I am thinking about getting a pair of Wayfarer RX5184 #2012 52mm with progressive transitions lenses in GLASS. I realise that these will be heavier than plastic or polycarbonate. (I don't play sports, so unbreakability isn't really a requirement for me). I recently wore an old pair of glasses
with glass lenses and was amazed how clear they are compared to plastic/polycarbonate (also, not a scratch on them).
What is the index of the glass lenses your lab uses for these? I have had glass lenses in the past and I was wondering if higher index glass is normal these days compared to 20 years ago. Will they be thicker than Polycarbonate?
My prescription is :
Right -4.50 -1.00 163 ADD +1.25
Left -3.00 -1.00 70 ADD +1.50
Also, do the gray transitions get darker than the brown?
