Barrel distortion     

Please note that steeply curved lenses used in this safety frame (which gives it its slick wraparound look)

can sometimes give the wearer symptoms of barrel distortion initially until adaptation occurs after a period of use.


This can be more noticeable in higher or negative lens powers.


If you have ever experienced difficulty in adapting to new spectacles we would suggest a flatter fronted 

frame such as the Norville S0220, Titmus SW06E, Infield Vision 12, Cat Insulator or Bolle B808 for example.
