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.
These are probably the most fashionable glasses I ever purchased (Ivory Tortoise). I love the pop of red and I get so many compliments when I am wearing them.
I normally have thick lenses, but with great assistance from Vint & York - I must have the thinnest, lightest lenses I've ever had -and I am a life long eye glass wearer with very poor eyesight.
I find myself wearing these daily, despite the original plan when I purchased was to wear them occasionally. They do go with everything!
Overall great design, quality and service! Another slam dunk from Vint & York!
