    The Pince-nez is a vintage design that became iconic when Teddy Roosevelt started rocking the style in the early 20th century. We've revived this classic in modern colors that makes reading glasses cool again. They clip comfortably on the bridge of your nose when you need to see near, and nimbly fold into a pocket when you don't. They're great when you need a little help reading the menu at a restaurant or skimming through a magazine.

    Single vision lenses are needed if you require correction for one field of vision, either distance or near vision (reading). Vint & York’s lenses consist of premium quality polycarbonate Rx lenses. Protective coatings such as high quality anti–scratch and anti-reflective coating are included in all of our lenses. Polycarbonate lenses are strong and impact resistant, making them safe to wear.
    Bifocal lenses accommodate by correcting one's distance and near vision with one pair of lenses. The two fields of vision are typically separated by a line across the lens. Our Bi Focal lenses are available with many of our optical frames. We offer high index materials as well as a blended bi focal for those who prefer no sharp line. All of our lenses include UVA/UVB protective coatings as well as high quality anti-scratch and anti reflective coatings.
    Vint & York offers Progressive Lenses that are available with many of our optical frames. Progressive lenses are a multifocal lens to help correct three fields of vision with no line separating. They correct distance, intermediate as well as reading vision in one lens. We offer Digital Progressive lenses as well as high index material progressive lenses. All of our lenses include UVA/UVB protective coatings and high quality anti–scratch and anti-reflective coating.
    If you want to receive frames with no Rx, you have two options. Optical frames will include anti-reflective polycarbonate lenses when you choose the option “Add clear non-prescription lenses”. The option “I plan on replacing demo lenses” are recommended if your optician or doctor plans on replacing the lenses. Those lenses would be a demo lens or plastic.
    A light responsive lens can also be called photochromatic lenses. These lenses darken when exposed to UV light such as the sun. They are available in polycarbonate and high index materials. When exposed to UV light the lenses will darken to your choice of color either brown or grey.

    I have had these for

    I have had these for a few weeks now and i still really like them. They are lightweight and hold on well. I have dropped them numerous times and they survived.

    Cognac Tortoise Pence Nez

    These are even nicer than I had expected, and they've become my favorite glasses within a few short hours. They were well-packaged by Vint & York and made their way from New York to India with no problems. Customer Service was friendly and prompt with all communications. Be aware that the glasses do not come with a cord, but devising one on your own is easy enough to do. The case is different than the one pictured on the webpage--it's actually better than the one pictured because it is about half the size, which is perfect for someone who wants to carry them in a shirt pocket or in the front pocket of pants; also nice is that the case seals with velcro rather than a drawstring. People who do not have prior experience with pince nez should be aware that every model and every nose is unique, and at first it can require some patience to find that precise spot on your nose that gives the most secure and comfortable fit.
