You Can’t Go Wrong With High-Index Lenses

We all know that eyeglasses can be a great accessory for anyone. Eyeglasses can be a way to showcase your style and your personality. It can also be a great way to show how different you are from everyone else. There are so many frames to choose from, and this can make it a challenge to choose just one.

Did you also know there are different lenses you can choose from? Did you know there are different add-ons and features you can include in your eyeglasses package? You can choose cosmetic tints and other specialty tints that you want for your eyeglasses.

Shades and Colors

Cosmetic tints can come in a variety of colors. Whatever colors you like in the rainbow, you can get it for your lenses. You can even have lenses that are clear and colorful, depending on what you want for your lenses. You do not have to settle for anything that you do not want. Whatever your personality is, you can let it show through your lenses.

High-Index Lenses

Many years ago, when you found out you need glasses, your only choice of lenses was glass lenses. Fortunately, that is no longer the case. High-index lenses are available now and they have become a very popular choice. High-index lenses are called this because of the high index of light refraction.

High index lenses are very thin and light, which means you should feel very comfortable when you are wearing them. If you want to avoid the coke bottle look or the bug-eyed look, high-index lenses should be your choice for lenses.

When people talk about high-index lenses, there will be some things you will hear that you may be unfamiliar with. Here are some things that you should remember when it is time to visit your eye doctor.

Polycarbonate Lenses

This is the most popular form of high-index lenses. Polycarbonate lenses are durable, sturdy, strong, and they will significantly improve your vision. Polycarbonate lenses were created for the canopies that were used in fighter planes. If these lenses were designed for this purpose, then they have to be good enough to protect your eyes, right?

Coating: Scratch-Resistant

If you do choose to wear high-index lenses, you should not wear them without adding a scratch-resistant coating. Since high-index lenses are plastic lenses, they will be more likely to scratch.

However, you can avoid wearing glasses covered in scratches when you add a scratch-resistant coating. When your glasses are scratched, your glasses will not look appealing and you will not be able to see as well because the scratches will impair your vision.

With a coating that will prevent scratches, you will not have to worry about being extra careful and you will not have to worry about small or big scratches on your lenses. Another great benefit of a scratch-resistant coating is that you will usually be able to have a warranty on them.

If you are worried about big or small scratches, you will definitely want to make the investment in purchasing scratch-resistant coating. It is important that you remember that a scratch-resistant coating will not mean your lenses will never get scratches on them; there is still a chance that your lenses could be scratched. However, a scratch-resistant coating can give you better protection.

If you have been searching for the appropriate lenses for your vision needs, have you thought about giving high-index lenses a chance? If you have a strong prescription and the glasses you are wearing are not giving you the protection and the vision correction you need, you should ask your eye doctor about high-index lenses.
