    the lenses is too flexible. the center of the len is really thin. Is

    Polycarbonate is good for rimless frames because of its high tensile
    strength and impact resistance. However the optics of polycarb are not very
    good, which affects some prescriptions more than others.

    Assuming you are talking about the center of the lens, the thinness in the
    middle of a lens is probably because of your near-sighted prescription.

    But is it the lens that is too flexible, or the frame itself? Rimless
    frames have very flexible bridges. Perhaps the bridge is not attached to the
    lens firmly enough?
