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 get nonstop compliments on these glasses. It's almost annoying. thread is a tad bit brighter than expected but it still works. it would have been nice for the arms on the glasses to be hinge so they don't stretch out.
These frames are so cute! I was blown away at the quality compared to another online company that I recently had a bad experience with! These fit my face perfectly but I knew they probably would as I have frames almost the exact same size. I did have to return them as I was expecting the red color to be darker (like burgundy) as that was the color on the virtual try on. The red is close to a primary red, which I felt clashed with my hair color (burgundy). But if you know this info up front, you can make an informed decision on whether the color will be an issue. Aside from the color, these frames were very nice! I chatted with customer service a few times and each time was a positive experience. 🙂 I have ordered a new frame to try and I'm hoping these work great. 🤞🏽
Where are the reasonably sized frames in the 48 -52 range?
I love wearing glasses. I have collected and worn vintage eyewear for over 20 years, and at some point stopped looking for vintage frames since most of them are in disrepair these days. However, I am always on the hunt for the next new pair of funky frames, that are also MADE WELL, and reasonably priced. I was so thrilled to find Vint & York, and these Mina glasses. The perfect modern cat eye, sized to fit my giant modern head. Worth every penny! I will be purchasing my frames from V&Y as long as I still have these failing eyeballs in my skull. <3
I love them!!!
