Plano Lenses vs Demo Lenses

Demo lenses are nothing but lenses that are fitted into the demo frames at the optical showroom and workshops. The only purpose of demo lenses is to give a realistic aesthetic of the frame to the users so that they can get an idea of how it would look with corrective lenses. However, there is also no corrective power on demo lenses.
