    Hi, what is your view on polycarbonate lenses place into acetate frames? Is it preferable to place CR39 lens or PC lens into acetate frames?

    Thank you.

  2. It is more than fine to put poly carb lenses in a “acetate” plastic frame, the decision to use polycarbonate lenses is usually not based on what frame you are using, unless you are considering a drill mount, then you typically have to use polly, but it is usually based on your prescription or if safety is an issue….if you like poly carb lenses it is ok to use any frame

    There are some articles stating that the plasticizer from the acetate frames will migrate out and cause defects to the polycarbonate lenses.
    Is there anyway to prevent it?

    Thanks

  4. With all due respect, I've been an optician for 24 years and I have NEVER heard of "plasticizer migration" I also called my lab guy who fabricates my lenses for me , he is 3rd generation optical lab guy, his grandfather, his father, and now he is in the optical biz....he has NEVER heard of it either.
    I did some quick research and "plasticizer migration" has to do with PVC pipe and flooring tiles & coatings , it has to do with all types of composition mixes ....there is a VERY small amount in some plastic frames, but is NOT an issue....there was only one sunglass site that mentioned it, and it was trying to sell there own proprietary brand of lens, so personally I think they were just using the term as a sales ploy.....so if your concerned about what I feel is a non issue.....then don't buy a plastic frame, but if you want to go with about 100 years of combined experience, then get a plastic frame...
