Single Vision Trivex 1.53 with Anti Reflective Coating


We all want our vintage glasses to last forever and Trivex 1.53 lenses are a great way to help you preserve your lenses. Three times stronger than standard CR39 1.5 plastic lenses, they are made up of a strong, tough, flexible lens material which comes with a 2 year anti breakage guarantee, an anti reflective coating 100% UV protection. The coating further enhances the cosmetic appearance of your lenses by reducing reflections, glare and increasing clarity.  

The lenses are composed of a thinner lightweight material making it suitable for those with higher prescriptions. Its strong composition and durability also makes it perfect for those opting for a Supra or Rimless frame adding strength to the lens. 

We also recommend this lens design for low prescriptions up to a +/- 3.00 or those with active lifestyles. 

These lenses are of high optical quality and turn your dream vintage glasses into a wearable and purposeful accessory. 


Size Guide and Frame Measurments


It is important when purchasing your vintage glasses that the size of the frame is taken into consideration. All our frames have the measurements displayed for each frame on a tab called Measurements. The measurements displayed are the Lens Width, Bridge Width, Temple Length, Temple Width & Lens Depth. The measurements provided indicate the size of your glasses and are all recorded in millimetres.

Lens Width is the distance across the lens measured from the bridge. This distance can be dependent on the style of the glasses chosen, for example round glasses will have a smaller lens width. People with high prescriptions are better to keep the lens width as small as possible, as the greater the lens width the thicker the lenses.

Lens Depth is the depth of the lens at the greatest point.  A frame needs a minimum Lens Depth of 28mm to accommodate varifocals. 

Bridge Width is the distance between the lenses which sits across your nose. The greater the bridge width the wider the bridge across the nose. 

Temple Length is the length of the side from the dowel point to the end tip. Its important the side length is long enough to sit over your ear. 

Temple Width is the width of the frame across the inside of the front of the frame from temple screw to screw. This indicates the width of the frame, and is a great measurement to compare to your existing spectacles.
