Sean...I have Costa del Mar lenses and love them....I also have a heavy prescription (20/350 vision).....and was told by a very reliable optometrist that the wrap around will result in distorted vision ("no matter what the company says"). Costa makes a lot of different frames...mine have full side shields which improves vision, reduces glare and wind. The side shields allow for less curve in the lenses.
Also important is who fills the prescription....( was told that the lenses made by computer driven machines often result in the polarization effect not being lined up properly....thus, you have to tilt your head to get the full effect....my optomitrist had them made for me the old fashion way....by hand by a person who still had the skill to do it......they are perfect!
