Do Nerd Glasses Look Good with a High Prescription?

Having a high prescription can have a damper on your glasses. What about nerd glasses?

High Prescription Nerd Glasses

Nerdy Glasses High PrescriptionIf you have a high prescription, then you know all too well the troubles that plague strong prescription wearers when they’re shopping for glasses. Thankfully, nerd glasses are great for this.

By necessity, the stronger your prescription is, the thicker your lenses are. You can get high index lenses to reduce this, but the rule stands. And along with thicker lenses comes eye distortion (making your eyes seem larger or smaller than they are) and the aesthetically displeasing sight of thick-profile lenses that extend beyond the frame.

If you’re looking for prescription glasses for high prescription, nerd glasses are the way to go for several reasons:

  • Nerd glasses look good with a high prescription because they are designed with the thick lenses look in mind. They complement a stronger prescription by incorporating your lens thickness into the overall nerd look.
  • Nerd glasses are also great with a high prescription because of the frames’ bold lines and solid curves. Thicker lenses go right along with this substantial nerd frames theme.
  • If you have a high prescription in nerd glasses, the effect they have on your eyes will also work with the frame much better than with a non-nerd frame.
  • Because thicker lenses add weight to a frame, nerd glasses are also more comfortable with high prescriptions because they have more support and spread the weight out better than standard and wire frames.
  • There are options to reducing your lens thickness. You can get high index lenses, and the higher your index, the thinner your lenses will be. This will also make them lighter and more comfortable, and nerd glasses are great for high index lenses because of their lack of lens curvature.

Nerd glasses are a great choice for anybody with a strong prescription, both because they reduce the effect of the lens thickness, and because the thickness complements the nerd style.

Embrace the look of your glasses! Nerd glasses are a great way to incorporate your high prescription into your style, and these glasses are in right now!

Best of all, nerd glasses complement virtually any wardrobe style, from casual to punk to retro to hipster to business and formal.

      Hi Jay,

      Sounds like you have thick lenses and could use high index lenses. If you are wearing prescription lenses that are so thick that they distort your face in this way, then you really should be wearing high index. I’d suggest high index plastic 1.74 or high index glass. Please contact our customer service department if you’d like to place an order for these with us. Also, I’d advise you to call your doctor and ask what the current index of your glasses is.
