Adding on, Twoface lenses are a perfect fit on the Drop Point frame, but not the other way round.

I don't think so in the way you worded this. What do you mean?
I mean exactly what you understood from my post. A Twoface lens is compatible with a Drop Point frame, it pops snugly into a DP frame, with very minor, almost unnoticeable gaps near the nose bridge. However the opposite isn't true, a DP lens won't fit a Twoface frame.

Wow I didn't realize it was close.

The drop point is 61mm wide, so as you mentioned a two face lens (60mm) will leave a gap. Also drop point is toric, and two face is 6 base curve. So they aren't exactly interchangeable.

But in a pinch I hired it could work? I wouldn't want the gaps personally. No offense. I still think you post may be helpful for some.

+1 on the whole "gap" thing

Could you take a picture of the Twoface lenses in a drop point frame showing what (if any) gap, please?
Here you go! Almost indiscernible from a 1ft distance. Only noticed up close. But again. As Chris rightly pointed out, not everyone would be up to this hack. In my case, availability of lenses are a big hassle, lenses occasionally costing more than a new pair, so I can live with this break-fix arrangement temporarily.
