bazzer: ow!? If I'd known about that I might have stuck with glasses instead of spending nearly $10K on surgery!? My eyes were as bad as yours and the expense of high-RI glasses (and lack of frame choice actually)?finally got to be too much for me.
P.S. How did get titanium (I'm auming thin) frames?? Even with the highest index, my lenses were always so thick at the edge.? Perhaps you don't mind the look?
Yep, thin frames and thick lenses - they are not as bad as you might think. They always cut the lens so that the frames are more towards the outer edge, so front on it's hard to notice. I personally wear contacts half the time anyway (and I'm marred so no chicks to woo), so the thick lenses don't bother me. I choose smaller frames to minimize the effects but that's about it. I personally also feel that going frameless emphasizes the thickness of already thick lenses.
Frankrockk: sorry for making your OT thread even more OT, I didn't mean for this to become a general glasses discussion :)
