All about our lens thickness

Standard 1.5:

These are basic lenses that have a refraction index of 1.5.  They are the simplest lenses and are included in the frame price!  Suitable for prescriptions of SPH (-5 to +4) and CYL (+/- 2).

Polycarbonate lenses 1.59:

These lenses are thinner and lighter than conventional plastic eyeglass lenses. Polycarbonate lenses are up to 10 times more impact-resistant than regular plastic lenses thereby making these lenses an excellent choice for children’s glasses, sports eyewear and safety glasses.  These lightweight lenses also offer 100% UV (ultraviolet). Suitable for prescriptions of SPH (-8 to +4) and CYL (+/- 2).

As Thin As Possible 1.74:
