If you do love the fashionable and stylish frames, high-index lenses are a great choice for those types of frames. One of the downsides of high-index lenses is how easily the lenses can scratch. However, you do not have to let this downside stop you. You have the option of choosing to add an anti-reflective coating or a scratch-resistant coating that will give you the best protection from scratches.
