Don’t worry if you are in any way unsure about how to choose which lenses are the right ones for you. I’ll always advise you over the phone regarding which lenses are best suited to your own individual prescription. Below is a simple guide to help work out the cost of the new lenses.
Do you need standard lenses, thin lenses or extra thin lenses- and what’s the difference?
Generally speaking the stronger your prescription the thicker and heavier the lenses will be. Therefore standard lenses with a strong prescription could be very thick and unsightly.
Looking at your optical prescription can give you a basic guide to choosing your lenses. Look at the Sphere box (sph) on your prescription.
We Recommend That You Choose
A standard lens (1.5) if your prescription sphere (sph) value is les than 3.50 (plus or minus) – not suitable for rimless frames
A thin lens (1.6) if your prescription sph value is between 3.50 and 6.00 (plus or minus) – suitable for all frames including rimless
An extra thin lens (1.67) if your prescription sph value is 6.00 or over (plus or minus) – suitable for all frames including rimless
Super thin lens (1.74) if your prescription sph value is 8.00 or over (plus or minus) –
Standard 1.5 lenses are not a good choice for any rimless frames for two reasons. Firstly, they’re not very durable so are likely to crack where the holes are drilled to fit the rimless frame. Secondly, as part of the glazing process, the lenses have to be cut a little thicker than for standard lenses. This makes the lenses look thicker and adds to the weight.
For these reasons 1.6 1.67 or Polycarbonate lenses are recommended for rimless frames. These lenses are thinner and lighter, but also much stronger so a much better choice for durability.
1.74 are occasionally unsuitable for rimless frames as they are very brittle and less flexible than other lenses. In this instance we would look at the frame first to advise whether 1.67 or the 1.74 would be the most suitable lenses for the frame.
Please note: As rimless glazing is more technical and takes quite a bit longer to process than full or half rim frames, the factory charge me £10 extra to glaze any rimless frames. This needs to be added to the cost when rimless frames are being sent for new lenses.
