glasses. They are funky, fly, and classy.
I get non stop compliments every day!
