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 are super cute, and incredibly lightweight, but the glasses arrived with loose screws on the nose piece.
this is it for me. this is the one. my absolute favorite pair of specs since i needed them in 2003. the gold accent gives it just enough elegance and regality that allows me to feel professional in such oversized glasses that can be borderline comical. the shape is perfect for my face as it is square enough to properly offset my round face shape but the edges are soft to complement it. i hope they never discontinue this style. everyone can refer to me as beatrice from now on. thank you. hahah!
I could write and ode to these frames. They have serious vintage oversized vibes and are super light and comfortable. I have found it very difficult to find oversized frames that are not really chunky and these are just perfect. They look chic, sophisticated, and have a ton of attitude without feeling like these frames are wearing me instead of the other way around.
Finally! Frames that pay homage to our feminist mothers! Much gratitude.
