Curved lens trouble
« Reply #1 on: July 14, 2011, 02:58:02 PM »
Q: The new curved frames causes me eye irritation. Straightening the frame so that the lenses are on a flat plane, greatly reduces the problem. Do you have any information on this condition? Is it still possible to get the old style frames?
A: The answer to the second part is easy. In today's optical market, you can get pretty much any frame style you desire. There are literally thousands of choices. Regarding the first part of the question, it is not clear to me what is being described. As lenses increase in power, it is more critical that they be seated a certain way in relation to the eye. If they are not, they act like a different strength of lens. The new free-form process of lens manufacture can greatly reduce distortion problems from curved lenses.
