Regarding the frames, I can only express my gratitude that a plastic frame exists in these dimensions. My difficulty is a narrow bridge and smallish PD, but a wide head by comparison. This unforced, outward design (not an edgy, super-funky, stylized wide frame) makes it a natural fit for my head so that it doesn't really draw attention to any narrow or wide parts of me, nor to the glasses themselves. They fit. Without pushing into my temples. Or smudging my eyelashes against the lens. Or pushing up the frame with my cheeks. I am very pleased with the substantial, sturdy feel of the frame -- without being heavy. AND, they have spring hinges (watch out for Warby Parker). I have every reason to believe these will be durable frames! Regarding the lenses, in the end, I chose EyeBuyDirect because they offer the option of 1.74 high index at a very competitive price. My goal/experiment with this pair of glasses was to get a thick, darker frame with as thin of a lens as possible to get away from the problem of light catching the edge of my lens, creating a halo effect of concentric circles to look through. In my last pair of relatively small circular frames with a metal rim, my peripheral vision (anything not straight ahead, not even 45*) was destroyed in bright light and especially during night driving. So, I was trying to cover the edge of the lens with the rim of the frame. At -10 with this 1.74 high index, I didn't quite get there, but there is a noticeable difference in my vision. It is probably an option somewhere, but if I had it to do over again, I would very clearly request in the comments of my order to NOT roll and polish the edges. The "raw" frosted edge stops more light than the clear, shiny edge, but these are way more than fine for now. As for the service, I really came to appreciate the user-friendly website and the search tools to narrow down the RIGHT options. I bounced around nearly every frame/glasses website on the interwebs for over a week (probably 40+ hours searching), and I kept coming back here. Their products were the right style, quality, and fit. I found lens and frame options that I liked and wanted. The price was right -- and they offer great discounts. And, after I placed the order, I got regular email updates with the progress of the order until they were shipped. My eyes bothered me every day. I needed a new prescription and new frames. I have a very limited budget and was considering layaway options. Heck, this makes up for any lack of vision insurance (I've had frame+lenses cost $700+ without an eye exam). You have converted me, EBD, and I may never leave your side.Show more
