The “P” in P3 stands for Pantoscopic, or Panto in short. This refers to the tilt of the bottom of the frames towards the eye. The 3 refers to the 3mm difference between the height and the width of the lenses. Traditionally if the lens width was 44mm the lens height would be 41mm.

P3 glasses offer a classic and sophisticated look and are suitable both for men and women for prescription lenses or sunglasses.
