Thinner & Lighter Lenses
Do you desire thinner, lighter lenses? Most of today’s eyewear choices are made of plastic or metal with rims thinner than the lens. Sometimes eyewear has no frame at all and has rimless mountings. In either case, the lens edges are highly visible, and thicker edges can detract from the appearance of your eyewear.
The good news is that a variety of new plastic materials are available to provide thinner and lighter lenses. This means less lens material can be used the correct the same amount of prescription. In addition to looking thinner, your lenses will also reduce that magnified bug-eye or “Coke bottle” look often caused by thicker lenses.
Ask a staff member about which lens material will be best and most comfortable for you.
