Frames can be categorized into all sorts of different categories, from sizing to gender, lens shape to frame shape, curvature to lens edging type.
For the sake of ordering prescription glasses online, this article concerns frame types and how certain ones can limit your lens or prescription options.
Curvature, lens size, even the way the lens is inserted into the frame can affect your lens choices. When shopping for prescription glasses, it’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with what your limits are before browsing your options. It is a shame when customers call us after much browsing to say they’ve chosen a frame, but the form doesn’t allow them to enter their prescription in. Better to know what will work before choosing a style that may leave you disappointed.
Knowing these guidelines should make it easier for you to narrow your search criteria, and it may save you some disappointment as well. We do our best to accommodate all requests, but current optical technology dictates that certain things just cannot be done yet.
