I was looking for a new pair of prescription sun glasses today, but every pair I like had to high of a wrap. The lady told me I have a high astigmatism. My prescription reads: Right -050 -125x 100 Left -075 -075x 60. I was looking at the RB4124 and RB4057. Would either of these work well with my prescription, if not could you suggest an adequate pair?

Dear Cody,

Astigmatism occurs when the cornea is shaped more like an oblong football than a round baseball. In most eyes that have astigmatism, the oblong or oval shape causes light rays to focus on two points in the back of your eye, rather than on just one. This is because, like a football, an astigmatic cornea has a steeper curve and a flatter one. With this being said a lens needs to bend certain light rays to compensate for the cornea's oval shape.

Wrapped frames with large lenses make this difficult and can cause further blurriness and distortion. In the case of the Ray-Ban Prescription Sunglasses RB4124 the lenses are too large. Ray-Ban Prescription Sunglasses RB4057 is better. Please take a look at RB2129 or RB4122 which may be ideal for you. It's best that you stay under a 55mm lens size.

I hope this helps. Call me if you have any other questions at 1-800-504-5897 ext 320

I have astigmatism, the glasses I have now are fine for me, but because there was a 1 dollar check up at a place near me(I think Dr. Bizer's vision world) I went and got a check up.
My Rx through them is
OD: SPH -3.00, CYL -5.00, Axis 12
OS: SPH -2.00, CYL -6.00, Axis 180

I don't know my current Rx but plan on finding out soon. My family optometrist told me my eyes had stabilized and wouldn't see much change or any dramatic change anymore now that I had gotten older and that it had even improved since he last saw me, but when I went to these people they said that it was lucky I could drive over to their building and that I was nearly blind.

But with the Rx I gave you, would it be possible to put them in http://www.opticsplanet.com/ray-ban-eye ... x5154.html frames?

Dear Jon,

I think the Ray-Ban Clubmaster Eyeglass Frames RX5154 is a good choice for you. The frame is very flat and it should not negatively effect your astigmatism. Stay away from a wrapped frame either 8 or 6 base. These frames could cause serious blurriness and distortion. Consider OpticsPlanet Inc for this job. We use one of the largest labs in Illinois. They never let us down.

I just tried-on some Ray Ban RB4115 sunglasses today. I love the way they fit. My face is narrow. I find that your online competitors do not offer this frame with prescription lenses. I'm assuming that it may be because they may not be appropriate depending on the prescription.

My prescription is:

OD -1.00 -0.50X75
OS -1.75 -0.75X85
PD 60

Can I get this prescription in the RB4115? Will it require high index lenses?

Great chioce in sunglasses!

The Ray-Ban Prescription Sunglasses RB4115 will work fine with your prescription and do not require the high index lenses, polycarbonate will work great with these.

If I might add, make sure you select a lens color for them when you are placing the order otherwise they are clear. My suggestion would be to do a polarized lens because you will find that it makes a big difference when you are out and the sun is out.

We hope you like them and we are happy to be of any further assistance.

Hello,

Thank you for the post. The Ray-Ban Prescription Sunglasses RB4124 should work fine for you as it is not extremely wrapped. However you may have some edge thickness due to the large lens size. I spoke to Bolle in regards to the Bolle Troost TRU RX Prescription Sunglasses. They feel that the Troost should work for you as well.

Please let us know if you have any other questions regarding your prescription and a frames limitations. We are here to help.

Pterygium (pronounced "tur-RIDGE-ium") is a benign thickening of the outer coating (conjunctiva) of the eye that grows onto the cornea. You may want to discuss your options with your optician, they may have some information and recommendations. Once you have spoke to them we can produce some custom lenses for you from our most reliable and qualified lab.

Keep us posted or call us at 1-800-504-5897 option 5 for eyewear!
