    Hi,

    I'm new here/Noob - i have a quick question bout donor lenses, you can just reply Yes it is possible or No its not (a quick explanation would be helpful though)

    Few months back i ordered a Holbrook Lens and had someone i didn't know personally cut it to be shaped and fitted to a Juliet frame. I shipped it and days after it went back already cut then i personally fitted it and it was perfect no further questions.

    Now there are comments in my post from a social media that it is NOT possible to have the Holbrook lens as a donor due to its curve or what so ever.

    Again I personally installed the the cut lens to my Juliet frame and it was perfect ( aside from the obvious uneven edges from cutting ).

    So yes, the question is, is it possible to have the holbrook lens as a donor for my Juliet? or was i scammed and replaced my original lens to other brands.

    Thanks in advance,

    The base curve of a Holbrook lens is 6, whereas a Juliet's is 8.75. They will fit but there will be some distortion at the extremities because of the mismatch.

    Thanks for the reply, As you can see from the photos attached - it is well fitted. Do you think the Holbrook lens that i sent was replaced by other brands?

    There was no problem installing the lens, it fits right thought the space of the frame.
