Question: Can I put my eyeglasses prescription on Costa Del Mar Reefton?
Yes and No. The answer is Yes if you have a mild myopic prescription. And then, actually if you have a mild myopic and hyperopic prescription.
I would not put, because the curvature of this frame I would not go higher than a -4.00 (diopters) then you would choose something else that maybe is not as curved as this one.
So, Yes, you can put your prescription and you can even go as far as putting your Progressive Lens or Your multifocal lens into the Costa Del Mar Reefton.
