How thin can I get my lenses (Lens Thickness Guide)
High index lenses are thinner, more powerful lenses. They're lightweight and stylish, but are mostly reserved for those with higher vision correction needs. We provide a default lens of 1.56 refractive index. This is generally ideal for most prescriptions; while most prescriptions are compatible with more than one specific index, it's up to you to decide which one fits your personal needs
What is the difference & What lens thickness should I get?
The difference between your glasses' lens index can make a huge impact. Deciding which you should get depends on your prescription and your lifestyle. Thicker lenses are more affordable, but can only accommodate lower vision correction needs. Thinner lenses are lightweight (and more stylish!) and can accommodate many kinds of vision needs, including higher prescriptions.
