    You cannot cut small lenses to make them larger, you can only cut large
    lenses to make them smaller. If you want a larger frame, new lenses will be

    I was told that the smaller lenses would be joined into a larger lense
    is that possible will someone be able to see the join?

    I am not aware of a process that does this, suggest you ask the person doing
    it if the joint will show. You might ask to see a sample before ordering to
    make sure the appearance is acceptable to you..

    Frankly, since fusing a small lens into a large one would be a labour
    intensive single job instead of the semi automated method used for making a
    new lens, I also suspect it will be more expensive for you to have this done
    (if possible) than to get new lenses made.
