    As an optometrist I can tell you that there are many tailor-made contact lenses to fit your prescription, they will be much pricier, but still there are.


    Me neither, after working in several optical shops I got used to that type of people. At first it would even hurt me... now I'm completely fine with them, but still think it is silly.



    You can order them with Plano (0.00) presctiption and anti-reflective coating they will look like real glasses.


    1. You can have above 6/6 vision, if a person can see from 6 meters what the norm says should be seen only from 4 they have better than 6/6 (or 20/20) vision. It is almost never tested because it is not really important if someone has better vision for distance unless they have a problem focusing at near distances.

    2. RayBans are one of the worst (if not THE worst) Luxotica brand nowadays. There are some Chinese no brand glasses way better than RayBans
    Ray Bans look sooooo cool though.

    Bummer. The AR coating is very beneficial in your case.

    I guess you can order just the frames and make the lenses in a cheap optical store in your area.

    Any idea how much that would cost? Wouldnt it be annoying with the style of glasses having them custom-made?

    the price depends on the store, just ask the stores around you.
    If it sounds too expensive just leave it the way it is (frame only) or fashion lenses...

    Just checked, I can get anti-reflection for an additional £5.
