I do not have a sharp features or a high nose bridge thus would like something to fit and yet big enough for my temple. i preferred rimless or plastic. With or without nose pad is fine

gangsterkia busy come i help you answer.

most lenses are usually plastic (default)
high degree can opt for glass - usually thinner but heavy as well

if its very light, most likely plastic. double aspheric lens can make it both thinner and slightly lighter

hope that helps

Hey bro!
Yes it is definitely possible.
Do you know roughly how high your degree roughly is?
Usually light lenses are plastic so yours is likely one too. Glasses lenses can feel the weight when you hold it too.
Yours also should be a high index lens to achieve that certain weight and thickness.

With regards to user garden mention too, yes double aspheric lenses will be slightly lighter but price is higher.

To add on the both GANGSTERKIA & thegardens3b,

if your degree is more than -10.00, ask for shops that do Lenticular (-) power lenses.

Its a special surfacing technique to taper down the thickness of the lenses, up to 30% thinner. especially effective for high prescription.

Sky, abba, Tek Kura, eyes cloud, pescara, soul, water power... these are cheap. Brand wise not too bad.

But cnt compared to those better frames
