High Index and Aspheric Lenses


 

What are High Index Lenses?

In times past, strong prescriptions meant thicker, heavier lenses, giving some a “glass bottle” appearance. But now, with high index glasses available in thinner, lightweight plastic (as well as slightly heavier glass), lens wearers with stronger prescriptions can get more attractive, yet equally effective, lens products. Because high-index lenses bend light more, anti-reflective (AR) treatment is often recommended as an add-on for optimum clarity of vision. For better comfort, better vision and improved cosmetic appeal, people with strong prescriptions can’t beat high-index lenses.
