STEP 5 OF 5: 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 hope Vint & York never stop making these frames! I feel like I found the frames I had been looking for my whole life. They have a very vintage shape but feel timeless and modern too. They are comfortable and lightweight and are perfect for people like me who need progressives with three different scripts. The over sized lens is perfect for this because the transition between prescriptions is not smooshed together. I actually own a back up pair and honestly want a back up for my back up because I never want to be without these.
I love them! My new fave sunglasses. Getting lots of compliments.
