What Type of Lenses Should I Get for a High Prescription?High prescriptions are a big problem for people looking for a stylish pair of glasses. If you struggle with lens thickness and eye distortion in your glasses (making your eyes look bigger or smaller than they are), then high index lenses are a good choice for you.

High index lenses will cut down the thickness of your lenses significantly, giving them a more attractively thin profile. This will also cut down on the weight of the lenses and reduce the eye distortion effect that comes along with thick lenses. High index lenses come in a variety of indexes, allowing you to choose based on your budget and the amount of thinness you’re looking for.

High index lenses make your lenses thinner because they’re more efficient at bending light than regular index lenses. In other words, the higher your lens’s index, the less lens it takes to make the same prescription. Less material = lighter weight. Less thickness = less eye distortion.

If you’re wondering what type of lenses you should get for a high prescription, here’s what you should know:

  • High index lenses reduce your lens thickness, giving them a sleeker profile.
  • The higher your lens index, the thinner your lenses will be.
  • High index lenses mean thinner, lighter lenses, which will be more comfortable and look better from the side.
  • Thinner lenses also reduce eye distortion caused by strong prescriptions. You will get less of the “bug-eyes” or “tiny-eyes” look. The effect that makes the line of your face seem offset will also be reduced.
  • What type of lenses should you get for a high prescription? High index lenses are definitely the way to go.

If you are looking for the thinnest and most lightweight lenses that will look sleek and attractive, high index lenses are for you.
