6 BASE LENS CURVE
Lens 'Base Curve' is a measure of the front curvature of the lens. The higher the number, the greater the curve. 6 base lenses are generally flatter across the front. 8 base lenses have a greater curve for a more 'wrapped' look.

HANDMADE ACETATE FRAMES & METAL
Made with premium quality acetate (originating from renewable resources wood pulp & cotton fibre), the ideal material for making durable eyewear. Its hue is embedded within the product rather than sprayed onto the surface, retaining colour brightness and preventing peeling & fading. OTIS handmade frames have stainless steel wires injected into the temples for adjustability - a task best performed by an Eye Care Professional. Our metal components (eg: temples, nose bridges) are made from hard metals - either stainless steel or Monel (a type of hard metal alloy comprised of nickel and copper) These metals are resistant to corrosion and fast flowing sea water.
