Tired of your thick, heavy eyeglasses? We don’t blame you. Thankfully, there is an easy solution to your problem – High-index lenses. High-Index eyeglass lenses are the right choice if you want thinner, lighter lenses and eyewear. We recommend these lenses for people with a strong prescription.
Because most eyeglass wearers are nearsighted, they require corrective lenses that are thinner in the center, but really thick at the edges of the lens. Not surprisingly, the stronger the prescription, the thicker the glasses are!
Eyeglass lenses are able to correct vision because they bend the light as it passes through the lens. The amount of light-bending, or refraction, that’s needed to provide good vision is determined by the eyeglass prescription.
High-Index lenses are able to bend or refract the light more efficiently than traditional lenses, leaving you with thinner, lighter and more comfortable eyewear.
For a better fit, better vision and improved appearance, people with strong prescriptions can’t beat high-index lenses.
