STEP 4 OF 4: Choose Lenses Material
A high index lens provides a number of benefits to the wearer:
- Are thinner and less noticeable in the profile of the glasses.
- High index lenses reduce eye distortion. (also known as the "coke bottle" effect)
- These lenses are more lightweight making the glasses more comfortable to wear.
Very nice frames. I've always worn rimless or semi-rimless eyeglasses, so this was a bold switch for me. But both frames and lenses are high quality, comfortable to wear, and make a statement. For me it was time to step up- and these glasses have made the transition stylishly easy. Thanks!

Terrific. Very happy with the glasses.
I have 2 pairs of Rayban RX5154's clubmasters and 2 pairs of MOSCOT Lemtosh and a pair of Dolce & Gabana rectangular/wayfarer frames. I bought the Astor frames because I was more looking for more styles and I was checking out Warby Parker too. I think Vint & York has better styles than warby parker, and I was surprised by the quality of the Astor frames. They look really good on me too. I'm looking to purchase the Fitzgerald most likely now. Shipping was a little over 1 week with RX lenses and for 100$ how can you beat that? It comes in a beautifully cased box and WOW! I'm impressed!
I got a lot of positive reactions to the Astor frames. I chose the orange/yellow frames which have the more retro look. Fit great / look great. I'm happy.
