You also have the option of asking your optometrist if you can safely go 1mm flatter/steeper in the base curve to perhaps get to a base curve that is offered. You also have the option to see what the optometrist's office can order to suit your measurements, or you can just get product names from them and order online if it is cheaper, or order some custom lenses from a place like 9mmsfx.
Thanks. I haven't been to the doc yet, but I was a little worried about what the options were if I ended up with an uncommon set of measurements. Now I know there are a few options!
