I personally think you would be better going to Optilabs and getting some made there.
Thanks, I'm open to suggestions of other companies. Naturally Boots only promote their partners.
Optilabs seem to offer a lot of different packs for each set of frames, but I don't really know what I'm looking at here. Whats the difference between single/bifocal/varifocal? Will I find that on my prescription?
IME vented lenses are essential to stop fogging, but then I run hot.
I thought this would be the case, will certainly bear that in mind looking at them.
Even vented will fog up at a standstill or low speed, not so much of an issue when the lenses aren't providing your vision, but it is when they are.
Existing glasses fog up often at low speed as it is, I guess it's something I'll get used to if I have to.
The other issue with the models without RX inserts is that the width/wrap of the lenses mean that your vision often distorts away from the centre of your lenses, you don't realise how much you use your peripheral vision until it's not there.
So, RX inserts are a good thing then? I hadn't even considered what the warp effect of the lens could be like. Good points, thanks!
As I say, for me the answer is contacts and regular lenses
Tried contacts, and couldn't stand them unfortunately.
I'm keen to hear what others think, must be some others out there who can provide some feedback?
