LENS MATERIAL, INDEX AND COATINGS

LENS MATERIAL AND INDEX

  • Plastic 1.5 is the most commonly used index and material
  • Plastic 1.6 is slightly thinner and lighter than a 1.5
  • Plastic 1.67 is thinner and lighter than a 1.6
  • Plastic 1.74 is the thinnest and lightest of all
  • Trivex/PNX 1.53 is a very light and durable material that we would always recommend using in semi-rimless and rimless frames.  This material comes with a 2 year anti-breakage guarantee.


Our experienced staff can do a lens calculation that will allow you to see how thick your lenses will look in your frame and can advise you of the best material to use based on your prescription and frame.
