I started with -11 / -11 but the distortion was too great, so based on my optometrist's recommendation dropped to -10.25/-10.25... and now things are both distorted and blurry.

@ghdvfddzgzdzg I had never actually considered focal height, but it makes a lot of sense why that would be important. That might be the bigger issue actually. I've had relatively small glasses all my life (from the tender age of four, rofl) so it's never come up.

I am not as nearsighted as you, but I'm up there.  My father is something like a -15.  Unfortunately, there is really only one solution if the distortion really bothers you, which is a smaller frame.  The trend towards frams right now is really big, and it seems like most frames are 50 and up, closer to 53 in many cases.  You probably need something closer to 48-50, tops.  Unfortunately, yes, that will rule out a lot of the "modern" frames.  But hey, in 5-10 years, people will think that you are way cool, and look at the picture of all the dorky people in their heavy black frames.

@LA Guy Hmm, do you know if it's width itself or total lens size that causes distortion? My current everyday frames are 53-19, making them wide but with a relatively smaller surface area compared to my Shurons, which are actually more narrow horizontally, but are much wider vertically. I've had roughly the same prescription for about six to eight years, so I guess it's possible I just got used to the distortion.

Have never thought about what your face looks like before, but based on the Jonathan Rhys Meyer pic I'd guess she meant Gunnar, but maybe she meant the longer haired white dude who's boning the Hayden Panettiere character.

@VitaTimH I don't think that AR coating will help with the distortion, but the combination of AR coating and distortion probably isn't helping. For what it's worth I think AR is always worth it. I spend a lot of time staring at a computer for work and they help immensely.

 

I guess just for comparison my current lenses are 50-20 and even that was an adjustment. I personally gravitate towards circular lenses though, which I think tend to be smaller.

Fran sounds like she hangs out in CM.

Having done Crossfit, I can't help associating the name Fran with sweat and displeasure.

Deeply superficial sounds like a contradiction in terms.

There's a goddamn MMM literally down the street from me and I've never been there. How fucked up is that?

The rent is apparently stupendously high.
