The article discusses some of the ophthalmic fitting and lens power issues associated with dispensing fashion and performance wrap-around style frames suitable for prescription (Rx) lenses. The amount of compensating Rx power that is required in tangential and sagittal meridians needed to yield proper visual acuity and wearing comfort is based on the degree or severity of the wrap angle of the frame. Case studies of patients with varying lens needs are described.
