High Index Lenses
High index materials are named because they have a higher index of light refraction. They can accomplish the same optical job that glass or CR-39 does, but with less lens material, making high index lenses thinner and/or lighter than traditional lenses. For those of you that are severely near sighted, high index lenses help avoid having “soda bottle” lenses. Not only are the lenses lighter, but they are also thinner, making them more comfortable to wear and more comfortable for your eyes as they work. Our trained opticians will go over all of your options because there are several. But as a rule of thumb, the higher the index of refraction, the thinner the lens.
Parking is available directly east of the practice in the Kirkwood Station parking garages.
