Does lens quality matter?
High quality lenses can greatly enhance the overall visual experience and the health of your eyes. Not only do they provide clear and precise vision, they also offer protection from harmful UV rays, glare, and blue light. Furthermore, high quality lenses are designed with advanced technology and materials that provide durability, comfort and lighter weight, making them a great investment for the long term.
By choosing lenses of a superior quality, you can be confident that you are receiving the best possible visual performance and eye protection, ensuring a more comfortable and enjoyable experience.
What are our thinning options?
Our lenses are crafted with advanced technology to provide the thinnest and lightest options available. Our lens thinning recommendations are tailored to your prescription for an optimal experience.
1.60 Thin & Light: +/- 2.00 SPH+CYL
1.67 Thinner & Lighter: +/- 4.00 SPH+CYL
1.74 Thinnest & Lightest: +/- 6.00 SPH+CYL
For all supra or inline lenses we recommend selecting one stage more than the thinning required for the prescription.
How long do bespoke lenses take?
As each set of lenses is bespoke and a non-stock product, please allow up to 2 weeks for them to be completed by the lab.
