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.
I love wearing glasses. I have collected and worn vintage eyewear for over 20 years, and at some point stopped looking for vintage frames since most of them are in disrepair these days. However, I am always on the hunt for the next new pair of funky frames, that are also MADE WELL, and reasonably priced. I was so thrilled to find Vint & York, and these Mina glasses. The perfect modern cat eye, sized to fit my giant modern head. Worth every penny! I will be purchasing my frames from V&Y as long as I still have these failing eyeballs in my skull. <3
I love them!!!
they are so different. and retro. i get soo many compliments. i love them!!
My Mina coffee and cream frame was delivered promptly to the UK. Lovely shape, good size and unusual combination of colours. The frame certainly meets my two top priorities - to look interesting and to be a total contrast to my other, heavily rimmed spectacles. However, I am a bit disappointed that the frame is not as vibrant and bold as it looks on the model online.
I got the clear/black Mina (although was highly tempted by the red/leopard). I chose those because I wanted glasses that fade away. At first these were much larger than i was expecting. Also my new prescription + blue light lenses made me slowly try these out. I finally gave them a solid go this week and got tons of compliments. I was worried that the blue light lenses would detract from the clear frame but they dont. Overall cute, sassy, artsy and much more lightweight than my older glasses. I wish they had a virtual try on so I rated the frames a 4.
