High Index Lenses
For some of our patients, high index lenses are a necessity. However, many of our patients do not require a high index lens for their spectacle prescription. In many cases, regular plastic lenses provide better optical clarity and comfort than a more expensive higher index option. Our doctors and opticians will always make the most appropriate, cost effective recommendation to meet your needs.
When a high index lens is mandated, we have several thicknesses to choose from depending on the frame size and shape. We stock 1.74 high index lenses in most prescriptions; many of our patients receive their complete pair of high index spectacle lenses in as little as fifteen minutes. These lenses are incredibly light and provide the thinnest profile of any high index plastic lens available. This lens is the most attractive option for our patients with high prescriptions and reduces the cosmetic magnification differences.
