If you want thinner, more light-weight eyeglass lenses that are as comfortable and attractive as possible, high-index lenses are the right choice for you! If your eyeglass prescription is very strong, these lighter lenses are especially beneficial for you, as thicker lens edges can detract from your eyeglasses. A variety of "high-index" plastics have been invented which bend light more efficiently than regular glass or plastic lenses.
Replacement Lens Express offers high-index lenses in a selection of refractive indices, including High Index 1.60, High Index 1.67, and High Index 1.74 lens materials. The general rule of thumb is the higher the index, the thinner the lenses. And similarly, the thinner the lenses ,the higher the cost of the lenses. Fortunately for you, Replacement Lens Express offers these high-index, thinner lenses at a fraction of the cost of a local optometry practice! Check out our full selection today!
