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 truly love the look and comfort of these frames. But I was terribly disappointed when after only 6 weeks of wear I discovered the plastic tips on the ear pieces are cracking. They have not been left inside the car in the heat and I can’t think of anything that would have caused the cracks to develop. I am still wearing them and hoping the tips don’t break completely off because I love the way these frames look. But for the price I expected better quality.
