While using the right defogger for glasses may spell the difference between a clear and a foggy view, picking the right lenses and coatings is crucial to achieving crystal clear vision. Whether you need a new prescription or have decided to transition from contact lenses to eyeglasses, we’re here to help you navigate your lens options.
Your Options for Lenses and Coatings
Gone are the days when strong prescriptions require lenses as thick as Coke bottles. Since hi-index lenses are made from hi-tech plastic that refracts light differently than regular plastic lenses, they allow vision correction with thinner and lighter lenses.
However, glasses with hi-index lenses cost more than those with standard lenses. So, if you’re willing to pay a little extra for greater comfort and a better look, hi-index lenses are your best bet.
Besides being known for their superior impact resistance, polycarbonate lenses are also thinner and lighter in weight than standard plastic lenses. Moreover, these lenses have built-in ultraviolet protection, making them the lens material of choice for safety, sports, and children’s lenses.
It’s important to note that while polycarbonate lenses are super tough to break, people with high astigmatism may not feel comfortable wearing them because these lenses have a low Abbe value.
Abbe value refers to the number of chromatic aberrations in a lens. The higher the number, the better the quality of vision you’ll get through the lens.
Photochromatic lenses save you the trouble of carrying a separate pair of prescription sunglasses because they change to a dark tint in the sunlight and turn clear indoors.
