Have you ever wondered why your pair of lenses are thicker than a previous pair?
Perhaps your lenses have gotten heavier over the years, and you often wonder why?
Let us provide a little background behind the result you see with your new prescription glasses. Island Optical can offer ideas and suggestions so that your next pair of glasses may be thinner and lighter as a result.
~ Let’s get into the THICK of it ~
Firstly, the stronger the power of correction required, the thicker the lenses need to be. WHY? An increase in the curvature of the lenses is required to provide that increase in magnification.
Remember the rule of thumb: For EVERY prescription increase required, an increase in curvature and thickness is necessary. Even a slight change in prescription can result in noticeable differences from one pair of glasses to the next.
Can anything be done to improve the look of my lenses?
