Hello Fellow Myopes,
If you are new like I am, this is probably something you’ve wondered as well. Jake has some content on the topic and he says his top choice are Frameless Glasses since they have no border in the field of vision.
He also talks about the Best (and worst) Fashion Frames indicating that CLEAR Frames with Bigger Lens since the larger Circumference which allow more light in and again a large field of view.
However, for those of us that are HIGH MYOPES such as myself there are some other criteria we must consider. I am in the -9 range.
I was always pushed towards small frames with rectangler lens and I was alway told to avoid round (I think because of the shape of my face). I was told rimless wouldnt work for me, that they would be to heavy. So the very glasses Jake recommends we AVOID is what I always ended up getting.
Now that I’m educated a little more, I will be choosing CLEAR or Translucent. Now my questions to my “Experienced, Formally High Myopes” or the not so high myopes but who are in the KNOW.
At what diopter range are bigger lenses not too much of an issue? (Since the high diopter edge of the lenses gets soooo thick.)
At what diopter range would it be feasible to get rimless frames? (If we were so inclined.) (Edited: or Semi-Rimless)
I thank you in advance for any feedback on this topic.
