Do you have a high prescription?

Here some important tips before choose the adequate type of lenses for you. 

A strong prescription can sometimes mean a thick, plastic lens. But hi-index lens material will reduce lens thickness, making lenses more comfortable and better looking. Essilor offers hi-index 1.67 and 1.74 lenses that are thinner and lighter than plastic, so you can be sure you have the best of both worlds—comfort and style.


Polycarbonate lens material outperforms plastic and hi-index when it comes to impact resistance, which makes it a good option for children and teenagers. Plus, Essilor’s polycarbonate lenses are 20% thinner, 30% lighter, and 12x more impact resistant than standard plastic lenses.

Ask one of our optician on your next visit, which will be the best lens for you.
