I currently have a pair of Reiz frames, which works b/c the frame is fairly thick. However, I've been eyeing a pair of Persols to change things up, and the frames are pretty thin. With the thickness of my current lenses, they'd stick out for sure. Do I have options, or am I out of luck?
NO PROBLEM. If you are concerned with thickness go with a high index 1.74. More readily available now and for a better price than in the past. They will be thin.
ALSO try to find a frame where your eyes are in the middle of the frame, as opposed to inwards. If your eyes are in the middle the lenses will be cut to be a bit thinner due to de-centration. De-centration is used to compensate for the distance between your eyes. So that your eyes are directly over the focal point.
