IIRC the Dillon PHX & Greasewood would be suitable donors for the MD... cacatman has another list which might be useful for you to determine which Dillon models would be applicable Donors.

Bear in mind though that the lens dimensions are height by width which don't take into account curvature.

Eg. If you are cutting a rectangular lens from a tapered elliptical lens, even though the dimensions seem to fit on paper, in reality, it may not work.

Also bear in mind that Dillon lenses are polarized And therefore, it is imperative that lenses are cut with their "horizons" exactly the same (as the lens you are trying to cut). ie, when cutting, it is inadvisable to change the orientation of the Dillon lens in order to accommodate a specific lens shape for your Oakleys.

So would you agree with him that Dillon PHX & Greasewood are suitable donors to MDs?

PHX is for sure an MD donor, but I don't think Greasewood is. PHX has a length of 66mm, and Greasewood is only 62mm. I don't own a Greasewood, and never had, so not 100% sure, but that's my opinion. Also, remember that these lenses are polarized, so based on the shape of Greasewood, makes me think that the angle will not help a cut for MD. I would go with PHX, which is also the ideal donor for PB1.

Random question, hope someone knows the answer. Is there a difference between regular lenses and "Asian Fit", or are just the frames different? Asking because the only lenses I have found are for regular and mine are Asian fit.
