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.
They’re large- which is the look I was going for- along with a Gloria Steimem-ish vibe HOWEVER it’s more of a Jeffrey Dahmer/early 80’s Jerry Garcia look.
The frames do not fit properly in the case provided, and they are quite delicate- I’m afraid that if I constantly fold and unfold the arms to store them that they will snap. Shipping took forever: ordered on 8-7 and received 8-23 only after following up on 8-22 with emails to customer service. This wasn’t the first time delayed shipping happened, this also occurred with the other two that I had ordered at the beginning of the summer, but decided to give V&Y another try- All in all they’re ‘ok’ but I probably could’ve saved a couple of bucks and purchased the frames from the bargain bin at a local optometrist chain.
Love these! So cool! So easy to wear. They arrived in record time w/a perfect prescription.
Great fit even better style!
