We are constantly keeping up with the new options in the optical world.
Availability of new high index lenses
One of the “newer” high index options not available everywhere is the 1.90 High Index Glass. It is very thin and attractive when made with extremely high prescriptions. As with other high index glass materials, this glass has its perks and trade-offs. 1.90 high index glass is the thinnest lens material in existence, giving you the sleekest profile on your glasses and eliminating virtually all eye distortion (bug-eyes, shrunk eyes) associated with high prescriptions. It is very scratch-resistant, so the glasses will last a long time with virtually no signs of wear. The material is also extremely brittle, heavier than plastic, and prone to optical distortion. Those with the highest prescriptions who want the thinnest lenses possible should consider 1.90 high index glass.
