New “high-index” materials mean that your lenses can be made thinner, lighter and better looking. This is especially good news if you have a high power prescription. No longer will you need to wear thick unsightly lenses or have your choice of frames restricted.

The most popular material is the 1.6 Index Aspheric (supplied from leading manufacturers such as Zeiss, Kodak, Hoya, Pentax and Tokai). This can be up to 55% flatter, up to 40% lighter and up to 36% thinner than conventional lenses. We can calculate with a high degree of accuracy just how thin your lenses will be before ordering. All high index lenses are multicoated to reduce annoying reflections and improve cosmetic appearance.
