    I'll second Wayne at Morgan's.

    If your prescription has any strength to it, ask him about the Tri-Vex lenses. They have better optical qualities than Lexan and are half the weight and thickness of regular CR-39 plastic.

    The lenses are made large and circular and then cut down to fit the frame and position the optical center.

    Why not just contact Wayne directly. You'll get better info from him than from us!

    You can't go wrong with Morgan Optical. I wanted to update the prescription recently in my Ranger RX Sporters. I contacted them by email, but didn't understand a couple of points in the reply. Wayne called me and took twenty minutes to make sure I understood the issues and got exactly what I needed.

    Wayne is the guy. Period. I buy from him in NY, while I'm in Illinois. He has done lenses for many of my members...

    CR39 plastic - regular lens material has relatively poor impact resistance, which is why polycarbonate has been dominant impact resistance material... however, polycarbonate does not have the optical quality or tintability of CR39 plastic.

    With certain Rx prescriptions, consider TriVex for its optical quality. Both polycarb and TriVex materials have comparable impact resistance - TriVex will cost more than CR39 plastic. The choice is always yours.

    Ask him anything... Wayne will set you up well and fairly...

    best regards,
