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 ordered Myrtle progressives in teal, and when I got them, had to reluctantly admit the colorway did not suit me. So I had the lenses swapped into the black version. Now I'm thrilled, and the progressive lenses work better for me than the ones I had custom fit in the shop of a highly sought after and regarded academic practice at Mass General. They are stylish, but not too over-the-top. Well done Vint & York! Look forward to an in-person visit on my next trip to NYC!
Beautiful glasses but they came with a wrong prescription and I sent them back and waiting for them to get back to me. It was made very easy with a shipping lab label and all of that sent to me.
Utterly divine and packaged immaculately.
