    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    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.

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

    Deeply superficial sounds like a contradiction in terms.

    At least I think those are yoga pants. Possibly jeggings...

    I never understood these pictures where the person is smiling in one version of the picture, but looking down in the other. Do people simply lose all confidence in them selves after the first smile?
