Along with our diverse collection of frames, we are happy to provide a wide array of lens options. We are especially excited to offer 1.74 high index lenses. These high index lenses can be an especially attractive option if you want thinner, lighter glasses.
1.74 High Index Lenses: The Basics
1.74 high index lenses are the thinnest possible lenses on the market today. The 1.74 represents the lens index number. High index lens numbers typically range from 1.53 to 1.74. Conventional plastic lenses, for instance, have a refractive index of 1.50.
As the number increases, the lenses become thinner. Therefore, one of the key advantages of these lenses is that they are extremely lightweight. Regardless of your frame, these lenses make your glasses feel lighter on your face. The difference is night and day when you are comparing 1.74 high index lenses to plastic lenses, for instance. In fact, these lenses are about 50 percent thinner than conventional plastic lenses.
In addition to this significant weight difference, 1.74 high index lenses are more powerful lenses. They can accommodate many different types of vision needs. If you have a higher prescription, for instance, you may find that a thicker lens may not be able to accommodate your vision needs. You won’t have this problem with these lenses, as it can do all of the heavy liftings to help see—regardless of your prescription.
Finally, these lenses are more stylish compared to their counterparts. This, once again, is due to their thin construction. Their slimmer design makes them more attractive than plastic lenses, for instance, which can appear bulky and clunky. These lenses in sunglasses, for instance, can add some sophistication to your frames. And for others, while you may not be explicitly wearing these lenses for their aesthetic benefits, it is one free benefit that you can absolutely leverage. These lenses can create a more attractive profile, whether you are using them in your reading glasses or your safety glasses.
