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.
My first order of Vint & York and they're my new fave glasses: so well-made and designed, really compliment my rather full, heart-shaped face, and the subtle cat-eye lift with the vanilla tortoise corners on the black frames (cookies & cream) makes me look just a wee bit younger. I love them, and also appreciate the combination of effective customer service while I awaited their arrival, and the cool case that accompanied them upon arrival. I'll be ordering more frames from Vint & York in the future. Good stuff.
The pink on the Pink Lemonade color was fantastic and sassy. The rest of the colors were nice but definitely on the dark side. I had to return these because they were a little tight and more importantly the lens height wasn't large/tall enough. I could still see the top of the frame and that bothered me.
Light-weight frames. The top of the frame is a bit distracting.
Nice design, unique and well made.
The pair came pretty quickly, nicely packed.
I received a lot of compliments. Suitable for round shape face. It looks retro and edgy at the same time
Absolutely love these frames! They fit my face very well! Had them shipped to my home in CT and received them quickly!
