Hi Darya,

Based on your answers, here’s our 1-2-3 on how Topology can best solve your needs.

Your Fit

How we prevent it
Glasses pinch when they are too narrow/small. Topology frames are built to fit the exact size and shape of your head and nose, eliminating any uncomfortable pinching or pressure.
How we prevent it
Headaches occur when the fit of a frame is too tight and your prescription isn’t positioned correctly in front of your eyes. Topology frames are custom-fit to your face, ensuring the lens angle, lens placement, and temple pressure is ideal for you and your prescription.
How we prevent it
A perfect bridge fit is crucial to loving your eyewear. We build the nose bridge to fit the exact size and shape of your nose which means no more ugly bridge attachments or extra nose padding. A better bridge fit also eliminates slipping and helps frames sit symmetrically on your face.
How we prevent it
Glasses slip when they are too heavy and not the right fit for your nose and ears. Topology eliminates slipping by individually sculpting lightweight materials (Italian acetate or stainless steel) to the contours of the your nose and the precise location of each ear. This surface-to-surface match creates a friction lock resulting in a  comfortable fit that stays put all day.
How we prevent it
High cheekbones or a low nose bridge can cause glasses to rest on your cheeks. Our in-app fitting captures thousands of 3D measurements used to sculpt your frame so it sits comfortably on your face without touching your cheeks. When sculpting your fit, we increase the height of the nose pads to push the frames a bit farther off your face and relax the pantoscopic tilt to ensure they don't touch your cheeks.
How we prevent it
Along with being too small, wear and exposure to warm temperatures can cause frames to slowly revert back to their original stock shape. Topology frames will never lose their original fit because we never use heat to bend or shape them during the making process. Instead, we sculpt the material to your precise measurements and the curvature of your unique prescription.
How we prevent it
When lenses and eyes get too close, eyelashes will brush against the surface resulting in poor optics and discomfort. Our in-app facial scan is able to place lenses at your ideal vertex distance so you see clearly and never have to worry about your eyelashes brushing against your lenses. When sculpting your fit, we increase the height of the nose pads to push the frames a bit farther off your face and relax the pantoscopic tilt to ensure they don't touch your lashes.
How we prevent it
Red marks and dents are the result of excess pressure caused by the weight of a frame. Topology sculpts nose pads around the exact size and shape of your nose to evenly distribute the frame’s weight across your face. This vastly reduces the pressure that causes red marks and dents.
How we prevent it
No face is perfectly symmetrical. Our intelligent in-app face scan captures even the slightest asymmetry — from the location of each ear to the size and shape of your nose.  We treat the left and right sides of your face independently to allow the frame to sit straight no matter your facial asymmetry.
How we prevent it
Glasses that are too small can cause permanent red marks, pressure headaches, and general discomfort. Topology frames are made to order, so every style is sized to the precise width and shape of your face.
How we prevent it
Glasses that are too big will slide down your nose and affect the alignment of your prescription. Topology frames are made to order, so every style is sized to the precise width and shape of your face.
How we prevent it
Thick lenses cause glasses to look and feel heavy. So, we ensure your lenses are in the highest index (up to 1.74) required to achieve the lightest, clearest, and most attractive outcome.
How we prevent it
How glasses feel on your face is impacted by type of material, lens thickness, and weight distribution. Topology eyewear feels weightless because we individually sculpt frames to distribute their weight evenly across your nose and size temple arms to properly match your ears. We also make sure to use the highest index lens required for your prescription as well as ultra-lightweight frame materials.
How we prevent it
All prescriptions assume your frame will perfectly position your lenses in front of your eyes, but that is often not the case. We create lenses that are individually surfaced with freeform optics, meaning they’re adapted to provide the clearest possible vision no matter where your focus is. The result is a larger rage of view and sharper eyesight with less distortion. For progressive wearers, the results are even more impressive, with substantially reduced peripheral distortion and a wider intermediate and reading area.

Your Needs

We offer several unique shapes in Italian acetate or stainless steel. All our frames are sized to fit your face as you preview them in our app. It’s like walking into a store where everything's pre-made to fit you. Once your selfie fitting is complete and your fit is calibrated, you can customize the color, material, size, and style of your frame. You can even personalize the engraved inscription on the inside temple arm.
We offer tinted, mirrored, and transition lenses, as well as polarization to protect your eyes from sun and UVA/UVB exposure. If you order eyewear with any of these treatments, we’ll check back after the order is placed to confirm your design is optimized for outdoor use.
Screens are now fully integrated into our daily routines, meaning it’s more important than ever to protect your eyes from harmful blue light. Along with guaranteeing a comfortable fit, we also offer a blue-light blocking lens coating that assists in reducing eye fatigue, strain, and dryness caused by screens.
Topology frames are individually crafted at our headquarters in San Francisco. Each frame is sculpted from cotton-based Italian acetate or American-made stainless steel. All our materials are hypoallergenic, lightweight, flexible, and will never discolor, chip, or corrode — hinges included.
Who says you can’t wear glasses (or sunglasses) while you exercise? Stay comfortable in eyewear that’s made to stay put while you run, bike, climb, or even play tennis. We also offer tinted, mirrored, and transition lenses, as well as polarization to protect your eyes from sun and UV exposure.
We know most glasses don’t fit most people, which is why we never rely on generalized industry templates to make our eyewear. Instead, we combine millimeter-accurate technology with bespoke tailoring to create perfect-fitting glasses for one person at a time.

If your prescription is older than 2 years, you’re due for a checkup.

Don’t worry though, you can place an order anytime and provide an updated prescription when you have it. It’s important to get your eye health examined periodically even if you aren’t experiencing any vision problems. *
The majority of people who wear glasses require single-vision prescriptions, which correct for one field of vision (near or distance).

We can fill any lens type, out of any material, in any prescription. Topology lenses are individually made to match your 3D data and frame style. All lenses come standard with premium coatings and the option to add sun tints, transitions, blue-light blocking, or polarization
* For those purchasing prescription eyewear, the California Board of Optometry requires we use a valid prescription written less than 2 years ago. We accept a photo of your prescription or an email forwarded from your optician.
