What are you talking about you silly cunt?
In the UK you get free eye tests if anyone in your family has Glaucoma.
Why do you talk absolute shit for no reason?
You infect every thread with your bile.
You need to grow up or fuck off and get some kinda help.

I got a new pair of specs from Cubitts, my new prescription isn't a massive increase from the previous one, but is already quite strong (-4.25 in one eye and -5.25 in the other), so I decided to get the thinnest available lenses, 1.74. It's taking me ages to adjust to them though, and I'm getting a lot more glare in my field of vision than I expected, at least compared to my older lenses which were also thin, but only 1.67.
Should I wait a bit more to see if I'll adjust or ask them to reglaze them back to a 1.67 lenses (although not sure if they do offer a reglazing service)?

What styles are in for 2018, looking to get a new pair soon.
Andy, what have you been working on recently?
22 Aug 2018 20:26
Traffic jam, superior, mad men, pinball wizard of those new styles.
Going back to a thin frame would take some getting used to I think.

Like those JMM a lot - how much did they set you back?

Where stocks JMM that I can try on?

I went to Eye Company on Wardour Street. Don't know anyone else that stocks the optical range.

Didn't realise index changes make that much of a difference. That explains why mine took some time to adjust.
Does that mean you can never have extra thin lens?

The refractive index of the lens determines how much it bends the light on its way into your eye. Higher indexes bend more light and so can be thinner than lower indexes for the same prescription.
I'm not an optician so am not 100% sure but I don't think there's a recommended lower limit for prescriptions in high index lenses (i.e. they should work fine with high and low prescriptions) the main factor is cost. For low prescriptions the thickness difference between low and high index lenses is minimal but the cost difference is significant.
There are a lot of variables when it comes to prescriptions and lenses so there could be numerous reasons as to why you didn't get on with your new glasses. I remember when I wore glasses if I had a change in prescription and lenses it would take some time to get used to the new ones, things would look different, perspectives could change and so on.

Got an area of light abrasion right in the middle of one of my spec lenses and it's doing my nut.
Has anyone successfully removed with home remedies?

Not much really. Pretty sure the guy behind it is the same on who had Zechstein and Arckiv years ago which were also in the Stables Market. I haven't seen them in the flesh but they seem to get good reviews.
edit: same address so seems to be the same.
