You might have figured out that your optometrist is not able to cut lenses for high wrap frames. More than likely their labs do not have the MEI edgers or expertise to complete complex lenses. You also might run into inexperienced opticians who say they can fit your prescription into any wrap frame. This is not true. Yes, any prescription can be cut into the lens, no matter how strong the prescription is. The issue is, can you see clearly out of the lens? Wrap lenses reduce the field of vision by making it narrower. So, when you look to the left or right, your vision will be blurry, known as the fish bowl effect.
