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 absolutely love the shape and feel of the Rare Bird frames. So much so that I am going to order another pair. I am really impressed with the thinness of the lens and the clarity. I purchased another pair of prescription lens from another brand and there is no comparison to the Rare Bird in terms of style and quality.
Fabulous and made for a larger face perfect fit!
I did the legwork as to what I was interested in and wanted to try on. I went to the Elizabeth St shop and Olivier was knowledgeable and able to get these squared away. He mailed the glasses to me with the understanding if I needed help I would come back in. The customer service was exceptional, and the glasses are comfortable and attractive beyond what I could have hoped for.
It was a very good value.
I got the thinnest lenses in photochromatic.
Very Pretty. Makes an old woman look 20 years younger
I literally get compliments on these frames daily! No joke! I was looking for retro style cat eye glasses and these are absolutely perfect.
