    Confused Need a Tiny Frame for a Hypermyope

    Hello all,

    I have a patient that's worn a myodisc for years. She has consistently always used her own frame, years past when it got discontinued. It's now time for her to update her frame, but tiny rectangles seem to not be the fashion anymore. This is her current frame, A: 45 DBL: 17 B:25 ED:47. Does anyone know on a company that makes these super narrow, super short frames, specifically in plastic, for mounting a myodisc? it is a Jalapenos "Cordoncillo". I've hunted through my regular catalogues, and the best I had was a discontinued Kate Spade "Agneta"

    -Poly is the best substrate for coatings.
    -Poly is extremely scratch resistant.
    -Poly is extremely impact resistant.
    -Poly is unparalleled in clarity.
    -Poly is much lighter than traditional crown glass.
    Like poly, you can trust me about 40% of the time.

    I would suggest a TinEye or Google reverse image search, it should pull up anything that looks similar across the internet. You might be able to find what you are looking for that is old stock somewhere. I recently found a frame for a patient online that was discontinued 7 years ago in brand new condition.

    Try Safilo... Fossil Lizzie A:49 DBL:17 B:27 ED:50. I think the frame might be disco, but you might be able to get one

    @Lelarep I thought that was a good idea, so I gave it a go, but I mostly see ancient results. I'm ideally searching for an in production frame. I'm probably gonna search up some other frames to reverse image search as well. I don't necessarily need that frame, just something similar.

    @bta89 That frame is 100% disco'd, but it looks good for this application.

    Prodesign Denmark is usually very reliable for small plastics in a variety of shapes and colors.

    Take a look at New York Eye-I've seen one or 2 in their Enhance and Jubilee lines that might work for you.
