The will be a little thick in the edges. But from the front they'll look great. No one will notice. But it'll be about as rich as 3-4 non rx lenses on the edge. So 4.8 to 6mm is about normal. But it varies depending on your measurements, distance between eyes etc.
Thanks Chris. The wealth of knowledge I’ve found in here with your name on it is impressive and I appreciate your help.

Hey all,

Hope it’s ok if I pop in and ask a couple questions?

I’ve been wearing Oakley for 25+ years at this point, from OG Frogs up to my current favorite SI Fuel Cells. Yeah, I’m old :)

I’ve been wearing them with contact lenses for most of that time and wearing whatever was cheap for eyeglasses the rest of the time. Went in for my annual exam at Target (it’s close, they have good insurance benefits and I like their doc) and went to order a new pair of glasses. They had a pair of Flak 2.0 with clear lenses on the shelf that I liked, so went ahead and pulled the trigger on a pair of TRANS8 clear to gray. Got what I consider a good price when I bought them with my contacts.

So, question one: Target Optical is also owned by Lux, so I’m assuming they’re ordering Oakley lenses rather than third party. The order form has “Authentic Oakley” on a couple of the lines as well. Is that a safe assumption?

Second question: I wear a -4 prescription. How much thicker than standard Oakley lenses should I be expecting?

Thanks!

This is from my receipt. I haven't gotten any word back that they aren't able to fulfill the order, so it would appear that they're able to be ordered. At least from Target Optical...
