EYE ADVICE Optometry Clinics


(B)Myopia (Short-sightedness)

When the power of the lenses is small, normal index (i.e. 1.5) stock single vision lenses can be used as the thickness of the lenses at the edges would be acceptable. The edge thickness of the lenses is less when a smaller frame size is used. In the higher powers of myopia, high index lenses are needed to minimise the edge thickness of the lenses. Glass lenses have been available up to 1.8 index for many years. However, it is only in recent years that manufacturers have produced a variety of high index lenses in plastic. Compared to glass, high index plastic lenses are significantly lighter, are much more resistant to breakage and unlike glass lenses, contain a UV filter. Plastic lenses now come in a variety of indexes up to 1.74.
