    I don't know of any lab that would agree to safety stamp any lenses in a non-safety frame, or which would put non-safety lenses in a safety frame.

    It's available in many more lens designs, coatings, powers, sizes, and photochromic options, and is much much less expensive. It's also much more impact-resistant, so much safer for kids and sports.

    Where are you getting 1.56 and 1.60 stock from? Those are not exactly best-selling lens materials.
